Time for a Facebook Storyboard – Discover Viral Content Marketing

Have you ever noticed how some social media stories, tug at the heart strings, generate an emotion and get us to respond. Latest news, missing children, cute Disney pets, an injustice to society, celebrity fashion, news, he said, she said!

We all Love a good story and if you want to master your Facebook Story-board telling technique then it’s time to rely on some good old fashioned story-telling.

Journalists have always been good and generating a story from thin air, whether it be celebrity news or the latest disaster, somehow they manage to pout a spin on it to create a time sensitive viral masterpiece.

Have you heard about the Teacher in Philadelphia PA, who for years has been a role model for teachers, parents and children alike, teaching in a Catholic school in Philly. Highly regarded and respected in the community the teacher and his same sex partner decided it was time to commit and planned a civil-ceremony over the state line in the Garden State of New jersey. A courtesy email was sent to the headmaster booking a day off for the ceremony, to everyone dismay the schools official response was to dismiss the teacher on ground of sexual preference.

Whilst I feel this story is a tough one and the hardship the couple must be feeling as this controversy picks up momentum has my deepest sympathy! I mention this because the media storm that is generating behind this outrage has stirred emotions, generated a response, support for the teacher is un-wavered and the school board is having to re-consider it’s position.

Egg on one’s face Springs to mind.
