CONTENT CURATION: How do apps like flipboard and sites like Hypebeast
, etc, generate their curated content? I often see the same content on each. Surely they're not downloading images and writing blurbs by hand. Right? I assume at least part of the process is automated. But how?

I'm working on creating a website that is part original content and part curated content, with the curated content being pretty simple: an image, a title and a blurb, linked back to the original article.
I'm using wordpress, at least for the original content. What are ways of generating the curated content? I'm not looking for it to be automatic though. I want to be able to filter the content to choose what gets added. The question is, how?
This need not be about wordpress plugins. It's fine if it is, but I'm open to other ways of accomplishing this that don't involve wordpress.
