"Facebook has just begun testing “Collections” — a new feature it says is “unrelated” to Pinterest but could be a competitor. It allows retailers to add “Want” or “Collect” buttons to news feed posts about products. These save and share products to a “Wishlist” on user profiles that host a “Buy” button that can be clicked through to make purchases offsite.
Seven retail partners can now share Collections posts to their fans.
Collections could help retailers score viral click-throughs to their product pages by making things their fans are interested in more discoverable to friends. Facebook isn’t earning affiliate fees on Collections click throughs, but it could get brands to buy ads to get more fans.
The “Want” button adds a product to a Timeline section called “Wishlist” visible to friends of friends, the “Collect” button saves to to a Collection called “Products” that’s visible to friends only, and a special version of the “Like” button will also add to “Products” but that’s visible to friends of friends.

How does content go viral today? Well, it has to be shared and while we cannot expect every piece of content we create to go viral, we can work to give it the best chance of being shared as much as possible.
If you’re wondering why people aren’t sharing your content, take a look at the reasons below and see if any of them apply to you.
Excerpted from this interesting article on Outspoken Media:
"The facts are:
***Content curation is a needed skill that will only grow in importance as more big brands and publishers flood the Internet with all kinds of content. ***Curation can be a fun, rewarding and highly effective part of your online marketing mix. ***Curating content requires skill, tenacity and, above all, an unflinching focus on the needs of your audience.
The biggest temptation all search marketers face is to sell our souls to the Borg and AUTOMATE EVERYTHING.
An effective curation strategy requires a healthy variety of sources. If you expect any one tool to do all of the work for you, you’re going to miss a lot of remarkable content.
So, use a fancy tool as one of your filters, if you wish. But don’t fool yourself into believing you can just put it on autopilot and watch it magically send you everything you need to succeed.
If your goal is to curate content that provides true value for your audience, you’ve got to out-hustle all of the namby-pamby posers in your niche who claim to be curating, however half-heartedly.
Here is a collection of solid strategies and tasty tactics that will help you consistently out-curate your competitors.
1) Create Twitter lists of experts and thought leaders in your niche.
2) Save Twitter searches for relevant keywords. 3) Build customized MyAllTop pages to keep up on industry blogs. 4) Set up Google Alerts for targeted keywords. 5) Subscribe to blogs by RSS and view them in Google Reader. 6) Create topical lists on Facebook. 7) Perform keyword searches in Trackur. 8) Explore Regator’s curated blog directory. 9) Hunt down content by category on StumbleUpon. 10) Find applicable articles and experts with Topsy. 11) Join relevant LinkedIn groups. 12) Search Scribd’s documents database. 13) Dig into the bookmarked items on Delicious. 14) Keep an eye on curated niche sites that serve your audience, like Inbound.org. 15) Scour the Web with Snip.it and Scoop.it. 16) Drop your keywords into Bottlenose. 17) Scan the curated lists on List.ly. 18) Sign up for a personalized email digest from YourVersion. 19) Say hello to your little friend: Social Buzz. 20) Swing by Ice Rocket and ROCKZi once in awhile. 21) Ignore Google+ at your own risk. I dare you. #smooches.
Constantly Refine and Refocus Your Curation Strategy:
I like to cram tons of different sources into my content funnel at the beginning of each new curation project. Then, once I’m convinced I’ve cast my net wide enough, I begin the crucial process of whittling down those sources into a much more manageable list.
Be the Pickiest, Little Curator Allowed by Law:
If you’re going to out-curate your competition, every piece of content you serve to your audience has to be exactly the right piece of content.
Robin Good: eBay has gone the Pinterest way by redesigning its web interface and allowing you to curate your preferred product categories as well as more specific parameters like the price range you are interested in, whether you want new or used items or prefer auctions to "buy-now" offerings.
"Everything now centers on a Pinterest-like feed of featured, personalized, and self-curated products."
WebProNews reports: eBay says that the feed will show users “a collection of items selected for you, based on your shopping history or your own personal interests.” When a logged-in user first accesses the feed, they are given the opportunity to “follow” certain types of product lines as well as connect their feed to their Facebook interests.
eBay officially announced: “Today we begin to introduce a series of significant new features and enhancements for our customers. We’re delivering a cleaner, contemporary look and feel; a more intuitive, convenient way to browse, decide and buy – both globally and locally; and a new personal way to curate your own shopping experience and discover items perfect for you...”
To test the new eBay curated feed, interface redesign and new logo, head to eBay.com (US version) and you will be immediately offered to select five product categories you are interested in.
The new eBay also allows users to integrate their Facebook account as well as their PayPal one to make it easier and faster to sell and buy on the popular online marketplace.
