Re: Why should I use the listicle tool instead of using slideshows?

It depends on the user experience you're aiming for. 

 

A listicle is an article format that presents your content (typically media + copy) as a list and in one pageview.   If you have content  that is crucial to the article's narrative, go the listicle route.

Slideshows are typically embedded within an article and require the user to click to view a series of images, which may or may not be paired with captions.  Slideshows can be a great way to generate pageviews once a user engages.

But a great rule of thumb is to mix it up and try different formats to keep audiences engaged!
