FAQs on Social Media Storytelling

Q: What is social media storytelling?

A: Right, so social media storytelling is a bit like sitting down with mates and sharing a cracking yarn, except you’re doing it online. It’s all about spinning a tale about your brand or your adventures in a way that gets folks listening, liking, and sharing. You’re not just chucking facts at them; you’re weaving a story that’ll tug at their heartstrings or get them nodding along.

Q: What social media is best for storytelling

A: Well, it’s a bit like picking your favourite biscuit – depends on what you fancy, doesn’t it? If you’re all about lovely snaps, Instagram and Pinterest are your jam. If you’re keen on a natter, Twitter’s your best bet. For a good sit-down story, Facebook and LinkedIn are spot on. And for a story that moves (quite literally), TikTok and YouTube are where it’s at. Just find out where your crowd hangs out and start your storytelling there.

Q: How do you use social media to tell your story?

A: First off, figure out what yarn you’re dying to spin. Grab some smashing pics, a bit of video, and whip up some text that gets people hooked. Keep it real, keep it you, and make sure to have a chinwag with your followers – get them gabbing about your tale. And remember, each social media pub has its own way of telling stories, so make sure your tale fits right in.

Q: What are the 4 types of storytelling

A: Picture this: You’ve got your straight line story, that’s your linear – beginning, middle, and end, all in order. Then there’s the jigsaw puzzle kind, your non-linear – bits of the story all over the place, and it’s up to you to put it together. Interactive is like a choose-your-own-adventure book, where your audience gets a say. And transmedia? That’s when your story hops across different types of media, creating a proper big picture. Each one’s a different way to tell your tale, so just pick the one that suits your story best.
