A NewsOK user contacted us on Twitter yesterday:
Coincidentally, we had just been speaking about a Story Wall project for later this summer. So we told him:
@DarrenWasHere No, not dead. We’re still in the beginning stages. Look for more throughout the year. Glad you enjoy them.
Frankly, the Story Wall was an experimental way of telling a story. We completed a handful – and we actually received a good amount of positive feedback from our users about those projects.
We are anticipating some upgrades to the way we produce the Story Walls and the way we display them. Currently, we are planning to use the storytelling technique during our State Fair coverage in September.
That made our customer happy:
@NewsOK good to hear, StoryWall is one of those “I wish I’d developed that” kind of ideas!
Web editor Nick Tankersley is most responsible for the Story Wall concept. He deserves that credit. And he will work with the NewsOK development team to upgrade the product.
If that goes well, I expect big things for the future of our Story Walls.
