Storify is being used by the communications department. It addresses the challenge of visually portraying our social media program to our board members.
  • Pull media from all online sources
  • Provide links for easy access to content
  • Display content in a pleasing and straightforward format
  • Better searchablility of web content
  • Notification if links in stories are no longer active
  • Suggestions for similar Storify users to follow
In my experience, Storify is best used for visually portraying a multi-media conversation and highlighting resources.
  • Increased employee efficiency
  • Better customer service
  • Increased communication between teams
  • Paperli
Storify is prettier and more comprehensive.

Storify is being used in my Convergent Journalism II class, which is our capstone journalism class. I require all my students to produce one Storify news story, where they have to cover a current event via social media evidence. This assignment teaches students how to use social media for evidence and facts. We spend time in class working with Storify, conducting searches via Storify and, once students get comfortable using Storify, they begin working on their individual stories.

I have also talked with some of my colleagues who teach other journalism and social media classes, and they are assigning Storify assignments in their classes for the first time this fall.
  • Allows journalists to search diverse social media outlets.
  • Enables journalists to cover social-media related events as they unfold.
  • Makes writing online stories easy, with very simple skills.
  • Allows journalists to create accurate stories with evidence/examples from YouTube, Twitter, Instagram, etc.
  • Maybe a more detailed search engine/method.
  • It would be nice if we could search Facebook/Instagram, etc. even if the user does not have a FB/Instagram account.
  • Offer users a simple video tutorial on how to conduct searches for various social media.
I am already recommending Storify to my journalism colleagues and at least three of them are using Storify this fall based on my recommendation. I have also recommended it to a colleague who teaches strategic communication, as Storify has great potential for advertising & PR.
  • Positive feedback from students who knew nothing about Storify.
  • Teaching journalism students an essential skill in this social media-driven media market.
  • Positive feedback from colleagues who also knew little or nothing about Storify and its potential.
I honestly can't compare it to other products as I have not used anything close to Storify. We use blogs like WordPress and Blogger, but that is very different from Storify.

We use Storify in several different capacities, most notably as a recap of each one of our football games. We curate social media activity from fans and commentators as the game is happening, resulting in a recap that displays all of the real-time emotion of the ups and downs of the game, presented from a fan's perspective. This form of a recap results in much more engaging and fun for fans to read than traditional sports recaps.

We also use Storify on a smaller scale to provide weekly snapshots of what happened across all of our 19 sports properties.
  • Storify displays images and video quite well in its stream, fully capturing all of the different media users of social are deploying across Twitter, Instagram, etc.
  • Storify also does a nice job embedding full YouTube videos and links to editorial content, integrating it seamlessly into the feed in a visual manner that is easy to digest.
  • Our Storify stories embed nicely into our website, enhancing our game coverage by appearing on the same pages as the game stats, highlights, etc., while also allowing us to surround the content with our own advertising.
  • Storify should add a TweetDeck like function for live content curation. During a game, I have a TweetDeck window open to monitor multiple search terms and accounts, and when I see something I want to add to my Storify, I have to manually type that term or handle into Storify to pull it in. Content isn't as "discoverable" as it could be.
  • Storify could pull in content more quickly. From the time I see a post published to the time I'm able to access it in Storify is usually ~20-30 seconds, and sometimes longer, which is an eternity when curating reaction to a fast-paced, live event.
  • The notify feature is funky and it's harder to notify ALL users who have been featured in a Storify once you get beyond the first handful that are available in the pop-up "notify" feature.
Storify is particularly well suited to a narrative collection of social posts. It is wonderful for telling a story. It also does a great job of displaying text AND image posts in a single stream in a way that is easily consumable.

It is not as good for non-linear needs such as general insights from a conference or convention, for example. There are better solutions on the market like Tint or RebelMouse.
  • Storify allows me to quantify views and reach, specifically to present what events receive the most attention.
  • Because I am able to curate in real-time (relatively easily) and because the platform publishes quickly, I can post our Storify social recaps immediately after the conclusion of our games to maximize the sharing by fans who are "high" in the moment. Allows us to capitalize on emotion.
I addressed this in an earlier comment, but Storify is truly the best that I have found for displaying things in a narrative form. Other alternatives are more visually pleasing (like Tint, RebelMouse), but don't handle the narrative form so well. Those other platforms also do not display text only social posts quite as well.

Storify has been a vital asset for my line of work. The user experience has been nothing but a tremendous godsend for gathering content together for projects. I have used Storify many times to help gather social media content together. Storify has been a very reliable tool to help your business gather content. I have used Storify in not only for my current employer but companies I have worked for in the past and it has been such a great marketing tool. I will continue to use and share my experience with Storify with colleagues and friends.
  • Excellent content gathering capabilities
  • User experience
  • Helpful customer support
  • No weaknesses
Storify is a very well suited program to gather content in any capacity. I have used Storify in different employer settings and the experience has translated well across different work situations. The program works especially well in newsroom/journalism settings but it has also been an asset in regards to digital marketing.
  • Increased user engagement
I have not used any other product but Storify.

In my role as Assistant Director, Alumni Marketing and Communications at the Harvard Business School, I use Storify on a weekly basis to capture our social media activity on Twitter. I wouldn't say it solves a problem. Rather, it provides us with a great opportunity to better engage with our alumni.
  • Provides a way to chronicle engagement in a linear fashion
  • Is a great way to display user-generated content.
  • There are times when the site is down and this can be problematic.
It's great when it comes to event coverage. See http://storify.com/hbsalumni/hbsreunion2013-day-1.
  • It's been very positive since it helps expand our reach even further amongst our alumni.
None. I came across it a few years ago and didn't feel any need to switch to another platform.
It's just been a great way to capture conversations and such that occur over many hours, even days.
