Storify: Making Your Social Stories

Magazine prints and blogs are a great way to keep up to date with all the latest gossip, news and entertainment from around the world and web. But how many times in the past few months have you read a story that has been plastered over the social web, only to be told a week later that it is the latest news. With social media being on the pulse of anything with a living pulse - blogs, just aren't as relevant and ground breaking as they used to be for bringing the latest news. But we think that could all change with a great new site called Storify.

Storify provides a super simple drag and drop user experience to create stories using elements from the web: tweets, YouTube videos, Facebook updates, SlideShare presentations, audioboo files, and so on. So you can blog on the news as it happens. It can and will set the stands high for getting the latest news. What is also great about it - you can always find the opinion your looking for to suit your story, someone will have tweeted it; you can guarantee that. Take a look below at an example we have created. Storify is relevant to social media storytelling and looks great.
