Scoop.it Content Curation, Unchained

Spread the love

We’ve been thinking here at Scoop.it about the mobile and social revolutions and how we can help make the curation process a seamless part of your day. We think that the most interesting reading and content consumption happens during the “in between” moments these days — on the bus, during breakfast, etc — instead of during typical 9 to 5 hours, which has been the case historically. Instapaper recently released a study of reading data collected for over 100 million articles, which shows the majority of mobile content being consumed has actually shifted to between 6 pm and 9 pm. They also released data showing that there are very specific spikes in content consumption specifically via iPhone:

  • 6am – Early morning, breakfast
  • 9am – The morning commute, start of the work day
  • 5pm – 6pm – End of the work day and the commute home
  • 8pm – 10pm – Couch time, prime time, bed time

Based on compelling data like this and feedback from our community, we believe that the future of curation is mobile. We’ve made some awesome changes to the iPhone app to make your job as curator easier and your mobile curation more effective. It shouldn’t be a chore to feed your social channels interesting content while you’re on the move, and we are working to unchain your curation experience and make it even more effortlessly flexible and mobile.

These changes include:

Followed Scoops View: See your favorite content from all the scoops you follow in an easy-to-read, flickable format.

Profile View: See your Scoop.it profile page and page views from your mobile device. Track your growth in real-time!

Mobile Insight: Enrich the content you are scooping with your own unique perspective from anywhere. Add your own comments to your scoop and share it to your social networks all from your iPhone.

For those of you with an iPhone, go download the new-and-improved Scoop.it app! For those of you have already downloaded it, update! The changes are pretty awesome and we’re looking forward to hearing your feedback to make it even better.

Am I the only one who thinks the mobile device of choice will be a tablet vs. the Droid or even the iPhone devices? Us guys with glasses over 40 don’t like itty bitty fonts

Great news 🙂 Though I still prefer the comfort of curating on laptop; one reason for this is the ability to choose what I want to include rather than only use the suggestions which pop up. Nevertheless, kudos to Scoop.iT for all its improvements!

Thanks Ana! There are a couple of ways you can add content which are not in the suggestions from your iPhone: one is to install the bookmarklet (instructions by visiting http://www.scoop.it/bookmarkletInfo from your iPhone/iPad/Android); another one is to copy the link and paste it on your topic (you can then edit the link’s content and add your insight with the full comfort of the native App). Laptop will always be more comfortable but don’t hesitate to try these out!

Thank you Guillaume, I will; it’s practical when travelling and one still does a scoop or two 🙂 Thank you again!
