Content Curation Strategy By Steve Rosenbaum [Video]

[Shortened from Giuseppe Maurillo's scoop] ".. Steven Rosenbaum explained at the recent Streaming Media East conference in New York City. ...[that] curation [is] a way for site owners to present strong material to site visitors and cut through the clutter. "Content curators are distributors of collections, explained Rosenbaum. .... if you went ahead and made all the curators in the world go away, you'd still have this signal-to-noise problem... So, absolutely no way is curation the thing that is the enemy of creation. [...] A well-planned content curation strategy doesn't simply present a list of videos to site visitors. It presents a collection with personality..." "

Pinterest for News Is Here: It's Called NewsPeg

Pinterest for News Is Here: It's Called NewsPeg | About Content Curation | Scoop.it
Robin Good's insight:

 

Newspeg is Pinterest for the news. Interface, dialog boxes and most of the superficial stuff you interact with on NewsPeg is 99% identical to what you are used to on Pinterest, making it easy for anyone already familiar with the visual pinning giant to start pinning news in no time at all.

 

As expected, there is a standard browser bookmarklet, allowing you to capture news content on the fly. Like on Pinterest you can create as many thematic boards as you like and easily add stuff to them with a click of your mouse. All content you pin on NewsPeg can also be easily shared on Facebook and Twitter.

 

My comment: Supereasy to use and adopt, provides a news curation format that provides more view and less depth than other competitors, and which can have its advantages in many vertical niches. Definitely a good practicing and experimental ground for anyone needing to get his feet wet with news curation. 

 

P.S.: One small weakness I have run into with NewsPeg is that, news articles, often don't have much in terms of images or video, but NewsPeg, just like Pinterest, won't let you pin something that has no readily available visual content inside of it. I appreciate the value of visuals, but if I need to curate the news, is the tool that you should provide with some alternative solution for when I run into situations like these.

 

Free to use.

A Great Alternative to RebelMouse: Curate Your Social Media Hub with Pressly

A Great Alternative to RebelMouse: Curate Your Social Media Hub with Pressly | About Content Curation | Scoop.it

Robin Good's insight:

 

Pressly is a new web app which allows you to create a social hub, similar to what you can do with RebelMouse or Tint, where you can aggregate and curate your favorite content from your social media channels, web site as well as from your fans content.

 

The app can aggregate and curate content coming from Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIN, Instagram, Pinterest, YouTube, SoundCloud, Vimeo and from any RSS feed. 

You can easily search for specifick keywords, hashtags and users across any of your "connected" feeds and save any specific search for future use. You can also preview the results of any search and curate the items that you want to curate and publish in your hub in real-time or automatically.

 

Similarly to its growing number of competitors Pressly automatically generates a social hub that can be easily viewed across web, tablets and smartphones and that it's very easy to navigate.

 

Differently than RebelMouse, the content aggregated is not just excerpted or simply pointed to, but it is actually imported, stripped of anything outside the original text and images and presented in a new clean and highly readable format.

 

My comment: A solid content aggregation and curation tool and a valid alternative to RebelMouse. Great UI, ease of use and ability to search and find relevant content. Here there are some tangible margins of improvement in making the curator less constrained when searching and browsing results for new content.

 

Pressly offers a free version with the possibility of using your own domain name, Google Analytics integration and up to 10,000/month views. The PRO version, adds support for capturing email leads, the options of using standard ads, up to 100,000 views and analytics at $499/mo.

Capture Any Content from the Web and Organize Into Boards with ScissorsFly

Capture Any Content from the Web and Organize Into Boards with ScissorsFly | About Content Curation | Scoop.it

Robin Good's insight:

 

Scissorsfly is a great new web app which allows you to "photograph" any screen or part of it and to collect and organize these pictures into Pinterest-like boards.

 

The capture functionality allows you to not just to pick images available on a web page as you would do with Pinterest but it allows you to clip any part of a web page or a full visible screen as you may see fit.

