Handpick is a great new service which allows you to curate a set of selected links to send out each day/week to your favorite groups of fans.
Though the use of a simple browser bookmarklet you can easily pick and save all of the most interesting resources and then have them sent out to your relevant subscribers.
How it works: "When you find a link you want to share, you click it, and it pops up a simple form for a title, link, description and a checklist of recipient groups you've created.
When you click 'share,' it doesn't buzz all your friends' phones right away. It collects links for you all day and sends an email digest to each group in the evening."
"Recipients of your Handpick links only get one message, and it arrives late in the day, when there's more time for thinking.
You create groups of contacts using whatever criteria you choose, and each group gets one message around 5 p.m. Pacific Time.
It has support for desktop and iPhone browser bookmarklets, a Chrome extension, and it can link with Instapaper."
