Six steps to easy content curation.
Curation is sometimes confusing. Everyone has a different definition and it's used in many different ways as part of content and marketing strategies.
I asked 10 of my favorite curation experts for their best tips, tools, their favorite curator and suggestions on innovative uses of curation. Each is a curator on Scoop.it, my favorite curation tool and channel. New and experienced curators are going to learn from their advice.

Robin Good: Scoop.it has just launched a new set of features that help curators find more easily other content by introducing a new visual search feature, while enhancing individual post display, sharing options and addig a dedicated user search option.
The new features, are definitely a plus providing some long due oxygen to some of the more asphitic Scoop.it areas: news and curators discovery.
There is a lot more to do on this front, but these apear to be definitely some good initial steps in the right direction.
I am particularly fond of the new individual post display and layout, which truly expands the opportunities to lean more about related the topics, comments and the curator behind the channel.
Good joob Scoop.it team!

Robin Good: Zeen, the new app from the original founder of YouTube is finally coming, and it has opened its doors to private beta users.
While I am waiting to get in and start testing it myself, I share with you the official launch news as picked up by Giuseppe Mauriello from TheNextWeb review:
"YouTube founders launched a teaser for a new project called Zeen.
It’s similarly based around the idea of content curation, but whereas Delicious is about tags and bookmarks, Zeen is a more developed version of the ‘social newspaper’ services like Paper.li.
After connecting your Twitter, Facebook and Instagram accounts, you get the option to create your first magazine, choosing from a number of template styles and color schemes.
You then dive into creating the magazine, without quite so much guidance about what you’re doing or why. Tools along the top of the magazine allow you to add content from the likes of Google searches, YouTube content, Instagram photos, Twitter, RSS feeds (you have to enter the feed URL) – or content you’ve clipped from around the Web using a blookmarklet.
Once you’ve added as much content as you like, one piece of content per page, you can publish your magazine to share with others..."
