Capture, Organize and Publish Your Curated Content Collections with Clipboard

Robin Good's curator insight, April 1, 2013 7:52 AM



In my humble opinion, Clipboard is the best capture and clipping tool for curation work that you can use today.  This is the real Pinterest on steroids. This free web app allows you to easily grab any text, image, area or full web page from any web site and to save it in your collection.


To be specific "you can clip text, photos, animations, videos, or all of the above mixed together. You can clip entire web pages or strip them down to just text. You can drag-and-drop images and text files from your desktop to Clipboard. You can create your own notes directly in Clipboard and save them as clips. You can also - if you are using a Google Chrome browser - bookmark entire PDF web pages (but you cannot clip sections of PDF files)."


The Clipboard browser extensions for Chrome and Firefox and the generic bookmarklet which can work on any browser is a little technology gem, making the capture work an absolute breeze.


Clipboard allows your collections to be set for public or private use, and it makes it easy to invite you other people that you want to contribute to your curation work.


Clips can be tagged, commented, annotated and shared with specific users (via mentioning their name handle). Clipboard collections can be easily shared on all major social networks, or embedded in any web site or blog.


On the display and navigation front good news too. Collections can be viewed in one of three possible modes (tile, item and list view).


Free to use.

eBay Goes The Pinterest Way and Allows You To Discover and Curate Your Favorite Products

eBay Goes The Pinterest Way and Allows You To Discover and Curate Your Favorite Products | SocialMediaDesign | Scoop.it


Robin Good: eBay has gone the Pinterest way by redesigning its web interface and allowing you to curate your preferred product categories as well as more specific parameters like the price range you are interested in, whether you want new or used items or prefer auctions to "buy-now" offerings. 

 

"Everything now centers on a Pinterest-like feed of featured, personalized, and self-curated products."

 

WebProNews reports: eBay says that the feed will show users “a collection of items selected for you, based on your shopping history or your own personal interests.” When a logged-in user first accesses the feed, they are given the opportunity to “follow” certain types of product lines as well as connect their feed to their Facebook interests.

 

eBay officially announced: “Today we begin to introduce a series of significant new features and enhancements for our customers. We’re delivering a cleaner, contemporary look and feel; a more intuitive, convenient way to browse, decide and buy – both globally and locally; and a new personal way to curate your own shopping experience and discover items perfect for you...” 

 

To test the new eBay curated feed, interface redesign and new logo, head to eBay.com (US version) and you will be immediately offered to select five product categories you are interested in.

 

The new eBay also allows users to integrate their Facebook account as well as their PayPal one to make it easier and faster to sell and buy on the popular online marketplace.

 

Check it out now: http://www.ebay.com/feed

How To Create a RSS Feed for a Specific Pinterest Board or User

How To Create a RSS Feed for a Specific Pinterest Board or User | SocialMediaDesign | Scoop.it

Robin Good: News and content curators are always hungry for RSS feeds, as these are the best vehicle to receive any change-update from a web site without needing to go out and check. But not always, web public services that let users generate content, are open and happy to let you grab a RSS feed.

 

Case in point Pinterest. 

 

While the service provides a RSS feed for any user that includes all of the updates and posts he has made, these are all uncategorized and mixed together, regardless of which board they were collected in.

 

"To generate this RSS simply click on the user’s profile and select the RSS icon on the left of the page. Another way to do this is to add feed.rss to the end of the user’s profile; for example, if you want to see the latest pins by Felicia Day your RSS URL would look like this http://pinterest.com/feliciaday/feed.rss."

 

To get instead the RSS feed for a specific board, here is what you need to do:

"...first open the board (e.g. Felicia Day’s Geekin Board), then, remove the last “/” from the URL and add .rss – your end URL will look like http://pinterest.com/feliciaday/geekin.rss

The RSS feed will show you the last 20 or so pins created in that board rather than the full contents."

 

Useful. 8/10

Curate Your Own Video Board: Chill Is The New Pinterest for Video

Robin Good: Chill, the video sharing and discovery site, has just introduced a new feature that allows anyone to clip and share, on a Pinterest-like thematic board, all of the video clips he finds on the web.

