Millions of people are sharing content through social media. But these streams of information are quickly lost in the never-ending stream of updates. Storify wants to help you put together the best Tweets, photos and videos to make stories that will be remembered.
Storify opened to the public last week, aims to help journalists and others collect and filter all this information. Storify is a way to tell stories using social media such as Tweets, photos and videos. You search multiple social networks from one place, and then drag individual elements into your story. You can re-order the elements and also add text to give context to your readers.
Using the Storify website, people can find and piece together publicly available content from Twitter, Flickr, Facebook, YouTube and other sites. They can add text and embed the resulting collages of content on their own sites. During a private test period, reporters from The Washington Post, NPR, PBS and other outlets used the service.
