Aggregate, Filter and Mashup Social Streams, Images and Stats: EchoStudio

Aggregate, Filter and Mashup Social Streams, Images and Stats: EchoStudio | Content Curation World | Scoop.it
Robin Good's insight:


Echostudio is a powerful new web app which allows you to aggregate, filter and combine social signals, streams, images, statistical and map data on any topic or tag you specify and to publish them online.


The new web app is particularly powerful in its ability to let you collect and mashup into one web page different kind of data and sources according to your needs without sacrificing ease of use and design elegance.


Several filtering and moderation options provide the curator with all of the tools needed to precisely control the quantity and quality of content being published.


The service generates beautiful dynamic pages, which are fully responsive and that can be published online or embedded inside your own website. 


Echostudio is an ideal solution for a number of different applications including:

  • real-time live coverage of an event
  • branded social hub
  • information hub on a specific topic 
  • social news aggregator


I have been impressed by Echostudio powerful backend, ease of use, and beautiful output as well as by swiss-watch precision with which you can control almost anything in it. 

Kudos to Chris Saad and his team for having given birth to a such a wonderful discovery, curation and social publishing tool.

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.

Create, Publish and Curate Your Company Social Hub with Uberflip

Create, Publish and Curate Your Company Social Hub with Uberflip | Content Curation World | Scoop.it
Robin Good's insight:



Uberflip is a new web publishing tool that allows a company to easily create a social hub populated with the most relevant content coming from their main media properties, including blogs, RSS feeds, social media channels, images and videos, presentations and PDF documents.


Uberflip publishing metaphor is the "hub" in which, similarly to Rebelmouse and Pressly you can create multiple channels where you either aggregate or curate theme-specific content.


Among Uberflip unique features there is the ability to import and convert PDF documents into editable flipbooks, an array of widgets that can be added to integrate more functionalities (e.g.: Disqus comments) and a call-to-action feature allowing you to integrate customizable and elegant subscription boxes that directly connect to your newsletter provider (e.g.: Malchimp). 


Check my test site to get an idea of what you can do with it: http://robingood.uberflip.com/h/ 


My comment: Compared to Rebelmouse, Pressly, Uberflip is a tough contender. Its key strengths are the elegant and clean output design, which displays excellently also on tablets and smartphones and the breadth of features for curating and collecting content (e.g.: custom collections). Uberflip is also the only tool of this kind that integrates a PDF to flipbook conversion engine, allowing you to integrate any company PDF into one or more collections in a beautiful format to view.


The Basic version, which allows for one hub with multiple channels, one custom collection and one CTA costs $49.95/month. Higher priced versions at 199 and 499/mo allow for using your custom domain, more collections, CTAs and additional features including analytics and other features.    


Pricing info: http://www.uberflip.com/pricing 


Free 14-day trial.

Social Hubs & UGC Curation Tools To Surface and Filter Your Fans Best Content

Social Hubs & UGC Curation Tools To Surface and Filter Your Fans Best Content | Content Curation World | Scoop.it
Robin Good's insight:



"Brands know that users share content. In fact, users create and share original content more than any other time in the history of civilization. And, brands understand that there’s an opportunity to surface and collect content related to the brand experiences." 


For this very purpose, a growing number of content curation tools allow brands to gather, aggregate, filter and select the most relevant and interesting content posted by their own fans.


Rebelmouse and Tint are two such examples, but there are several more "social curation" tools that can be of help on this front.


Lindsay Howard provides a short but quite useful introduction to four such tools and to their key traits and characteristics.


  1. EngageSciences
  2. Crowdtap
  3. Curalate Fanreel
  4. Pixlee Photorank
