Storytelling with Social Media

Storytelling distinguishes the art of human communication in all cultures around the world. This art has been passed down through generations as myths, fables, and legends. Many of these tales have similar plots, settings, and characters, even in different regions around the world. Storytelling introduces the emotion of all human beings through compelling tales of wonder, mystery, adventure, and horror. Storytelling also develops higher level thinking skills and establishes social skills. Storytelling builds self-esteem and motivation because this skill allows the listeners to be actively involved in the story. Storytelling develops communication abilities, expands the imagination, and builds self-esteem.

The art of storytelling helps develop the skills that are necessary for effective public speaking. Through repetition of storytelling, storytellers discover the importance of sensational interpretation and clear expression. Storytelling will also enable storytellers to improve their communication abilities around other people, which include co-workers, friends, and family. Storytellers can improve their self-esteem because they will be able to feel more comfortable after telling stories to several audiences.  In today’s social media market, defining your brand by sharing your story is integral to creating a successful social media following and brand loyalty. Storytelling enhances communication skills that are necessary to interact with public audiences. Storytelling also expands listening skills that are essential to storytelling. Stories are able to stretch the creative imagination and attention span of the audience.

So I have to say that I do storytelling everyday in some form or another whether it is posting something on Facebook, or responding to my classmates blog it’s very important for me to just keep going.

I just moved to Port Angeles about a year and a half ago form Spokane. I'm starting my journey in Photography in Multimedia and I haven't been in school for about 30 years. I never dreamed in a million years that I would be going back to school. I just love being in school.
