New social gallery yet another way to tell the story

Advertisement

We launched a new form of galleries on NewsOK.com this month.

It’s like our photo galleries, but it has much more than static images. It’s a social gallery, allowing us to gather posts from around the web about a topic and embed them into a gallery that makes it easy to slide through.

The social gallery we’ve been featuring on the site this week highlights the Oklahoma Standard.

We've curated the #OKStandard hashtag throughout the past couple of weeks from corporations, individuals and groups who have made the commitment to participate this month in the Oklahoma Standard - one act of service, honor and kindness.

News web editor Tiffany Gibson has been adding to the gallery as she goes through posts from our community on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and YouTube.

We've created other social galleries in the past couple of weeks, as well.

We delivered posts about the fabricated social-media holiday when people on the Internet all over the world paid homage to their siblings, or at least their favorite siblings.

We also shared a bunch a posts from people drawing attention to the issue of equal pay for women with the #EqualPayDay hashtag.

And on Thursday, we put together a series about National High Five Day (#NationalHighFiveDay). It was a pretty good gallery, but I think web editors concocted it to force me to awkwardly offer high-fives in the office.

It’s clear we like the new social galleries and the potential they have to help us tell stories and share information, whether it’s fun, serious or awkward.
