Today the Internet is going into a big battle to protect its historical model based on freedom, sharing and innovation. In protest against SOPA/PIPA, Wikipedia, Reddit and other sites will go dark for 24 hours. A lot has already been said already on this as you can see by searching SOPA on Scoop.it or by following some of the topics focused on this such as http://www.scoop.it/t/stop-sopa.
Our first offer, Scoop.it Business, was designed for small & mid-size companies willing to leverage curation to develop their brands and their audience on social media. Hence the focus on branding, domain hosting on top of other premium features. However we realized that “one size does not fit all curators”!
You know we are very attentive to your feedback and needs. Scoop.it is your publishing platform that we love to imagine as the best place to be heard and drive your social media activities. We are thankful to all of you for your commitment to Scoop.it and the great and numerous ideas you submit daily to our team. One underlying theme found in all of your feedback was clear : you needed a version between the Free and the Business versions, targeting individuals who are very active on social media.Read More
As we launch Scoop.it on the iPhone today, we wanted to come back on what publishing had meant on mobile so far: photos, short videos, tweets and short-form content but not much publishing activity involving long form and richer content. Curation is an opportunity to change that. Here’s why.Read More
Just a little more than 2 weeks ago, we had our big launch at Scoop.it: opening up the free version to all and at the same time, introducing Scoop.it Business, a premium version of Scoop.it for companies. This was of course a big milestone for us, after a very successful beta that helped us build […]Read More
Today, we launch Scoop.it publicly, which means our private beta was a success with strong traffic and continuous growth. But it’s been a hectic ride so on top of showing the video which we had fun doing to explain our vision, I also felt like sharing a story, our story, of how it all started.Read More
Expressing yourself, sharing your passions and using curation to build the legitimacy of your expertise are strong pillars of the Scoop.it vision. They are the foundation of this strong idea that the time of curators is coming.
Each time we work on improving the experience of our community, we always keep in mind this constant aim: to augment your visibility as a talented curator.Read More
“Quality is not an act, it’s a habit.” -Aristotle said.
What makes your topic more relevant than any filter or aggregator? Your insights, your point of view, your editorial choice. In short, your personal engagement in the content you curate.Read More
Some have opposed content creation and curation but new study by Argyle Social finds out the sweet spot is mixing both. Interesting quantitative validation for our vision to enable “Scoop.it everywhere” back a few months ago.
Since the beginning of the Scoop.it adventure, we have envisioned our platform as a new way to share and to be heard on the web in the Age of Information Abundance. We are thrilled by the intelligent content you have collectively built.
Scoop.it does not simply contain absolute knowledge. It is a place where different viewpoints and opinions collide, where mutual expertise shapes information, where the power of collaboration gives you a picture drawn by humans.Read More

In just a few months, Scoop.it has known great success as a stand-alone platform by making curation a simple and new form of expression on the Web.

The Scoop.it team attended the leading tech european event last week, Leweb. As we’re in private beta, our objective was to get as much feedback as possible and meet key people from the tech industry. Goal 100% achieved, and even more as we got “as a bonus” a few interviews. Each time it’s Guillaume Decugis who speaks, the CEO of Goojet, the company behind Scoop.it
The first one for Capecalm, a Web-TV about startups, entrepreneurship and innovation.
And then, a few others with French medias:
The day before Leweb, we had the visit of Frenchweb for an interviewRead More
YES Scoop.it is topic-centric, but BUT we can’t forget that it’s first of all a social media.
The main difference with the others social media is essential: Scoop.it lets users follow topics, not people. Scoop.it brings you content on topics you’ve decided to follow, shared by other people on these topics. People we meet are users who are willing to discuss about the same subjects. What gather people together are their passions! We don’t always share our passions with our friends: especially if they are unusual. Your interest about the Chinese culture may not be shared with your best friend!Read More
Following your feedbacks, we’re glad to announce some new features on Scoop.it Beta.
- New design: we want your topics to look great so we’ve improved their looks with a magazine/media-like design. Tell us whether you like them!
- Background customization is now available! You can now choose a color or an image that represents your topic like no other one! Don’t hesitate to give us your feedback about it: firstname.lastname@example.org!
Discover Scoop.it with this new video and Don’t hesitate to Share it !
- First, when you create your own topic, you set up content sources related to it. These sources could be Twitter, Flickr, Youtube, Digg, Google… But be selective: you won’t make your life easier by piling up dozens of so-so sources! Read More
For a couple of weeks, Scoop.it started its private beta and try to better its users’ experience by releasing regularly new versions to add new features coming from the valuable feedback of the first users. Today, we’re glad to announce some nice new features:

If somebody asks you the question, « what’s your favorite topic? » you’ll have no problem to tell him your #1 topic. But when you’ll start your Scoop.it it topic, maybe you’ll have more difficulties to find an original one, with a bit of eccentricity…
Welcome to the Scoop.it blog ! Scoop.it was just officially born a few days ago and though it’s just the beginning, we’re very happy with the result. We hope you like it too.
We created Scoop.it because we felt social media needed much better curation tools than the ones which exist today.
What do we mean by that ?Read More
Who has never been a bit envious of these bloggers: they always have something to say, they have inspiration every day, they have an idea about everything…
But the truth is: most people don’t have time for that, it’s complex… and we don’t have a fantastic subject in mind from Monday to Tuesday.
Why is a topic with Scoop.it different to a blog?Read More
