The Future of Social Media: 38 Experts Share Their Predictions For 2012

The Future of Social Media: 38 Experts Share Their Predictions For 2012 | All Things Curation | Scoop.it

Brian Rice wrote this piece for Business 2 Community

 

 

"What is in store for 2012? With only two months remaining until the end of the year, there is no better time than now to pause and take a look towards the future."

 

 

 

Here are a few things that caught my attention:

 

Elias Roman, CEO and co-founder of Songza

 

First, the easy prediction: more and more of the information we consume on a daily basis (from news to product reviews to entertainment) will come via the social media channels we have opted into and, more specifically, from the information filters we have chosen to subscribe to in those channels.

 

****In the short term, more information will come from more sources delivered through fewer channels.

 

Tony Ellison CEO from Shoplet.com

 

****Social media can insert the missing human touch and allow mankind to tap into the full potential of the internet. Because of this, it is going to transform eCommerce as we know it.

 

Loren McDonald, VP of Industry Relations at Silverpop

 

The convergence of mobile, social, local and email, or “mocial,” is forcing marketers to change the way they interact with customers and prospects to ensure that they are where their customers and prospects are, all the time. In 2012 and beyond, savvy marketers will need to cross promote between all channels.

5 Key Roles for Content Marketing Success in 2012

5 Key Roles for Content Marketing Success in 2012 | All Things Curation | Scoop.it

According to the latest research from the Content Marketing Institute and MarketingProfs, 90% of non-media companies create original content, in some shape or form, to attract and retain customers. Yes, we are indeed all publishers today.

 

The biggest challenge? Creating compelling content.

 

Let’s face it … content marketing is a new muscle for most organizations.

 

Most brands have been doing things the same way for so long that thinking like a publisher is, well, quite taxing. Worse yet, we aren’t set up for publishing; we’re set up for traditional marketing practices set up in the usual organizational silos. That means we might not have an awareness of the types of roles needed to succeed with managing the content marketing process...

Shel describes how the media landscape is changing and how curation can help today's businesses demonstrate expertise, gain visibility and build thought leadership, whilst also minimizing the risk in social media engagement.

 

Shel talks about the curation process: from the identification of valuable content and sources to the provision of context and the final display. There has been a proliferation of online tools that can help with the curation process, ranging from free solutions to large enterprise solutions. 


The presentation wraps up with a number of examples, from the corporate level down to the individual, and the importance of curation in internal communications as the amount of information within the average company’s firewall mushrooms.

Content Curation: The Future of SEO

Content Curation: The Future of SEO | All Things Curation | Scoop.it

“Content is King.” It will always be the chief motivating force behind the Internet.

But most recently, content curation has increasingly becoming popular. The talk about content curation has been spreading like wildfire since last year. It may be a great alternative to blogging, or an addition to build upon an existing blog.


Content curation aims to determine, showcase and make known to the public a collection of the “best of the internet” for a specific niche. The main concept is to add value to the information you came across and would like to share to with your online community. 

 

The model of content curation is very simple — when you come across something that you find interesting, beneficial, and appropriate to your site, you can cite a passage from the information, and then discuss it, react to it, add to it, or question it, as long as you provide the link to the information...

How is social curation different from collaborative filtering?

How is social curation different from collaborative filtering? | All Things Curation | Scoop.it
Answer (1 of 2): The main difference to me is that curation is more than filtering (whichever form you give it): curation is about giving context.

A filter will select content. A collaborative filter, content based on what others and you did.

Note from the Curator of All Things Curation: Shirley Williams (socialmediapearls)

Note from the Curator of All Things Curation: Shirley Williams (socialmediapearls) | All Things Curation | Scoop.it

I am absolutely fascinated about social media curation! Like anything else I am fascinated about, I tend to dive right into the fascination, by researching first and if I find myself actually doing it then I know I am really serious about it. I can’t help myself, it is the way I am wired. Some call it DNA.

 

In the Scoop.it community, I have also found like-minded colleagues. Wonderful! Consequently this magazine is as its title suggests: All Things Curation. Selected articles of the role, tools, how-tos and leaders in this very new field. I am collecting, researching and taking you along with me- this is Phase I. To fulfil my opinionated-self and fulfill the role of a curator, Phase II will also share my perspective as this competency matures.

 

Enjoy
Shirley

People no longer seek out news. Instead, it often comes to them through social networks. Journalism and information in general is all becoming more social, and this trend will only continue. So, it’s important for people in the media to think about how to make their content social and how to use their social networks to their advantage.

 

Social media is speedy and empowering, yet journalists are still needed to help make sense of it all. Here are 15 ways journalists and media publications have used social media, including examples using Facebook, Twitter, Storify, Foursquare and Google Plus....

New Research Finds the Curation vs Creation Sweet Spot | All Things Curation | Scoop.it
Whether you’re on a first date, meeting new people at a dinner party, or making it rain on Twitter, it’s just not a good idea to go on and on about yourself. It’s just awkward.Conventional social media marketing wisdom suggests that brands should avoid being overly self-promotional. Thus, brands seek to “be a part of the conversation” by sharing links that are relevant to their followers but often not specifically about their products and services.

Curation and Creation Are Both Important

Curation and Creation Are Both Important | All Things Curation | Scoop.it

How many times have you thought, “I wish I would have been a part of the Old Spice creation?” Or a part of creating any campaign gone viral? Perhaps you just wish you were creating daily content that was popular, meaningful and significant in and whatever you do.


Have you ever stopped to consider that maybe dabbling into more curation would be just as satisfying and effective?


The social space and world in general are full of people who want to create. Creating – the creative process – and fresh, new ideas make the marketing and business world go ’round. But what happens when this awesomely created content gets buried? If no one is there to collect it all into one place, it is likely to quickly go missing. That is, unless we acknowledge the power of curation.


Curation is not something for “those who can’t create.” It should not be thought of as a B-level social task. Remember, part of our jobs as chief sharers is to save people time. Curating does this...

Can Newspapers Re-Invent Themselves As Data Curated Platforms?

Can Newspapers Re-Invent Themselves As Data Curated Platforms? | All Things Curation | Scoop.it

Robin Good curated this piece and has some very interesting observations in addition the article.

 

 

Mathew Ingram makes a great point in this post I discovered thanks to Morten Myrstad: one way for Media groups to re-invent themselves is to think of themselves as data platforms and not newspapers any more.

 

 

Great point.

 

But I see one more: opening up to other news platforms too even if competing.

 

I appreciate this clearly faces cultural resistance but if you think of it really as a platform, you shouldn't be afraid to interface it with your competitors' just like Twitter has a LinkedIn App.

 

One missed opportunity I see that reflects this is the WSJ Facebook App: it's a great concept to let your readers remix the headlines but why not do it with non-WSJ content too? I'd love to see through a crowd sourced effort from the most WSJ active readers and curators how some WSJ-news relate to other news from say the FT or the Economist.

 

I’m going to make my music-industry analogy again (can’t escape my background…) but right now media groups think of building a record store or a radio station with their own artists. Imagine a radio that would play only Universal Music Group artists? It would suck, right? Yet, that’s what most media are today.

 

Don't you think the industry needs bold moves like this?
