14 Great Tools to Create Engaging Infographics and Images for your Social Media Posts - - The Buffer Blog | Nonprofit Storytelling | Scoop.it
It wasn’t long ago that Twitter added inline image previews to its official apps, including the web view. Now, Twitter is including more image focus in the latest redesign. On the left-hand side of Twitter’s new web view, your profile and header images are now visible. We’ve done tests on our own Twitter account previously that showed images [...]

Karen Dietz's curator insight, June 30, 10:46 AM

This is a great SlideShare piece by Lusko advocating that any business -- whether you are a startup or an established brand -- can use storytelling to grow.


I like the points made here about the kinds of stories you can tell, along with the list of customer personas that make your story crafting easier.


I just wish they had described the archetypes more! But never fear -- just Google the archetype and you'll have  wealth of information. Or use Carol Pearson's book The Hero And The Outlaw for a complete explanation (I have no financial ties to Carol).


So grab this piece and hone your stories!


This review was written by Karen Dietz for her curated content on business storytelling at www.scoop.it/t/just-story-it

The Quipu Project: a framework for participatory interactive documentary

The Quipu Project: a framework for participatory interactive documentary | Nonprofit Storytelling | Scoop.it

"The interactive documentary focuses on the case of forced sterilisation in Peru, which affected indigenous communities in isolated parts of the country. These factors were taken into consideration when developing the project. Unlike some other interactive documentaries, which focus on high end websites, the first audience of this project was the connected community. They wanted to tell the story with them, not about them."

Social Media Best Practices for Infographics

Social Media Best Practices for Infographics | Nonprofit Storytelling | Scoop.it

Sharing your infographic that’s hosted on your website/blog and engaging the social sharing potential is key to maximizing the work you put in to creating your infographics.  

Each social network has different image display requirements.

For example, tall infographics do not present well on Facebook. Facebook outlines horizontal images and a ratio of 1200 w x 627 h, meaning you may need to create some sharing images to drive social viewers to the main infographic.

 

The team at Lemonly put together a great infographic covering keys for social sharing on:

FacebookTwitterPinterestLinkedIn

Have a look and bookmark for future reference...
