Storify at SXSW: Build "automagic" stories with your social media, come by and see us IRL

At SXSW we're introducing a new feature: stories that are built for you. All you do is live your social media life.


  1. Going to SXSW?

    Will you be tweeting, checking in, posting pics? Why don’t you let us Storify all that social media for you and publish the story, showing everyone your SXSW day? It’s Storify’s first automatic service, #mySXSW stories.

  3. How does it work? 

    Connect your Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, YouTube and Foursquare accounts to Storify, enable for the service, and your posts during SXSW will "automagically" create a story each day. At the end of the day, the story is published for you and you'll receive an email notification so you’re the first to see it. Then you can add your own text as narrative, move elements around, delete what you don’t like, and share your story with your friends. 

    As you enjoy SXSW, you’ll be piecing together a living scrapbook of where you checked in, what you tweeted, and what pics you posted. You don’t even have to think about pulling it all together. We do it for you. 
  4. "We wanted to give our users a head start in telling a story with Storify, so they aren't faced with an intimidating blank page," said Storify co-founder Burt Herman. "Now, you can tell your personal story with the social media from your day already there and easily shareable as a story."

    The #mySXSW stories will also have a new destination page on our site showing the best social media curated at SXSW. This page will be social media prime time, made up of the photos, updates and videos getting the most attention from Storify users.
