"One of Scoop.it’s intriguing aspects is being organized around topics as opposed to the people doing the curation. This differentiates the site from Facebook and Twitter, and it also seems to be resulting in a more professional look and feel – more of a LinkedIn in that sense, than a personal network" writes David Weir on 7x7 reviewing Scoop.it and developing on how it differentiates from other publishing platforms.
7x7 also called us "One of our favorite online publishing platforms" on Twitter and we feel grateful and happy: thanks!

"I have been an Evernote devotee now for sometime. This started way back in 2008 and accelerated about a month ago when I changed my entire productivity system to one managed by Evernote courtesy of Daniel E. Gold's eBook http://evernote.degconsulting.net/ . This is why I have transitioned all of my projects from being managed on various applications like Word and Excel to Evernote."

"Our vision at Scoop.it has always been that the answer to that resided in the Interest Graph. The social graph is not enough to filter our interests: just because we’re connected or friends doesn’t mean you share my interests for online gaming, freeride skiing or astronomy. And these interests – we’ve learned – are very long tail: just on Scoop.it, hundreds of thousands of topics have been created by our users since we launched. There is no way to curate the curators in an absolute sense.
Instantly creating a dynamic feed of all of the most recent posts on the topics you follow as well as topics within many different categories of interest, the new Visual Dashboard brings discovery and inspiration to a whole new level.
Discovery and Curation are two sides of the same (content) coin.
In the new dashboard, you’ll be able to rescoop on the fly any content worth sharing to your audience while easily adding your own context from the now-classic Scoop.it publishing pop-up..."

Robin Good: Feedmagnet, a service that allows you to automaticallly gather, filter and then publish curated content channels on specific topics, has published a mini-PDF guide guiding you to ten possible simple uses of curation to enhance your branding, PR and online marketing efforts.
Among the suggested "curated" content approaches:
- Social Testimonials
- Team - employee showcase
- Clients + products affinity
P.S.: The tips and techniques are merely described in a few lines, while a bit more description and links to real-world examples would have helped a lot. For more examples see: http://www.feedmagnet.com/gallery/

Robin Good: Collective.ly is a new web-based curation platform which allows anyone to pull together images, text, web clippings and video into one curated set, that can be published and shared on social media.
Content can be gathered via a browser clipping extension, as well as from your cloud-based storage via a dedicated importing tool or by simply uploading your favorite files from your computer.
Collections are as easy to create as a file folder, and any collection can be made part of another one, allowing for more complex and hierarchical topical structures.
Multiple "themes" / layouts are available for publishing any collection, which can be set to "public" or "private" depending on need.
Guillaume, our CEO & Co-Founder, was invited to the Friday Hangout this morning with Janet Fouts and Steve Farnsworth. Both are strong Social Media experts and have seen many trends: Steve is a Forbes Top 50 Social Media Influencer and Janet started online communities back in the 90's before starting her own consulting practice.
They talked about the role Content Curation has for Social Media Marketing and how it will help social media evolve from the social graph to the interest graph, something key for professionals who tend to have niche long-tail interests.

Robin Good: Paper.li one of the early players in the news aggregation, discovery and auto-curation space has been significantly improving its service which now offers also a $9/month Pro version.
Paper.li allows you to set a number of search queries on Twitter, Facebook, Google+, YouTube and to import specific RSS feeds to "aggregate" the most relevant on a certain topic or theme.
You as a curator can "preview" your yet-to-be-published news magazine and can manually pick and decide which "stories" to publish and which ones to drop by simply hovering your mouse on anyone of them.
"Editions" can be auto-scheduled and Paper.li can automatically announce on Twitter and via email to your subscribers when a new one is out.
PRO users get to have the last word before any edition gets published, by way of a "preview before promotion" feature that lets you control when notifications go out and gives you time to make changes, can add promotional banners, standard ads or other marketing materials in a set of predefined hot spots on their news page, and can "brand" their magazine with their own banner, background image and personalized colors.
