Stories are the oldest forms and tools that communities, societies, and cultures use to create narratives using beliefs, values, traditions, and myths. As stories are socio-psychic representations based on shared symbols, narratives, and meanings, storytelling has also been at the heart of ‘cultural identity’ and ‘social life.’ ‘Transmedia storytelling’ is the emerging practice of creating, sharing, and participating in an interconnected ‘story experience’ via ‘storytelling collaborations’ using old and the new media platforms - for news, entertainment, advertising, and also for social change. Thus, transmedia storytelling in the age of nonstop global converged media is the remediation of the narrative worlds, emerging technologies, and global audiences.
