So we have started looking at scoop.it! this week and to be honest I had never heard of it before starting this social media class.
In some ways it reminds me of the flipboard app, combining lots of stories and articles and pictures and resources on different topics in one place. It seems pretty handy for keeping up with industry news, but I get the feeling that it is more for contributing original content rather than sharing other people's content.
As such I am not sure that we will be able to get the most out of it, though I can see how it would be useful for businesses and other institutions who already generate interesting articles.
Perhaps I will 'scoop' some of my blog posts - at least then it will be original and fit in to the whole scoop.it! idea.
