Masterclass 52: Latest storytelling platforms
One of the great challenges journalism faces is to find new ways of storytelling
Why do we need to do that?
We also explore MyHistro, which lets you build multimedia timelines around a theme or story, apply them to a Google map, and embed them anywhere you like.
I'm not going to pretend that I've fully roadtested these two platforms, but from what I've seen I think they deserve serious consideration by anyone who wants to develop their new media storytelling. So this is very much a first look.
We also consider Conweets, which is more accurately described as a story-gathering device rather than a platform on which to tell those stories.
Conweets lets you track conversations between two Twitter users, or identify and follow any of the conversations a given user is having.
With so much news being made on Twitter, Conweets is a great device for easily following the conversations in which stories can be found.
