- Great post byand, as I shared with I've seen this thread other places too so an excellent chance to have an important discussion. Thanks Jesse. MartyMay 7, 2013
- So is it similar to Storify?May 7, 2013
- No, Kia I like Storify for pasting together blog-like stories. When I use Storify I tell more stories. When I use I curate content and I curate feeds into a coherent self sustaining "daily".
Best way to get a sense of the difference is to look at how differently I use all three:
Scoop.it Revolutions are here: http://www.scoop.it/u/martin-marty-smith
Here was my first Scoop.it "magazine" Curation Revolution:http://www.scoop.it/t/curation-revolution
Newest to Storify so haven't gotten my mind around its UI yet, but it beckons a diary-like storytelling format supplemented with strong visuals and links kind of like a Delicious on steroids.
Hope these examples help. All GREAT tools with real curation and creation power. MartyMay 7, 2013
- It's great to have this understanding of the both, thanksand and of course !May 7, 2013
- I like them both for very different reasons. I love that paper.li lets me create or collect pages on specific topics. On the topic of collecting, I prefer Scoop.it because of the tagging system which allows me to organize the links that I collect. Due to this feature I have been able to quickly review resources before surprise presentations, and I have been able to share 'mini-scoop.it' pages by sharing all of the links that I have collected and tagged on 'topic x'. So to answer the original question: For me, the reason why Scoop.it adds more value than Paper.li is longevity due to tagging. I have used Scoop.it since March of 2011. I have used paper.li for about six months more than that. I have never gone back to view an old paper.li publication. I have never gone a week without going back to previous scoops on Scoop.it. That is the primary reason why I prefer Scoop.it. The second reason is that the 'insights' feature allows me to read why other people chose to share a specific link. It helps direct my attention to certain parts of a link or video. Paper.li does not offer that advantage for me.
