A Great Alternative to RebelMouse: Curate Your Social Media Hub with Pressly

A Great Alternative to RebelMouse: Curate Your Social Media Hub with Pressly | Content Curation World | Scoop.it
Robin Good's insight:



Pressly is a new web app which allows you to create a social hub, similar to what you can do with RebelMouse or Tint, where you can aggregate and curate your favorite content from your social media channels, web site as well as from your fans content.


The app can aggregate and curate content coming from Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIN, Instagram, Pinterest, YouTube, SoundCloud, Vimeo and from any RSS feed. 

You can easily search for specifick keywords, hashtags and users across any of your "connected" feeds and save any specific search for future use. You can also preview the results of any search and curate the items that you want to curate and publish in your hub in real-time or automatically.


Similarly to its growing number of competitors Pressly automatically generates a social hub that can be easily viewed across web, tablets and smartphones and that it's very easy to navigate.


Differently than RebelMouse, the content aggregated is not just excerpted or simply pointed to, but it is actually imported, stripped of anything outside the original text and images and presented in a new clean and highly readable format.


My comment: A solid content aggregation and curation tool and a valid alternative to RebelMouse. Great UI, ease of use and ability to search and find relevant content. Here there are some tangible margins of improvement in making the curator less constrained when searching and browsing results for new content.


Pressly offers a free version with the possibility of using your own domain name, Google Analytics integration and up to 10,000/month views. The PRO version, adds support for capturing email leads, the options of using standard ads, up to 100,000 views and analytics at $499/mo.

A Great Platform for Curating and Publishing On Any Topic: RebelMouse

A Great Platform for Curating and Publishing On Any Topic: RebelMouse | Content Curation World | Scoop.it
Robin Good's insight:



RebelMouse may be one of the best free tools out there to do news, social or content curation for your personal brand, company or organization.


Beneath the appearance of a social media aggregation app, lies a super-powerful curation and publishing infrastructure which allows you to aggregate and monitor any social media stream from Facebook to Instagram and Pinterest, and lets you import RSS feeds and add specific filters to get exactly what you want.


While most reviewers will see RebelMouse as a tool to "quickly assemble a Web page populated with links from your Facebook and Twitter streams, using a slick graphical presentation that looks quite a bit like Pinterest" (source: HuffPo), I think this social aggregation and publishing has indeed a lot more to offer and it has all of the required features to become a great content curation and publishing solution.


With RebelMouse you can do seven key things. You can:


  1. pick any content you find on the web and you can curate it and post to your rebelMouse site by using the freely available bookmarklet

  2. aggregate any number of Facebook and Twitter streams, including specific searches, users and hashtags, as well as any RSS feed you want.

  3. filter this content according to your own rules

  4. auto-publish any of this content, or

  5. set individual sources to be manually "curated" by you. 

  6. "embed" your RebelMouse generated site on your website or "map" (by paying a small fee) your own domain to it.

  7. create multiple sub-pages with RebelMouse and a dedicated navigation system that can point also to your own existing web properties. Each of these sub-sites can be customized to focus on a specific topic or event.


On the design and "look and feel" front, RebelMouse provides a set of alternative templates, but the look is basically the same across the board with variants relating to the font styles and colors.


It is also true that you can personalize your RebelMouse site and alter the design however you'd like with the custom CSS option that is already available.


But it is certain, that providing a set of advanced, professional-looking templates, where users could for examples decide manually the size of certain tiles, would provide enormous added value to users who would see RebelMouse as a possible direct gateway to publishing their own site.

For $9.99/month you can also "map" your RebelMouse pages to your own domain, so that your RebelMouse content stays on your own site.

In addition you can also further customize the RebelMouse page look, by being able to remove the "Following" and "Featured" modules from your pages.

RebelMouse was born to build a social media hub, but it does have strong aggregation, filtering and curation capabilities. SEO-wise it is not a great choice, but also Scoop.it has quite a few limits on this front. <br><br>Rebelmouse doesn't offer all of the extras Scoop.it has, from scheduling, to sharing to an extended number of social networks, to integration with newsletter and to the backend dashboard. <br><br>Scoop.it has also a better, cleaner and more legible format, that better lends itself to more in-depth reading than just browsing titles, images and tweets.

While I still use RebelMouse I have disconnected all inbound links because it posts it wacky and I was always having to go back and edit stuff. Now that I post stuff manually with their applet it isn't so bad. I still prefer Scoop.it though.

I use Rebelmouse for a while now, and I like it as a complementary tool to other Social Media tools. You can have a look at it on https://www.rebelmouse.com/Terheck/
