Content Curation: 5 Tips for using Alltop

What is AlltopA fantastic content curation website.  They bill themselves as “the online magazine rack of the web.” It’s populated by the TOP blogs from around the web and hundreds of topics are sorted alphabetically for easy search. It’s the ultimate content curation site since you can add the feeds from your favorite blog (they must be on Alltop) to create a personal page of your favorites. When you come to the website, go to your custom MyAlltop page and voila, great information to read and share with your followers.

Without further ado… Five Fab Tips about Alltop:

1. Set up an Alltop account. Create a MyAlltop Page. Here’s a tutorial with lots of details for you.  Here’s MyAlltop page.

2. Load the Alltop app on your iPhone or iPad.

3. Manage your feeds on your page to create your perfect content curation source. You can add or delete feeds from your page at anytime.

4. Use Buffer to collect all your great content to share. I use the Buffer Chrome extension to easily add content throughout the day.

5. Curate some great people! Check out the Pluserati Alltop page to see the Pluserati’s last five Google+ posts.  the Twitterati page to see their last five tweets:
