10 ways journalists can use Storify | Zombie Journalism - 10 views

  •  
    When Storify appeared on the collective journalism screen a few weeks back at TechCrunch Disrupt, it inspired a lot of oohs, ahhs and speculation as to how it would work for journalists. There are similar curation tools out there, like KeepStream and Curated.by, though they focus primarily on collecting tweets (Correction: KeepStream also allows for Facebook integration). Storify, on the other hand, allows a user to organize various media (text, documents, video, images) and social media (Twitter, Facebook, etc.) into an orderly, linear presentation. The story pieces retain all of their original links and functionality - and the full presentations are embeddable on any site.  It has a very easy-to-use search for social media keywords and works using a drag-and-drop functionality. In other words - it's easy multimedia for even the most technologically challenged journalist.

The Hunt for the Ultimate Curation Tool: Cliqset is Getting Closer - 1 views

  • The Hunt for the Ultimate Curation Tool: Cliqset is Getting Closer
  • If a thousand social networks bloom, with cross-network communication and real-time replies, how will you manage to find and share the best things that your friends put into your stream? Innovative social network aggregator Cliqset launched a new version this morning that offers a very interesting answer to that question. Cliqset is a service that lets you publish and subscribe to 80 different social networks, from Twitter to YouTube to Delicious to Foursquare.
  • The service's integration of the Google-led Salmon messaging protocol lets Cliqset users message across social networks, something Cliqset hopes will be adopted by many social networks and breathe new life into the long tail. If you can message people on Status.net from inside Twitter, there's all the more reason to take a long look at Status.net's interface, for example.

  • Speaking of Tweetdeck, Cliqset says it is doing API work of its own that should enable Tweetdeck to serve up streams from 80 different social networks very soon. That sounds very cool, and like something that deserves its own coverage. Cliqset is the most sophisticated, forward looking tool for stream reading on the internet today. It's also awkward, unstable, confusing and full of more potential than actualized usefulness. But that balance changes a little more with every iteration. You should check out Cliqset - sooner or later it could win you over.
