    Wow, that’s a very impressive list! Thank you!

  4. PolystoryInc says:

    Please add http://polystory.com to the list. :)

  5. MsPseudolus says:

    Wow! Great list – I appreciate the completeness :)  There is a newcomer that should added, Kuratur.com. Similar to Paper.li. Thanks!

  6. FollowMeSticker says:

    What an amazing list. Thank you for putting this together. I didn’t see this on there: You might enjoy Kippt (kippt.com)- it has an inbox for articles that you can then sort into categories (if you want.) There’s also an Android app called Clippt that works nicely with kippt.com.

    • FollowMeSticker says:

      Forgot to add, for displaying your curated topics there is also http://glos.si that lets you merge many streams into one page (sort of like friendfeed or rebelmouse). ALSO – if you want to automatically send things from one to the other, there are two powerful options that I know of : IFTTT (http://ifttt.com/) or Zapier.com

  7. MsPseudolus says:

    Just realized that Clipboard would probably be a good addition to the list. I use it a lot. :) Love this list! I’ve added it to my Clipboard, ha!

    Also see our new enterprise platform http://www.editoreye.com
    Just released on standalone basis from http://www.strategyeye.com platform.
    Is full editorial workflow for content curation, by category, company or trigger (eg New Contract Win, Venture Capital deal). Allows instant favouriting, curation or full editorial workflow for long-form and output in API and portal templates.
    Used live by Press Association, Haymarket, Time Warner/IPC, Progressive Media, Clarion for live article creation in B2B platforms and now brands directly.

  11. Tom Lowe says:

    That is a remarkably complete list! I’d also recommend http://spike.newswhip.com – it ranks the news articles and blog posts spreading fastest across all of Facebook and Twitter in real time – gives you a really good idea of what the world is talking about right now.

    • ScottScanlon says:

      @Tom Lowe Thanks for sharing, great recommendation. We just signed up today and really like the interface and how it presents everything. It’s a thin line here but I think it this system fits more on our real time search lists: http://www.youbrandinc.com/new-media-tools/the-ultimate-list-of-trending-real-time-search-and-social-search-websites/
       
      possibly we will add it the the listening platforms above. Either way we’ll get it up this weekend.

      • Tom Lowe says:

        @ScottScanlon That’s great, thanks Scott! Looking forward to seeing it on the site – I think you’re right, it does fit well into the trending/real time search list. We’re at a very early stage with the product right now – we first imagined it as a tool for journalists only but users actually come from a wide variety of professional backgrounds. If you have any questions about Spike just drop me a line!

  12. patweber says:

    I had NO idea there were so many. Geez. That’s going to take some time to sift through and it’s MOST appreciated!

  13. samrosen says:

    Hey Scott – definitely seems like Percolate is worth putting up there?

  14. RobArendt says:

    Hey Scott, great info, much appreciated. Another one worth looking at http://www.scribit.com

    Snip.it dumped all their users today. They sold out to Yahoo. They gave us a note telling us how excited they are. I’m kind of angry about, not excited at all. Every user of the service has been suddenly left in limbo. We can get an HTML or PDF of our content but we had no notice to try keep subscribers to our topics or keep in touch with people in the community. We are just left twisting in the wind. But, they did thank us for our contribution to their great success. Thanks don’t really work when I feel kicked to the curb.

    • ScottScanlon says:

      @thatgrrl Wow, that’s not good to hear, sorry about that. I saw the news earlier today then saw that Yahoo! planned to shut it down. Hopefully you can at least import the stuff into another platform and connect with some users. Not to plug our own system but that’s the exact reason we built Curation Traffic about a year ago. We wanted to control the platform, which we talk a little bit about in this post: http://curationtraffic.com/content-curation-commentary/if-you-want-to-profit-with-content-curation-you-must-own-the-platform/
       
      But adding what you mentioned to that is important. When you’re on someone else’s platform in a sudden swoop they can leave you in limbo.
       
      We’ll probably have to take Snip.it off the list here then.

    Hi Scott – not sure if you are open to covering European companies but wanted to mention one :-) EditorEye.com has just been released as a standalone enterprise curation product – based on the platform we deliver to a lot of the major publishers here (Haymarket, Time Warner, Press Association) for spotting breaking discovering stories to write on for their B2B publications and now released as a product for brands and agencies.

