Hi students (and visitors). If you are having trouble with your profile photo changing every time that you post a new scoop, you can fix it by following these directions that a representative from Scoop.it sent me:
Indeed there's a setting to avoid that. Tell your students that on their Curate page, click on Manage>Customizations>untick "Last Post Image" box and click on Save.

The More You Automate, The Less You Curate: Sense-Making Requires Manual Effort

Stephen Dale's insight:

I can understand where Harold Jarche is coming from on this piece, but the missing element for me is THE PURPOSE of your curation activity. Frictionless curation is perfectly sensible of it's for your own purpose - e.g. creating collections of useful content for learning or research. It's different if you are curating for the purpose of adding insight or value for others, in which case the 'sensing and sharing' becomes more relevant.

Pin Your Scoop: Create Visual Collections From Your Best Scoops

Pin Your Scoop: Create Visual Collections From Your Best Scoops | The Social Web | Scoop.it

Robin Good: If you are looking for ways to let your scoop.it content to reach more people and to get discovered by those who are not yet aware of you, the new Pinterest integration in Scoop.it should certainly be a welcome addition.

 

With this new addition, not only you can share your curated stories inside your Scoop.it newsradar with your Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin, Tumblr and Wordpress friends, but you can also "pin" selected ones to create alternative "collections" on Pinterest.

One potentially good approach is the one of leveraging Pinterest to do what Scoop.it is not (yet) so good at. For example, after you have been curating a newsradar for a while, you can easily create "greatest hits" collections out of the best ones, or sub-thematic digests on specific topics, and Pinterest is a perfect tool to do that.

In essence you can "re-curate" your own curated news, in alternative ways which take advantage of Pinterest strength in building "visual collections" rather than news channels.

 

N.B.: To access the new "Pin it" button on Scoop.it, click the sharing button below any scoop and you will find it there next to the G+ one.
