Storify to Launch New Site, New Features

The social network curation site Storify released a number of updates today and they’re going to make it easier to pull together bits and pieces of content from various social networks and create a story form them.

eBooknewser last covered Stroify back in April when it launched a public beta. It was a fun new service that let you build a story out of Tweets, Facebook updates, or content from Youtube, Google, RSS feeds, or even other stories on Storify.

And today it’s getting better. Storify’s email has more detail:

  • A new logo and new look. The search and the editor sides of the interface have been switched, and we have made it easier to add text to stories. Photo searches are displayed in gallery format and pictures shown larger in stories. Saving stories is more reliable.
  • A revised bookmarklet and all-new Storypad that lets you collect and save media from all over the web, and easily share what you’ve gathered with other Storify users. You can use media from anyone’s Storypad in any story.
  • Smoother drag-and-drop functionality, which makes it easier to build stories and reorganize them.
  • A collapsed view of your Storify story while it’s being built, so you can see it easily and organize it better.
