Excerpted from official website and its "About" page. Here are the key features:
- Content Distribution: Repost lets bloggers, publishers, and brands distribute their content to new audiences. - Content Discovery: Find news, features, videos, and more to repost on your site. And it's free.
Repost allows you to republish complete articles (including images, links, & multimedia) anywhere quickly, easily, and legally – just like video. With Repost, you can distribute your content to other publishers, bloggers, and websites. You can also discover a broad range of content to repost on your own site. Whether you’re distributing, discovering, or both, why do you need Repost? That’s easy: More readers, more reach, more revenue.
Repost: it’s syndication reimagined; it’s the wire service reinvented; it’s changing the way content goes viral."
Excerpted from review article on Mashable: "Repost.Us, a free service that launched earlier this week, provides publishers with a platform to share and embed full articles in the same way that YouTube lets users embed video clips. Websites can add a Repost button to their articles, which others can click on to re-publish all of the content in the article — along with videos, the original publisher's advertising and branding, and any updates to the article that occur afterwards. Repost also provides a directory of content that publishers can search through and publish on their own website.
In short, the goal for Repost, is to make it easy for big and small publishers to profit from sharing complete articles as it is for content producers to share and profit from videos using the embed code from websites like YouTube..."

Kim Flintoff's insight:
As this seems to be still in closed beta for another month - but seems to offer the potential to customise content presentation. Maybe useful in eductaion for creating reading sets, resource collections, etc.
There's a gap as big as the grand canyon between regurgitated aggregation and quality curation. Unfortunately, the content marketing bandwagon is not as discriminating.
Kim Flintoff's insight:
In an ideal world where we can attend to simply one dimension of professional reading this article might ring true,. For many of us who are not part of the "content marketing bandwagon" the modern suite of curation toiols allow us to use certain features for our own purposes - in many cases we are our own audience. Tools like Scoop.it allow us to organise and aggregate topics of interest without worrying too much about intended audiences. Or the audience is very close to home... just because we include something in a publicly accessible site doesn't mean we are intending to serve the needsof the global internet community.. in many cases the convenience of the tools serves a personal purpose. In many cases, reading intent into someone else's "curated collection" is an act of subjective interpretation..