  17. Hi Scott,

    We’re a little late to the comment party, but were hoping you could add B2B Content Engine to the list. As our name suggests, we are specifically for B2B purposes. However, even though we work directly with companies and offer content marketing strategy, we offer a partner program (including training, support, etc) so B2B marketers can have the best of both worlds (i.e. a comprehensive, B2B solution to utilize for their clients without the enterprise cost). Essentially, our core belief holds that any curation tool, regardless of functionality, is unlikely to perform well without the a viable content strategy in place.

    You can find us at http://www.b2bcontentengine.com

  18. Man this is a huge and impressive list. I had no idea there were so many competing services. While it’s good to see all the options, from a time saving and efficiency point of view which are your top 3 tools to use?

  19. Joanna Brien says:

    Hi Scott, have you checked out Pressjack yet? It outputs curated content as dynamic magazines that automatically update when the sources of the content they are created from are updated. http://pressjack.3dissue.com

  20. Anton Osika says:

    Why is not diigo fully featured here? (check owlink, and bibsonomy)

    God there are too many. Make a poll!

  21. Red Moon says:

    Appreciate great info. Please check out newly started curation tool, 1-mix.com (Storify alternative)

  22. Jeff Kauffman Jr. says:

    Great list! I’ve got another one for you. 100% focused on video curation – Huzzaz.com. Request invites @huzzaz and a Panda will deliver the goods:)

  23. Yuval Shemesh says:

    Can’t find roojoom in the list……

  24. Yael Kochman says:

    Hi Scott, great list! Knew most of these but some are new- will check them out. I would like to add Roojoom to the list – Roojoom is a new tool that let’s you connect different web pages, videos, etc into one link and add your commentary alongside the content. This enables you to guide your reader through the content, while increasing both time spent with content and engagement. You can use any content both internal and external and embed the result in your own website. Check it out on roojoom.com – would be happy to see us on this list!

  25. Dear Scott, thanks for the list – discovered quite a few new platforms!
    Would love for you to take a look at our content organization and curation tool – http://www.channelkit.com. We’re still in beta and greatly appreciate feedback :)

  26. Vikram Pandya says:

    You have missed Wepware.com, It is really amazing.

  27. morethan2parties says:

    Some of your links are obsolete: Dashter is not available, .Collected is not available, Qrait is not available (but the company offers an rss reader if you follow one of the links on that page), Faveous only does phone numbers, Clipboard is gone, Nextmags doesn’t exist, Retickr – wasn’t there, XYDO is changing to xydocuration, Intigi is not available. (Sorry, the font size is odd, but I don’t know how to unify it.)

    Hi Scott
    Thank you for a great review.
    Can you tell us more about the different between Curation Traffic and Curation Suite.
    Does Curation suite includes the old product of Curation Traffic? If so, it is confusing to have them both on the market.

    • scottscanlon says:

      We also just responded to your support request, I apologize we didn’t get to it sooner.

      We are going to send out an update this week.

      Curation Suite is new built from the ground up platform. We’ve taken everything we learned from the last few years with Curation Traffic and curation and built/mapped out where we see curation going

      Some concepts or ideas from Curation Traffic show up in parts of Curation Suite but that’s about all.

      We went in this direction for a host of reasons. One being that the Curation Traffic name comes with it the internet marketing feel. That doesn’t represent our mindset, the product and service we are creating.

      We haven’t made any decisions yet on what any of this means other than knowing with Curation Suite we want to build the single best content curation platform on the market.

  29. G Pickholz says:

    I would be most interested in seeing an UPDATED article and comments on this topic, and one that includes/compares & contrasts Roojoom and others like it to these earlier generation solutions. The entire industry was altered in the last year.

  30. Sravan Kumar says:

    Wow – this is a wonderful list – got to know some new content curation sites to generate more traffic. Thanks Scott

  31. Yani says:

    Very impressive list Scott. I familiar with Postano, and without going one by one on that list and trying to compare as it will take for ever, I wonder if you or anybody here can help me and suggest a similar platform but in more reasonable prices. I would appreciate a feedback,

  32. Mynd says:

  34. Robert Stillman says:

    Hi Scott- Great list! I’m not sure if you’re still maintaining this list, but if you are, you should add Opentopic (http://opentopic.com/content-marketing-platform/content-curation/). The tool allows you to filter through information for relevant content and curate, customize and publish directly to a web application, social media channel or newsletter template.

  35. Thanks for the amazing informative list
