Tell great stories with social content

From politics and weather to sports and entertainment, social media is now the pulse of the planet. SAM makes it easy to turn raw social content into beautiful and customizable stories. Curate, organize, and style social media content, from any social network, to power any type of story.

The story is already being told, we help you find, curate, and publish it.

Telling a story from the perspective of eye-witnesses or those closest to the facts has never been more important. And without user generated content it’s increasingly difficult to tell the story at all.

SAM is the only end-to-end platform that allows newsrooms to capture real-time events and use them to power rich storytelling.

A style for every story.

SAM embed templates transform the way social content looks, feels, and behaves on your site.

"SAM allows us to take the entire discussion outside Facebook and repackage it inside a fresh FT.com story. The tool allowed us to create a timeline-like summary and curate it manually, by having full control over which pieces of content would appear in it, and more importantly, in what order."
