Question Anyone heard of or used Wattpad?

I stumbled across mention of Wattpad as they'd picked up some investment funding, but I've never heard of them before.

From their website:

RE: Anyone heard of or used Wattpad?

Hiya! Well I haven't really explored it myself because I'm in Select, but a really good friend of mine is doing well there. He wrote an excellent blog article all about Wattpad, its potential etc. and a quick search on his blog will probably turn up a post about his results too... but for now here's a link to the 'What is Wattpad' type article. It's David Gaughran, so it's not some random hick writing about it :0)

Hi there,
I'm a member of Wattpad but dropped out when I enrolled a book in Amazon Select (wasnt allowed to promote elsewhere) and so got out of the habit of posting there.
As a site it has a lot of potential, but like anything, it takes time to build a following. I am toying with the idea of posting snippets from my WIP to whett the appetite...but havent quite got round to it. I used to post an excerpt from an existing novel every Sunday (hence stopping when I joined Select) and the extract used to get quite a few viewings and generate comments...but then I let it all slip.
If only I had more time...
