We can’t stop the creation of digital content. The Internet is full of content – and garbage. People do not read; they scan pictures. People are busy, pretending to consume more and more information. Along these lines, this post is short and includes a picture.

By creating good stories we can make our voice stronger and publish more content. Good storytelling has always been a valuable skill. Storytelling applies to everyone who interacts with other people: in business, research, education and in family life.
Digital storytelling brings together digital content, including images, sound and video, to create a short movie, including a strong emotional component.
Today, everyone is a storyteller. Everyone can create content using a smartphone or tablet. The vast number of non-professionals armed with their mobile devices, sharing pictures with friends; these people are not trying to make money.
In “the content noise” era, there is a significant growth in demand for high quality content. For professionals it is important to provide the right content, to the right people in the right moment. And it is important to support users who are at the same time content creators and content consumers. We can’t stop the creation of digital content, but we can manage it. Undoubtedly content management is becoming a lucrative business opportunity.
