Content, content, content. Content makes the web go round......While those blog posts are necessary in order for you to be a successful blogger, they do NOT all have to be written by you. You need content to make your blog successful, but it does not have to be written by you.

 

Interesting and comprehensive article on how to monetize content and blogging. It looks at it from a purely commercial aspect. I would be intrigued on your perspective on the topic.

3 Ways Content “Curation” Can Boost Content “Creation”

3 Ways Content “Curation” Can Boost Content “Creation” | All Things Curation | Scoop.it

The key commonality between content creation and curation is that they are both used to provide targeted quality content that will enhance visibility, engagement and, in turn, conversions.
It goes without saying that the same criteria must be applied to identify the topics used in both cases. That’s why; content curation can help in refining created content in three different ways.

When Everyone is Tweeting, Who is Paying Attention?

When Everyone is Tweeting, Who is Paying Attention? | All Things Curation | Scoop.it

Food for thought from Toddi Gutner for Business2Community:

 

I found this piece particularly interesting and wanted to call your attention to it. It's one of those things we all experience everyday, but do we really stop to ask ourselves this question:

 

****Are You Mobilizing Communities or Just a Voice in the Crowd?

 

I've personally covered events online, tweeting the main points live and although I was able to filter and capture the essence of what was going on, I had to go back and really absorb the information and then try to apply it to my business effectively. (not always an easy task) :-)

 

It's a juggling act but one I think we're all experiencing on one level or another.

 

Excerpt:

 

Continuous Partial Attention (CPA) is the process of paying simultaneous but superficial attention to a number of sources of incoming information.

 

This term, coined by writer and consultant Linda Stone in 1998, aptly describes the scene at the recent Council of Public Relations Firms Critical Issues Forum on Social Revolution:

 

This is what particularly caught my attention:

 

**What was the unintended consequence (UC) - these being outcomes that are not intended by a purposeful action?

 

**They can be positive, negative or have a perverse effect contrary to what was originally intended.

 

 

****So are there any unintended consequences to compulsively tweeting from an event or otherwise?

 

This is a question I have yet to answer. It is sort of like waiting to see what the side effects of a drug will be years after it has been approved.

 

One UC of CPA may be that peoples’ attention spans (already truncated by USA Today and sound bite television) and

 

**related ability for analytic thought will be reduced to nanoseconds.

 

I'd love to hear your Thoughts?

I just rescooped this article because I found it in another source, but here I look further into your collection and find it. I'm curating on the topic information overload and coping skills. I believe that curation can help you pay attention. I experienced this myself .. I was a conference. Many people were tweeting. I was tracking it with storify - doing content curation in real time with twitter versus tweeting helped me pay attention, quickly put together a coherrent record of what happened and make it unstandable to people not in the room.

@BethKanter
I have covered a few conferences in real-time and it definitely makes you pay attention on more than one level. Being able to put it in a cohesive manner helping people understand what's happening is an art in itself and something you do very well.

This year, I am also teaching my kids to exploit the best curation efforts of others as search tools.

In fact, curation tools present an exciting new genre of search tool--strategies for scanning the real-time environment, as well as opportunities for evaluating quality and relevance in emerging information landscapes.

Because a couple of our seniors selected autism as an area of interest for their senior project, I’ll use this topic as a sample search in seven of my favorite new search tools.

YouTube Reinvents Itself - Massive Relaunch Focusing More on Curation

YouTube Reinvents Itself - Massive Relaunch Focusing More on Curation | All Things Curation | Scoop.it

Janko Roettgers wrote this piece for Giagom announcing YouTube's complete overhaul of its site.

 

**Putting channels front and center in an attempt to become the Internet’s answer to cable TV.

 

**The new design features a completely revamped home page that focuses on a user’s video subscriptions and pulls in video recommendations from social networks like Facebook and Google+.

 

Here's what caught my attention:

 

****The pages of video publishers are also getting a significant face lift, emphasizing the notion of subscribing to channels and focusing more on filtering and curation.

 

****“Curators are going to be be really great for organizing this massive amount of content that YouTube has,” said the site’s channels product manager A.J Crane.

Real-Time News Via Twitter Combined With Curation Tools Can Produce A Powerful Form Of Journalism | GigaOM

Real-Time News Via Twitter Combined With Curation Tools Can Produce A Powerful Form Of Journalism | GigaOM | All Things Curation | Scoop.it

Excerpt from article:

 

When the Arab Spring demonstrations were under way in Egypt’s Tahrir Square and reports were streaming out through Twitter and Facebook and text messages and cellphone videos, it was easy to feel superior to the Egyptian government. How could they not realize that information can no longer be contained by blockades or even internet blackouts when everyone has the power to publish?

 

Jon Mitchell at Read/Write Web described in his post about the use of social media around the Occupy protests, real-time news via Twitter and Flickr and other services, when combined with curation tools can produce a powerful form of journalism that equals — or even exceeds — what traditional sources can provide.

 

One of the real threats to traditional journalism that come out of this phenomenon (if there are any) is that the ability to report and publish and broadcast the news in real time from events such as the Zucotti Park protests can turn anyone into what journalists have traditionally been: namely, a trusted filter for the news. Mitchell describes "how one college student created a summary of the event that got tens of thousands of views in a matter of hours" and was embedded by the Washington Post. Does that make him a journalist? Of course it does...

When Google Reader made its recent changes, the first thought many people had was what RSS reading options were there?
