I’m glad to read today that Storify have made lots of changes – They say they have rebuilt it from the ground up.
Storify is a new way of blogging your life in social media – You can make stories from the social web using moments, tweets, in the realtime. Just search on a subject on various platforms such as Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, Flickr, and Google plus and make your own story!
I’ve always loved the idea of this, but to be honest most of the time, it didn’t work that well for me for various reasons, but now they have made big changes, I hoping that my problems with Storify are all over. Then instead of screen printing the results like this I can actually embed a story.
The changes are …….
- A new logo and new look. The search and the editor sides of the interface have been switched, and we have made it easier to add text to stories. Photo searches are displayed in gallery format and pictures shown larger in stories. Saving stories is more reliable.
- A revised bookmarklet and all-new Storypad that lets you collect and save media from all over the web, and easily share what you’ve gathered with other Storify users. You can use media from anyone’s Storypad in any story.
- Smoother drag-and-drop functionality, which makes it easier to build stories and reorganize them.
- A collapsed view of your Storify story while it’s being built, so you can see it easily and organize it better.
