E-Content Subscriptions: Scribd Surpasses 1,000,000 Subscribers Worldwide

From the Scribd Blog:

The road to one million has been an incredible journey. Scribd launched in 2007 as the first open publishing platform, offering users a simple way to upload and share content online.

In 2018, Scribd introduced an unlimited* subscription to the world’s largest library of digital content — and now, we can proudly say that more than one million paying subscribers from all over the world are reading on Scribd.
