It has been a while since I’ve posted here. I have somewhat kept up my content curation on Scoop.it and Paper.li, though I have not been as active as I once was. However, when I logged in to Paper.li this evening and saw the announcement of the upcoming changes, I felt the need to delete my account. Basically, what they have managed to do is cap content to ten per day and are getting rid of the ability to share to most social media outlets (as well as doing away with the ability to personalize–which wasn’t all that great to begin with) unless curators pay up now.
I will find another venue–Paper.li had already started to become “stale” in feel. At one point, I thought it was great. Now, however, the company behind the site has decided to make people pay for things that have always been free, on a site that has not improved in years.
As far as this curator is concerned, no thanks.
