As Scoop.it turns two today, we are excited to share a great milestone: we’re only a few weeks away from reaching 100 million cumulated unique visitors on the platform! That’s right: 100 million different people have been to Scoop.it to discover the awesome content of our amazing community of curators. How much content you ask? Well, a few months ago we counted 50 million curated pieces.
When we started working on Scoop.it, the horizon wasn’t that far. Out of a failed project, we needed to be quick to apply the lessons that we had learned.
We built Scoop.it to make it easy and rewarding to share ideas that matter.
Ideas matter: they make all of us, individuals, businesses and societies, progress. Sharing ideas is equally important as creating them: it honors the creators; it enriches the recipients; and it also benefits the “passers”, who enhance their reputation through propagation of wisdom.
Scoop.it, a startup that helps users highlight interesting content (and, implicitly, their own knowledge in the field), is bringing its social curation tools to the iPad today with the launch of a new app.
The company asks users to build topic pages where they aggregate relevant content (we’ve described these pages as “your own digital magazine“). Those pages are viewable on Scoop.it, shareable on social networks, and SEO-optimized. Plus, other users can follow those pages.
Scoop.it is a popular content curation website that lets people build their own online publication using articles found across multiple sources on the Internet. In a few clicks, individuals and companies are able to collect and comment on numerous articles on the topics they are interested in...Today, the company launched its brand new iPad application that offers a few new features and a user experience optimized for the touch interface.
Today, San Francisco startup Scoop.it launched an iPad app to help you find content to share with your community.
Brands and individuals can create Scoop.it pages, your own personal publications made up of interesting articles, videos, and photos you find around the web. These pages are useful for content marketing or just showcasing your expertise on a topic.
Scoop.it for iPad brings social curation and publishing opportunities galore -- Sept. 5, 2013 | TabTimes
Back in the mid-1980s, Apple's Macintosh helped launch a new industry, desktop publishing. Can the iPad similarly be the device of choice for a new generation of content creators?
Scoop.it sure hopes so. The company today released the first iPad app version of its social curation platform with an eye toward turning content consumers into content creators.
Imagine that it’s early 1964, and you’re in a band of four guys who have a knack for very catchy tunes—and you’ve even got a distinct look, performing in suits while sporting moptops. You know it’s just a matter of time before Destiny calls you onto the big stage. But then you turn on the Ed Sullivan show one night, and you realize that someone’s beaten you to your dream.
What’s next, then?
At long last, sanity and clarity may be coming to the Internet. “We’ve had the ‘fun web’ and the ‘beautiful web,’ San Francisco-based tech entrepreneur Guillaume Decugis tells me. “Now we’re moving from that to thinking about a new era of the ‘smart web.’”
Decugis, a native of France, is co-founder and CEO of Scoop.it, a site that allows users to quickly find and contribute the most helpful information to a global dialogue.
￼Scoop.it has scooped up $2.6 million to mold vast amounts of Internet content into more manageable form.
The company combines semantic analysis with human curation to help brands publish relevant content. Its technology crawls 10 million pages across the Web, analyzes it, and makes personalized content suggestions for users based on their areas of interest. Users pick and choose the items they find interesting or relevant and publish them to their personal or organizational site.
Sixteen-employee startup Scoop.it Inc. raised $2.6 million in venture funding.
The San Francisco company has an office in Toulouse, France. It makes software to help people search the Internet for content they are interested in and share it with others. The idea is not only to help users beef up their social web presence, but also to make the Internet "a smarter, more organized place for everyone."
Scoop.it has integrated with MailChimp to give content curators a way to build an audience for their digital magazines through email newsletters.
“Curators add context to content,” explained Scoop.it marketing director Arabella Santiago in a recent phone interview. Founded in 2010, Scoop.it’s platform helps people create topic pages out of subjects like technology, science, business, and the arts based on content aggregated from the web.
Today, Scoop.it partnered with MailChimp to help brands create easy email newsletter campaigns. The San Francisco startup originally let brands find related articles and turn them into curated online magazines. Now, Scoop.it users can grow their audience not just online but over email. And MailChimp users can stop stressing over what to put in their newsletters. This is available for free on on MailChimp’s free plan.
Scoop.It, the site that allows users to make and share their own topical "magazines", is partnering with email marketing site MailChimp to make it easier to deliver newsletters with curated content from their Scoop.It pages.
"Most businesses and professionals struggle to simply create one relevant newsletter per month,” said Guillaume Decugis, CEO and co-founder of Scoop.it in a press release.
When Guillaume Decugis founded Scoop.it in 2010, he wanted to create a social media platform that allows businesses to stand out in an increasingly crowded online world.
Publicly launched with $10 million in venture funding in November 2011, Scoop.it is a professional, business-oriented version of Pinterest. Users make digital magazines where they “curate” information and links about specific topics, such as urban decay photography or the use of iPads in education. It’s a chance for individuals and businesses to show off their knowledge and relevance in their fields.

Scoop.it launched last November to give anyone and everyone the ability to create their own digital magazines — to aggregate and distribute content from across ye olde Internets according to their particular interests — not unlike Pressly or OnSwipe. In December, the startup released its first mobile app and has since been adding integrations with services like Hootsuite, SlideShare and Buffer to expand its reach into social media marketing.
Scoop.it Building a Community of Curators Sharing “Ideas that Matter” -- Oct. 04, 2012 | By David Weir
When we first looked at Scoop.it, soon after it launched in late 2011, we described it as “a one-click publishing platform that allows curators to publish beautiful online magazines.”
Today, while that description still holds true, Scoop.it appears to be evolving into a community of content curators who follow – not each other – but each other’s topics.
Author’s note: This is the first in a series of blog posts showcasing developers using our APIs and highlighting best practices.
Scoop.it is a social media publishing tool that helps you reach interest-based audiences by enabling you to easily curate content on a given topic. With Scoop.it, you can find relevant content faster, edit it easily and publish it in 1-click to engage your followers and acquire new ones via social discovery. Unlike similar tools, Scoop.it is uniquely organized around topics as opposed to the curators themselves.
