Robin Good's insight:
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.
Key features include:
With this new WordPress plugin you can use Storify’s popular drag-and-drop curation tools directly inside your WordPress dashboard and seamlessly post Storify stories on your blog with our plugin.
Without you having to do anything about it, Storify automatically maintains proper display and attribution of original sources, and lets you notify the people whose tweets were included in a story.
Storify stories can now be updated in real-time with new info or changing data and can be utilized for liveblogging events.
Free to use.

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.
