    I have used scoop.it tool for content creation and find it really impressive for updating the contents of my website. In 2014, SEO is all about your content and you’ll get top position quickly if your contents are excellent in quality and unique. On the other hand if you have duplicated content then it will not only kick away your website from search results but also penalize your website. I am pretty happy to read about these 5 tools for content creation and will experience other four tools too. Thanks for this great post :)

    Great list of content curation tools Deepak. We are a digital agency and for our own social channels we use a number of curation sources including Twitter lists extensively (@eBizROI), inbound.org and RSS feeds of the relevant blogs such as the AdAge 150 and other similar feeds. LinkedIn Pulse, Google+ Communities. To a lessor degree, we use Facebook trends and Google+ Hot Topics. Thanks for sharing.

    Very handy list. Scoop.it seems to be quite the rage these days. How feasible is it to manage all of these at the same time? Does it make sense to do so, or just stick with one?