 

Differently than on Pinterest, the collected items can be easily arranged, positioned and resized on the board.

 

Scissorsfly provides a Chrome browser extension (Firefox and Safari coming soon) that once clicked provides a small toolbar with all of the key commands available.

 

Free to use.

 

Excellent capture and collect tool, provides lots of the original functionalities available in the now defunct Clipboard.com. Unfortunately there is no ability to capture a full web page, from top to bottom, but outside of this, I really found Scissorsfly to be an excellent tool for capturing and curating ay type of content available online.

STRATEGY: 4 Types of Content Every Site Needs

STRATEGY: 4 Types of Content Every Site Needs | About Content Curation | Scoop.it

...the vast majority of sites need four key types of content:

content to entertain: content which has been created to entertain might not be directly related to your products/services, however in order to do its job, it does need to appeal to your target audience. 

This sort of content has an emotional rather than rational appeal. It’s the sort of content that’s very shareable (and deliberately so) - the more it’s shared the further your reach.

content to educate: it does a similar job to content to entertain - it allows you to reach people at the very top of the funnel. However, whereas content to entertain has an emotional appeal, content to educate has a rational appeal. As before, it’s very shareable.content to persuade: it nudges people gently along the path to conversion (whatever a conversion might mean for your site - this could be a purchase, an enquiry, a call back request, etc). Content to persuade uses an emotional rather than rational appeal.content to convert: content created with conversions in mind in order to close the deal. This content typically uses a rational rather than emotional appeal.Why do you need both emotional & rational appeal?

Some people respond better to an emotional appeal, and some respond better to a rational appeal. In order to cover all the angles it’s best to have a spread of content with both emotional and rational appeal.

In some instances you’ll need to use different types of content on the same page.

Curate Your Favorite Web Destinations Visually with Wibki

Robin Good's insight:

 

Wibki is a free web app which allows you to easily organize a series of visual "start pages" from which to access your favorite web sites, resources and apps.

 

Wibki does an excellent job of making it very easy to add and edit new sites to your visual start pages, and it automatically fetches the logo of each one.

 

You can create as many "start pages" (or tabs) as you like, so that you can keep your favorite web sites organized into different thematic categories. Individual cells can be easily edited, removed or dragged nto different positions.

 

My comments: An excellent tool to keep and organize in a handy way your favorite web sites. The web site icons and the simple and clean organization make this apparently simple visual bookmarking tool a very effective start page builder and web destinations manager. 

 

Free to use.

 

In private beta.

Create, Publish and Curate Your Company Social Hub with Uberflip

Create, Publish and Curate Your Company Social Hub with Uberflip | About Content Curation | Scoop.it
Robin Good's insight:

 

 

Uberflip is a new web publishing tool that allows a company to easily create a social hub populated with the most relevant content coming from their main media properties, including blogs, RSS feeds, social media channels, images and videos, presentations and PDF documents.

 

Uberflip publishing metaphor is the "hub" in which, similarly to Rebelmouse and Pressly you can create multiple channels where you either aggregate or curate theme-specific content.

 

Among Uberflip unique features there is the ability to import and convert PDF documents into editable flipbooks, an array of widgets that can be added to integrate more functionalities (e.g.: Disqus comments) and a call-to-action feature allowing you to integrate customizable and elegant subscription boxes that directly connect to your newsletter provider (e.g.: Malchimp). 

 

Check my test site to get an idea of what you can do with it: http://robingood.uberflip.com/h/ ;

 

My comment: Compared to Rebelmouse, Pressly, Uberflip is a tough contender. Its key strengths are the elegant and clean output design, which displays excellently also on tablets and smartphones and the breadth of features for curating and collecting content (e.g.: custom collections). Uberflip is also the only tool of this kind that integrates a PDF to flipbook conversion engine, allowing you to integrate any company PDF into one or more collections in a beautiful format to view.

