Social media demands that journalists use the most engaging, eye-catching material to capture the attention of their audiences, whether that's in the form of images, video or text.
Quotables are a great way for journalists to share original reporting in a way that grabs the audience's attention with an image. The tool, developed in 2014 by the NPR Visuals Team, is part of Lunchbox, a suite of open-source tools to create images for social media sharing.
Check out these guidelines for using Quotables, which include which articles to create Quotables with, how long to make them, and how much context to publish with them for maximum impact.
