Content Curation Tools: 21 Criteria To Select And Evaluate Your Ideal One

Content Curation Tools: 21 Criteria To Select And Evaluate Your Ideal One | Social Media, etc. | Scoop.it


« Nonetheless we are just at the beginning of a new era, in which content curation will be as important as search, there is already an apparent abundance of content curation tools of all kinds.


To the superficial eye, many such curation tools also appear to be very similar to one another, especially if evaluated exclusively from the type of news streams or visual collections that can be produced with them. »

Preservation: Make a Permanent Archive Copy of Any Webpage with Mummify.it

Preservation: Make a Permanent Archive Copy of Any Webpage with Mummify.it | Social Media, etc. | Scoop.it


« After Permamarks and Perma.cc have made their recent debut, there is a new free web service offering the ability to store, preserve and index any web page.  



Mummify.it it's very simple to use. You can either paste the URL of a web page that you want to be preserved or you can install the Mummify bookmarklet and click on it anytime you are on a web page that you want to archive forever "as is".  



Mummify creates a "permanent", in the cloud, non-movable and supposedly non-changeable link to the archived version of your selected page. (I say supposedly because of course no-one can really guarantee for the future of this company yet.)  



From then on you can share directly the mummified URL (or a shortened version of it), as, until the "original" is live and accessible online, it will point directly to it. Only if the "original" goes down, the mummified URL will re-direct automatically to the "preserved" copy.



A free version allows you to archive up to 10 pages per month. The $10/mo plan allows for 25 and the $15/mo plan provides also analytics and alerts for when the "original" of any archived page goes down. 



My comment: Mummify represents an unstoppable and useful trend inherited by curation disciplines that have a much longer history than "content curation": preservation. Mummify.it, like its two predecessors is a useful tool, that will become even more appreciated when fully integrated (as Buffer does) into any professional content curation tool. 


Free for most. » (©® Robin Good)

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.

Stephen Dale's curator insight, October 15, 2013 7:30 AM

A useful addition to the digital curator's toolkit.

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.

Naissance de la Communauté des French Scoopiters sur Google+

Naissance de la Communauté des French Scoopiters sur Google+ | Social Media, etc. | Scoop.it

Avec l'aval de la direction de Scoop.it (à posteriori !), la communauté des French Scoopiters est ouverte. Contrairement à la communauté Scoopiter francophones ( http://bit.ly/YKgnAB ) qui a pour but de faire évoluer le produit, cette nouvelle communauté est un lieu d'entraide pour faire part de vos problèmes.

 
Le but n'est pas d'attirer les aigris et spammeurs, mais de profiter du format pour trouver une réponse rapide à des problèmes d'usage quotidien qui alourdissent le travail de des techniciens. On préfère qu'ils consacrent leur temps à améliorer notre plateforme préférée de curation.



N'hésitez pas à rescoopez ce post !

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. »

Se puede utilizar para crear un "periódico escolar".

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

The Curated Google Search Result Page: The Mega-SERP

The Curated Google Search Result Page: The Mega-SERP | Social Media, etc. | Scoop.it

« Robin Good's insight:

A good example of how you can provide a lot more insight to others by painstakingly curating a specific topic by collecting, organizing and juxtaposing effectively all of the relevant pieces. 


Dr.Pete. also known as Peter J. Myers has curated an insightful visual montage that showcases all of Google search engine result page features in one page. 


The result is a pretty amazing view, that, at least in my view, would be much more welcome than the existing results. Much more so, if it was me, the user searching, being able to decide which one of these features to turn on or off depending on my needs.


The time has come for me and you to decide how we want to slice, view and rank search results and this wonderful user-generated montage points to how much more could be seen if it was me or you to decide what to display inside your SERPs.

Thank you for sharing.

This could be really useful for documenting successful SEO or for setting benchmarks.
