Robin Good's insight:
If you re looking for examples of content curation platforms outside of the popular ones, you may want to give a look to what appears to be the most popular curation platform in Japan: Naver Matome.
From what I gather and can see, this is something very similar to Tumblr, providing an intuitive publishing platform supported by easy-to-use features to easily grab, capture, credit and republish most any kind of content or social stream.
"Naver Matome is a very simple curation platform that launched back in July of 2009. To date it has accumulated over 41 million users and over 1.2 billion page views per month. The platform is now operated by NHN Japan (perhaps best known as the company behind the Line chat app) after a merger with Naver in November of 2011.
On the site, users are able to create pages that bundle images, links, and videos under a topic of their choice, ranging from dieting, to politics, to web services.
There are many reasons behind the platform’s sucess including its friendly user interface, the wide genre of topics curated, compatibility with different social networks (especially Twitter), and strong SEO for both Yahoo and Google with 70% of its traffic coming from the two search engines."
