Kwout - A way to quote from websites | Social media kitbag | Scoop.it
A brilliant way to quote
helpingmedia's insight:

Kwout enables you to grab part of a web page and embed the element in a blog or website or share via social media with links back to the original. Could be useful for writing articles where you need to source other sites.

helpingmedia's insight:

Great tool for sharing quotes from articles and embedding them. From the site:  "QUOTE.fm is the best way to discover, read, collect, recommend, curate, and discuss written stories."  Tested it here. http://www.mediahelpingmedia.org/blog/how-to-give-quotes-a-life-of-their-own/

Great functionality but the design and presentation need a wholesale makeover and presentation options for enjoyable reading. Otherwise I'm not sure readers won't get bored and go elsewhere. Thanks for sharing it.

Hi Jeff, agreed. I also noticed that if I use the tablet version I can't quote directly from an article. I seem to have to grab the url from my browser, move over to the app, paste it in and do it that way round. Too many steps. (perhaps I am doing something wrong). Also, I would like to be able to add a bit more context around the collection. I have raised a few points in the piece (linked to above).
