Scribd Introduces Snapshots, a New Discovery Tool for Non-Fiction Books
We’re excited to introduce Snapshots, a new content offering that helps readers discover nonfiction books on Scribd. The literary equivalent of a movie trailer, Snapshots are created by Scribd and designed to offer key insights of a book in about 15 minutes to spark subscribers’ interest in reading the book in its entirety. Snapshots are available exclusively on Scribd in both text and audio format and included within the Scribd membership.
Snapshots originally launched in beta earlier this year, with positive reception. Currently, there are over 500 Snapshots available on the platform—all created by Scribd’s in-house editorial content team—which have been read over 20,000 times.
