Robin Good's insight:
Out of total serendipity I noticed this morning an <embed> button now available below every single story curated on Scoop.it. The link, labelled "Embed this Scoop" provides a code snippet which can be copied and pasted into any web site or blog, much like what you can do Storify.
The feature should is available to all Scoop.it users.
Try it out now by clicking the "Share" button below any scoop and you will see this: https://dl-web.dropbox.com/spa/782adzfe036gp2y/l-v3szom.png
Robin Good: JISC provides a very well documented guide to the use of Creative Commons licences (also referred to as CC licences) which can greatly facilitate the copying, reuse, distribution, and in some cases, the modification of the original owner’s creative work without needing to get permission each time from the original rights holder.
In addition to this the correct use and embedding of CC license may greatly help in the effort to make original sources more transparent to the final reader, in many context, including news and content curation efforts of many kinds.
Creative Commons licences can be embedded into a variety of resources, such as PowerPoint, images, Word docs, elearning resources, podcasts and other audio visual resources.
While specifically prepared for UK public sector organizations this document can be quite useful for anyone interested in the use of CC licenses to distribute digital content online.

Robin Good: Postano is a social media content aggregation and curation platform that can be integrated in your web site or Facebook page.
Through its internal dashboard it can be set to agregate coming from any of your social media channels. From Wordpress or Tumblr blogs to Facebook Pages, Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest accounts, Postano offers a comprehensive array of social media sources to tap into. Additionally you can add any RSS feeds that may be relevant to you.
Postano allows you to pick and select which content you want to publish and how you want to it look and appear. Your curated channel can be finally integrated as a full embed in your website and/or added as a tab to your Facebook page.
One great key feature available as a WordPress plugin but also usable with any other publishing platform allows for all of the content and links "embedded" in your site via POstano to be also fully indexed by standard search engines.
