There are many places to share content on the internet. Some of these places have become reference of a certain type of content: photography in Instagram or Pinterest, professional contacts in Linkedin, microblogging in Twitter, Facebook friends, etc.
But a place of reference for the stories is missing. If someone wants to read other people's stories or write his own, he does not know where to turn. Therefore Sttorybox pretends to be a place of reference to share stories on the internet adopting a narrative model new and completely adapted to the online medium.
As there is still no reference place to share stories (there are sites on the internet where you can write, but as a rule they are scattered, writing is complicated and imitates paper format, design is not taken care of, etc.) and after the validation of the writing system of Sttorybox, we conclude that we have the potential to occupy an important place and potentially reference in terms of online writing.
MILLIONS OF WRITERS ONLINE
Of the 500 million Spanish speakers, more and more have access to the internet. In Sttorybox, readers and writers have their place. The creation and consumption of stories is a constant since the origins of man who, with each technological revolution - an intervention of paper, print, press, mass production - has succeeded in reaching more and more people.
Sttorybox eliminates all types of barriers for both writing and reading, allowing the entry of a significant number of users.
Writing has generally been a means of communication without direct feedback. On the other hand, the current online writing places, although little adapted to the medium and rudimentary at a technical and style level, have great capacity to create community. Sttorybox conceives writing as a shared process in which readers and writers are in constant contact, and I live; thus generating a strong community.
