New Social Content Discovery Platform: Ping.it

New Social Content Discovery Platform: Ping.it | The world | Scoop.it

Giuseppe Mauriello: I received an invitation some hours ago to join into closed beta test of Ping.it (formerly StormDriver).

It is a social content discovery platform that allows people to ping where they are in the Web right now, locate others in real time, and join them on any page.

 

From About Page:

"Ping.it offers a new way to discover interesting content in a social setting. Instead of leaving updates on social networks, just like notes on a fridge, simply share the experience of discovering content in real time, together. Don’t wait for people to tell you what they’re doing. Instead, take a look at Ping.it and join them on the spot!

 

With Ping.it you can see what pages others are visiting right now. You can also get pinged about the good stuff they find or ping your own discoveries.

 

Ping.it is all about the real-time aspect of the Web. Being aware of where your friends are online is one thing. Another is that you can instantly know what’s hot. In Ping.it you can see how many other users are interacting with a page, and if things get interesting you can get notified and join in the fun!

 

Every ping can be send to a specific topic – and all the people who follow it. This way you will immediately know if a new interesting page was pinged to any topic you follow. You can create your own topics, invite contributors, and together create useful scrapbooks of content. All topics have their own unique URL’s, so that you can share your best collaborations with the outside world.

 

We use cloud-enhanced browsing in order to let you enjoy your favorite content from within Ping.it. Instead of searching for stuff outside and then reporting on your findings through social networks..."

The Future Of News: New Startups Like NewsCred, NewsLook And Upworthy Are Succeeding At Syndication

The Future Of News: New Startups Like NewsCred, NewsLook And Upworthy Are Succeeding At Syndication | The world | Scoop.it

Excerpted from article by Ken Doctor and published on Nieman Journalism Lab:

"In the endless world of digital content, there must be a big business in gathering together some of the world’s best, creating a marketplace, and selling stream upon stream.

 

Producers of content want to see the content they produced used and reused, over and over again, helping offset the high cost of news creation.

So let’s look at the newsonomics of Syndication 3.0:

 

- NewsCred:

This is syndication meets marketing services: As news companies both produce content and try to act as regional ad agencies, the synergies between the two are becoming more evident.
Timing is everything: We’ve seen a maturation in curation technologies, as metatagging gets easier and cheaper, allowing niched feeds.

 

- NewsLook:

It positions itself as a technology and curation company, adding value to a mass of content.

Think niche. Think video. Both have audiences that may be paying ones; video ad rates are still holding up far better than text.

 

- Upworthy:

Founder Eli Pariser defines its would-be audience: “At best, things online are usually either awesome or meaningful, but everything on Upworthy.com has a little of both. Sensational and substantial. Entertaining and enlightening. Shocking and significant. That’s what you can expect here: No empty calories. No pageview-juking slideshows. No right-column sleaze. Just a steady stream of the most irresistibly shareable stuff you can click on without feeling bad about yourself afterwards.”

 

Other startups are mentioned in this article: 

- California Watch;

- The AllMedia Platform;

- Deseret News Service;

- Ok.com; 

 

Each startup has a detailed introduction about itself. Read full, long and interesting article here:

Webinars Curation: Find, Rate and Organize The Best Online Events and Lessons with Hublished

Webinars Curation: Find, Rate and Organize The Best Online Events and Lessons with Hublished | The world | Scoop.it

Robin Good: Hublished has announced a new web service, launching privately this fall, that allows "publishers" to host, upload and deliver live webinars, and for "peers" to find, curate, organize and save the most interesting ones into their own collections / hubs.

For the first time ever, educated consumers and professionals can discover and share live, recent, and upcoming content from brands and experts.

 

"Hublished solves two problems, for the two different types of users that will be on the site.

 

For experts and brands, whom we call Publishers, Hublished is a central location they can promote upcoming webinars and upload recent ones, in order to reach new consumers and generate leads. For professionals and industry enthusiasts, whom we call Peers, Hublished provides a discovery and curation platform that helps them separate the hacks from the experts when it comes to cutting-edge information and continuing education."

CakeStyle Is New Service That Delivers Stylist-Curated Clothing Of Women’s Fashion

CakeStyle Is New Service That Delivers Stylist-Curated Clothing Of Women’s Fashion | The world | Scoop.it

From Official Website:

"CakeStyle is a personal styling service for busy women that delivers a box of handpicked clothing and accessories to your door each season. Our expert CakeStylists select pieces from brands like Elie Tahari, Diane von Furstenberg, and Theory based on your fit and wardrobe needs. We then send your box to your door, and you keep what you love and send back the rest. Shipping both ways and stylists' services are free!

 

CakeStyle was created to take the hassle out of shopping. Going to the store, trying on clothes, and making returns is time consuming and tiring, especially for busy women; that's where CakeStyle comes in..."

 

 

From review article on TechCrunch:

"CakeStyle asks customers to provide “some basic information about what you currently wear, what you’d like to wear and your sizing” (either via email or phone). Then its stylists handpick a seasonal shipment of clothing and accessories from the company’s inventory, and they also include a video explaining the choices.

Once the selection has arrived at your door, you can send back anything you don’t like, and you only pay for what you keep.

Customers can also meet stylists in person at the company’s showroom in Chicago’s River North neighborhood...."

 

[the service is active U.S. only for now]

Curate Your Online Fashion Store And Earn For Items Sold From It: Boutine

Curate Your Online Fashion Store And Earn For Items Sold From It: Boutine | The world | Scoop.it

Robin Good: Boutine is a women clothing and fashion platform allowing you to create custom collections and to earn commissions on the items sold through it.

 

From Techcrunch: "Sourcing items from a variety of indie designers, over half of whom are international, Boutine organizes and presents the pieces in a drag-and-drop interface where women can create looks using tops, bottoms, dresses, handbags, jewelry and other accessories.

 

Of some 300 signups from designers, Boutine curated the selection down to just 75 designers, with help from a team of experts from the fashion industry.

 

In addition to the mix-and-matching Boutine allows, users can also add their own Instagram photos to their collections (as the outfits or outfit groups are called). This allows them to start with a photo of something they already own, then find other items to match with it.

 

For example, you could find a necklace to complement a date-night dress, or some new jeans to go with a shirt you love. When collections are complete, they can be shared to all the usual places – Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, or even blogs via embed codes or a WordPress plugin.

 

According to the site FAQ, Boutine charges a 20% commission on products sold, and Stylists (that’s you) would receive a 10% commission for putting the look together.

 

Boutine collects the total commission and distributes the appropriate amount to the Boutique Owner, meaning the bloggers, stylists, and fashion enthusiast who are the active participants building collections on the site."

Create, Discover, Share And Monetize Content With New Curation iOS App: QI Post | The world | Scoop.it

Giuseppe Mauriello: The goal of this new iOS app (beta invite only now) is new approach to journalism redefining the way people create, discover, share and monetize content.

 

From "About Us" Page:

"We are building an innovative mobile media that tackles the inefficiencies in today's media landscape.

 

Our vision is to create a socially relevant, transparent, dynamic and self-sustaining "editorial ecosystem" that as users, we would want.

 

We curate contents based on how well they are received by the editor community – that is, you and other QI users. The more attention a story captures, the more relevant it becomes to QI users, and the more media value the QI Contributor gains. All you need to do is find the stories that interest you, and enjoy them. We'll capture the content popularity, and compensate the contributors accordingly. We call this "crowd-curation".

 

At QI Post, content curation is a perfect blend of automated formula and handpicked selection. We are your content butler. Anytime. Anywhere."
