KBucket Topic Curation

Description

Curate your knowledge of topics and events and share it via KBucket!

Editorialize any type of link (webpages, tweets, facebook posts, Youtube videos, google docs, pdf files…), assign content tags and publish it to your website.

Use KBucket as a B2B sales tool to empower your sales people and employees to share content from the library and drive traffic to your website.

Or, use KBucket as a hub to organize access to information based on project and worker needs, to help save time and improve productivity for information workers.

KBucket plugin for WordPress integrates as a standalone page on your website, and makes it easy to host, organize, navigate and share hundreds of curated content items in context!

Let’s take a look and see how it works.

Curation made easy

We make it real easy to curate and organize material straight in your browser with our Kurator extension for Chrome.

With Kurator you can save any type of link accessible from the Internet, editorialize the title and summary, record the publisher, author and date and assign content tags to categorize your items.

When you see an article you want to keep, you simply click on the Kurator icon, it scrapes information from the page and lets you add your own comments and tags.

Let’s take a look and see how it works.

What are the limitations with the Trial Version

The Trail version lets you post 10 articles per channel and create as many channels as you wish. The idea is for you to make sure the Plugin works for you and is compatible with your site.

You can also grab the article “url” placed under each article and paste it to your timeline. Additionally you can schedule links in a channel using the RSS feed provided for each channel in your dashboard. You can find these feeds under the “Published Links” tab in your KBucket dashboard.
