Welcome to Storify, where you can create stories using social media. What exactly does that mean? Well, you can turn what people post to social media (tweets, videos, photographs) and use them to create and tell your story.
I’d recommend checking out the Guided Tour to decide if this is a service you’d like to use. You can click the link I’ve provided here, or the blue Get a Tour button. (Internet Explorer is not supported, so you’ll need to use Google Chrome, Safari, or Firefox.) This will take you step-by-step through the process of how you’ll create stories on Storify.
What I really love about Storify is how easy it is to use to create with. Everything is very intuitive – you just drag and drop elements, click to add text, or click the x in the corner to delete material you no longer want in your story.
Once you’ve gone through the guided tour, you’ll need to register to save and publish your work. (Here’s the one I made during my guided tour.)
Registration is easy! You can choose to login with either your existing Facebook or Twitter account. If you don’t have a Facebook or Twitter account, or you don’t want to use that login, just click the link “I don’t have a Twitter or Facebook account” and you will be provided with a registration form. The registration form will ask you to create a username and password, as well as provide a working e-mail address, and then you can check the “I agree to the Terms & Conditions” box and click the green Sign Up button. After you’re registered and logged in you can edit, share, and publish your story with ease.
You can also check out the stories that other people have made by either looking at what is being featured on the main page, or clicking the View All link (it’s tiny and beneath the main featured section) to see all the stories.
It is really neat to see the sorts of stories that can be made through Storify so check it out today!
