Content Creator vs Content Curator: Is Social Media Sharing The Same Thing as Content Curation?

Robin Good: Interesting discussion and video: is social media sharing equivalent to "curation"?

Is it more important to create or to curate? 

 

"The SalesChaosTV guys, Dan Waldschmidt and Todd Schnick, bounce around content curation vs. content creation as means to an end in social media marketing today."

 

"Content creation or content curation? Are you a curator if you are retweeting the content of others?

Should you be retweeting it at all if you haven’t read it?"

 

Good points being made. 8/10

Will go read this, but what was the answer?
Robin Good's comment, June 24, 2012 12:56 AM
Hi Beth, the answer is not clear-cut and the discussion needs to go on.

Social sharing, according to some, is a light form of curation, but to me the argument doesn't hold up, as curation is not determined by the sharing act, but by the purpose with which you collect and bring together information items that inform, or solve a problem on a specific topic for a specific audience.
Eric Moran's curator insight, December 22, 2012 11:05 AM

Great point made here on both sides of the issue.

Product Curation: Bookmark, Organize And Share Your Favorite Products With Wanelo

Product Curation: Bookmark, Organize And Share Your Favorite Products With Wanelo | Blogging and Lovin' It | Scoop.it

Robin Good: Wanelo is a product curation platform. Similar to GetVega, Curisma and Polyvore it specializes in facilitating the collection of commercial products images and information, to create wish-lists, shopping lists or grassroots buyer-guides. 

 

From the official site: "Wanelo is social store curated by the community. Users post, collect and organize products and follow people and stores they like.

 

Wanelo comes from the words WAnt, NEed and LOve."

 

From the TechCrunch review: "Wanelo is a site that allows users to bookmark and share their favorite products via a grid layout and high-res imagery.

 

The startup allows you to follow your Facebook friends in addition to top site users — resulting in a more personalized product feed than that of just celebrity selections.

 

To post an item to Wanelo enter a product URL, tag the item with categories, and add price and other details.

 

Users can browse through Wanelo items by popularity, recency, or by people and stores that they follow."

Curating Your Sources Is As Important As Curating Your Content

Curating Your Sources Is As Important As Curating Your Content | Blogging and Lovin' It | Scoop.it
Robin Good: Gideon Rosenblatt has a good article out on his blog Alchemy of Change, explaining how important it is for curators to explore and expand their news and content sources to avoid becoming another megaphone for what everyone else is already sharing.

He writes: "...when it comes to networking information, curating content is only half of the problem.

 

The other half is curating people.

 

When we take the time to build interesting, diverse circles on Google+ or lists on Twitter, we improve the way we filter information. It’s up to us.

We can pursue strategies that concentrate the stream of content into just the same old stuff, or we can go out of our way to increase the diversity – and the quality – of what comes to us.

 

It’s all in the people we follow.

 

...

 

In the world of the information networker, curating content is only half the game. The other half is curating the curators.


And in that power to choose our connections, rests our ultimate power to reshape our information filter bubbles and radically improve our perception of reality."

 

Rightful. 8/10
