The concept that the CIO and CTO are on the way out, replaced by chief digital or chief data officer is ridiculus. It illustrates the craziness of the importance being put on social media or that tech can be managed by anyone. These people have not managed a tech department or understand what business process management is all about.

RebelMouse was born to build a social media hub, but it does have strong aggregation, filtering and curation capabilities. SEO-wise it is not a great choice, but also Scoop.it has quite a few limits on this front. <br><br>Rebelmouse doesn't offer all of the extras Scoop.it has, from scheduling, to sharing to an extended number of social networks, to integration with newsletter and to the backend dashboard. <br><br>Scoop.it has also a better, cleaner and more legible format, that better lends itself to more in-depth reading than just browsing titles, images and tweets.
Stan Smith's comment, November 12, 2013 9:22 AM
While I still use RebelMouse I have disconnected all inbound links because it posts it wacky and I was always having to go back and edit stuff. Now that I post stuff manually with their applet it isn't so bad. I still prefer Scoop.it though.

Are people coming to your blog and leaving within a few seconds?

If so, you have a “relevance” problem.  You can publish well-written, literary masterpieces, but readers will still ignore them if they aren’t relevant to their immediate needs.

Solving the relevance problem comes down to good old-fashioned research with an online twist.
