How The Washington Post is making long stories easier for users to finish

The Washington Post released a set of tools last week designed to make its longer stories easier for readers to complete, including a bookmark tool that lets readers save their spot in a story. The reader enters their email address, and the Post will send them an email with a unique URL that will allow them to return to their spot the story on any device. Other features released last week include a pop-up that appears when a user has been inactive on the page for more than five minutes asking if the user wants to save their spot and subtitles for embedded audio clips.
