ScoopWeb offers a broad range of media content from a varied and extensive range of sources. A real-time topic explorer which provides you with news, information, images, videos, documents and tweets.
ScoopWeb is a real-time news and content finding engine, capable of tapping hundreds of reputable news sources as well as Twitter and the full web to report a shortlist of relevant content items to check.
I'd define ScoopWeb a curated search engine, and a good early example of what newer search engines, after Google, are going to look like.
ScoopWeb can be in fact queried on any topic, and it instantly provides a short selection of news stories, Twitter mentions, relevant images and video clips as well as the top 10 web sites on the topic and a shortlist of available PDFs and white papers on the topic.
I personally find it an excellent content finding tool. Easy, fast and uncluttered. Much better than Google for finding good content. Recommended.
