Snip.it is a tool that people can use to quickly grab, save, and organize their favorite online content. Whether it’s an article from the New Yorker, a video from YouTube, or an image from Tumblr, you can collect and share virtually any type of online content – and add your opinion to it – when you use Snip.it.
Before you can start snipping and saving your favorite articles with Snip.it, you’ll need to drag Snip.it’s bookmarklet button into your bookmark bar. Click on the button whenever you come across content you’d like to save to your Snip.it account, and file that content into one of your Snip.it “collections.” For each link you save, you can add a sentence or two describing your opinion of what you’ve seen or read. You can then share your collections with likeminded friends, or share your collections with the entire Snip.it community.
When you’re not saving the content you’ve found on Snip.it, you can browse through the articles, videos, and images that other people have saved. Fellow Snip.it users can subscribe to each other’s collections to get curated content about virtually any topic under the sun. For example, you can subscribe to a user’s astronomy collection – which could include articles, photos, videos, and other forms of online content – even if you’ve never met that user before in your life. When you come across a particular link to an article or photo that peaks your interest, “re-snip” it and add it to one of your own collections to save it for future use.
