Pinterest for News Is Here: It's Called NewsPeg!

Pinterest for News Is Here: It's Called NewsPeg! | Social Media, etc. | Scoop.it

Robin Good's insight:

« Newspeg is Pinterest for the news. Interface, dialog boxes and most of the superficial stuff you interact with on NewsPeg is 99% identical to what you are used to on Pinterest, making it easy for anyone already familiar with the visual pinning giant to start pinning news in no time at all.

As expected, there is a standard browser bookmarklet, allowing you to capture news content on the fly. Like on Pinterest you can create as many thematic boards as you like and easily add stuff to them with a click of your mouse. All content you pin on NewsPeg can also be easily shared on Facebook and Twitter.

My comment: Supereasy to use and adopt, provides a news curation format that provides more view and less depth than other competitors, and which can have its advantages in many vertical niches. Definitely a good practicing and experimental ground for anyone needing to get his feet wet with news curation.

P.S.: One small weakness I have run into with NewsPeg is that, news articles, often don't have much in terms of images or video, but NewsPeg, just like Pinterest, won't let you pin something that has no readily available visual content inside of it. I appreciate the value of visuals, but if I need to curate the news, is the tool that you should provide with some alternative solution for when I run into situations like these.

Free to use. »

This could be very useful for curating news around topics you're covering.

Comment envoyer du texte sur Pinterest ?

Comment envoyer du texte sur Pinterest ? | Social Media, etc. | Scoop.it

Ha! Je me disais bien qu’on pourrait envoyer un jour du texte sur pinterest. Enfin un texte transformé en image tout à fait lisible bien sûr. Jusqu’à maintenant j’utilise le formidable outil curate.us mais si on devient peu à peu accro a Pinterest (c’est mon cas, car j’ai l’esprit grégaire) il faut plutôt utiliser pinaquote.com qui permet de mettre en mémoire un passage d’une page de site web et de l’épingler sur Pinterest.
