One of our most popular posts is 30+ Cool Content Curation Tools, which is a great list of over 30 different tools that will help your discover, share and curate content for your blog, website or social media presence. Our readers have left a lot of great suggestions in the comment section for additional curation tools and resources, and it seems more new tools crop up every week.
So today we’re back with another huge list of content curation tools that includes some old favorites (like Google Reader, that we somehow overlooked on our original list…shame on us!), new players that have surged in popularity since the last time we published a list like this (hello, Pinterest!) as well as some up and coming curation sites and platforms.
