The internet has transformed how people expect to communicate. People can share instantly with each other or the world and receive immediate feedback. Conversations start in seconds and evolve as friends and readers add their opinions. It’s one of the coolest parts about the web, this open free information flow and communication.
The web has also allowed for the most interesting, the most well informed, the most provocative, and the most prolific content creators to rise above legacy sources of information (newspapers, magazines, radio). Why? We empower them by reading and interacting.
That’s one of the reasons I love Storify so much. The way they allow anyone to create a story and aggregate elements of the story from social media and other sources (while citing them, of course) is a leap in both content delivery and ease of creation for user-generated-content.
And it just got more awesome.
Storify has partnered with Livefyre to allow users to add conversation to their stories.
It’s simple: all you have to do is go to your user settings and enable Livefyre within the “Labs” section.
Try it out; let me know what you think. Oh and feel free to check out my story while you’re at it
