Storify Enterprise delivers on what our users have long wanted: true collaboration that enables everyone to easily tell stories together.
San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) October 07, 2014
Livefyre, provider of the leading real-time content and audience engagement platform, today announced through a company blog post that it has released a new version of Storify, marking the most significant update since it was acquired in 2013. The redesigned Storify platform offers a powerful method for social storytelling and now includes new enhancements that help individual bloggers and freelance reporters, editorial staffs and brand marketing teams capture real-time content and create compelling stories right as they unfold using curated social media.
ANNOUNCING STORIFY ENTERPRISE
Storify Enterprise (formerly Storify VIP), offers significantly enhanced real-time collaboration capabilities, enabling multiple users to simultaneously add text or content in real-time, see who else is working on a story at any moment and access editing history to clearly identify what changes were made by whom.
“Covering stories has always been a collaborative process, and that’s even more true when you’re sifting through huge volumes of social media for a breaking story or brand campaign. While part of the team seeks out great photos and quotes, others craft the story and give context,” explained Burt Herman, co-founder of Storify and vice president of editorial at Livefyre. “Storify Enterprise delivers on what our users have long wanted: true collaboration that enables everyone to easily tell stories together.”
Additional features for Storify Enterprise users include:
-18 social sources for content including Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Tumblr, Google, Soundcloud, RSS and more
-Autosave with every keystroke
-Undo/redo support, allowing users to undo or redo changes as far back as the start of the session
-Private stories shareable via a secure link — ideal for internal reports, company communications or personal research
-Full customization and unrestricted API access, so embedded stories can align with any site’s brand and styling
-Enterprise technical support via email or phone
-Real-time updates as content creators publish changes or updates to live or ongoing stories, meaning readers don’t have to refresh the page
-Google Analytics integration
