A San Francisco startup Storify, which represents a new way of telling stories using online media, appears to be gaining momentum with an infusion of $2 million in angel funding. Storify allow journalists (or anyone else) to put together a story around a gathering of Tweets, Flickr photos, Facebook status updates, YouTube videos and other materials. Once you’ve created the story, you can embed it in your blog, Facebook page or other content management system.
“This little company has built a revolutionary new platform for publishing and distributing stories. More than any other tool out there, it makes it easy for you, the writer, to add content from Twitter, Facebook, Flickr and other social media sites to your story with a simple “drop and drag” function,” writes David Weir of 7×7.com.
