How It Works: Login to https://www.scoop.it/ and use the following instructions:
Choosing Your Scoop.it Topic
The very first step is choosing your Scoop.it topic. If you’re using the platform as an extended branding or authority building strategy, you can’t just grab any old topic and throw it up there. It has to:
- Be something you’re passionate about (the more passionate you are, the more likely you’ll be to stay on top of the curation process, as well as be careful with what you’re sharing).
- Be something related to your business (if you’re a plumber and curating a topic such as door knobs, you can become a perceived authority in doorknobs… but what good does that do your plumbing business?).
- Be something that interests others (otherwise, it’s just a museum that no one visits. Ever.)
Using Relative Keywords to Pull Content: When you read an interesting link from Twitter, you have the option to retweet it. With Scoop.it, there are several ways to grab related content:
Bookmarklet for Casual Curation: When you read an article you think would do well for your Scoop.it topic, click the Scoop.it bookmarklet, enter the information you want and publish. This is a handy feature to have when you’re reading or researching about your favorite topics.
Suggestion Engine for Sifting Through Content: Sometimes you don’t have time to search for content to curate. Scoop.it’s suggestion engine provides you with a list of suggested sites based on the keywords you enter. When you’re ready to add more content to your Scoop.it, simply scroll down the list of RSS feeds.
Adding Your Own Sources for Reliable Content: Everybody has their favorite reads and twitter users or lists to follow. Scoop.it allows you to add your own sources, making it easier to find good content – not quite so much crud to weed through. RSS feeds, Twitter users, Twitter lists, Twitter searches, a Facebook page, and Google News, Blogs, or Video search: these options give you a variety of ways to include your favorite sources in your “suggested sources” box.
