Andrew Pipes:  "Interactive guides take a different approach to presenting content compared to traditional web articles or TV and radio programmes online. They organise video and audio, rich infographics, written summaries, and activities into stories that make the most of our interactive medium."

Rescooped by Andy Bull from Storytelling, Social Media and beyond!

Social Media has Evolved into the Art of Storytelling, and We Must All Become Masters of it.

This piece was written by Lauren Fisher for Simply Zesty - Lots of good insights and resources. I'm paraphrasing what caught my attention from the perspective of brand storytelling and how important narrative is in today's marketplace.


Social media now as an essential form of communication, another side we don't often consider is its role in the evolution of storytelling. Throughout nearly every society and stage in history, storytelling has had a crucial role to play.

How this applies to social media

**we are now all storytellers, telling a story about ourselves through social media that plays a crucial role in the way in which others perceive us, but also, interestingly, how our own lives are preserved.

Here's my takeaway:

**It's important for brands to tell stories that speak to their consumer's needs and core values. Stories that are constantly evolving and living in real time because of digital technology and social networking .

**Stories become conversations that can lead to transactions and brand loyalty

Those brands or individuals that are succeeding the most in social media are those that are able to tell the best stories through digital means, in the most interesting ways.

Some people understand this better than others. Some for example understand the need to constantly create new ‘chapters’ in the story, to use social media constantly to share and create information so that our own personal timelines or stories consistently grow and provide entertainment.

Not only building up a more complete history of ourselves, but a more adept form of entertainment at the time. In just a few years we will have mastered the art of social media and that means we will have become masters of storytelling.

********The consequences of this for society are wide-reaching and most importantly, fundamental for connecting societies and individuals in a completely new way.
