"Services like Scoop.it depend on a community of millions of hardworking experts who wonder what to do with the wealth of knowledge and wisdom they have accumulated in life and are happy to share it."
Written by blogger Shred Pillai on the Huffington Post, this vibrant praise of Social Curation in general and Scoop.it in particular, points out the changes we're seeing in the way we look for information. From basic search, we now look more and more for meaning and context from human experts.
Beyond information, we want knowledge.
And this is what Curation is all about.
As he concludes: "At the end of the day, Scoop.it, which is free, is the right answer for information seekers and providers as well as the experts who like to show off their expertise."
***** Scooped this to Curation Revolution before realizing my fellow Agile Marketing Revolutionaries would approve immediate induction of all Scoop.it team to the Agile Marketing revolution. One critical value to Agile Marketing is for a little something fast instead of a lot of something slow. Scoop.it is a do a little something fast tool.
Welcome to the revolution!
