If you're trying to establish yourself as a expert in your field, Scoop.it is a wonderful platform to do this. First ask yourself: Who is my target audience? What am I trying to achieve by using content curation? How will my audience benefit from the information I compile? What is the ease in getting started? How does the platform help me find my topics? How well does the platform help me share?

If someone wants to share content with others about a specific topic, the Scoop.it site makes that very easy. It is also easy to build a network of users who share your interests.

Scoop.it does have collaboration features so you can have more than one admin add content to a topic, but there is no platform for collaboration or drafting of content. It is easy to try out the free version and get a good idea of what the application does, and then add on features from there.

Scoop.it has the ability for nearly anyone to benefit from using it. Topics are not limited and the ability to share content across multiple sources allows for an integrated source of trusted content. It is believed that a tool like this would be best suited for "start-ups" and the liking but I believe that this has the making for improving the thought catalogs of many different types of businesses and industries.

We use Scoop.it to help us sift through the thousands of education-related articles that circulate on the internet every day. It helps us keep a better pulse on what our members, advocates and followers care about. Scoop.it makes sharing and re-sharing on our social platforms extremely easy. Some of our most retweeted and most shared items are from articles we found on Scoop.it
  • Narrows the amount of articles to sift through every day
  • Makes sharing good content simple
  • Keeps track of analytics
  • It's easy to overuse scoop.it, it's so easy to share, you might not initially realize just how often you are sharing posts.
We use Scoop.it every day. Again, Scoop.it makes sharing and re-sharing on our social platforms extremely easy. Some of our most retweeted and most shared items are from articles we found on Scoop.it
How easy is it to set up filters to narrow content choices? How easy is it to find people with similar content? How do you cultivate good followers and overall content? What are the best practices for using Scoop.it for my specific industry?

Scoop.it Content Director Review: "Go from dry data to artistic ease with Scoop.it!"

Score 10 out of 10
Vetted Review

Review Source
We use Scoop.it as a magnifying glass to highlight something we want to put emphasis on in our publicity or education. For example, we teach a therapy called chelation, so we have a Scoop.it describing what that therapy is, and we can update it regularly. We create a Scoop.it for each city that we hold a conference in, including hotel and airport information with specific links, and fun highlights of what to do while you're there.
  • Graphics are Scoop.it's strength. Scoop.it sites look great on social media; they invite people in to a much larger room of information, and engage them with color and well-placed articles. We love the design and it is very easy to share.
  • We like the fact that we can add a few comments of our own as well as recommend other sources. This keeps the information personal.
  • For important topics, one facebook post or one article illustration just isn't enough. Scoop.it allows us to cluster information that is obviously tied together but gives a variety of perspectives on a topic.
  • We wish we could have control over the font
  • We don't find the suggested articles page helpful- most of the time the articles aren't useful to us
It is important to have one unified theme when making a Scoop.it site.
It is a great tool when you know that information will need to be added or changed over time. You can have a consistent site, but change the articles as much as you want.
