Looking back at #Thing14: Pinterest, Tumblr and Scoop.it

26 Aug

Good morning everyone; this week’s wrap of Thing14 Curating with Pinterest, Tumblr and Scoop.it is going to be brief, for a number of reasons, but hopefully I can capture the essence of what I thought was a great week. If you’ve fallen off the wagon, feel free to hop back on, because some people are just starting the journey – check out this tweet from Elizabeth Jane ‏@lizziejane23 Aug #anz23mthings got inspired to start the 23 things. Thanks Tapsister! #thing1 consider it done.

This week Renee (@stokesrenee) wrote: Wondering why Flipboard didn’t get a mention? Great social curation tool primarily for mobile. I guess the reply that springs to mind is that individuals write the weekly introductions so we each bring our own learnings and preferences to the table. Funnily enough, someone introduced me to Flipboard last night and I instantly thought it had a lot of potential. Thanks for raising it for #anz23mthing followers Renee.

Renee also blogged about #Thing14, which you can catch here, as she talks about using Scoop.it for a professional project.

Cath (@kiwilibrarian) blogged about how useful she finds Pinterest, and admits to dipping her toes into the waters of Tumblr.

Speaking of Pinterest, Karen ‏@KMalbon tweeted that she had Successfully added a book from our library catalogue. #anz23mthings #vicpln http://pinterest.com/pin/60869032436938569/ … via @pinterest

One of the things that stuck me this week was the variety of ways people are using Pinterest, the huge sense of community between librarians on Tumblr, and the fact that Scoop.it is increasingly being use for professional curation. If you haven’t had a chance to try out any of #Thing14 yet I’d urge you to have a play.

If you blogged this week and I missed it, please leave a comment as we’d love to include you.
