New Additions to the Social Explorer Storytelling Feature
FRIDAY, APR 09, 2021
Storytelling with Social Explorer just got a major upgrade. If you thought this feature was cool before, wait until you see what we just added!
The storytelling feature serves as a way to use Social Explorer maps to present ideas, insights, and trends. It enables you to tell a story enhanced with multimedia elements that help bring your data visualizations to life. Stories previously only allowed you to create presentations consisting of different forms of Social Explorer map visualizations, including single, side-by-side, or swipe maps. Now, we’ve added the option to add charts, surveys, and maps imported from our Vizualist platform.
Tell a Story
On the bottom right-hand side of your map, near the legend, click the “Tell a Story” button to begin telling your data stories.
Click the Tell a story button to begin
From there, you will have all the options to begin creating a compelling story with Social Explorer. You have the option of creating a cover, editing or duplicating a slide, and of course, adding a new slide. Click “+ Add new slide” and then “Widget by Vizualist” to begin adding charts, surveys, and maps from Vizualist to your presentation.
Click Widget by Vizualist to start adding charts, surveys and maps
To add your widget, simply go to the desired project in Vizualist, copy the embed URL code, and paste it to the designated slide. After clicking “done,” the newly embedded image should automatically appear on the slide.
