Summaries of Stuff You Share

I am going to be writing a future post with some thoughts on how an ordinary job seeker could use curating tools, but, today I wanted to show you what they look like. There are tons of options out there and below you will see the ones I’ve been experimenting with.

How They Work

You specify the post, articles or content you want to appear in your summary. It can be your content or other great information you find online. You do not need an account to view them. They operate sort of like a webpage. Just click on any of the images below and you can see how they work and what they look like live! These are all free at the basic level at this time. One other thing to note, these work because they focus on images and summarized content. Data suggests we love images and are more likely to click through to content with images we like!

Career Sherpa’s Twylah Summary Page

Twylah is great for Twitter lovers. It only pulls from the tweets you (or others) share. And if you like someone’s Twylah page you can share it with your favorite social network!

Career Sherpa on RebelMouse

RebelMouse is pulling the content I share from my Twitter account, Facebook, Pinterest, and LinkedIn (because I asked it to). This is a great way to summarize content.

Career Sherpa on Scoop.it

I’ll admit, I don’t use this as much because I have to manually curate the content. In other-words, I have to select the articles I want to publish (at least I haven’t found a way to make that happen automatically). Th Scoop.it paper shown below is specifically designed for attendees of Career Navigator, a job search program offered through One-Stops in New York State.

What do you think?

Each tool has its own set of features and unique offerings. The best way to learn about them is to try them!

As a job seeker, how do you think these might help you?

    I should have guessed you were using livefyre. I strongly dislike this commenting system. I don’t understand why anyone uses it at all.
     
    As for what I wanted to say before, my problem with these sites is I have no control over them. Previously experts wanted everyone to use LinkedIn Answers but now LinkedIn Answers is no more. Many other websites people have invested time in have disappeared or changed their policies.
     
    I think most of your online brand building effort should go into a URL you have near total control over.  I built something similar quick and dirty which used the Topsy API but now Topsy wants me to pay to use their API so that doesn’t work either.
     
    If one of these sites had a widget I could include it would make them more appealing. Do any of them have widgets I can include on another website?