 

The Basic version, which allows for one hub with multiple channels, one custom collection and one CTA costs $49.95/month. Higher priced versions at 199 and 499/mo allow for using your custom domain, more collections, CTAs and additional features including analytics and other features.    

 

Pricing info: http://www.uberflip.com/pricing ;

 

Free 14-day trial.

How To Use Evernote: The Missing Manual

How To Use Evernote: The Missing Manual | About Content Curation | Scoop.it
Are you a digital packrat? Are you in need of a searchable repository for everything you want to recall later?

Evernote is an invaluable tool and one you need if you haven't used it before.

This  Manual will help you  get you started and help you use it like a professional.

 

As information becomes more plentiful, we are bombarded with relentless forms of media 24/7, such as blog posts, videos and photos. Our computer hard drives are also getting bigger and bigger (500GB hard drives are not uncommon). This means we have a huge amount of media material on our computers and no practical way in which to organize it all.

Your brain can’t keep up with what it has to remember.

 

Evernote brings order to that chaos. Everything you need to remember can now be stored in your Evernote account for future browsing and searching.

Mark O’Neill, editor at MakeUseOf , takes you through everything you need to know about Evernote:

    What are the best apps for Evernote?    Is a premium account worth it?    What are the best add-ons/plugins for Evernote?    All the best tips and tricks.

Let Your Readers Select What They Want To Get From Your RSS Feed with SpecificFeeds

Robin Good's insight:

 

SpecificFeeds is a free web app which allows you to provide the opportunity to your RSS readers to subscribe only to the type of news and stories they are interested into by allowing them to select tags, keywords and authors they want to read about.

 

You simply submit your RSS feed to SpecificFeeds and the service automatically creates a web page and an icon that you can share or publish on your website to help those that want to subscribe to your news, but who prefer to pre-select topics, tags or authors they like to see.

 

My comment: SpecificFeeds acts as a RSS filtering and distribution service providing a useful benefit to those using it. Just like on Twitter (until Custom Timelines) the fact that you subscribe to an author or a web magazine, doesn't mean you want to read everything she posts. SpecificFeeds helps both web publishers and readers reduce the noise and increase the signal when using RSS feeds.

 

Free to use.

Here is my "specific feed" that you can customize: http://www.specificfeeds.com/robin-good-sharewood-news ;

Worth a try, easy to customize was my first impression

Stephen Dale's curator insight, November 18, 2013 9:11 AM

A useful app for syndicating RSS content using tags, author or keywords. Fills a gap in the market for this type of functionality (not available in Feedburner) and nice to see that some people still see RSS as a viable means of consuming information. 

Adam Donkus's curator insight, November 18, 2013 1:01 PM

Carlos Bisbal's curator insight, October 31, 2013 2:10 PM

Captura cualquier parte de una página Web o post para incrustarla en cualquier lugar con Kwout

 

Kwout es una aplicación web que te permite capturar cualquier parte de cualquier página web, incluyendo el texto y las imágenes y te permite publicarla fácilmente en tu sitio, blog o en su canal de medios sociales preferido.

Para utilizar Kwout debes instalar un complemento o extensión de Firefox o Chrome y cada vez que veas algún contenido que deseas "citar" debes hacer clic en el botón "Kwout" y luego seleccionas la parte de la página que deseas capturar con el ratón.

En este punto puedes seleccionar si deseas compartir, tweetear o si deseas integrar la cita seleccionada en el lugar que prefieras.

Una característica única hace posible que todos los enlaces contenidos en la "captura" permanezcan en plena actividad y te lleven al lugar indicado al hacer clic.

Al mismo tiempo todas las "citas" y archivos que crees con Kwout pueden generar automáticamente una página que muestra el historial de los contenidos citados.

PS: Esta herramienta no es nueva y no ha sido actualizada desde 2011, pero todavía está trabajando muy bien.

De uso libre.
