When I click on the link and go to see what it is that he shared, it looks like this. This is what a tweet shared looks like. If it was a blog post then you would see an image or an image with a summary.
So, what is Paper.li?
Paper.li is a content curation service that let's you turn socially shared content into beautiful online newspapers and newsletters. But more than that it's an easy to use, powerful tool that helps you save time by surfacing content (blogs, articles, sites, video,images) and people who are interested in the same topics that you are!
It is a really great content creation tool. You can pull content from anywhere you want and have it appear in your paper.
This is a Google hangout that I did with Carol Bremner who has been having some good success with publishing Paper.li papers.
This video is longer than my usual short ones. I watch a lot of videos and find it handy to use the video speed setting options in YouTube. Click on the little cog wheel to the right on the video toolbar and find ‘speed'. Click on that and you can watch the video up to two times faster. I have definitely found this handy when watching videos.
wow Stacey… you do a great job teaching these technology items…. I have never heard of this but it could be something to use…. you rock…. thanks for sharing.
Thanks for your kind words!
Thanks for sharing . I have never heard of it! sounds great.
It is quite good indeed and a lot of people use it to create electronic papers.
That's cool have never heard of it, will have to check it out, thanks!
Yes, do check it out – it might be something that really supports what you are up to.
Interesting Stacey, I had not heard of paper.li, and I never tried speeding up the video – that was good advice!
Oh yes, Ron, the speeding up of the video is a god send! I do the same thing when I listen to podcasts and audio books.
Stacey – this is so cool. I love how simple you make it. Great share. Great post… keep it coming
