Pros: I like that I can schedule content posting at later times and dates. I like that it can curate content from your topics or trending topics. I like the fact it can post to many of the popular social networks like facebook and twitter ans pinterest. I like that it can post to blogs as well.

Cons: There is a bit of a learning curve but it is intuitive for the most part. They don't have instagram posting yet.

Overall: It helps me to manage posting to my web properties.

Pros: This application is exactly what I need for my business. I get a sense that their suite of products is still veyr new though, as I'm picking up a few bugs as I start to test the product.

Cons: The bugs (obviously) and the customer service has a "live chat" but it can take days for support to come back to you. I think this early stage is where a business like this should increase their support team

Overall: Eases my content workflow.

Love this amazing product from ContentStudio.io

Pros: Takes the place of SEVERAL tools in one platform. I was using another similar product that was extremely difficult to manage. This took all of that away and made it easier to understand, find content and post.

Cons: Have not found anything yet. So far it has been pretty all encompassing of what I expected and need.

Overall: Saving time! That was the biggest reason for purchasing.

I love this product. It's made it easy for me to handle my business's social media

Pros: What I like most about this software is the ease of use. I can send blog post and social media content to most of my social media channels easily.

Cons: The application does not integrate with Instagram. I would love to have the ability to post to my Instagram account.

ContentStudio is best in class. I do not believe there is another product that can come close.

Pros: The best source for content I've found. So easy to use, truly anyone can use it. Searching by keyword is awesome. Using both Feedly and your own feeds is fantastic. The superior automation allows me to schedule for weeks in advance always knowing I'm get top notch content. Also the ability to preview the full content prior to selecting it.

Very nice feature to put your own groups together really allows you to find what you want instantly.

Waqar and his entire team are incredible if you need help or have any questions. Many others could learn a lot by how they take care of their customers. They make you feel like they appreciate you.

For me ContentStudio.io is NOT optional. It's a must have and I used it every day.

Thanks again to Waqar and your entire team. We appreciate you!

Cons: What I like least about it is .... the fact I didn't find it until last November!! There's nothing to NOT like about ContentStudio.io
In my opinion there is none better.

Overall: Absolutely saved me hours and hours with my content. The easiest tool I've ever had for finding highly relevant content. Made my life easier!!

Pros: Curation PLUS Social Media scheduling/posting in 1 platform. This is what we've been waiting for! There is no learning curve, if there is, it should be just 1 day. It makes our lives easier -- the team loves it!

Cons: So far I've nothing bad to say about this tool. I've been using it for barely a month now and it delivers perfectly. I love it!

Pros: Content Studio is an excellent content curation software which costs a fraction of the price of rivals such as Buzzsumo!

Find trending topics in your niche, use RSS feeds for your favourite sites, link all types of social media accounts to curate engaging content for your tribe and establish yourself as an authority in your niche.

There is even the option to do much of this with full automation if you like which could be incredibly powerful once you have managed to narrow down on highly focused keywords for your content. There are numerous automation "recipes" to help you to determine the most appropriate style of automation to use to ensure it is as effective as it can be.

Support has been very responsive thus far and are open to suggestions which is good!

In all honesty, I can probably ditch Buzzsumo and Buffer and just switch all my content curation to Content Studio in the future as it does it all under one roof.

All in all, a great platform to use for all your content curation and scheduling needs.

Cons: There's not a lot to not like if that makes sense! The UI is modern and clean, but it can be a bit slow and unresponsive at times, but this may be because they have just had a spike of new users joining through an AppSumo deal.

Sometimes the articles it pulls in are not that relevant (but to be fair, that is the case for all these curation softwares) but you can exclude keywords to make the logic better.

I have had issues using RSS feeds where I can only add a couple and then any attempt to add more results in an error saying that "this feed already exists," which obviously it doesn't. However, I have just got off a call with their support who says that this will be investigated and fixed soonest.

I wish there was a way to unshorten links on the fly, similar to Buffer, but there isn't.

So, only a few minor niggles.

Easy to find content that your audience related to and share in engaging ways.

Pros: The various sources of content and sharing capabilities. The support is great and the product has improved in the short time I've used it.

Cons: Wish Instagram capabilities were available - assuming is a limitation of the social network not this app?

Overall: Extra content for my audience and engagement from them.

I'm really impressed how easy it is to use contentstudio. Clear UI and with a lot of functions.

Pros: - Clear UI and a lot of functions to discover
- The suggestions tool is awesome. You can find a lot of great content. It's possible to find content with keywords and domain. (like buzzsumo does)
- Automation of social media posts via keywords or domain. There you can add many rules and find content that fits perfectly with my sites.
- Possibility to connect the medium blog

Cons: - Post to a Facebook group is not possible at the moment because of Facebook's API changes. Hope Facebook makes that possible again.

