40 Social Media Curation Sites and Tools

40 Social Media Curation Sites and Tools | Socialmedia in schools |


"Curators sort through it, find the wheat in the chaff, and present it in a friendly manner” . I would agree with this definition however would also add that a curator would also share their perspective and perhaps alternative ( or supporting) viewpoint using the posts that they have selected.Why curate?

Curation provides another offering for your on-line audience. It also helps reduce the noise of the plethora of information on the internet. Cuation also provides a stream of fresh posts for your site or blog.

The whole article (link below) is worth the read - and this is certainly a 'future focus' area for information collection.  I use Scoopit and have seen a few Paperli pages - but the rest are new to me!

Thanks Everyone for this feedback. Just wonderful.

Robin- absolutely appreciated the feedback. I did visit all the sites to ensure that they were still in operation however missed some very important details. So thank you so much for providing the clarification needed. :))

Martin you need to do a little of what the article says - add your own perspective! I read the info and thought you had written it until I went to the link.

Hi Carey, I consider as a tool to provide interesting information and not really as a curation tool, but, maybe you're right and I should reconsider my opinion about my approach! Thank you for your feedback.

12 Essential Tips for Revitalising Your Blog in 2012

12 Essential Tips for Revitalising Your Blog in 2012 | Socialmedia in schools |

Guest post by Gregory Ciotti:  "As 2011 comes to a close, now is a better time than ever to evaluate your blog, its performance, and most importantly, what you can do to improve your blog in 2012!

A point I always like to drive home is that you will never find blogging success by turning into an “eternal student”, one who always consumes information but never creates or takes action.  So check the list, and make sure you go through and see what quick actions you can take to improve your blog!"


None of the suggested actions are really swift - except maybe to remove the clutter from your sidebar - and most of them are very focused on that (apparently) essential drive to get more 'traffic'.  I liked the idea of getting people to 'guest post' for you (not the other way with a view to link-backs) and interviewing someone - both of which need some leadin time.
