PressForward is a free open-source, WordPress plugin for curating most any type of content within the standard WordPress publishing workflow.

PressForward is in fact a full-fledged RSS feed reader and aggregator which can capture content coming from any site while allowing full editing and curation abilities. It is an ideal tool for news curators wanting to have a news gathering and discovery tool integrated into their standard publishing and editing environment.


PressForward is designed to be used by multiple users, like in a distributed newsroom, where several individuals or even a small community suggest and submit and others edit, approve and post selected content.

To gather content PressForward offers a standard bookmarklet to capture any content you find on the web, and can also import OPML files to allow you to aggregate and filter all of your favorite RSS feeds. 


Last but not least, PressForward keeps close tabs on the sources you utilise, by automatically creating attribution links for any content you curate and allowing you to have your posts optionally auto-redirect to the original source. 


Free to use.

Curating and sharing content is an important way of building your authority in your writing niche. If you really want to understand how to curate, follow Robin Good's "Content Curation World" on Scoop.it.


Robin shared this WordPress plugin that can help you find and post interesting content directly inside WordPress. I'll be testing this soon.

Janet Vasil's curator insight, May 14, 2015 4:25 PM

Lots of paid content curation services are available online.  Here's a free open source wordpress plugin that's a good starting tool for a new content creator with full editing and curation capabilities.

Robin Good's curator insight, June 29, 2014 10:20 AM



Happy Friends is a new free tool created by Dave Winer which allows you to closely follow those Twitter accounts for which you don't want to miss a beat. 


Happy Friends makes it easy for you to add (but not to delete for now) any Twitter account you want and to easily expand it to see all of its most recent tweets. 


The result is a simple interface which lists your favorite Twitter sources and allows you to check rapidly what each one of them has posted. 


What may escape anyone not reading this, is that by clicking on any of the headlines displayed inside Happy Friends you get to see the full Twitter card display, just as it was intended to be seen on Twitter with integrated images and video. 


Happy Friends fulfils for me a true need, as with Twitter typical readers and tools (including lists) it is very difficult to track specific sources postings without doing a few click acrobatics. 


I hope that in one of the upcoming versions, the formatting of the tweets will also be improved as to make it easier for the eye to rapidly scan the information presented. The twitter grey icons on the left do to little to quiet down the noise created by all the the tweet texts and links appearing on the Happy Friends page. Vertical spacing between items and separating text from links would significantly improve legibility and rapid eye-scanning of the content.


Very useful.


Free to use.

Pluto.tv is a new web service which curates the best video clips available online by organizing content coming from YouTube and many other video sharing sites into thematic programs of 30 minutes each.


The interface is very similar to the one utilized by program guide viewers on standard cable TV.


Pluto.tv offers already more than 100 thematic video channels all curated by human beings.


My comment: An effective approach to surface great video content 

while delivering it in a familiar and consumable format.


 Available also as an app for iOS and Android.

Let Your Readers Select What They Want To Get From Your RSS Feed with SpecificFeeds


Via Robin Good
Stephen Dale's insight:

A useful app for syndicating RSS content using tags, author or keywords. Fills a gap in the market for this type of functionality (not available in Feedburner) and nice to see that some people still see RSS as a viable means of consuming information.

Permita a sus lectores seleccionar lo que quieren obtener de su Feed RSS con SpecificFeeds

SpecificFeeds es una aplicación web gratuita que ofrece a sus lectores de RSS la oportunidad de suscribirse únicamente al tipo de noticias e historias en las que estén interesados. Para ello les permite seleccionar etiquetas, palabras clave y autores que quieren leer.

Usted sólo tiene que enviar su feed RSS a SpecificFeeds y el servicio crea automáticamente una página web y un icono que puede compartir o publicar en su sitio web para ayudar a los que quieran suscribirse a sus noticias, pero que prefiere los temas pre-seleccionados, etiquetas o autores que les gusta ver.

SpecificFeeds actúa como un filtro de RSS y servicio de distribución de contenido que proporciona un beneficio útil para los que lo consumen. El hecho de que se suscriba a un autor o una revista web, no significa que usted desee leer todo lo que allí se publica. SpecificFeeds ayuda a los editores web y lectores de reducir el ruido y aumentar la señal cuando se utilizan los canales RSS.

Puede probarlo en: http://www.specificfeeds.com/

Curate Your Favorite Content Into Visual Topic Channels with Topik.in


Via Robin Good
Stephen Dale's insight:

A news curation tool. A possible alternative to Scoop.it. Easier to use, but not as feature rich (e.g. lacks some of Scoop.it social sharing and publishing options)

 

Reading time: 5 mins

Robin Good's curator insight, April 26, 2015 12:40 PM



Topik.in is a new news curation app, similar in many ways to a much simplified version of Scoop.it. With a dedicated bookmarklet you can basically curate and personalise any content you find online and post it to a dedicated *virtual board* on Topik.in


There's none of the advanced backend content discovery engine features, nor the powerful embedding, domain name mapping, social sharing and publishing options that Scoop.it offers, but Topik.in is also much simpler and for anyone who would find Scoop.it too complex or feature-rich for his initial needs, it could be a potential starting point.


Posts appear in a layout much similar to Scoop.it two-column magazine vertical layout. Content can be easily shared on all major social channels, and when a reader clicks on a curated post, the full original content page loads up under a Topik.in frame that maintains context and reference to the original curated post.


It is possible to follow other boards and to repost content posted by others. During Beta each user can create up to 8 curated boards on different topics.


Good for anyone wanting to get his feet wet with news curation without needing to get a more complex tool and without needing to spend anything. 


English and Spanish languages supported.


Free to use.

A Flipped-Up Twitter Feed with Only The Good Stuff In It: Vellum

A Flipped-Up Twitter Feed with Only The Good Stuff In It: Vellum | The Social Web | Scoop.it

Via Robin Good
Stephen Dale's insight:

Vellum acts as a reading list  for your Twitter feed, finding all the links that are being shared by those you follow on Twitter and displaying them each with their full titles and descriptions. 

This flips the Twitter model, treating the links as primary and the commentary as secondary (you can still see all the tweets about each link, but they are less prominent). 


Vellum puts a spotlight on content, making it easy to find what you should read next.

Robin Good's insight:

 

 Docubase is a project of the MIT Open Documentary Lab that aims to create a collaborative, participatory community around a growing collection of innovative documentaries curated by experts and outsiders alike.

 

Documentaries can be searched and sorted easily in a number of ways (most recent, most viewed, alphabetical order / or as a list rather than a mosaic). The interface is slick, colorful and simple to use.

 

More than 140 documentaries are already available and a selected group of curators has put together a number of publicly available playlists designed aroound key themes connecting these clips. 

 

Playlists: http://docubase.upian.com/playlist/ 

 

The curators: http://docubase.upian.com/curator/ 

 

A fantastic resource for documentary lovers and a great example of how in an open and participatory project, curation can play a fundamental role.

Sometimes you need an archive of a site. Gret for slow bandwidth areas when you just want to show an aspect of a site. Here is how.

Alfredo Corell's curator insight, November 3, 2013 9:24 AM

When you Mummify a webpage—a news article, blog post, photo or tweet, for example— we make a permanent copy and back it up in the cloud. We then give you a new URL that looks like this: http://mummify.it/2452862


Mummify is free up to 100 mummies a month. If you need to Mummify more than 100 pages in a given month you can purchase 50 more for $5.
