Social Media Curation Guide | ↬  Curate ᔥ Tools 'n' Tips | Scoop.it

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"

Brian Yanish - MarketingHits.com's curator insight, May 5, 2013 8:46 AM

Thanks Marty for sharing.


SHARING is a key part of this web social economy we are living in right now. It started with content, (message boards, blogs) and now has moved on to cars (Zipcar), bikes (Citi Bike) and beds (AirBnB). 


We are becoming more connected than ever before and OUR online profiles, that WE and OTHERS create about US is driving this sharing economy.


Marty, I know you and I have never met in person but via Scoop.it and social sharing we are connected. Interesting how business is changing.

Martin (Marty) Smith's comment, May 5, 2013 7:29 PM
Agree Brian. When SHARING is at the core many things change such as: competition, how we scale, how we make money and how and what we support.

In a social sharing time we compete in a more collaborative way where rising tides lift all boats. I was shocked to be in a meeting the other day where someone was pithing the idea of unilateral zero sum benefit. Shocked because everyone I work with get it - that doing the right thing is increasingly the right thing to do. I wasn't going to convince this particular manager that WE are stronger than I or ME, but most of us are getting it and that is one of the things driving Scoop.it's success :).M

Curation: Understanding the Social Fire Hose

Curation: Understanding the Social Fire Hose | ↬  Curate ᔥ Tools 'n' Tips | Scoop.it

What is especially interesting to us, is the curation piece – more often than not, performed manually in an increasing number of newsrooms. As FastCompany explained in their article, when an event unfolds in real time, most tweets go to an unfiltered hashtag that is trending at the time. Hence the fire hose theory – millions of tweets spewing out – different languages, mostly personal, some from people actually there, authorities, governments, media outlets, fake media outlets…you name it. And then someone has to make sense of it all – but if they do, the reward is possibly the most accurate, unbiased real-time account of an event you’re ever likely to get.


Susan Kay Daniels's insight:

A very interesting article about modern social media curation and how it is used by news media because of the "acurate, unbiased real-time account of an event". It appears that social media is a top tool of news media...hmmm.

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.

Prof. Hankell's curator insight, August 26, 2013 4:52 AM
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.

Truth be known, every time we "search" a topic online, we are aggregating information that we can then curate to meet our individual needs and wants.
