Today was my first experience using Storify. With a quick click of the “browse” button, I was immediately presented with the trending stories other Storify users had added, based on what was of popular interest in social media and news. One such story that captured my animal loving heart was of the unnecessary killing of Cecil the Lion.
Once I got over the initial shock of such an atrocity, I was then overwhelmed with how useful this application could be, not only in the way we received our news and have our say, but how quickly global we can make such topics and what an actual difference this could make to finding solutions on a grand scale. This was further cemented by the fact that celebrities access and comment just like the ‘common man’, giving the element of celebrity endorsement that could potentially help fix what could have been a dire and hidden issue.
In conclusion, Storify = answer.
