Scoop.it’s first mission is to help people publish gorgeous magazines by means of curation – and by doing so, make their passion and expertise be heard and recognized on the web. We endeavor to offer the easiest and most powerful solution to help curators find great content, edit it in engaging magazines, and share it to their Social Media. The rapidly growing community of curators on Scoop.it tells us we are on the right track; we feel this is a valuable mission!
Now, curators and visitors are asking: what about discovering content and curators in Scoop.it too?
More and more curators find inspiration from other curators’ publications; more and more visitors want to dig deeper and access more content related to their interests. We thought we needed to address it better: helping people publish but also helping people discover great curators and curations. More discovery and exchange will make our community and our experience richer!
