What Kind Of Curation Site Should You Use?

What Kind Of Curation Site Should You Use? | Google Plus and Social SEO |

Deanna Dahlsad designed this simple decision-tree to help differentiate between different Content Curation platforms and which one you should use as a business user.


I found this interesting as it's one of the first ones I see that made this obvious and simple differentiation between the different platforms out there. I'm not sure I would describe as article-based (we obviously have large pictures, infographics, videos or SlideShare presentations that are not articles) but I can see where she's coming from and her intention: if the content you curate is not 100% image, "image-based eye-candy" is not enough.

Thank you for scooping my article and decision tree! Most content curation sites do offer images, as I noted; but there are distinct differences between image-based sites like Pinterest & sites like Scoop.It especially in terms of users.

The decision tree here represents our decisions on what curation technology to use as an educational organization. It's a great starting point for discussion.

Hi Deanna - Yes, I found it was a great one. By the way, I was thinking of using it in a future presentation. Would you be ok with that? I'd of course include the reference to your site that's on the original picture. Let me know. Thanks!
