JRNL 10 – Workshop

Curation – Storify

Prof. Vaccaro * Hofstra University

  • Storify lets you curate social networks to build social stories, bringing together media scattered across the Web into a coherent narrative.
  • They are building the story layer above social networks, to amplify the voices that matter and create a new media format that is interactive, dynamic and social.
create your own stories
Create your own stories
  • Search for social media elements — In the Storify editor, you can search social media networks to find media elements about the topic you want to Storify. Look through Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, Flickr, Instagram and more to gather material for your stories.
curate the elements
Curate the elements
  • Drag and drop status updates, photos or videos to bring together the social media elements that will best illustrate your story.
  • You can always reorder elements in your story, or delete them if you find something better.
  • And you can always add more items later on. Your story is always editable, so you can pull in the latest from the social web.
write your own narrative
Write your own narrative
  • A Storify story is more than just a collection of elements from social media. It's also your opportunity to make sense of what you've pulled together.
  • You can write a headline, introduction and insert text anywhere inside your story.
  • You can add headers, hyperlinks and styled text. Build a narrative and give context to your readers.
embed stories anywhere
Embed stories anywhere
  • Storify stories can be embedded anywhere on the Web by simply pasting an embed code, just like embedding a video. You can also connect Storify to your Wordpress or Drupal blog, publish to Tumblr or Posterous, or send an email newsletter through Mailchimp.
go viral
Go viral
  • Storify isn’t just about pulling media from social networks, it’s about spreading stories too. Storify helps your story go viral by making it easy to notify all the people quoted in your story, so they will know they are now part of something larger.
  • These links are highly likely to be shared further on social networks and draw a response.
discover stories
Discover stories
  • Our front page displays the latest and best stories built with social media by our users. You can read a story and interact with its elements, share it, find similar stories and more stories from that author.
