At what point does the exponential increase in content production make the cost of trying to grab and hold attention no longer cost-effective?
Are you sure you want to delete this scoop?
Quite a stir was made a week ago, when Mark Schaefer published his Content Shock article on the businessesgrow blog.
A paraphrasing of the question he asked was, ‘At what point does the exponential increase in content production make the cost of trying to grab and hold attention no longer cost-effective?’
The topic resonated me as well as many others and the responses were swift, including Shel Holtz, Sonia Simone of Copyblogger and Marty Smith, the first two of which are discussed in the piece published in curatti.com (Marty’s piece was published too late to be included).
We don’t feel that Content Shock is something that any of us need to be concerned over.
Let’s not forget that
“As content continues to grow, search keeps pace by constantly improving. “
“Semantic Search may be beyond most people now, but it will become a part of everyone’s life even if in the same mysterious way that a car engine helps that wonderful machine convey us from point A to point B.”
And amongst those who stand to gain from the situation are:
“Discerning Curators who understand the needs of their readers because they are consumers of the same content, only sharing what blows them away!”
… a statement which is at least partly backed up here by an end user perspective:
“When I need to research something, I go to a few trusted sources and get what I want, when I want it.”
The message to readers is: “If someone is out there filtering the deluge of articles that you might otherwise have to work your own way through…. it removes the burden of you having to deal with the ever growing content mountain.”
So is Content Shock real? With all the excellent curators and filtering tools available ....... Only for those who insist on reading every source for themselves

This thought-provoking piece was written by Marty Smith who is one of our top scoopers here who knows what he's talking about when it comes to curation and why it is disruptive in this marketplace.
Marty gives you some great tips on how to use Scoopit to evaluate what works and what doesn't with your audience and more....
"When everyone is doing something as complicated as content marketing quality goes down. My ratios used to be about 50% curation to 50% creation. we can afford to lower creation now for two reasons:
Snippet Curation with a powerful tool like Scoop.it moves your Internet marketing away from the pack. The pack is creating content faster and faster without a full understanding of what works
Most content marketers add NOISE in the hope screaming louder will make content stand out. It never does.

Content Marketing Tips
I've said this before, and will repeat...Contet Curation is not just for the Marketeers. I think it is as yet a vastly untapped skill/resource/process for Enterprise information professionals (IM/KM) in delivering themed, value--added and decision-ready content for their internal customers. #kmers #curation