 

The new Chill bookmarklet works very much like the Pinterest one. When you click it, a page shows you all of the video clips found in that page and offers you to clip and "post" the one you want, with your comments. 

 

It's as easy as that.

 

The generated "curated" Chill video boards are easy to scan and browse, though, in my view, a great boon would be the ability to check a few of those videos and to click a play button that plays them full screen back to back. This way I have the best of curated content, my own selection, and the final lay-back and watch gratification option. 

 

Very promising.

Pinterest: What Early Adopters Need to Know

Pinterest: What Early Adopters Need to Know | SocialMediaDesign | Scoop.it

This piece was written by Jeff Turner, it makes you STOP and think. Pinterest is the latest new shiny thing but as Jeff says, buyer beware. His insights are right on the money.

 

He asks us to know the enviornment before we start posting and promoting. Here's an excerpt:

 

The Pinterest Stream And Fools Gold

 

Avoid Self Promotion:

 

"Pinterest is designed to curate and share things you love. If there is a photo or project you’re proud of, pin away! However, try not to use Pinterest purely as a tool for self-promotion".

 

Here are the takeaways:

 

My advice here is going to be the same advice I give people in any new social network... go have some fun first.

 

**Be social. Get to know the community, the lay of the land. The rest will sort itself out.

 

**The first thing that happens when the real estate community for example, "discovers" a new social media site is they focus on the media, not the social. This is a mistake. It leads to mining in the wrong streams.

5 Hot Tips for Brands to Connect With Consumers on Pinterest

5 Hot Tips for Brands to Connect With Consumers on Pinterest | SocialMediaDesign | Scoop.it

This piece was written by Lauren Drell for American Express Open Forum -

 

 

Intro:

 

We've all been hearing a lot about Pinterest lately, so you're probably wondering whether you should take the plunge and create a profile for your company.

 

****We say you go for it, especially if women are your target consumers–70 percent of pinners are female.

 

**Pinterest has a highly engaged audience–a reported 3.3 million users logging more than 421 million page views–so there's plenty of opportunity for brands to flesh out pinboards and catch pinners' eyes.

 

"Join these brands' efforts of staying ahead of the social media curve by joining–and having fun with– Pinterest".

 

Here's what caught my attention:

 

****Beyond pushing one's products, you also can use Pinterest as a way to convey your company culture–post pictures of the office, the mascot, people's cubicles, lunch breaks and office events. Fans are interested in these details, and this imagery helps to humanize the brand.

 

For a look at what some brands are already doing on Pinterest, check out the roundup below. Perhaps they'll inspire your own boards.

 

Here's just one brand example........

 

West Elm: The furniture brand posts images of various rooms–bedrooms, bathrooms and kitchens–to inspire the interior designer in you. By showering you with beautiful homes, it gets you thinking about nesting without taking an overtly sales-y approach.

 

My commentary:

 

This article says 70% of pinners are female and that may be true for today but this is just the beginning and lots of men are starting to pin as well. I see all kinds of possibilities here for many brands aiming at women or men. Like I told people in 1994 when the web was just beginning and there weren't many people online, it's a good idea to put your stake in the ground now as it's evolving because this is going to be big!

 

I can speak from experience, Pinterest is amazing on so many levels. Think of it as a new restaurant, you don't just eat in one place do you? Don't put your social networking campaign in one or two baskets, get on board for a very interesting ride. Please feel free to comment or share any experiences you're having, would love to hear from you and follow you there too:-).

Not convinced? Let's take a look at exactly how visual contentis positively contributing to marketing strategies -- it may just give you the push you need

 

"Learn why visual content is a critical part of your content creation strategy.

 

Here are some highlights:

 

**People remember only 20% of what they read

 

**83% of learning is visual

 

Condenses and Explains Large Amounts of Information

 

**Today, there is too much information on the Internet you have about 3 seconds to catch someone’s eyes so they'll consume your information.

 

Gives Your Brand an Identity

 

**Visual content draws people in, letting viewers better understand your brand's identity

 

Drives User Engagement

 

**If you've ever read a book with a child, you probably know they find pictures more interesting than words; but are adults really that different?

