Content Director's Big Bang: Why Content Director via ScoopIt Explodes Content Curation via @Curagami

Content Director's Big Bang: Why Content Director via ScoopIt Explodes Content Curation via @Curagami | Collaborative Revolution |

Content Director's Big Bang

The content curation industry has been waiting. We've needed an institutional tool that would allow for key pieces of our collaboration to be shared and quantified. Content Director,'s new content curation tool, is just such a tool.

The real value comes in the front end. The ability to craft WordPress content without worry for content duplication thanks to a nifty trick - the feed isn't public it is ONLY feeding the blog - is a brilliant solution to what was a vexing problem. Now we can curate on the backend, have that content show up on the front end ONLY ONCE. TOO GOOD.

The back end of's "business" tool is what you would expect. It combines the spider tool we've known and used for years with calendars for scheduling and the same space to add comments. In this case comments added become the curation summary on a WordPress blog. TOO GOOD.

The genius of this ever so slight pivot for one of our favorite curatio tools means we can eliminate the firewall we had between our spidered content and our testing environment. Now we can do ONE thing instead of two and reap both benefits - learn what content is worthy for our blog posts and gain quantifiable feedback about everything from content subject to headline. TOO GOOD!

Martin (Marty) Smith's insight:

Great insight from trusted source Robin Good (@RobinGood). We are all in the "online confernece" business now (no matter what our business vertical), so important reviews of helpful tools here. 

Robin Good's curator insight, April 22, 2013 10:29 AM

If you need to review and compare alternative web conferencing and online collaboration tools you should give a look to Online Meeting Tools Review, a web service providing basic information for 35 different tools.

I have already recommended this service in May 2012, but the service has been significantly improved and updated.

For each service included you get a review, a direct link to its home page and free trial offering, and an overall rating score.

With the Basic Comparison Tool you can review up to four different conferencing services side-by-side for no additional fee:

With the Pro version of the same Comparison Tool you can get up to 12 different tools compared into a report that is sent straight to your email without any cost. The only requirement is that you accept the option of being later contacted by one of the companies you have requested to be compared.

Free to use.
