FlashIssue is one of the Web 2.0 tools I found for curating your blog and other online articles easily into a social newsletter. FlashIssue is a Web 2.0 application that lets teachers and students quickly and effectively use their blog and promoting content for email newsletters and social media campaigns. It allows you take content you have published online and blend it with content you find into a social newsletter in minutes. The newsletter is sent through email and shared through Linkedln, Facebook, and Twitter and Facebook. Also, FashIssue integrates With Gmail. A Chrome Plug-in, FlashIssue Clipper & Web App, allows you to easily save blog and Web articles as you browse for later inclusion in your social newsletter.
In the past, it is quite painful and time consuming to get your own blog posts and other interesting Web articles into an email newsletter. I found FlashIssue can get the job done quickly and easily. After signing up a new account, I was able to create the first issue of my social newsletter, Learning Technology Monthly, in 5 minutes. Quite impressive!
