As we have all come to learn, ordinary people from around the world have become an integral part of breaking news and event coverage. Today it isn’t just about creating content; it’s about curating content.
Storify is a unique tool, similar to a blogging platform, that gives you the tools to tell your story, and then makes it easy for you to weed through other people’s stories, posts, tweets, pictures, or videos, in order to pull in authentic sources offering different perspectives, thus making your story more credible.
Not only does Storify allow for more robust coverage of an event than you could accomplish on your own, it affords you the opportunity to give your story that magic social touch. Your friends get quoted, you get quoted, letting your story become the public’s story, and giving it momentum to go viral.
