As a followup to Sandro's recent post on social media and the TechNet Wiki I like to discuss another social media channel. This is channel is Paper li. This online service enables you to monitor content and topics on the web. By creating an account with this service you can start configuring what you like to gather and place on one page. Basically the service is performing content curation for you by filtering, presenting and sharing of the most relevant digital content for a specific audience.

In the beginning of 2012 I started Microsoft Integration MVP Daily using Paper li. The content I gathering on line is all kinds of news around integration with a focus on Microsoft. Every day around a specific time the paper with new content is generated and accessible for the target audience. Through twitter an announcement of is made every day to make people aware that a new version of edition is ready.

By clicking on the link the paper is presented in a new browser page.

The paper can be read on a laptop, desktop, mobile phone or tablet. You can read the short summaries and easily access the content by clicking the links.

It would not be a surprise to you that the paper will also present all the relevant Microsoft integration content published on the TechNet Wiki. Content around BizTalk Server, Windows Azure BizTalk Services, SSIS, and so on. Currently the paper has almost reached its 700th edition and frequently creates awareness of newly published TechNet Wiki articles. This makes the service in combination with other social media like Twitter, LinkedIn, Curah, Facebook, and Flipboard a valuable channel of promoting the TechNet Wiki content.

In case you are interested in trying it out to curate your own content and share it with your followers on twitter than I highly recommended this service. It easy to setup, configure and maintain.
