A bit about web curation site “Scoop It.”
This site feels a lot like a more interesting and visual “Delicious,” the social bookmarking site.
Scoop.it allows you to file and arrange content in a design conscious fashion - a magazine format, if you will. Which of course is shareable.
You can edit how and where on the page your curated items appear, change the headline, summary and the size of the pictures on the posts as well if you wanted - as though you’re a magazine editor.
The feature that is potentially of greater interest is the ability to add key words and allow it to scour social platforms for content related to your curation. (Yes similar to Google reader/alerts in a way)
In theory this should mean you wouldn’t miss a thing. However, in reality the terms don’t always bring up great quality content, particularly if you follow a huge subject like “Social Media” or “Journalism!” I often end up posting articles which have been recommended to me on Twitter, G+ or email on Scoop.it via a very handy bookmarklet. By downloading it from the site onto your browser with one clip and interesting article you’ve found will end up on your “magazine.”
Very user friendly interface too. I just hope they improve the search functionality because that really would make it special.