It's a great illustration of why you should be on Pinterest and how you should use it.

 

Excerpt:

 

"Photos are highly engaging and the rise of the visual pinboard Pinterest is to become the 60th most visited site in the US last month provides more data to verify the attractiveness of beautiful images on this visual pinboard social media network site"

 

Who's using Pinterest?

 

**Females 25-34 – 27%

**Females 35-44 – 29%

**Females 45-54 – 24%

 

How Engaging is Pinterest?

 

What is more telling is to compare the amount of time that the average user spends per month on the other social networks as a comparison measure of the level of engagement.

 

**Facebook is the most engaging site on the planet at 405 minutes per month

**Pinterest and Tumblr are equal in second place at 89 minutes

**Twitter comes in third at 21 minutes

**LinkedIn – 17 minutes

**Google Plus – 3 minutes

5 Ways Writers Can Break Out of the Tired Old Social Media Box | SocialMediaDesign | Scoop.it

The social media world is changing daily. In other words, we must be alert and aware of the new tools that could support us in our approach. This interesting article speaks about some "new" tools that can also help us to go towards to success. [note Martin Gysler]

 

It’s time to teach that old dog some new tricks.

 

That old dog I’m referring to is social media.

 

Sure, you’re already blogging, and on Twitter, LinkedIn, Google+, Facebook, and more. Great.

 

But I’m telling you — there’s more to social media than meets the eye. The final chapter on social media hasn’t been written.

 

When I kicked off my writing business in April, I decided to use social media my way.

 

I approached these overused networks as if I’d never heard of them. I made my own rules. I set different expectations. You could say I wrote my own chapter on social media marketing.

You Are What You Curate: Why Pinterest is So Hot

You Are What You Curate: Why Pinterest is So Hot | SocialMediaDesign | Scoop.it

This piece was written by Om Malik for Gigaom

 

The author says "Pinterest is one of the hottest startups around these days and represents the latest buzzword in the Valley: curation".

 

Here's what you need to know:

 

2012 will likely see an acceleration of structured, push button, social curation across the web. Why? Because most users don’t want to take much effort to produce content, and consuming content in a structured manner (especially photos) is also much faster.

 

**Just as the first wave of social media has transformed the consumption of information,

 

**this next wave of social curation will fundamentally change how users find and interact with content over time.

 

My commentary:

 

 As a business person, I see tremendous value in Pinterest because as the title of this article suggests, what we post online tells a story about who we are, what we represent and shows a human side through our curated topics. This allows others who may be potential customers to find points of connection which is a great way to start a relationship. It also gives me a chance to listen by observation to what my audience wants at a deeper level. This is a great starting place and can lead to many opportunities that lie ahead.

 

Excerpt:

 

**platforms — YouTube, WordPress and Tumblr — have had more success, thanks to faster, cheaper broadband connections. Twitter and Facebook are the big winners of this sharing.

 

**Are thinking about building a product, evaluating a company or just wondering why early adopters are so crazy about Pinterest, Instagr.am or Quora?   

 

**we’re playing a role in a movie: edited, directed and starring us.

I selected this post written by Elad Gil because not only was it interesting and timely, but the comments from his readers were equally as valuable. So many different social curation platforms emerging, Pinterest is one to watch.......

 

Excerpt:

 

Social Content Curation As The Next Big Thing

 

The most interesting wave hitting the social web in 2012 is social curation. This was kicked off in 2011 as Pinterest's growth was noticed by Silicon Valley and a number of companies quickly followed suit -

 

**Snip.It launched as a social information curation platform, Quora adopted boards for a similar purpose, and Fab.com launched a structured social commerce feed.

 

There's so much information in this post, here's the takeaway. I would love to hear your comments about this next wave......

 

Takeaway:

 

2012 Will Be The Year of Curated Sets


**2012 will likely see an acceleration of structured, push button, social curation across the web. Why? Because most users don't want to take much effort to produce content, and consuming content in a structured manner (especially photos) is also much faster.

 

**Just as the first wave of social media has transformed the consumption of information, this next wave of social curation will fundamentally change how users find and interact with content over time.
