Storify and You
Our world is surrounded in technology, and nowadays almost everybody has a profile or log in in some form of social media website. But what if you are a company with multiple profiles on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, etc…? How do we keep the endless streams of information and content in order? And how do we prevent information overload?
Storify is a startup based in San Francisco that looks into bringing a solution to this problem. Unlike sites like Tumblr, which uploads content onto multiple sites from one centralized location, Storify will organize and categorize content as well as seek out content from places like Facebook, Twitter, Flickr and other sites. It will also allow you to edit your own content onto stories, embed links and distribute all the information onto your list of contacts.
Currently, the site is primarily used by journalist and news stations whom have benefitted greatly since its initial launch. For journalist, a location where all research material and other information can be centralized is very convenient in a world that requires constant updates and knowledge of up to the minute events and news breaks. But how can a non journalist use it to cover events in their everyday life? Media Bistro has published an article discussing precisely that.
Columbia Journalism School’s dean of student affairs, Sree Sreenivasan, has recently come out with a new concept in the use of Storify to cover events done by schools, communities, business and other areas you might think of.
