Announcing: Curated Newsletters and MailChimp Integration | Scoop.it Blog

Announcing: Curated Newsletters and MailChimp Integration | Scoop.it Blog | Social Media and its influence | Scoop.it

This morning we released something really exciting — curated newsletter functionality! We recognize the role curation is playing in the evolution of the newsletter, and we wanted to provide an easy way for our users to expand their reach into the be-all-end-all of web communication — email. Seamlessly export your Scoop.it topic to a newsletter template or send to your email lists in MailChimp by connecting your accounts with the new MailChimp integration.

 

This feature is free with all Scoop.it accounts and is unlimited until April 15th. To access it, simply click “Manage” on your topic of choice and click “Create a Newsletter.”

The demise of quality content on the web

The demise of quality content on the web | Social Media and its influence | Scoop.it

This a great blog post from Rian van der Merwe , describing the noise you can find on the web now, and especially content just created for SEO purposes or advertisers. As many, Rian is tired of it.

 

"I used to believe that if you write with passion and clarity about a topic you know well (or want to know more about), you will find and build an audience. I believed that maybe, if you’re smart about it, you could find a way for some part of that audience to pay you money to sustain whatever obsession drove you to self-publishing"

 

===> The Scoop.it team can't agree more with this vision... <=== & ===>and me "Gust MEES" also and You? <===

 

Gust MEES: What about displaying in your name here also when You "rescoop" this scoop? Thanks in advance ;)

Pin Your Scoop: Create Visual Collections From Your Best Scoops

Pin Your Scoop: Create Visual Collections From Your Best Scoops | Social Media and its influence | Scoop.it

Robin Good: If you are looking for ways to let your scoop.it content to reach more people and to get discovered by those who are not yet aware of you, the new Pinterest integration in Scoop.it should certainly be a welcome addition.

 

With this new addition, not only you can share your curated stories inside your Scoop.it newsradar with your Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin, Tumblr and Wordpress friends, but you can also "pin" selected ones to create alternative "collections" on Pinterest.

One potentially good approach is the one of leveraging Pinterest to do what Scoop.it is not (yet) so good at. For example, after you have been curating a newsradar for a while, you can easily create "greatest hits" collections out of the best ones, or sub-thematic digests on specific topics, and Pinterest is a perfect tool to do that.

In essence you can "re-curate" your own curated news, in alternative ways which take advantage of Pinterest strength in building "visual collections" rather than news channels.
