How to use Scoop.it

How to use Scoop.it | What is Scoop.it? | Scoop.it

 

The first thing you do after signing up is add the Scoop.it button to your tool bar so you can easily add posts as you find them. I’ve installed the button on both Firefox.

When you find a post/article that you want to save and click on the Scoop.it button, a dashboard appears on the right side of the page presenting you with a number of cool options. From the pop-up dashboard you can choose which topic to add it to, change the title, image and intro copy and choose which if any of your social channels you also want to share this post on.

When you share the post on Twitter, Facebook another box opens so you can add a comment. Then, when it appears on your social media profile, the tiny url that is automatically created, directs readers to the story on your Scoop.it topic page. This is a great way to build followers and encourage sharing and, if you doing a great job of curating for a topic, you will see more followers and shares.

Hi, thanks for checking out my first Scoop'it!

Here is a way to upload PDFs to Scoopit.

There is an easier way, I believe, by uploading a PDF to Scribd.com or Docshare.com and then get the link from  there.

What do you think?
