From The Newsroom
HENRY COOKE AND ROSANNA PRICE
If you're reading this, there's a pretty good chance you like stories. We do too.
Stories are our bread and butter - telling them, hearing them, and explaining them. We do it in newspapers up and down the country every day, we do it on Stuff.co.nz wherever the internet can reach, and now we're going to do it in your Snapchat* 'Stories' section as well.
You know, if you want.
What will you see if you add us on Snapchat? A whole range of things: videos and photos of breaking news events, behind-the-scenes moments from the newsroom and news events, even the odd informative infographic. We have journalists up and down the country ready to pop into your Snapchat, right after that 120-second-long odyssey of your friend's baking.
We know that Snapchat is supposed to be a playful and fun app - if you wanted to read The Economist, you'd be reading The Economist. We're not going to stick to soft news or gossip, but we do promise to keep it interesting.
If you use the Google Chrome web browser, then we have a little treat for you.
The Stuff New(s) Tab is an extension for your browser on desktop. Once it's installed, every time you open a new tab on your browser you will see a selection of the most recent Stuff stories.

PATRICK CREWDSON, EDITOR
Observant readers will notice Stuff's homepage is sporting a new look.
We're getting in shape for summer with a minor makeover. We haven't gone paleo or clocked punishing hours with a personal trainer - this makeover's more like a new haircut and some stylish sunglasses.
* The stuff.co.nz masthead moves to the top-left of the page.
* Stuff Nation - home to the best content provided by Stuff readers - joins National, Sport, Life & Style and our other top-level sections on a cleaner, simpler navigation bar.
