  1. At Storify, we always have our ears (and APIs) open to new developments and feedback. After hearing about Google's "Authorship" information and the need for brands to connect their Facebook Pages to Storify recently, we got to work bringing both of these to the service. Check 'em out!
  2. Google Authorship

  3. Have you ever seen results like these pop up when doing a Google search?
  4. These info-rich results are what you get if you use "Google Authorship," Google's way to connecting you to any content you're contributing (or "authoring") on the web.
  5. If you have a Google+ profile, you can now have your author info show up for Storify content you've created! Here's how:
  6. Step 1: Connect your Google+ account in Settings
  7. • In the "Contributor to" area, click "Add custom link"
    • In the "Label" field, type "Storify"
    • In the "URL" field, type your Storify profile URL
  8. Step 3: Wait for Google to process your connection
  9. It can take up to 24 hours for Google to recognize your contributor connection and change its search results. When it does, your Google Authorship information will be associated with your Storify stories!
  10. Google Authorship connection is available today and free for all Storify accounts. 
  11. Connect Facebook Pages to your Storify profile

  12. With the launch of Storify Business this year, we've seen a massive amount of brands, businesses and PR agencies using Storify in new ways.

    One bit of feedback we got right away was that they'd like to customize their Storify profile by linking the brand's Facebook Page to is (and be able to share Storify content to the page directly). Now any Storify Business account can do this by following these steps:
  13. Step 1: Connect your personal Facebook account in Settings
  14. Note: If you already had your personal Facebook account connected, you will need to unlink and reconnect it to use this.
  15. Step 2: Authorize Storify and select your Facebook Page
  16. That's it! Your Storify Business profile will now display a link to your brand's Facebook Page, and choosing to share stories to Facebook when publishing will send them to your Page's wall instead of your personal Facebook account.
  17. Facebook Page authorization is live now and available to all Storify Business accounts.

    We hope you enjoy these new ways of getting connected to Storify. Questions or comments? Leave them on the story here or reach out to Support via our Help area any time.

    Thanks!
