Content Curation Tools: The Ultimate List

The Ultimate List of Content Curation Tools, and accompanying map, is comprised of both business grade tools that can support organizations’ content marketing strategies, as well as personal curation tools that can be used by individuals for hobbyist or organizational purposes.


Content curation is when an individual (or team) consistently finds, organizes, annotates and shares the most relevant and highest quality digital content on a specific topic for their target market. Curation is a great way to support your created content strategy, publish content consistently and keep track of your favorite information sources. Enlightened content marketers are using a content mix that is only 65% created, with the remainder being 25% curated and 10% syndicated.

My hope is that this map will help you or your organization navigate the growing world of curation and find a tool that best fits your content needs.

The Purpose of this List

If you’re all caught up on The Ultimate Content Marketing Tools List, then you already know that the content marketing tools universe is vast – and still expanding. Marketing and technology are constantly joining forces to provide marketers with simpler solutions to publishing higher quality, relevant content for their audiences. Whether you’re part of the 71% of marketers increasing spend on content this year, or you’re just looking for a tool to help keep track of news and social media, this list of curation tools will help to cut through the curation clutter and make sense of what differentiates each application, service and platform.


It is becoming increasingly difficult to keep up with the rapidly expanding universe of content marketing, as well as each sector that it emcompasses – such as content curation. For this reason, this list is not comprehensive. There is no doubt that there are other tools out there that are as effective as the ones listed below, and perhaps serve different functions.

In order to help make this list more complete I hope you will suggest additions in the comments section below.

  • Deeps

    Great list. I was looking out for the same. Now I will add up my content to this list…

  • Tejas Sangoi

    Content curation without return traffic is useless. drives traffic back to your site by allowing customized messages in each link you share. See demo:

    [I work at]

  • gevaperry

    Also check out – just launched

  • Nirajan Bom Malla is another curation tool but just for videos.

  • standrean

    Pocket Social is another great tool (; gives you control over what’s being posted on your social media platforms. It finds content for you, and then you choose whether you want it posted or not. Gives a higher degree of autonomy than other social media automation tools out there.

    Interesting to see Pinterest in this list, though – not the first that comes to find when I think of ‘content curation’, but I love using it.

  • stefan infp

    Zimilate is an other amazing content curation tool.

  • stefan infp

    Also Kippt, Trello and Keeeb can be added to the list.

  • Innonet

    Well, the list shows perfect that no other tool can reach Curata. Unfortunately, Curata is too expensive for small companies in the start-up phase.

  • Pratik Poddar
  • Dar Payment

    Wow! Thanks for the awesome list!

  • Rajkumar Sam

  • Erwin van Dijke

    Can you add Diigo? A free tool to store URL’s, notes or pdf’s (premium account). You can also tag and share your subjects !

  • Greg Shuey

    Have you guys looked at Right Intel? (

  • Neil Ferree

    What a great list of CC tools. I’ve had to back the # of content discovery, curation and syndication tools and processes to get the job done. Buzzsumo, Feedly and shows me how “popular” an article, video, infographic or Slideshare Deck is by the # of social shares the content has gotten. As we all know, simply sharing great content is not enough. Properly framing and formatting and adding a CTA to the shared content is what most reader’s want and appreciate from your curation efforts – right?

  • Maria Subbotina

    It seems like you forgot LikeHack, a very cool thing for curation and social media publishing.

  • 24hr Atlanta Towing

    WOW! Awesome list. Just what I needed. Thank you for putting it all in one location, bookmarking it now.

  • News Curator

    Awesome list! You may also want to look at our tool News Curator, a new app that uses data-scientific algorithms and social networks to learn about your interests and help you discover relevant content in an automated way.

  • Apurva

    This is a neat list you have here. Personally, I use DrumUp (, and have found that is very easy to use. It finds relevant content and also posts it to Facebook & Twitter pages.

  • Laura

    Yes crowdynews. The content curation tool for publishers and editiors. Pls check It works great. I’m perhaps a little biased :-) as I work there as well. We have many great examples to show. Just let me know.

  • Tania Shipman

    Amazing list! I have clients in various industries that want me to provide daily posts for their readers. Which tool would you recommend for this purpose? Thanks.

    • Allison Maloney

      UpContent ( is a curation tool that just launched – you can get it through Hootsuite. It’s a pretty powerful tool with some unique filters options you don’t find in other tools. You can search blogs, news sites, video sites and social sites for content – and then sort results by relevance and recency, and then also by shareability (predicts the propensity for a specific content piece to be shared and interesting to an audience) or influence (influence is based on the authority of the author or website it’s coming from).

      The goal with Shareability and Influence is to quickly pinpoint the content you want to share with an audience, rather than having to read through bunches of results to find the perfect piece of content.

      I’m the VP of Marketing for the developer company, Community Elf. It’s a great tool and we’re looking for users to try it out and give us feedback! I’m happy to answer questions or field feedback ( We only have a free plan available currently, and if you install the UpContent Hootsuite app during March, we are offering a free topic that will be added to your account for life.

  • Allison Maloney

    UpContent is a new content curation tool that just launched March 11th as a Hootsuite App. The tool is differentiated in the market through the introduction of two new filters – Shareability and Influence – that, with the use of Relevance and Recency, enable users to more quickly pinpoint the content they want and need to share with their audiences.

    Shareability predicts and finds the content that has the best chance of being shared
    by your audience. Influence serves content that was created by thought leaders and/or by the individuals/brands that people within an industry listen to.

    Hootsuite App:

    In later spring, there will be a website-based application launched on, right now it’s only available through Hootsuite.

    Anyone that installs the free UpContent Hootsuite app during March will get an extra topic added to their account for life. It’s worth it to try it out!

    I am the head of marketing for the developer company, Community Elf. I am happy to chat about the tool or connect you to our CEO if you want to discuss anything!
