New Social Content Discovery Platform: Ping.it

New Social Content Discovery Platform: Ping.it | My Social Media | Scoop.it

Giuseppe Mauriello: I received an invitation some hours ago to join into closed beta test of Ping.it (formerly StormDriver).

It is a social content discovery platform that allows people to ping where they are in the Web right now, locate others in real time, and join them on any page.

 

From About Page:

"Ping.it offers a new way to discover interesting content in a social setting. Instead of leaving updates on social networks, just like notes on a fridge, simply share the experience of discovering content in real time, together. Don’t wait for people to tell you what they’re doing. Instead, take a look at Ping.it and join them on the spot!

 

With Ping.it you can see what pages others are visiting right now. You can also get pinged about the good stuff they find or ping your own discoveries.

 

Ping.it is all about the real-time aspect of the Web. Being aware of where your friends are online is one thing. Another is that you can instantly know what’s hot. In Ping.it you can see how many other users are interacting with a page, and if things get interesting you can get notified and join in the fun!

 

Every ping can be send to a specific topic – and all the people who follow it. This way you will immediately know if a new interesting page was pinged to any topic you follow. You can create your own topics, invite contributors, and together create useful scrapbooks of content. All topics have their own unique URL’s, so that you can share your best collaborations with the outside world.

 

We use cloud-enhanced browsing in order to let you enjoy your favorite content from within Ping.it. Instead of searching for stuff outside and then reporting on your findings through social networks..."

The Future Of News: New Startups Like NewsCred, NewsLook And Upworthy Are Succeeding At Syndication

The Future Of News: New Startups Like NewsCred, NewsLook And Upworthy Are Succeeding At Syndication | My Social Media | Scoop.it

Excerpted from article by Ken Doctor and published on Nieman Journalism Lab:

"In the endless world of digital content, there must be a big business in gathering together some of the world’s best, creating a marketplace, and selling stream upon stream.

 

Producers of content want to see the content they produced used and reused, over and over again, helping offset the high cost of news creation.

So let’s look at the newsonomics of Syndication 3.0:

 

- NewsCred:

This is syndication meets marketing services: As news companies both produce content and try to act as regional ad agencies, the synergies between the two are becoming more evident.
Timing is everything: We’ve seen a maturation in curation technologies, as metatagging gets easier and cheaper, allowing niched feeds.

 

- NewsLook:

It positions itself as a technology and curation company, adding value to a mass of content.

Think niche. Think video. Both have audiences that may be paying ones; video ad rates are still holding up far better than text.

 

- Upworthy:

Founder Eli Pariser defines its would-be audience: “At best, things online are usually either awesome or meaningful, but everything on Upworthy.com has a little of both. Sensational and substantial. Entertaining and enlightening. Shocking and significant. That’s what you can expect here: No empty calories. No pageview-juking slideshows. No right-column sleaze. Just a steady stream of the most irresistibly shareable stuff you can click on without feeling bad about yourself afterwards.”

 

Other startups are mentioned in this article: 

- California Watch;

- The AllMedia Platform;

- Deseret News Service;

- Ok.com; 

 

Each startup has a detailed introduction about itself. Read full, long and interesting article here:

News Discovery Tools: Slices for Twitter Organizes and Auto-Curates Your News Stream Into Categories

News Discovery Tools: Slices for Twitter Organizes and Auto-Curates Your News Stream Into Categories | My Social Media | Scoop.it

Robin Good: Slices is a news discovery app that allows you to find the news that interest you by "slicing" the Twitter timeline into topic-specific categories, making it much easier to find what you are looking for.

 

From Pandodaily official review: "Slices offers 21 searchable categories – humor, technology, sports, and so on – that lead you to people and lists to follow. Included among those top-level categories is the “Live Events” option, which allows you to select an event – a football match, say, or a TV show – and follow Tweets from a curated list.

Also of note: "...it synchronizes between mobile devices and the Slices website (slices.me), which means it knows which Tweets you’ve already read, no matter where you access it from.

 

...The “Timeline Slicer” also outdoes Twitter’s Lists as a way to organize the people you follow into specific categories. They’re easier to set up and easier to access, ..."

Slices is available on iOS, Android and the Web.

Discover The World Through Your Friends' Travel Visual Stories With Tripl

Discover The World Through Your Friends' Travel Visual Stories With Tripl | My Social Media | Scoop.it

Giuseppe Mauriello: Social travel startup Tripl has built a personalized filtering service that turns your friends’ Facebook and Foursquare feeds and organizes their travels data into stories on a timeline.

 

From article on The Next Web:

"When you return from a trip, wouldn’t it be nice to compile a neat summary of what you did while you were away to share with others? Tripl is launching a new service today that does that in style.

 

Tripl began as a way for people to share their future travel plans with others.

 

Once you sign up through Facebook, optionally adding Twitter, Foursquare and Tripit, the service will automatically detect when you and your friends are traveling away from home and create personalized infographics of their journey. Your friends don’t even need to be Tripl users – as long as you’re connected with them on Facebook, the data will be automatically collected thanks to geotagged data and assembled automatically.

 

This is a product that could become seriously addictive. Scrolling through the timeline I saw trips I didn’t know my friends and contacts had made..."

YouTube Gets An Investigative News Channel | TechCrunch

YouTube Gets An Investigative News Channel | TechCrunch | My Social Media | Scoop.it

Excerpted from article:

"YouTube is helping to launch a new channel with the Center for Investigative Reporting (CIR). The new “I Files” channel will curate videos from sources such as The New York Times, Al Jazeera, BBC, in a attempt to bring some much needed attention to the fledgling investigative journalism space.

 

The I Files team cites recent evidence that user-generated content on YouTube is a growing source of serious news for the average citizen. “That’s our assignment at The I Files,” writes Stephen Talbot for the Bay Citizen, “to be timely and relevant, to provide an outlet for a citizen journalist who captures an incredible moment on camera, but above all to dig deeper and to present well-reported and engaging stories that offer real information and insights.”

Discover And Create Beautiful Magazine With New Content Curation App Zeen Launched In Beta

Discover And Create Beautiful Magazine With New Content Curation App Zeen Launched In Beta | My Social Media | Scoop.it

Excerpted from the article:

"YouTube founders launched a teaser for a new project called Zeen. 

It’s similarly based around the idea of content curation, but whereas Delicious is about tags and bookmarks, Zeen is a more developed version of the ‘social newspaper’ services like Paper.li.

 

After connecting your Twitter, Facebook and Instagram accounts, you get the option to create your first magazine, choosing from a number of template styles and color schemes.

 

You then dive into creating the magazine, without quite so much guidance about what you’re doing or why. Tools along the top of the magazine allow you to add content from the likes of Google searches, YouTube content, Instagram photos, Twitter, RSS feeds (you have to enter the feed URL) – or content you’ve clipped from around the Web using a blookmarklet.

 

Once you’ve added as much content as you like, one piece of content per page, you can publish your magazine to share with others. As yet, it appears that these can’t be viewed by anyone not in the beta...."

Mike, you are very welcome.

By the way, if I may ask, which is the original scoop that you are referring to with your thanks?
