Scribd is like YouTube for Documents

03.07.2007 @ 3:29 PM in Technology


Scribd is a brand new (came out of private beta yesterday) document sharing service with the aim to be the YouTube of text. From the company that started reddit, scribd offers a social community centered around uploaded documents that can be shared in an enormously accessible amount of ways. Here's some features:
  1. Upload your documents from a variety of formats: .doc (Microsoft Word), .pdf (Adobe Acrobat), .txt (Plain text), .ppt (Microsoft Powerpoint), .xls (Microsoft Excel), .ps (Adobe postscript), .lit (MS reader ebook), or copy and paste
  2. Tag your documents: the almighty tag works in scribd just like YouTube, helping you organize and find your content.
  3. Analytics: Find out who is reading your uploads, how often, and where they are in the world.
  4. Download in a variety of formats: In as many formats as you can upload, you can download, too. Scribd makes great use of Macromedia Adobe flashpaper, allowing you to view your documents online, or embed them in another site with ease. Another great feature is audio playback (powered by nuance); you can listen to your document being read, or download the reading as an mp3.
The social network 2.0 craze is booming, and Scribd looks like a great addition; but will it last? Here's an example of the flashpaper embed at work... [kml_flashembed movie="" height="500" width="462" /] Via - TechCrunch
