If you’re an online new junkie (or a social media junkie), you’ve probably seen Storify used to present media story or events as they’ve unfolded online. But have you thought about using Storify yourself to document your department’s work? At Emory University, Wendy Darling has for the past couple of years been using Storify to document how her department and the university as a whole handles pitching big stories online, and what the results have been. When a major medical research finding is released, how does Emory present it online? Where are the news releases? Video? Tweets? Facebook posts? Media coverage? Bloggers analyzing? What’s Twitter saying? Using Storify, Wendy has created packages that, once completed, can present a clear picture of how stories played out. These packages can be shared with leadership, with professors, and with others in communications and marketing. Rather than a dry report or a list of media hits, Storify can offer an interactive, “Wow”-generating report that gives people an idea of the value of communications and marketing.
