Thank you for the rescoop. I really like this video. I am lucky to be the first scoop for your site. I have used scoop.it since March of 2011 and I am very happy with it. My best advice to new members is to create a strategic tagging system that is comfortable for you and then tag everything. It makes it easy for you and your followers to find articles later and Scoop.it will reward you with a high score, because they value an organized web. Best of luck to you!
