The bookmarklet helps you publish interesting content directly from your browser to your topic: if you find interesting content while browsing the web, just click on the bookmarklet, it will add the content to your topic (if you have several topics, the bookmarklet will ask you to select which topic you want to post it to).
To install the bookmarklet, go to http://www.scoop.it/bookmarkletInfo and follow the instructions; it’s a simple drag and drop of the button to your bookmark bar (not the browser toolbar).
Here's a video screencast showing how to install it and use it (shown on Safari but see below for other browsers):
If your bookmark bar doesn’t show on Chrome, here’s how to activate it:
- use the Ctrl+Shift+B keyboard shortcut (Command+Shift+B for Mac users) or

On Internet Explorer:
Right-click the “Scoop it” button on http://www.scoop.it/bookmarkletInfo and select Add to Favorites.
Simply drag and drop the bookmarklet to your bookmark bar. You can also right-click and save it as a bookmark.
