Content Curation – Simplified - Curate Content | ↬  Curate ᔥ Tools 'n' Tips | Scoop.it
The MacMillan Dictionary defines content curation as “the process of analysing and sorting Web content and presenting it in a meaningful and organized way around a specific theme”.
Susan Kay Daniels's insight:

I believe the diagram and information on this page breaks down content curation just about as well as I've seen so far. It states what "content curation is" and what it "is not". It gives an easy to understand diagram of the how curation builds value for all involved.


My love of curation is that it opens up so much more learning for me as I search through the internet, aggregating information and then curating what I find most interesting and useful. Hopefully, most useful for my readers as well.

Secrets of a Killer Blog Post: Images [infographic]

Secrets of a Killer Blog Post: Images [infographic] | ↬  Curate ᔥ Tools 'n' Tips | Scoop.it

You already know that well-researched, high-quality content is the backbone of a killer blog post. But don’t underestimate the importance of a strong visual component when you’re composing your latest and greatest update for your audience

The human brain processes images in as little as 13 milliseconds—less than the blink of an eye.

A post with an image is far more enticing to the bounce-happy readers of the Internet than one without, and is more likely to be shared on social media as well.

Robin Good's insight:

 

 

A growing number of big brands have started to utilize social media tools to aggregate and curate the best and most relevant voices talking about their products and offers and to bring them together into one unique online social media hub.

 

From Cisco to Intel, IBM and DELL, the understanding that both the customer and employees are the true, trusted voices of a company, will gradually replace the artificious, paid for and detached advertising heritage is slowly, but steadily growing.

 

Lee Odden writes about it: "Growing social participation is motivating many companies to aggregate content produced and curated by the brand’s own employees.


This is a compelling opportunity to harvest the brand’s own collective wisdom. A single destination for curated social content fuels a brand publisher model that supports brand storytelling, content marketing, PR and even SEO objectives." 

 

In this article you can find 10 real-world examples of social media hubs from big brands. Go explore them and see what are the traits and characteristics that make them so valuable to these companies.

 

 

Resourceful. Good examples and resources. 8/10

Social content curation is an important building block of your inbound marketing strategy.

 

If you have many clients for which you need to curate content, you need to have so many profiles for all the social media accounts etc for their respective industries. Any good tools for managing these and managing mentions and more across all the accounts.

 

When curating content, it is essential to perfectly categorize the main subject of your curation interest in subtopic. For instance, I subcategorize SEO into its different facets:

Content Curation:Tips, Tactics, Tools & Techniques You Need To Know

Content Curation:Tips, Tactics, Tools & Techniques You Need To Know | ↬  Curate ᔥ Tools 'n' Tips | Scoop.it

For this month's Net2 Think Tank, we asked you to share your tips, resources, and ideas about curating content at your organization or enterprise. Below, read the curated list of the community responses we received - and share your own tips in the comments!

 

Topic: What are your best practices for curating content? Share your tips, tactics, tools, and techniques for effectively curating to serve your audience. And, if you've written about curation in the past, share the link with us!

 

Here's a quick working definition to get us started: Content curation focuses on using the web to highlight important information in situations where information overload may be a problem. Many organizations today are writing on the web regularly to communicate with their audience. At the same time, information pollution is an increasing problem for the consumers of that content. As Will Coley explains, "when organizations offer clarity amidst the noise, they build trust among supporters"
