Max Follmer "[...] with rapidly increasing competition for viewers, growing smartphone and tablet penetration, and the emergence of new platforms, marketing and creative teams are increasingly playing an important role in developing “storyworlds,” experiences that bridge the gap between marketing and content and lay out the mythology, characters, setting, backstories, and events that drive a show."

Debbie Elicksen 's insight:

An interesting discussion. Teachers can use social media to engage a class, post assignments for peer review, etc, such as a Facebook page that they can keep private within the class. 

 

We have clients and our bosses in our Facebook, Twitter, and other sites. Is it any different for teachers and students? Maybe that is the best way to keep the relationship honest. If there was a creep factor, that would show its face in a hurry.

Andrew Raimist's curator insight, February 28, 10:06 PM

Kurt Vonnegut's rejected anthropology thesis proposed that the shapes of a culture's stories was at least as important as the shapes of their pots and spearheads.


I've been interested about the potential relationship of literary form to visual form, how we understand them logically, intellectually and emotively. How could a drawing, painting or work of architecture express the ideas contained in a work of literature through the use of form?


You can see Vonnegut discuss his ideas on the shapes of stories in this clip on YouTube:

Karen Dietz's curator insight, February 4, 10:22 AM

Here's what I think is important about this article: if you want to be a wildly influential leader that gets stuff done, here are the 6 things to pay attention to.


Now the question is -- how do you actually do these 6 things? One path is learning to tell effective and compelling stories. Stories that move people to action because of their carefully crafted endings (see our new book Business Storytelling for Dummies for how to do that). Then check out Paul Smith's book Lead With A Story on the variety of stories leaders need to tell 


Building story skills will help you show your strength, connect empathically, inspire with vision, spark taking action, and instill confidence -- everything this article identifies.


Dig into storytelling. Build those skills. Doing so, you will be come a compelling leader.

Facebook's Paper vs. Flipboard: Comparing Mobile News Curation Apps

Facebook's Paper vs. Flipboard: Comparing Mobile News Curation Apps | Transmedia Storytelling for Business | Scoop.it

Excerpt from article by Mashable:
"How each story is told is as important as the story itself," begins the promo video for Facebook's new much-hyped Paper app.
The app mixes curated news feeds with your Facebook timeline to create a platform that integrates news discovery and sharing into your timeline.

With its tiled layout and gesture-based user interface, it feels very similar to Flipboard's suite of apps. We put both apps side by side to see how the two stack up. Here's how they compare:

Design: Tiles And Gestures

Both use a tiled layout that displays news in a grid. But while Flipboard's design puts content first, Paper puts Facebook first, emphasizing interacting with your Facebook friends and timeline whenever possible.
Both apps rely heavily on gestures for navigation.

News: Curation vs. Aggregation

When it comes to finding and reading news, the two apps take very different approaches. Simply put, Flipboard is an aggregator while Paper is a curator.
Flipboard, with its customized RSS, topic-based feeds and themed magazines, places importance on personalization first, discovery second.
Paper puts discovery first, telling users what stories they should pay attention to, while emphasizing interacting with friends on Facebook.
Users can subscribe to the app's topic-based news sections, create customized "magazines" based around their interests, or use the app like an RSS feed to subscribe to specific sources.

Getting Social

Sharing and social media integration is at the heart of any news discovery app. Unsurprisingly, social media integration with Flipboard is much more subtle, while Paper puts Facebook front and center.
Facebook may be venturing into the news curation business with Paper, and it may be one of the first of many standalone apps from the social media giant, but the company is still very much emphasizing Facebook as the vehicle for news curation and discovery.

Wrapping It Up

Flipboard is great for collecting all the news you want to read from the sources you like. And if you rely on Flipboard as an aggregator, Paper won't be a replacement. Paper is more of a Facebook app than a "news" app, and it's best suited for those looking to share and discover content with friends.

Flipboard is available for web, iOS, Android, Windows Phone 8, BlackBerry, Kindle Fire and Nook. Paper is currently iPhone only..."
