I used Storify for the first time yesterday, compiling public tweets and photos that people had posted (mostly, those with the hashtag #oaklandschools) on Twitter and Facebook, as well as our first-day coverage. Thanks to all who responded to our call for stories!

You can find the final product here.

Now that I’m hooked on Storify and see how easy it is to use, I’m thinking of the next project — an educational issue or event that people will naturally be discussing on social media. It could be local, regional or even national.

Have an idea? Post it here, email it to me at kmurphy@bayareanewsgroup.com, or send it to me on Twitter, at @katymurphy.
