Social Curation At Its Best

Social Curation At Its Best | Social Media Content Curation | Scoop.it
There is a staggering amount content being generated online at this very moment. The average number of tweets sent per day is up to 140 million. More than 35 hours worth of video is uploaded onto YouTube each minute, with over two billion videos watched per day.
