Are you using Storify.com to report, write, and follow what’s going in the world and in social media? Chicagotalks has a plug-in for that, and we hope you will try it out for yourself. You create your Storify.com curated item first in Storify. Remember to add your own words and don’t just sling together a string of Tweets. Then when you you login in and go to post a story, you will see the Storify icon among the writing tools.
Click the Storify icon, login to Storify, and then it’s simple to choose the item you want to submit to Chicagotalks.org.
Are you new to Storify or haven’t heard of it? It’s a platform that helps locate and provides automatic attribution and links to various social media and internet posts, including photos and Facebook news. Take a tour and then take a try at using it.
One thing to note: you have to save your post as a draft and then view the post to see how your Storify will actually look in Chicagotalks. Here is a little demo of how it works:
