Abstract

Interactive documentary is an interactive non-fiction genre, within digital storytelling, that is developed in the diversification period in the digital context and, particularly, on the Internet. The digital convergence of media favors the creation of complex products, characterized by navigation and interaction, as well as new audiences’ participation. Social networks open ways for promotion, contribution and personalization of interactive documentary. In this research, we have made a selection of significant projects from the period 2010-2015 and coming from all over the world, in which the development of the genre and the use of social networks have been analyzed.
