Jacob Lewis is a man who helped create the beta version of the Web site Figment with Dana Goodyear. He visualized this website as a Facebook type website for teenagers. He felt that it could be the social networking for young adult fiction. As he began making the “new” Facebook he realized that people did not want a new Facebook and it was not going to succeed. The website will be unveiled on Monday as an experiment in online literature. It is a place where young people can read and write fiction on their computers and on their cell phones. Poems, short stories, and novels will be posted and readers and other writers can comment and help each other out. “We wanted people to be able to write whatever they wanted in whatever form they wanted,” Mr. Lewis said.
