social curationThere are times when you know you want to put together a collection of photos, articles, tweets, videos and snippets of things from around the web. Maybe you’re brainstorming for an article you’re going to write, following some breaking news, planning a holiday, collecting reasons to support your fundraising cause, or maybe you’re just redecorating your house and need to collect inspiration ideas. Whatever your reasons, sometimes you need a tool which will collect together all of these things visually and let you store the results privately or share them with friends.

Bundlr is a great new curation tool which offers exactly this. Piece together your collection from around the web and then save privately or share as you wish. Bundlr makes the whole process really easy and the results are fantastic.

Sharing Your Bundlr Work

Bundlr has made it really easy to get your Bundlr message out to the world. It’s easy to share your Bundles with the world via social media or by embedding the Bundle in a webpage.

    I visited this one and it's true. I downloaded a free tool but only one. The others are not free.

    Is this safe to use? Some of the tools and extensions I got from the internet contains malware.

    I'm passing through some of your research on this topic, Angela, and it seems to me this bundlr does exactly the same thing as the Erly you presented 20 days before? Is that right? Any difference you would point right away?
    Thanks

      And now I saw the Tundlr. So, would the info in the tundlr (in a webpaged) be used in any different way than the info in the bundlr (tool, right?!)? Guess I'm getting a bit confused..!

        Actually, a group Tumblr is far more similar to Bundlr in that it creates an RSS feed and a site where people can view the page. Bundlr lets you embed the page into another page though, which can be really useful.

        In the end, your choice will depend on both which tool is easiest for you and your friends and which tool does the things you want.

      Erly is designed for use by people who keep their photos on social media sites and is probably therefore best for more personal collaboration.

      Bundlr is a little more generalised and would be ideal for classroom groups or collaborating with strangers who share your interests. Also, with the RSS and embedding features it's great for people who want to share with a wide audience.

        Thanks for your answer. 

        So, in your opinion, the Bludlr is better, since is covers a bigger range of possibilities of use. 
        I get that. 
        Still, I am trying to "study" a bit about this clipping/curing apps, and, at the end of the day, the conclusion that mostly pops out, is that there are so many of them, a lot of competition, that I guess none will be as successful as del.icio.us (for example) was years ago. There isn't real innovation, anymore, in this field, isn't that right?

          Hmm, I wouldn't necessarily say one was better than the other. Just that each has different strengths so the best choice will depend on what you want to do with it. To really understand, you probably have to give each of them a go yourself.

          As for innovation, Erly's social media integration is quite innovative. Try it!

      Yeah, sadly they are the only two options available. It's disappointing that they don't offer a way to sign up directly.
