ROCKZi Is Blekko’s New Social Content Curation Site: Hybrid Between Pinterest And Flipboard

ROCKZi Is Blekko’s New Social Content Curation Site: Hybrid Between Pinterest And Flipboard | Social Media C4 | Scoop.it

Robin Good: ROCKZi is a new social news discovery and sharing service launched by the human curated search engine Blekko.

 

The service intelligently leverages the great work done by its own human curators to generate a thematic news board that is an hybrid between the experience of Pinterest and the one of Flipboard.

 

From GigaOM: "...taking a cue from from other popular curation sites, ROCKzi was built to bring curation to a wider set of users through low-touch, passive curation tools.

 

The site surfaces fresh content from news sources curated by power blekko users and displays articles in topic-specific, searchable “news boards,” from “Geekery” and “Glitterati” to “SportZ” and “Red State.”

 

As of now, there are 33 boards but, over the next few weeks and months, it plans to expand to hundreds and then thousands more."

N.B.: Not only you can browse and discover news through the existing boards, but if you scroll below them, you will find a search box that allows you to dive and find news on ANY topic you want.

"With this shift in authority, Rubel proposes that as of 2010, the Internet has entered the Validation era, in which Internet users are beginning to “find the signal in the noise” and hold on to only those pieces of information and people that are most important to them online."

Curation tools are almost a dime a dozen! What's your favorite? [Nakeva]

Curation tools are almost a dime a dozen! What's your favorite? [Nakeva] | Social Media C4 | Scoop.it
From MyTweetMag:

Currently we are facing a massive growth of curation tools, that are getting better and better. While my personal favourites are still the pioneer of social aggregation tweetedtimes (I think quite everything started with it) and the curation tool scoop.it, there are a lot of tools in stealth-mode which look promising: I just read the fastcompany-article about percolate, a project that seems to follow the concept of scoop.it, but is based on twitter.

And also today I stumbled upon the curation tool ingenic, that is on stealth-mode either. And don’t forget how many tools we have seen so far: pearltrees, paperli, curated.by, storify, storiful, mytweetmag (of course;-) and so on and so on...
