New Social Content Discovery Tool: Hopflow

New Social Content Discovery Tool: Hopflow | Business in a Social Media World | Scoop.it

Giuseppe Mauriello: Hopflow is web and iOS social content discovery app which seeks to connect users with a stream of content based on their personal interests. It is similar to other services like Prismatic and Trapit.

 

From reviewed article by The Next Web:

"Hopflow lets users Discover and share content through following specific topics rather than individual sources, and based on these interests, a personalized flow of stories from around the Web is reeled in.

 

You’ll need to sign up with your Twitter or Facebook credentials.

Hopflow scanned my Twitter history and, quite accurately, told me all the subjects I am indeed interested in.

 

You can, of course, manually select and deselect options as you see fit, and once you click ‘Done’, you’ll have a long stream of news stories based around your topics of interest. It’s like Twitter, except you follow topics rather than accounts, and this comparison is given further credence with the ‘Rehop’ feature which lets you share your news with others.

 

“The social Web is full of content platforms that force people to manually follow and filter through sources and information,” says Erez Pilosof, CEO and Founder of Hopflow. ” In this contextual age, people want tools that are simple and provide targeted information. We believe that discovering and sharing stories about the things that interest you shouldn’t be tedious and time consuming but rather fun and easy. Hopflow eliminates unwanted noise and allows users to sit back and enjoy a beautiful image-based ‘flow’ of relevant content outside of their current social networks.”

How To Do News Curation Without Having Problems with Duplicate Content

How To Do News Curation Without Having Problems with Duplicate Content | Business in a Social Media World | Scoop.it

Robin Good: If you have been resisting the idea of curating news content on your web site because you are afraid of being penalized for having "duplicate" content, this article will shed some light on what is best to do to avoid it.


By working with titles, writing intros and commentaries to curated posts, linking out to relevant and credible sources, you have many variables at your disposal to make curation work for you, rather than against you.


Just follow the good advice contained in this good article by Josh Cunningham (author of the WP-Drudge for link and news aggregation) and you will be OK. It's the same approach I use to curate all my news channels. It does work.

Informative. Useful. 8/10

Workplace Mojo » Leaders: Stop Offering Breadsticks

Workplace Mojo » Leaders: Stop Offering Breadsticks | Business in a Social Media World | Scoop.it
The music was absolutely dreadful, yet I continued subjecting myself to it; it was a crisis situation, after all. Anything having to do with pizza rises to that level for me. On and on the music went, pummeling me with the occasional advertisement sandwiched between 90′s pop grooves. All that was missing was Casey Kasem’s love-child Ryan Seacrest chiming in to tell me about the song I would hear next.

I heard a loud “click” followed by what sounded like a cell phone recording of the inside of a school bus carrying a bunch of noisy seventh-graders back from a basketball game. I waited expectantly, but when I didn’t hear any discernible comment, I initiated the conversation.

Good news – not only have the team at LunaMetrics revamped the look of their graphic, they’ve also updated the content so that it now includes all the latest social media sizing information for Facebook, Twitter, Google+, YouTube, LinkedIn and Pinterest.

In social media, there is always something new to discover.

 

The other day, Misha Leybovich contacted me to let me know about Meograph, the platform she had co-founded with Francis Escuadro.

 

Basically, Meograph lets you pull multimedia items (maps, videos, photos, etc.) to create interactive videos that you can then share with people.

 

I think the idea is very interesting. I haven't tried the service yet, but decided to interview Misha to learn more about it.

The good news is that you can handle this. I’m not talking about writing an article for the New York Times. And, so far, there isn’t very much competition to face while taking advantage of this opportunity.
