It all started with one scoop: Introducing Global Comments and New Scoop Layout

Screen Shot 2012-09-26 at 7.02.05 PM

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).

Insights Into the Hot Trend of Social Media Content Curation

In the guest post published by Jeff Bullas‘ blog, Intervistato.com’s Maria Petrescu interviews Scoop.it’s co-founder Marc Rougier after giving her own insights on why curation is a much needed trend.

Online content curation is a hot trend as business owners and professionals realize that content is vital to add value to their customers and prospects. The trend was already evident in 2011 but 2012 saw an outright explosion of the phenomenon. Also important is delivering and sharing that content on your social media networks.” she writes.

She comes back with Marc on the background behind Scoop.it: “The founders were literally in love with social media, but had no time to produce content. They had already been working on another platform, where they published content organized in topics. People loved it, but after a while they felt the growing need of getting content that was more specific, based on their single interests.

Plus other interesting insights and a video of the interview. Check it out!
