Robin Good's insight:
BuzzSumo is a powerful web app which allows content curators to find trending top content highlighted by social media shares and key influencers on any subject you specify.
Content can be filtered by "type" (including articles, guest posts, infographics, videos and interviews) and by *time" with the ability to see just the last 24 hours, the past week, month or six months of data.
Influencers can be filtered by bloggers, journalists, influencers, companies and regular people.
An excellent tool for curators to find valuable new content and key contacts, influencers or prospective customers on any subject.
Free to use and test even without signing up.

Robin Good: ROCKZi is a new social news discovery and sharing service launched by the human curated search engine Blekko.
The service intelligently leverages the great work done by its own human curators to generate a thematic news board that is an hybrid between the experience of Pinterest and the one of Flipboard.
From GigaOM: "...taking a cue from from other popular curation sites, ROCKzi was built to bring curation to a wider set of users through low-touch, passive curation tools.
The site surfaces fresh content from news sources curated by power blekko users and displays articles in topic-specific, searchable “news boards,” from “Geekery” and “Glitterati” to “SportZ” and “Red State.”
As of now, there are 33 boards but, over the next few weeks and months, it plans to expand to hundreds and then thousands more."
N.B.: Not only you can browse and discover news through the existing boards, but if you scroll below them, you will find a search box that allows you to dive and find news on ANY topic you want.

Robin Good: If you have an iPad and you are looking for a better way to find, discover, browse, search and consume news stories, the new Rockmelt browser for iPads is definitely worth a road test.
Unlike other popular browsers, "rather than showing you a big, empty window--or just whatever site you were looking at the last time you used it--Rockmelt offers up a visual stream of personalized content, culled from friends on Facebook and Twitter, RSS subscriptions, and sites that fall into your designated categories of interest.
Posts, articles, images, and the rest take the form of big, tappable tiles in two endless columns--an infinitely scrolling stream of content.
Touch one of the items, and, when possible, it pops open in a stripped-down reader view.
As you’re checking out that content, you can jump to a full view of the website it’s hosted on, follow links, or just dip back to your stream to find something else to look at."
"Overall, it’s a fairly radical take on what a tablet browser should be, one that starts with the go-anywhere, find-anything utility of the browsers we’re familiar with and grafts a visual, content-curation element on top of it all.
In this sense, the new Rockmelt is sort of like a mash-up of Pulse, Flipboard, and Safari--a browser that’s also a news reader, with a dash of social network to round it out."
