Looking for Content Curation Tools? Here's Where To Start: The Official Content Curation Tools Universe Map

Looking for Content Curation Tools? Here's Where To Start: The Official Content Curation Tools Universe Map | Way Cool Tools | Scoop.it

Robin Good: Everytime I see a new post or article claiming to list the best content curation tools I know I am in for some disappointment.

 

Most of these lists just pick up names from other lists without even bothering to check, test or verify what these tools actually do, whether they are still available. Unfortunately the rush to put out "curated" list of tools and services has created more misinformation than useful lists. 

 

But if you, like me, are on the lookout for new and effective tools to curate your own content or the one of your customers, I have created a comprehensive map of all the curation tools available online and I keep it fresh and updated almost on a daily basis.

 

The map presently lists over 250 content curation tools which you can navigate much more easily than it was possible on my earlier versions of this map.

 

On the right side of the map you will find all of the news and content curation tools available online today. On the left side, you can find bookmarking, link lists builders, clippers and lots of tools to operate with RSS feeds (which are still at the heart of a curator's job).

Full map: http://bit.ly/ContentCurationUniverse  

Share it.

How to hack an RSS feed from a Twitter hashtag

"If you moderate or participate in tweet chats, you know how frantic they can be. In a lively discussion, you can get a constant firehose of tweets pouring at you over the course of the chat, often an hour or so.

Capturing the full flood of Twitter chat is no easy task. There are workarounds (eg, copy tweets and paste periodically into a text editor, or use Storify) yet most if not all are pretty manually intensive.

As a continuing advocate and lover of RSS feeds, it’s great to learn of a simple and easy way to use RSS to automatically capture all tweets in a chat, and in a way that gives you the rich wholeness of a tweet: links to content and to the tweeter’s profile.

Here’s the how-to:"
