Facebook Introduces Pinterest-Style, Curated "Collections"

Facebook Introduces Pinterest-Style, Curated "Collections" | Share Some Love Today | Scoop.it

Robin Good: Facebook has introduced a new curation feature designed to allow its users to collect and organize their favorite "products" into so-called "Collections".

 

According to Hubspot "the new feature called 'Collections,' allows marketers to add “Want” or “Collect” buttons to news feed posts about products."

 

Source: http://blog.hubspot.com/blog/tabid/6307/bid/33698/Facebook-Tests-Pinterest-Style-Feature-Called-Collections.aspx

 

The new FB "Collections" is publicly available to everyone, and it is being tested "with 7 retail partners -- Pottery Barn, Wayfair, Victoria’s Secret, Michael Kors, Neiman Marcus, Smith Optics, and Fab.com."

(you need to go to those FB brad pages to test it).

 

It also seems that the feature can be activated in at least three different ways by one of these three upcoming action buttons:

 

a) "Want": adds the product to a Timeline section of a user's profile called “Wishlist”

 

b) "Collect": adds the item to a Collection called “Products”

 

c) "Like": a special version of the standard "Like" button that also adds the item to “Products”

 

N.B.: While Collections are free for business pages to use, they're only visible to the page's fans. You have to "Like" the page in order to see these types of posts.

Curation Tools: The Amsterdam-Born Pinterest Look-Alike for Hip and Cool Stuff - 20Blinks

"...20blinks gives content curation a heady, Dutch twist.

 

If Pinterest opened people's eyes to the joys of content curation, 20blinks unleashes their souls.

 

Supposedly, 20Blinks is a place for sharing and appreciating the finer, funkier things across cultures.

 

Like an ambient content curation platform, 20blinks is dedicated to sharing all things hip.

 

Many of the collections are a delightful trip. It's a mind-blowing place for sharing and discovery of:

- New music and classic grooves
- Contemporary art and photography
- Buzz-worthy books
- Exotic travel inspiration
- Fresh fashion and much more."

Curate Your Favorite Songs with Sworly

Curate Your Favorite Songs with Sworly | Share Some Love Today | Scoop.it

Robin Good: Sworly is Pinterest for audio tracks. If there is a music track on YouTube, Sworly will find it and let you pin it.

 

"Rather than encourage users to create interesting collections of images, Sworly brings the Pinterest approach to sharing music.

 

After logging in with Facebook (yes there’s annoyingly no other choice) you can start to add songs to Sworly if they haven’t already been added.

 

...At first glance, the ‘Add song’ feature is a little confusing, but it’s actually quite easy to use. Simply enter the artist name and song you want to share, and Sworly will automatically find the best video for you.

 

Add optional tags and a description and post it to your profile."

 

N.B.: There is currently no way to delete a song from your profile.

 

No collections or playlists (yet).

Music Future Relies On Curators - PBS [Video]

Robin Good: As the number of small labels and independent artists continues to grow at a frantic pace, music curators (of which many are former DJs), play list creators and compilation producers will be the true means by which quality music is discovered, shared and distributed online. 

 

"New PBS Off Book episode explores the evolution of music online and the rising importance of curation and collaboration."

 

A great video doc by PBS.
