Robin Good's insight:

 

 

Hats to Susan Mernit, who has an excellent piece on Knight Digital Media Center about how to do effective news curation and storytelling with Storify.

 

She brings in lots of relevant stories and examples showcasing how other individuals and journalists have been effectively using this news curation platform.

 

"The most successful creators of Meograph and Storify pages are united by one thing: they’re skilled editors and curators who know how to look at content posted on multiple social networks and pull out the pieces that will best help them to tell a story."

 

“Storify is the best way to gather tweets, comments, snippets and images from all around the Web and put them into one post. It's a new way of blogging that lets all your Internet friends participate.”

 

Brava Susan, great job and superglad to have intercepted you again.

 

 

Instructive. Informative. Resourceful. 8/10
