Getting started

Storify lets you curate social networks to build social stories, bringing together media scattered across the Web into a coherent narrative.


  1. Storify stories begin with a headline and description. These are the two areas you see at the top of the story editor. Use these to give your readers an idea of what your story is about, as they are often what people will see first.
  2. While editing, click anywhere in the white space of your story to start adding text to it.
  3. Adding social media - Start by searching any of the "sources" you see on the right side of the story editor. Storify lets you easily embed anything from the search results into your story by dragging and dropping it in.
  4. For example, access the Twitter "source" by clicking on the Twitter logo on the right. You can do a general Twitter search in the area that appears, like typing in "storify" to see the latest Tweets talking about us. Drag and drop any search result into this story. When you're done, it looks like this:
  5. Within the Twitter source, click "Images" and your searches will only turn up tweets that contain images, like this:
  6. Or you can switch to a source like YouTube and include videos in your story, like this:
  7. Adding links to any website - You can also embed a link to any website, like the official site for a company or event, a Wikipedia page to give background on a subject, or anything else that might give your readers more information. Click the Google source to search for the right site. If you know the direct URL of something you want to embed, use the Embed URL source (the icon looks like a link) and enter it there.
  8. Publishing and embedding - While you're working on your story, it will be a Draft on your Storify account, meaning only you can view it.
  9. When you're finished, click Publish and the story will be publicly available to readers on your Storify profile. All Storify stories are embeddable, meaning you can also post them on places like your blog, Tumblr or any Web site where you can insert an embed code.
  10. Notify -
    Because your stories are social, you can also let the people who are quoted know that they are now part of your story. This is a great way to help your story spread further, as people who are quoted are likely to also share it with their friends. After your story is published, you will be prompted to use the Notify feature. Give it a try - we think you'll love the reaction you get!
  11. Editing and updating - You can reorder any "element" in your story by clicking it and dragging it around, or delete it to make room for more. Even if your story has already been published, you can always edit or keep updating it at any time. Readers will always see the latest version of what you've published. For instance, when your readers react on social networks or the story you're covering keeps unfolding, you can add new quotes or developments right away.
