Streemian is a service that allows us to copy the upvote or downvotes of other Steemit users. This can be a great tool for curation purposes. If you like the work of some great curators like @curie, @liberosist or @acidyo you can follow them and earn some extra curation rewards while also helping out the good authors out there.
Here is a step by step guide on how to set up your Streemian account and how to follow your favorite curators.
Go to https://streemian.com and click on Register in the top right corner.
After you hit Register there will be three things you need to do before can join a trail.
This should take you about 5-10minutes depending on your speed.

Unlock Your Steemit Account
To get your Private active key go to your wallet in Steemit.
Click on permissions and then look for your Active key. Make sure you select your Private active key.
After you entered your Username and Private Active Key you will see two green check marks. If you do not see the two green check marks make sure you followed each step correctly and there and no spelling mistakes in your username (remember without the “@”).
Make sure you have your Private Active Key and not your Normal Active Key.

One last thing to check is that your “Voting Weight Sufficient for Voting” is enabled.
You can now start following curation trails.
To view the available trail click on Services and navigate to ** Curation Trail**.
