Have you ever felt frustrated by the fact you never seem to know what happens to your content on social media? We share, we tweet and then… not much. Content is short lived and real-time is sometimes too fast: we don’t know who saw it, who reacted to it, who was influenced by it.
That’s been one of our frustration and we’re very happy to frequently hear that Scoop.it is a way to slow down real-time and give great content a longer chance to be discovered. Through the Scoop.it curation layer, not only can your readers see the related content you curated on that same topic but they can also discover it through search, something that doesn’t happen with social content.
So today, we’re happy to take a step further in making you see what happened to your curated content. With the release we’ve launched earlier today, we’ve unified all reactions to a Scoop in a unique thread. Everyone who directly or indirectly – through multiple rescoops – reacted to your great scoop will be on that thread and you’ll see them appear below your post (by expanding the thread if needed).
So one of the feedback we’ve paid a lot of attention to is the one we hear frequently that it could be easier to identify the great curators behind the content. When we introduced the visual dashboard last July, one of the cool things you told us you liked was that it improved dramatically the ability to spot curators on a given topic.
Today, we’re also taking this a step further by introducing a new layout for Scoops to better highlight the curators. You now come at the top while the source and time logically precedes the text zone. You, our users are doing a fantastic job and we want this to show!
