Digital Storytelling: An Experience from the Arab World Perspective How AJ+ Creates a New Form of Storytelling
This analytical study aims to explore how AJ+ employs digital storytelling to report on different events and issues in addition to finding out new and old elements of news reporting used in this type of narrative. It analyzes all forms of digital stories (DSs) that were published during Jun 2022. The findings show that AJ+ published several stories on a daily basis. The average number of stories published every day recorded at 6.8, a relatively large number. Digital stories tackle more than 15 topics and issues. However, the Palestinian-Israeli conflict issue has gained special attention from these stories. They employ several news headlines and leads, a majority of them borrowed from the traditional media narrative. Videos represent the most multimedia employed by DSs and users significantly interact with them. It is worth mentioning that writing is still the most important element of storytelling.
