STORIFY

Tell me your story

Storify is a social network service that lets the user create stories or timelines using social media such as Twitter,Facebook and Instagram. Storify was launched in September 2010, and has been open to the public since April 2011.

Users search through multiple social networks from one place, and then drag individual elements into stories. Users can re-order the elements and also add text to help give context to the readers.

Media organizations have used Storify in coverage of ongoing news stories such as elections and meetings and events. Poynter.org recommended using Storify for covering social movements, breaking news, internet humor and memes, reactions and conversations, and extreme weather. CBC used Storify to cover the 2011 London riots,     TRT World used Storify to cover the UK general election 2015 and Al Jazeera has a show called “The Stream” that collects perspectives on news stories using Storify.

The main purpose of Storify is to allow users to create stories by importing content from various forms of media into a timeline. Users can search for content related to their story from sources such as YouTube, Twitter (one of the more popular ones), Instagram, Flickr, and Google, as well as other stories on Storify, and then drag that content into their own Storify story timelines. Users can add comments to the links that they provide within their stories, and can also embed URLs in their stories. Users can also embed their own Storify stories for content syndication elsewhere on the internet.
