Since news broke that Salesforce acquired Web clipping service Clipboard, users have been seeking a similar service to fulfill their Web curation needs. If you’re a former Clipboard user looking for a replacement service, here’s the word on the street: Keeeb.com is a great place for you to migrate before Clipboard closes its doors for good on June 30.
You may be wondering why the web needs yet another clipping service? Hell, part of me wonders the same thing. But at the very least, Keeeb has a leg up on other services with its unique approach. Like a Pinterest for all media types, Keeeb enables you to clip (“keeeb”) multiple types of elements including text, photos, and videos and group them (your “keeebies”) almost any way you like. It’s this flexibility that makes Keeeb appealing. Let’s take a look.
How Keeeb Works
Keeeb says in their video, “Our mission is to make working with online content effective and beautiful.” In this Keeeb certainly succeeds. As you’ll notice in their overview, saving web content like text, videos, and images is as simple as activating the Keeeb button for your bookmark toolbar. When you find something you want to keeeb just click the Keeeb button, highlight your video, image, or text, and click “save.”
Your keeebs are organized by pages. If you desire even deeper organization, within pages you can group keeebies by topic, rearrange keeebies, and add comments. You can also move keebies between pages. By default every page you create is private. If you’re up for sharing, however, you can click to make your page public or use Keeeb’s handy sharing tool to share you page via Facebook and Twitter.

Hi Lauren, here is the update. We finished the importer for Clipboard. Now Clipboard users can import their current Clipboard data and give them a new home at Keeeb. Here is our post about how it will work: http://blog.keeeb.com/post/50367925136/dear-clipboarders-get-ready
Great article for a great service. Thank you very much.
keeeb is definitely beautiful! just wanted to share a little different concept of link curation called WikiPacks – http://www.wikipacks.com. it’s more research and collaboration oriented than keeeb. we launched it just last week and got really great feedback so far! let me know what you guys think.
