There are many places on the internet to create, share and consume content in a massive way. 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.
