    Ways to use Storify
  • 5. Getting started with Storify Select “Sign up” from the home page. I’ve found it best to sign up with a twitter account. You will go through the normal Twitter authorisation. Then add in your email and a password for Storify. http://storify.com
  • 6. Creating a story in Storify Write description and transition text between media to provide context/framework. Verify the links used. Use a variety of content, images, video, tweets, links to keep interest. Include at least one image for the story icon. Create, publish, update, publish, update, publish.
