Getting started

It's always fun playing with a new tool, but it's also easy to feel a little lost in the beginning. Here's a quick intro to Storify and how to use it.


  1. We recently sent out some more invites and thought it might be nice to have a tutorial of sorts to help get you started if you're feeling a little lost.
  2. Who we are and what we can do for you

    There is a lot of information streaming through the social web. Tens of thousands of Tweets, Flickr photos, YouTube videos and the like are created every day. There's a lot of good out there, compelling photos and unique voices out there that could be relevant to whatever story you're trying to tell. If you wanted to use something from the social web, you'd have to copy the text, download and re-upload the photo, worry about attribution, etc. Basically, it would be a pain. 

    This is where we come in. Storify is the glue that brings all these social media elements together easily. By using our search interface and doing some simple drag and dropping, you can create a story using any content that is online and publicly available. Every element you drag in keeps the metadata, so you don't have to worry about attribution. Our interface is easy to use and the way we format your stories is simple and clean, working in any website or blog space. We make it easy to edit and add to your story, even after it has published. 
  3. We're still in private beta and would love to hear some feedback. If you've got questions or comments, shoot us a Tweet or e-mail us at
