Storify is a great way to curate articles and web content on any given topic. It’s claim to fame is the ability curate and capture reactions from social media in real time. The drag and drop framework allows you to search keywords and hashtags, to create posts around a particular topic. Storify allows you to organize and share research on topic by curating web based content including photos, and reactions across social media in real time. You can curate your results and share them on social media or embed them in your blog or web-based presentations.
Storify started as a tool for bloggers and citizen journalists curate video, articles, Tweets, Facebook comments, Flickr photos into multimedia story. It has since grown in popularity and is currently being used by internationally recognized brands, conferences, local non-profit organizations as well as independent journalists and major news outlets.
The framework has become more user friendly but there is still a learning curve. To get the most out of your time, you will need to link your social media accounts and get comfortable with how to search, publish and share. Beware of the tablet/iPad app, I have downloaded it several times on my iPad and not only does it unexpectedly close but when its open it does not work as planned. Overall this is a great tool for live tweeting, events, conferences and curating content.
