WEB STORIES

How To Create

Web Stories are a new form of content that is designed to serve short and informative bursts  of content.

A visual editor is the software, plugin or online services that helps a publisher create the  web stories. The editor contains  a graphic user interface that allows the publisher to design each panel of the web story.

A web story consists of panels that are like pages that a user swipes one to the next. Like any type of "story", the best web stories are crafted with a beginning, middle, and end (often a resolution) and maybe even an epilogue to give a summary to wrap up the narrative.

The targeted user is someone who might be  on public transportation or has an idle moment and wants to consume content but not commit  to a long article.

The next step involves gathering images and videos that will be used within the web story. Important to note that the web stories format is vertical, like the screen on a mobile phone.  This vertical format extends to the videos which themselves must be vertically formatted.

Google recommends using  pre-made templates that are provided by the visual editors. Once a publisher’s gained experience they can branch out and create their own unique templates to incorporate any kind of website branding or unique visual identity.
