Last night a friend sent me a message asking how he would know if I had posted something on Scoop.It. It's simple. Every time I scoop an article I link it to my Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn accounts. For example, this morning I scooped an article on self-publishing children's books. Within five minutes this announcement appeared on Twitter:

Shortly thereafter, this link appeared on Facebook:
