40 Social Media Curation Sites and Tools | All Things Curation |
Today, with the exponential growth of social networks and blogs, it can be overwhelming searching for information on the internet. As a result, the act of filtering, selecting, reviewing and providing commentary with a perspective on an article, or collection of articles, have become increasingly important. This is known as social media curation


Be sure to also see Robin Good's  valuable  feedback providing additional clarification regarding the list.

Martin you need to do a little of what the article says - add your own perspective! I read the info and thought you had written it until I went to the link.

Hi Carey, I consider as a tool to provide interesting information and not really as a curation tool, but, maybe you're right and I should reconsider my opinion about my approach! Thank you for your feedback.

How to Curate Addictive Content & Build a Loyal Following

How to Curate Addictive Content & Build a Loyal Following | All Things Curation |

Jeff Bullas wrote this piece and as always, he gives you some great ideas on how to strategically use content that adresses the needs of your audience.


He refers to blogging but the same applies when you're curating content and using 10 different addictive types of content that attracts readership like a magnet. 


This is when:


**You're providing solutions through content that addresses their pain points 


**When you consistently add your knowledge and expertise to the mix, you can become the "Go To Portal" for your subscribers.




"One thing to keep in mind is that every business or reader has day to day challenges and problems that they want help in solving. Helping people find solutions and ideas is an easy way to provide addictive content"


Here are a few addictive content types.


**When you look at these and the others, be thinking about ways you can use these themes to find and curate content for your audience.


Mega Lists

**A long list of tips, tactics and answers that provide people with a resource that maps out many ideas that they can go back to as a reference have proven to work well.



**The latest research provides signposts for future planning and validates and lends credibility to strategies.


**Research does need to be presented with well formatted articles that allow skimming and scanning for “time poor” excecutives!


****Bullet points, screen shots and subtitles are all important elements to provide easy reading.

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

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.
