Scoop.it has been in private beta for sometimes now, and yesterday the service launched new features including the ability to share their scoop.it posts on Facebook pages, LinkedIn, WordPress blogs, Tumblr; Facebook accounts and Twitter were already available.
This web-based content curation service enables users to create topics from their profile page and then automatically get keyword filtered feeds from Twitter, Google, Digg, Youtube and to select RSS feeds from various sources on the Internet. They can then review the suggested content displayed on their topics and select the articles they prefer to be displayed on each topic page, or by adding the scoop.it button directly in their browser, select relevant articles while browsing the web and post them in the corresponding topic in their scoop.it blogs. The application allows users to add their personal opinion to any article before re-publishing it on their scoop.it blog.
I really enjoy using Scoop.it and recently I found relevant articles curated by Scoop.it users.
If you would like to try it, Scoop.it offered 100 invites for our readers, click here to register.
Additional new features include:
- Integration with Seesmic account
