New England skiers lament lack of snow on social media

In class we’ve been experimenting with Storify, a tool that lets you compile various social media elements all in one place. We had to make our own documenting some trend story.

I chose to make a Storify about how the unseasonably mild winter and lack of snow has affected ski resorts and skiers alike in New England. I found a lot of reactionary/opinion stuff in Tweets and a lot of the actual hard data from links to news sites and the National Weather Service site for the Taunton branch. I did manage to find some videos as well to incorporate, but they weren’t on Youtube, so I couldn’t embed them in my Storify, which kind of detracts from the overall experience.

It was pretty fun to experiment with this tool. I foresee myself using Storify a lot in the future.
