“A global public library of human experiences”
That description of cowbird is what initially made me interested in the site. I really like using Storify, and this seems like a different, yet similar form of the same type of tool. From what I can tell, Storify looks to be more news oriented and Cowbird is really more about a STORY (ironic). It’s a writing tool for storytellers – which I love. Being able to combine social media aspects to create a story is something that our current generation really flocks to.
I really like the “places” feature, because it gives you another option for how to search stories – area based. The daily stories page is nice as well for users that visit cowbird often and need inspiration. I would most definitely use this tool for fun and for personal uses.
