The new Storify VIP for Wordpress plugin allows anyone having a Wordpress account to collect stories, images and video clips appearing on social media platforms and to integrate such content into their website news section and within their blog posts.

If you are not familiar with Storify, this is a news curation platform that allows you to easily find and re-post tweets, photos and video clips coming from Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, Instagram and other major social networks.

Appears to be quite a slick integratoon with Wordpress. However, the $3750 per month (min) will put a lot of people off - including me!

Curate Any Web Content With WordPress Default Plugin PressThis

Curate Any Web Content With WordPress Default Plugin PressThis | Content Curation World |

Robin Good: If you are looking for an easy and simple way to start curating content from other sources on the web, with the minimum of additional technology and expense, you may want to look into Wordpress default plugin PressThis.

PressThis is essentially a bookmarklet that can be dragged and dropped on your browser bookmarks bar and then used to capture the content of any web page you are on.

PressThis automatically captures the URL, title, and site name of the page you are on, while providing you inside an editable WordPress post, any original text you may have selected on the page.

Not only. PressThis has also two dedicated functions to capture also any image (along with the text) from any web page (you can choose the one you prefer from a scrollable viewer) as well as any video clip present.

PressThis is available inside any installed copy of WordPress inside the Tools menu.

Free to use for all WP users.

You're welcome. Thanks for the credit/ linkback. If you run the Link Library plugin (which doesn't come with WordPress) you can also run a bookmarklet which lets you add new links in this same, quick way. Not everyone does much with the blogroll or links now. But I still use mine. Link Library also lets you set up your links like a web directory. Though you do have a lot of background work to do for setting it up. It may not be for anyone who wants something fast and easy. But, it is a free plugin and you could just use it for adding links.
Laura Brown's comment, April 24, 2012 2:03 PM
I don't know if any of the tutorials mention this...

Once you have your PressThis loaded on your bookmark bar you can right click it and select Properties. Then change the name the button shows to anything you like. This is great if you have more than one blog you want to send content to. It helps to know which blog is which.

Thanks a lot Laura for tis additional info about Link Library and the tips on personalizing the PressThis bookmarklet.

Much appreciated indeed!
