WordPress Plugin: Storify

I’m a big curator of news. It doesn’t matter what the topic is; be it political, business, technology, sports, or whatever – taking advantage of the multiple streams of data across the Social InterWeb and organizing that information is what curation is all about.

There are a handful of resources out there for curation, but most of them only allow you to create a list and share it on a website or via email.

The beauty of Storify is that they allow digital publishers the ability to embed a curated list into a blog post – that’s huge !!

Earlier this month they released their WordPress plugin that makes it even easier to integrate curated stories into your blog posts.

The feature set is already awesome:

  • Embed stories with ease β€” simply paste the URL to the story, and WordPress takes care of the rest.
  • Easily add your stories to posts β€” just click the Storify button in the standard WordPress editor, and select from a list of your most recent stories.
  • Create new stories and edit existing ones right from your WordPress dashboard.
  • Adds SEO-friendly versions of your stories to each post, ensuring that your stories get properly index by search engines
  • Allows users with filtered html restrictions to embed stories.
  • Extensive API to customize the plugin’s functionality to meet your needs

Just imagine what’s next – maybe that iOS app I’ve been bugging them about πŸ™‚

I highly recommend you checking out the Storify plugin. You can read more and download it in the WordPress Plugin Repository.
