Have you heard of Paper.li?  You may have seen it and not known what it was.  Have you seen these posts on Twitter? This is an automatically generated tweet that goes out notifitying me that someone has included my in one of their editions.

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.

As someone that always likes to share other people's great content I found it quite restrictive on Instagram, that it wasn't possible to easily do that.

Before they created ‘an app for that' I would have to take a screen shot and then crop it.  Then post it and make sure that I gave credit to the person that originally posted it.

Well, now there is ‘an app for that'! Quite a few of them actually.

I have been trying out two different ones:

Repost for Instagram and Repost and Regram (these are links to the apps on iTunes)

Reposting on  Instagram

Both are free and have various features that I talk through on show #14.

Are you using an app to repost on Instragram? Which one are you using? Also, if I'm not following you on Instragram leave your username as well and I will come and find you.  My username is: @staceylmyers.

I don't know about you but there have been quite a few times on Facebook that I have come across a post that I wanted to save for later. In show #8 I share about the new save feature on Facebook.

I use the Favourite feature on Twitter for such items, things that are of interest to me but I don't have time right then to read them or I want to save them to share with others later.

Facebook recently released a save feature.  This will be rolled out on phone apps and web based applications.  You can save posts with links, places, music, movies, books, films, TV shows and events.

I have the feature on my phone but don't yet have it when using Facebook on my PC. I am sure it will be available shortly. In saying that, though, I am still waiting for Graph Search.

All you need to do to save something is click on the little arrow on the top right hand side of the post – you will then see an option that says: ‘Save'. Refer to the picture below.

Once you have saved it you can find it on your phone by clicking on ‘more' or by clicking on the left hand side of Facebook on the web.

You are the only one that can see what you have saved, unless you choose to share it with friends yourself.

At times Facebook will remind you of some of the things you have saved by showing them in your news feed.

I would love to hear your thoughts on this new Feature! Leave them in the comments below.
