I Just Had To Get The Scoop!

Scoop.it – Have You Got The Scoop?

If you knew me well you know I had to just check out the Scoop – Scoop.it – recommended by Ms. Ileane. I could not resist trying out another new thing online! Thanks Ms. Ileane!

I immediately really liked this website, you only log in the first time through your Twitter or Facebook – no complicated sign in with passwords. You do need to log in future times via email and password that you easily set up there.

There were many topics to follow and one that really excited me was Flash. I have been trying to learn Adobe Flash and I didn’t realize Scoop.it would have so many topics – not just blogging and social media but a wide variety of topics.

You can pick up to 5 topics to scoop and follow on the FREE version.  There is a pro version for $12.99 per month and a business version for $79 per month.

The FREE version allows you to have 5 topics and you can:

1) Curate from suggestion engine.
2)Then, curate from user’s suggestions.
3) Curate from bookmarklet – You share scoops from any website!
4) Discover and follow other curations.
5) Re-Scoop content.
6) Share to Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Google+, Tumbler and WordPress.

If you choose to go with the PRO version you get these additional features including 10 topics:

1) Scoop it analytics.
2) Google analytics.
3) Export to WordPress, Tumbler, or via RSS.
4) Assign different social media accounts per topic.

So What is a Content Curator?

A curator is a subject specialist, where he or she conducts original research on objects and guides the organization in it’s collecting of these objects. You can find me curating there on Scoop-it here.

My 5 topics that I am curating are:
1) Inspiring Social Media
2) The Joy of Blogging
3) Healthy Informant
4) SEO Tips to Improve Your Website or Blog
5) Weather Today

So Why Scoop.it ?

It lets you find more blogs and websites to visit and follow. You also find more people on Twitter with your interests. There is something called a manage sources – where you can find topics on Twitter and it takes you right there to see who is tweeting on those topics. Very nice feature!

And probably most important to all of you, is that You can be found through Scoop.it too.

So will you start scooping it up today?

  • I was one of the late starters of scoop.it because I started using it by end of year 2012 and despite searching over the web I missed out this great source of content curation. Maybe due to the reason that I was always searching for backlinks, SEO but never searched particularly for content curation. However, it was sudden and a great discovery..

    • It’s never too Late Hannah, I’m always finding some cool things over there. Thanks for coming by and for your input. Have a wonderful holiday!

  • Samantha, I really love this site Scoopit now – Great for finding more blogs and sources of information.

  • I've been thinking about Scoop.It. I've known about it for a little while, but am struggling with that "can you be just one more place online" question you posed several days ago.

    I just don't know if I can take it, Lisa! I like Scoop.It WAY better than Paper.li. It's more powerful and looks better too. So, I suppose I could quit Paper.li and go with the Scoop (journalists love getting the scoop, after all).

  • Sounds like a great site! Your topics sound interesting. I could use some SEO tips. I have no idea how to do anything with that.

  • Thanks for sharing about scoop.it! This will help us more in promoting our blog! Very interesting! 🙂 thank you! 🙂

  • Thanks Ileane for coming by. Your STEM category sounds very interesting, I'll have to check it out. Thanks again for recommending Scoop.it

  • Hi Lisa! Thanks for the shout out. I'm so glad you're enjoying Scoop.it and spreading the word about it.
    Your topic on weather should be really amazing!
    My topics are YouTube Tutorials, Podcasting, Blogging contests, STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) and of course – Basic Blog Tips!
