Storify

Make the Web Tell a Story

Use Storify’s popular drag-and-drop editing tools directly inside your WordPress dashboard to seamlessly post Storify stories on your blog. This WordPress plugin makes it easy to quickly create posts with Storify without leaving the WordPress interface, incorporating social media and links from anywhere on the web right into your blog’s content.

The Storify story editor helps you quickly find tweets, photos and video from social networks that can instantly be embedded in your blog posts via drag and drop. Search Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, Instagram and other major social networks for reactions to news, events and conferences all in one place. Crowdsource material for your blog by calling out to your audience on social networks, and collect the best media using Storify.

The items in your Storify stories are automatically formatted to maintain proper display requirements and attribution info, and you can optionally notify the people whose tweets were quoted in your story, helping draw more traffic to your content. After being initially published, Storify stories can be continuously updated so your readers will always see the latest version, allowing you to use Storify for liveblogging, breaking news or community galleries that bring repeat visits and strong reader engagement.

Please note a Storify account is required for plugin functionality, and you will be prompted to create a free account if you don’t already have one when first using the plugin. For more information, see http://wordpress.org/plugins/storify/faq/
