This is an interesting article: Making up Stories: Perception, Language, and the Web by Elizabeth McGuane and Randall Snare. They write ...
Storytelling is a buzzword with lots of different interpretations. Either the internet is killing stories, or it’s the best thing to happen to them since the printing press. Stories have been around as long as we have, helping us understand our world and ourselves.

Nice article and a good read.
