Bring Curation to your Facebook Timeline

When you’re passionate about something, can the Facebook timeline be a good representation of your digital self? Its design and features certainly hint so but at Scoop.it, we felt it would only work if you could find a way to smoothly mix your interests to what’s originally a friends & family network.

Show what you care about!

We are glad to now announce our new Facebook Timeline integration! By turning it on (it’s optional of course), your Facebook Timeline will be automatically updated in real time whenever you curate new content.

Show your friends what you really care about, share your passions and expertise in a frictionless and natural way. This could even give rise to new passions on Star Wars or Freeride Skiing amongst your friends!

As they pile up, these scoops will be grouped on a dedicated box that nicely displays a summarized snapshot of your latest curation activity:

It’s simple. It’s seamless. It’s visual.

Facebook Timeline = more visibility, more engagement

This is great news to boost your topics’ visibility. Your topic will gain visibility on Facebook on both Facebook Timeline and in your friends’ Facebook ticker. Curating regularly will ensure a constant visibility to your topics and boost your traffic as well as your audience engagement! Integration with Facebook Timeline is steroid for your curation.

What to do?

If you’ve already connected your Facebook account, you just need to reconnect it to update your connection settings and have your scoops shared to your Facebook Timeline. While connecting to your Scoop.it account, a pop-up will appear asking you to connect again your Facebook account:

For those of you who haven’t connected your Facebook yet, go on your Scoop.it account and do it today! To do so, just click on the Facebook icon on your dashboard:

Please note that this is an option offered for you to boost the impact of your curation; you can connect or disconnect it at will through your account settings (Account > Sharing Options > Uncheck “Share your scoops to your Facebook Timeline”).

[Update] Further to your many questions, please note that Facebook does not support Timeline Apps for Fan pages. We will of course keep you posted if this evolves in the future!

Enjoy!

    Would need to know how this will work with using a Facebook Page vs. the personal timeline and also want to see how the linking works out.  Does the link to scoop.it go to our own curated scoop.it page or to scoop.it main page?

    Hi Scoop.it Team,

    Unfortunately, it’s not possible to use this feature for a fan page…
    Too bad, since I use Scoop.it in a professional context.
    Would this feature be available any soon ?

    Agreed, this really isn’t valuable to me unless I can use it with Facebook Pages. My personal friends don’t care about what I do professionally but this tool would be awesome to have on all the pages I manage for clients. Also, I think people would prefer if the link goes to the source article, not to anything on scoop.it.

    Just to add my voice to those wanting a connection with a Facebook Page – much more useful to me that way. Thanks.

    Great tool; it was so easy to connect to my business Page.  I had multiple choices of all my Pages and chose the one most appropriate for Scoop.it.

    Would like this feature more if it worked with Fan pages as we use it in a professional setting as well.  Add another vote of support for completing that feature as soon as possible.

      You can select your business Page now.

        No, not seeing that option.  The app wants to do it’s thing on all pages, and doesn’t seem to be allowing me to choose which page or pages.

    Hi Mike (Macey),  I think there may be some confusion here,  Scooping items to a Facebook Page is easy.  What people including me are looking for is how to activate the timeline option that is now available on Facebook Prfofiles but does not appear to be available for Facebook Page timelines.

    Decent feature, except for many of us use Fan pages in
    a professional way.  So fro that perspective this was kinda disappointing to be honest.  Hopefully, you will find a way to add the curation to Fan pages too very soon, as I do this with other apps currently.

    Great Article, Thanks for sharing. There was and still is a lot of mixed feedback on the new Facebook timeline integration. Personally I love it, it just adds more customization and branding options for your page! You can’t say your page looked better without a nice cover photo with your brand on there !

    However, it looks good on my timeline too :)

  • Philip Gardner

    My Scoop It account is currently connected to my personal fan page. However, I want to change it to my business page but, when I try to disconnect and then reconnect, there is not option for connecting to my business page on Facebook. I am automatically re-connected to my personal fan page. My question — How do I get connected to my business fan page?

    • scoopit

      Hi! Can you clarify whether you’ve disconnected your Facebook account or the page connection? To be specific, you should go to Settings > Sharing Options > Other Social Media and disconnect the existing page connection. Then click on connect again to see a list of all the pages you’re an admin of on Facebook. Note that you need to be an admin of the page on Facebook to see it so make sure you have that level of rights on Facebook. If you’re still having problem, send us a support ticket at http://feedback.scoop.it to make sure we don’t miss it. Thanks!

      • Philip Gardner

        For some reason, I do not get a list of of the pages I am an admin of after I connect again.
