Storify Beta Preview – Viewer Count

Storify Beta Preview Screenshot

Storify is another blogging platform. If you use Zemanta, a WordPress plug-in, you’ve seen context sensitive articles and photos displayed to click and add to your posts. Storify takes it up a notch by providing a blogging platform where everything is added by search.

Storify describes its self as follows:

Storify is a way to tell stories using social media such as Tweets, photos and videos. You search multiple social networks from one place, and then drag individual elements into your story. You can re-order the elements and also add text to give context to your readers.

Let me give you one reason why you might like Storify – view tracking.

Shown are the views for a Storify article. At the top if the total views, beneath, sorted by view count, is the number of views on each site.

The counts are not broken down to show the actual post URL on the site referenced. Interestingly, since the embed is a script, this will record views any place the content is shared.

View count is important to follow article traction.  Numbers only at this point, Storify could easily provide a view count graph and increase the value to content creators.

Look forward to another post or two on the Storify interface and creating a blog post.
