Storify

Before starting this course, I had never heard of Storify. Well, not that I can recall of, there’s a fair few social media platforms out there.

I’ve been using social media for 10 years now, and I still get frustrated when setting up a new account.

The initial set up went smoothly, that was until it was time to start personalising and browsing.

After scratching my head, saying a few curse words, and googling a few things, I was starting to understand the world of Storify.

One thing I don’t understand is how to browse accounts properly. My browse section shows me 12 stories from featured users, stories I have no interest in.

I reviewed some of these stories, however, I ended up googling things like – ‘storify ABC’.
So some of the ones I reviewed were found this way. Hopefully I’ll gain some insight on this issue.

The accounts I reviewed were:

ABC News
SBS News
Triple J
Voice Of America (For this one, I googled ‘Storify Comedy’)
CMG National News
Scholastic
Travelandleisure
BBC_Features

I would of reviewed a lot more if I was able to browse them without having to google things. I was having a tough time thinking of possible accounts.

I wasn’t entirely sure what Storify was like, but it’s a lot simpler than I imagined – a sigh of relief. It’s definitely a smart way to group things together without having to go here, there, and everywhere on the web.

I’m looking forward to doing my first story.
