There are many ways you can find content to curate. Scoop.it’s mission is to help you find and publish the best content, whichever way works best for you.
You want to scan the relevant web to find content on a specific topic? You can leverage Research Content, our very own content engine.
Your colleague sends you an interesting article, or you’re reading this blogpost you saw in a newsletter? You can directly publish to your channels via our browser add-on.
What about the sources you want to monitor on a daily/weekly basis? That's precisely the goal of our Content Monitoring module.
Here's how you'll be able to make the most out of it:
Add your sources
To access the module, just click on Content>Monitoring.
First, you'll have to add the first sources you want to monitor. To do so, click on "Manage sources":
You will then be able to add a variety of sources: RSS feeds, Twitter users or lists, Facebook pages and Youtube channels. If you’re already using another feed aggregator, you can import all your sources at once via the “import OPML file” feature.
Organize them into groups
Organize all your different content sources the way you want by creating groups.
Once you created a group, just drag and drop your sources to organize them the way you want.
Create & apply advanced filters
Once you've added and organized your sources, you can go back to the main screen.
Here, you'll be able to visualize content from all sources, zoom on a particular group or even focus on a single feed.
Sometimes, all the pieces of content from your sources won’t be relevant, especially if you're following large media companies. That’s why we created advanced filtering options. Create custom filters with boolean operators and apply them to any of your content streams!
Distribute content efficiently
Of course, you should keep in mind the main objective of your content monitoring activities: distribution. In one click, you’ll be able to publish the pieces of content you selected to various channels: to your blog & content hubs via "Scoop.it" or to your social networks via "Share".
Note that if you're following Twitter users, you'll be able to use the URL of the tweet itself or the URL of the actual piece of content mentioned in the tweet (if any).
