Storify Has Competition, and It’s Called Brickflow
Brickflow allows users to search for hashtags and compile corresponding pieces of content (bricks) found across Twitter, Instagram, YouTube and Tumblr into a workable story. You can drag and drop each tile where you want it, piecing together a sensible visual narrative, and voila — you’ve got embeddable and sharable content for the Web. If the topic doesn’t need to be chronological, you can “remix” your flow and rearrange the story.
Crowdfunded via Indiegogo (with a $10,000 goal) and led by a team that includes a former Harvard University-funded startup incubator participant, a man who worked for Prezi, and a filmmaker, Brickflow released its public beta just days ago. They say they are the first social media curator allowing users to string together multiple Instagram videos in a story format. That feature alone could be a game changer for journalists.