Overall: Social Media Management Tool. I have one tool to manage all my social media activities of my different websites. That is great and would highly recommend this tool to everyone.

Pros: I could easily replace Buzzsumo. I would give 5 stars to Features too but unfortunately, there's no integration with Instagram. However, I have been told by the customer service that they are working on adding it. So, great!

Cons: When sharing a post on LinkedIn the image does not look good. It stays small and shows it's from Amazon's servers. Unfortunately, this is not good and has to be fixed.

My experience with Content Studio up to now has been excellent, seems like a very powerful platform.

Pros: There are various different aspects that I like about this platform, one of the main ones being the fact that there is a feature where you can include keywords and domains that you want content to be pulled from.

However, you cannot only just include these keywords and domains you can also exclude keywords and domains meaning that you are able to filter your content from anything that is not relevant or could be inappropriate.

Cons: The only con about this software is the ease of use with Facebook settings/integration, however, this isn't really Content Studio's fault as it is Facebooks setting that can be a little confusing so this isn't really a con for Content Studio.

Overall: I and my team has gained a lot of various benefits from using this platform, the main one being that it has freed up a lot of our time to do other things than having to think about what we are going to post on our client's social media pages by setting up rules that allow us to filter the options to post appropriate content for them.

The whole process is very automated meaning that we don't have to worry about forgetting to post etc and I like the feature that allows you to plan how long the campaign will go on for but also allows you to have it recurring.

Pros: To "pick one thing" I like most about CS is too tough to worry over so how about my top FIVE...

1. Limitless, easily searchable, quality content from 1600+ builtin killer sources -and- the ability to add your own -and- Feedly Integration!

2. Each piece of content includes the source, FB and Pinterest Likes, numeric "hot" rating and buttons to either publish or save to Favs to consider later. There is even a preview button.

3. Generous number of social accounts and blogs you can post to at all membership levels. And "blog" means any blog including your own self hosted with a CS Plugin.

4. Campaign Automation - schedule posts to all your social accounts in a single weekly sitting (but it really is so interesting you'll want to be more manual!) The builtin Planner Calendar is great to view your posting plan from above.

5. Groups - this allows you to segregate (for example) your business Facebook, Twitter, Wordpress Blog etc from your personal accounts and post collectively to each. A truly inspired feature that says the people at ContentStudio think like users.

I mentioned Feedly Integration in #1 but it deserves a second mention because it is the pipe that an ocean of content designed by you flows to your Discovery Desktop from. An absolutely brilliant inclusion.

Finally - RePlug is fully one-click integrated! Why? Imagine hiding a retargeting pixel from FB, Twitter, LinkedIn etc in EVERY clickable link you post.

Support is all you want it to be!

Cons: Honestly... I do not have even a minor issue or complaint. That is worth a mention because it is rare.

Overall: Verified person making review. Easy.

I wish I had discovered this tool sooner. Easy to setup and discovering great content immediately

Pros: The user interface is nice and clear. All the main social channels covered. The content filters are so easy to use and to fine tune to get exactly what I need. Brand leakage is always an issue with curated content but these guys have it covered with their replug service and integration ... clever stuff!!

Cons: Not found anything yet that hasn't been covered or thought about. A few issues which I suggested like grouping topics ... but they then said it's coming up on their development road map which they have on Trello so I can see what's coming up .. very cool!

Overall: Targeted and relevant content that helps build our brand and helps keep us top of mind. This tool saves a lot of time.

This software makes life so much easier when it comes to posting.

Pros: I like the ease of use and that the team is always working to improve the software and make it better.

Cons: There is a little bit of a learning curve that is necessary. But even then, I don't feels it's anything unreasonable.

A great alternative to Buzzsumo + packed with time saving features

Pros: The content curation, and social analytics reporting showing the most popular posts are really useful. It is really easy to create lots of interesting content by pulling content, images, videos and more from the best sites out there, and publish on all our websites and channels.

Cons: There are a few improvements which could be made to make content studio even better including Crello integration, a few usability issues, and the ability to source content from Pinterest. But these are currently being worked on so looking forward to that.

Overall: Faster and better content creation, and content marketing.

Everything you need for Content Curation in one place.

Pros: The ease and the range of features are amazing. When doing marketing for a client, between CS and Replug, it's a complete service!! No need for anything more. And Representatives in support is a rock star. They took their time to demo the product even though they are working 18 your days!! :-) They very easily showed me how stacking 4 of the Pro's for lifetime Agency was worth every penny!

Cons: That I didn't think it of first!! Honestly, there are no cons.
