There are 4 different ways to curate a topic:
1. Rescoop content from your followed topics
When you find a relevant article on one of the topics you follow that you'd also like to publish on yours, just click on the Rescoop button located at the top right of each article.
2. Accept a post suggested by the suggestion engine
At the top of your Scoop.it page, mouseover the "My Topics" tab and select the topic you want to publish content on to be redirected to its Curate page.
Click on the green Scoop.it button at the top of each suggested content to add it to your topic.
You can also add your own sources: find out how!
3. Create a post
Use the “New Post” button located at the top of your Scoop.it page.
Either paste an URL in the dedicated field and click on the blue button with the two white arrows. The system will then automatically extract the title, picture/video/pdf and description, which you can of course edit as you wish.
Or write your own post by clicking on "You can also write a post without any URL"link. An empty editing window will appear.
3. Grab content while navigating the web
To do so, simply click on the “Scoop.it” bookmarklet. A bookmarklet is a button which you can add to the tool bar of your web browser.

4. Accept content suggested by other users
Other Scoop.it users, as well as visitors of your topics, can suggest content to your topics (by using the “Suggest” button in your topic tool bar – this button replaces the “New Post” button for visitors) or by using the bookmarklet themselves (the bookmarklet indeed allows to add content to your own topics or to suggest content to topics you follow). Content suggested by users will appear in your list of suggested content, on top of content suggested by the engine. You can decide to accept them by clicking on the green Scoop.it button (see the second image) or not (click on the red Discard button/ see the second image).
