Ara Stories: a tool to create visual summaries for breaking news

Organisation: Diari ARA (Spain)

Publication Date: 01/19/2018

Description

The liveblog format seems perfect for breaking news, but it’s not really perfect for breaking news on mobile. It has too much detail and too much text, and our data shows it’s not the best fit for our mobile audience, specially our direct mobile audience. Our solution is to publish visual summaries, similar to the Snapchat Stories format, to our mobile site, as a complement to the liveblog. The prototype we have created is a tool for the newsroom to create these visual summaries easily, selecting and adapting the essential information and media published to the liveblog.
