Content Curation: From Information To Knowledge [Video]

Robin Good: Start this video clip at 1':42" (up to 3':30") and you can get a pretty good idea of what a content curator does and why what he does has so much to do with sense-making, making things understandable for others and ultimately extracting contextualized "meaning" from information "as is".

 

Must-see. Excellent. 9/10

 

 

P.S.: Thanks to Howard Rheingold for spotting this clip and sharing it.

Looking for Content Curation Tools? Here's Where To Start: The Official Content Curation Tools Universe Map

Looking for Content Curation Tools? Here's Where To Start: The Official Content Curation Tools Universe Map | building community through social media | Scoop.it

Robin Good: Everytime I see a new post or article claiming to list the best content curation tools I know I am in for some disappointment.

 

Most of these lists just pick up names from other lists without even bothering to check, test or verify what these tools actually do, whether they are still available. Unfortunately the rush to put out "curated" list of tools and services has created more misinformation than useful lists. 

 

But if you, like me, are on the lookout for new and effective tools to curate your own content or the one of your customers, I have created a comprehensive map of all the curation tools available online and I keep it fresh and updated almost on a daily basis.

 

The map presently lists over 250 content curation tools which you can navigate much more easily than it was possible on my earlier versions of this map.

 

On the right side of the map you will find all of the news and content curation tools available online today. On the left side, you can find bookmarking, link lists builders, clippers and lots of tools to operate with RSS feeds (which are still at the heart of a curator's job).

Full map: http://bit.ly/ContentCurationUniverse  

Share it.

Survival Of The Fitting: 10 Important Trends To Survive Digital Darwinism

Survival Of The Fitting: 10 Important Trends To Survive Digital Darwinism | building community through social media | Scoop.it

"Digital Darwinism is a phenomenon when technology and society evolve faster than the ability to adapt. And, it threatens rigid and traditional practices everywhere."

 

To survive Digital Darwinism takes understanding of course, but more importantly, it takes leadership…it takes courage.

 

The future of business and customer and employee engagement is built upon a foundation of vision, trust, significance, and relationships. Set on this foundation are 10 pillars for which transformation is braced.

 

As Leon C. Megginson once said in paraphrasing Charles Darwin’s Origin of the Species, “It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent that survives. It is the one that is most adaptable to change.”

 

10 Tenets to Survive Digital Darwinism

 

*Vision

*Strategy

*Culture

*People

*Innovation

*Influence

*Localization

*Intelligence

*Philanthropic Capitalism

*An ode to leadership

 

Once you listen, not monitor, but truly listen to customer activity and observe online behavior, you cannot help but feel both empathy and harmony. And naturally, the response it begets is only human.

Who Do You Want Your Customers to Become? A better biz story

Who Do You Want Your Customers to Become? A better biz story | building community through social media | Scoop.it
Right answers to wrong questions virtually guarantee failure. Innovators betting on "out of the box" thinking or "faster, better, cheaper" innovation paradigms for success all too frequently find themselves — and their customers — disappointed.

 

Hey folks -- this is a pivotal article about biz storytelling. Why??

 

Because it addresses the most neglected aspect of effective business storytelling -- the story about the future that you and your customers/clients are creating together.

 

What I love about this article is its twist -- the level of biz storytelling these days is mostly focused on how to authentically share stories about your products/services, people, or founding to capture the hearts and minds of propsects and build loyal customers. That is OK as far as it goes.

 

But there could be more. Way more.

 

Instead of asking, "What do our customers want [and how do I share a story about that]?" how about asking, "What do our customers want to become [and what is the story I can share about that]?" What a fundamentally different -- and better -- question!

 

Org story advice for crafting 'Future Stories' is typically "Write a newspaper article about your company 5 years from now & the awards you are receivng" or some such version of that. Not bad. But there could be more -- way more.

 

When we start asking ourselves the questions posed in this article, whole new worlds start opening up. 'Future stories' are really about the future we are creating together with our customers/clients -- it is the call to be part of something bigger than ourselves.

 

Go read this article -- quickly! You will be glad you did because it will get you to fundamentally shift how you think about and share about your business, and the stories you tell about it.

 

And if you need a really great example of a company doing this, then check out this latest Nike video. 

http://www.cbssports.com/olympics/blog/eye-on-olympics/19654085/video-nikes-new-olympics-ad-greatness-is-for-all-of-us ;

 

And if you want to review a written form of this, then check out my Manifesto on my website. The Manifesto is still a work in progress, but you will get the idea. http://www.juststoryit.com/FutureStory ;

 

Enjoy this short article -- its insights, questions, and a different kind of conversation we can have about business storytelling.

5 Reasons People Aren’t Following You Back on Twitter

5 Reasons People Aren’t Following You Back on Twitter | building community through social media | Scoop.it

There are a few cardinal rules of social media that many business still fail to embrace. I spend a lot of time looking through the individuals and brands that follow me, and decide on a case-by-case basis whether or not I’m going to follow them back. There are a few reasons I avoid following people back, and I would guess many others aren’t for similar reasons.


So, here are 5 Reasons People Aren’t Following You Back on Twitter:

How To Send A Power Tweet That Increases Engagement by 400%

How To Send A Power Tweet That Increases Engagement by 400% | building community through social media | Scoop.it
There is a Twitter tool that synergizes, feeds and enhances the Twitter and Blogging ecosystems that promises to make your tweets live longer and as a marketer and a blogger that sounds like something I may be "very" interested in!

 

The web is a seething mass of people sharing on social networks such as Facebook, Twitter and YouTube and they are monster networks with hundreds of millions of participants that drive billions of shares and tweets.


It is estimated that every 20 minutes on Facebook, 1 million links are shared and each month 30 billion pieces of content are posted.

 

On Twitter this hyperactivity continues with 1 billion tweets shared every week.

 

Underneath these social media giants sits secondary and tertiary social networks and applications that feed off their activity. These platforms provide niche communities with places to play, share and explore in an ever changing landscape of ecosystems that tempt you with features and tools that are designed to engage you and addict you.

 

Are You a Hyper Active Social Media Participant?...
