What the Heck is Scoop.it?

What the Heck is Scoop.it? | Educational technology , Erate, Broadband and Connectivity | Scoop.it

It’s a user-friendly content curation tool with a social component, creating a one-stop environment for learning, sharing and connecting. (...)
There are many things about Scoop.it that I love. Its Pinterest-like boards provide the headline, image and the first few lines of copy, allowing for a quick scan of content. Scoop.it’s suggested content is always spot on (...) it’s easy (and the integration with other social networks is great)."

Thanks much Stacy Firth for this description of Scoop.it (and thanks for the positive comments!). Very accurate.


And yes Marketers are the number one users of Scoop.it!


As a complement, integration with Wordpress, branding (up to white lable) and analytics are probably the most popular benefits of the premium plans.


Indeed there is a social component to Scoop.it: the community of curators is leveraged to discover content and engage with like-minded people. It's secondary to the prime mission (publishing-by-curation platform), but we'll take into account the remarks about upgrading this social dimension. Noted!


PS: I like the title and the concept of this series :)

"Scoop.it is a great platform for curating web based content and collecting together your own portfolio or reading lists to share with the world. One of my major problems though with Scoop.it, used to be finding the articles and links I had saved and searching for useful articles on other Scoop.it.
