Snip.it: Collect the Best of the Web

Filed in Small Teams, Big Impact by Robert Scoble | June 29, 2012 8:08 am

Snip.it is a popular social curation site that lets you discover, capture, and lend your voice to important topics and stories as they evolve through articles, video, images and other online content. Snip.it lets you collect the best of the web, wrapped in your opinions. You can connect with other Snippers and dive deeper into the topics that interest you.

“Snip.it is a multifaceted way to curate,” explains Ramy Adeeb, Snip.it’s Founder & CEO. “Sixty to seventy percent of people on the internet are sharing links. Snip.it lets you collect the best of the web articles, put them into a collection, you add your thoughts to it, and others can subscribe to the collection. The most fundamental difference between Snip.it and other products are the emphasis on collecting articles and you don’t follow people.”

The site was founded in the spring of 2011 when Egypt-born, San Francisco-based Ramy Adeeb, then a principal at Khosla Ventures, was increasingly asked by friends to share his thoughts and articles on the Arab Spring. Unable to find a permanent and centralized place to collect, share and opine on all the content he had been reading, he teamed with former Twitter developer Mark Percival to form Snip.it.

The site has been featured in several high profile news outlets, including The Wall Street Journal, TechCrunch, Mashable and AllThingsD. The company is funded by Khosla Ventures, True Ventures, Charles River Ventures, and SV Angel.
