Curating With Scoop.it!

USF Scoop.ItI’m lucky to work with an innovative social media team. They’ve led the way in turning an anemic online social community of about 50 at the University of San Francisco into one with hundreds of contributors and an audience of more than 60,000. How great is that!?

What used to be a few campus faculty, media folks, and interested students is now open to almost anyone who publishes content on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and other channels with the #USFCA hashtag. The university’s social media team track the #USFCA content and then choose the best to “scoop” — publishing what they find on the curated platform to be read and shared.

Be the #hashtag

So what is this newfangled curation platform? Scoop.it founder Guillaume Decugis visited campus to talk more about it. He praised #USFCA and highlight other brands like Ashoka Communty’s Change Making Today campaign. Check out Guillaume’s Slideshare and watch USF E-communications Director Thomas Listerman talk about the difference Scoop.it has made at USF.

Not only has Scoop.it improved the social community on campus, it has advanced USF’s brand and it’s only been in use for about six months. What do you think of Scoop.it?
