Brand Stories

Verizon Media is bringing social media’s most popular format to the open web

Brand Stories: Intro

With over 1 Billion Daily Users, across platforms like Snapchat, Facebook and Instagram, Stories are by far the fastest-growing areas of online communication today.
Verizon Media Brand Stories are self-contained brand experiences that immerse audiences into a dynamic environment.

They can be used as destination pages, embedded in content or served programmatically (through Verizon Media Native & Verizon Media DSP platforms) into expandable display units.

The format allows brands to combine visual elements with video, bite-size text, polls, quizzes, shoppable elements and more.
