#NYT Launches #Pinterest-Like Tool

The New York Times’ R&D Labs launched a new tool allowing readers to collect passages, articles, videos and other NYT content and share it on Facebook and Twitter. paidContent compares the new tool, Compendium, to Pinterest, only with more text, and Storify with a single source.

The collections can be filtered by topic. paidContent reports that most of the collections so far have been created by NYT employees, including ComPANDium—“an attempt to catalog all the pandas we mention in the Times.”
