Why I Don't Like Scoopit Links on Twitter

Why I Don't Like Scoopit Links on Twitter | Content Curation Tools For Brands | Scoop.it

Bryan Vartabedian, MD : ..   more Scoopit links in my Twitter stream and I’m not crazy about it.  Sure it’s quick and easy to share with Scoopit.  But it not quick and easy to consume. For me it's all about the econ...

Therese Torris's insight:

TT: agree that a twitter link from scoop.it creates an annoying additional step for viewers interested in the content. But driving traffic to the aggregating platform (be it scoop.it, pulse or else) and to the curator is OK as long as it is clear where the link goes. The link should not be hidden behind a bitly  and include @scoopit.
What annoys me however is that scoop.it links do NOT credit the original souce. For that reason I almost always manually add its twitter handle (lots of work). ATTRIBUTION to the original source is key to curation, in my opinion.

For example I'm going to tweet this and add the handle of the author : Bryan Vartabedian @Doctor_V

Right on Marty! I'm re-scooping this as a way to help that learning along about how to really use Scoop.it well and leverage it.
Karen Dietz's curator insight, August 22, 2:25 PM

FYI Folks -- I trust that the reviews I write about the articles I curate help people along in their business storytelling journey. I know that there are many curators out there who do not add reviews/comments to the articles they highlight. 


As a result, Scoop.it and other curation sites are getting a backlash because audience members are tired of getting a link to an article that brings them to Scoop.it, and then requires another click to get to the article. Now I know that is annoying. And there is nothing of value offered between clicks.


Marty's response to the original blog post is right on. Read it along with all the other comments. Truly illuminating.


Other than a rant for me, what's the value of this post to you and business storytelling?


Namely this -- no matter what medium you use -- blogging, curating, digital storytelling -- make sure you are actually adding value for your audience. Expand their knowledge, give them tools, show them how, and offer your excellent insights. The stories you share have to connect to your audience in these ways. Anything else is a waste.


All of these posts and reviews add up to telling your story in a big picture way. So thanks Marty for addressing this issue, and reminding us about principles for quality curation. I've learned a lot from both you and Robin!

How much we love this magical tool Guilluame and Marc created was clear. Poor Guilluame steps off a plane and someone hands him my bomb. Kudos to him and his team for their immediate response to bring back our beloved features (great job).

Martin, I suggest you follow Robin:Good's practice to put your name at the beginning of your comments. Reason is: when re-re-re-scooped it becomes hard to tell who's talking among the author and the many curators. what' s your take?

Scoop.it's redesign: Congrats !  [DIRECT POST] | Content Curation Tools For Brands | Scoop.it
Therese Torris: This is not a scoop of curated content, but a direct post here to congratulate the Scoop.it team on their spirit of continuous improvement.

I love in particular the fact that the latest version of Scoop.it allows a greater differentiation between quotes from the content that is being curated and the curators' insight or comments about it !

In the previous version (and for that matter on most other curation platform) it was sometimes very unclear who was the author of the text of the scoop. Was it a quote from the piece of the original author of the original source, or a summary by the first curator, or a comment by another curator if the scoop was rescooped...??

For that reason, many curators including myself had started to put their name in front of their summaries or comments. Now we have the means to do that in a cleaner fashion.
