Scoop.it!

Diigo

Diigo | Social media kitbag | Scoop.it

Web Highlighter and Sticky Notes, Online Bookmarking and Annotation, Personal Learning Network. From the site "Diigo is a powerful research tool and a knowledge-sharing community"

 

Has similarities to Goozy but also enables you to capture and store webpages in the cloud, so if they disappear you still have a record.

 

Also, you can add notes to those pages and highlight them as well as sharing. Looks neat.

 

Have signed up and will test. Please add thoughts, experiences below.

BagTheWeb and Connotea

BagTheWeb and Connotea | Social media kitbag | Scoop.it

Found this piece on Robin Good's site. I have already signed up for and am using Pearltrees and Scoop.it, but not BagTheWeb and Connotea, so I can't recommend or give any feedback. However, I would be interested in any experiences people have had using them. Please add comments below.

Scoop.it!

Paper.li

Paper.li | Social media kitbag | Scoop.it
A daily newspaper built from all the articles, blog posts, videos and photos shared on Twitter or Facebook. You can make your paper out of the tweets of those you follow, a Twitter list or with a #hashtag.

You can also set it to auto-tweet every edition, but be careful, some consider this twitter spam, so I turned my auto-tweet off and, as a result, views and retweets have fallend dramaticially.

I use this a lot in training by getting all participants to tweet with a particular #hashtag and then I create a paper made up of all the tweets with that tag in.

Here is my Paper.li. http://paper.li/helpingmedia

Spundge - collaborative curation

Spundge - collaborative curation | Social media kitbag | Scoop.it

Spundge lets you collaboratively discover, curate, and create better content.

helpingmedia's insight:

This could be good for news teams involved in collaborative news gathering. I read about it online and will test it and report on my blog.

KBucket - curation

KBucket - curation | Social media kitbag | Scoop.it

Another curation tool. KBucket creates pages with links and descriptions. Suggested by @KBucketeer in a post on Media Helping Media. 

 

From the site: "KBucket is a user indexed search site. A place where experts “content curators” organize, comment, tag and publish their research. All KBucket pages are organized in multiple related lists of links."

 

I have yet to try this. Please add any experiences below.

Storyful

Storyful | Social media kitbag | Scoop.it
Similar to Storify in that it is an online content management system that enables you to include assets in your story from Twitter, YouTube, Flickr, Google search and RSS feeds.

However, Storyful then presents your contribution alongside others in a portal of contributions where all can comment and share. I have signed up, and it looks great, but I still need to test it.

Pearltrees

Pearltrees | Social media kitbag | Scoop.it
Great curation tools for teaming up with people to organise, discover and share the stuff you like. (Different purpose than Scoop.it or Curated.by).

I like this because others can share material with me and, together, we can create peals of information for all to benefit from.

Storify

Storify | Social media kitbag | Scoop.it
Great curation and news production tool enabling journalists to gather assets from Twitter, Facebook, Flickr, YouTube, the web, RSS, blogs and Storify itself and then to create asset-rich stories which, when published, are virally disseminated.

I am using this a lot in training courses with great results. What's also useful is that you can embed the stories you create in most blogs by just copy and pasting the script across.

Here is my Storify http://storify.com/helpingmedia and here is how one story, created with Storify, has been imported into my Joomla site http://bit.ly/eQr9X3.
