  • An article is the atomic piece of content that gets published by a source. It has a headline, a publish date, an excerpt and an associated source that published it.

    A story is a collection of related articles. The Daylife platform clusters articles about the same news event (in a 24 hour window) into a story to help the user easily navigate the news by looking at a smaller set of data i.e. the stories. On further interest about a particular story, a user can then dive into the articles that are contained in the story.

    Every story has a representative article. The Daylife platform chooses this article in a cluster based on a range of factors to ensure that it is the best representative article for that news event.

    You can get stories about a topic using the API topic_getRelatedStories. You can also get a stream of articles about a topic using the API topic_getRelatedArticles, however, you would then see more articles about the same news event in this case.
