GetVega is a Pinterest-Like Visual Clipping Tool - Check This Out! | Curation, Social Business and Beyond | Scoop.it

Robin Good: GetVega is a Pinterest-like visual clipping tool, which allows you to create lists and visual collections of commercial products while easily capturing selective info relative to each one (cost, size, weight, price, etc.). 

 

As I have been writing, one of the key next evolutionary areas for content curation tools, is the delivery format. It is on this front that there are lots of marvellous opportunities yet to be tapped. And GetVega is one of the first curation tools to do a great job on this front.  

In fact, one key feature inside GetVega is the ability to display curated collections in one of three different visual formats, depending on the type of list and use you want to make of it. One such display format is extremely effective and valuable as it makes it easy to "compare" products and info within one collection.

GetVega provides a Google Chrome extension that allows you to easily clip one or more images from any product page, as well as any specific product info text or video.

Check out for example this curated collection of iPad alternatives: http://www.getvega.com/list/4f030465e91683175200a750-do-i-really-need-an-ipad You can see at a glance the different tools and their key specs. 

 

Collections can be set to be either "public" or "private" and can be easily shared on 

 

Similar "product curation tools" include:
Polyvore, Wanelo, Bagcheck, Curisma, OpenSky, Lyst  

 

Recommended. 8/10

Media Curation Platform "Storify" Tapped by the Weather Channel | Curation, Social Business and Beyond | Scoop.it

Andy Plesser from from Beet.TV talks with Cameron Clayton, EVP for Digital in this interview about how "Storify, the social media curation tool, was used by the Weather Channel during Hurricane Irene.


Amazing how Storify and the community came together with the Weather Channel....


They were able to keep people informed as the events occured with live crowdsourced tweets from the community in Vermont together with Storify until they got reporters on the ground.

Talk Show Launches On Tumblr Shot Entirely On iPhones…By The Guests

Talk Show Launches On Tumblr Shot Entirely On iPhones…By The Guests | Curation, Social Business and Beyond | Scoop.it

This piece was written by Megan O'neill in Socialtimes today. It should be very interesting to watch it's progress, if it's successful, lots of new and creative shows could emerge on Tumblr as a result.


Intro:


"What happens when two guys that are constantly wearing plaid shirts get together for a few beers? Well, they come up with the idea to do a talk show all about plaid that’s shot entirely on iPhones, of course".


The show is called Plaid Forever and it launched today on Tumblr.


Plaid Forever is the brainchild of Michael Krivicka of Thinkmodoand his friend Andrew—two plaid loving guys that live in New York. Michael told me via email, “It all started with Andrew and I.


We are great friends and are constantly wearing plaid shirts. One day we thought: let’s do a plaid themed website! The idea was very broad at first and then we narrowed it down to a talk-show type format that will live on the web.”They launched the show today.
