Storify is a website that allows users to tell a story by linking material from social media platforms together. The tool allows 21st Century media professionals to bring the best elements of a story as conveyed by the social media world into one story, or one Storify.
Kurrently is a real-time social media search engine tool for status updates from Facebook, Twitter and Google+ (StatsCrop, 2012). It was created in 2010 by Gilbert Leung and is most popular in Germany (Web Stats Domain, 2011). Kurrently is easy to use with unique features to track all status topics in real-time (Sharon, 2010). The designers have promoted Kurrently as a tool to help retailers track the popularity of their brands (Baer, 2010). Similarly, tools such as Kurrently can be useful for 21st Century media professionals in Australia in seeking out the most relevant story angles.
