On Monday, April 25, Storify was officially launched. Storify is a platform that let users grab social media content from different places and weave into a new piece, with the media highlighted within the body of the new text. In Beta for several very public months, the launch was well received.
Storify is aimed at helping journalists sift through online content in real time. Storify also has implications for students. This can change the way that they do research and share what they find.
A myriad of news organizations, such as PBS and NPR tested Storify in the beta phase. organizations, such as The Washington Post, NPR and PBS used Storify while it was in its beta phase. Even international organizations have used Storify to included social media perspectives.
Storify, while new, has the potential to transform how we communicate ideas.
