OMP Digital's curator insight, January 3, 2013 11:44 AM

This video is to be watched by all interested in curation. As curation and creatively becomes a much in demand skill, how can those content marketers looking for that easy share produce more content in less time? Well this video shall aim to answer that along with other inspiring ideas

IdeaEncore's curator insight, January 8, 2013 3:49 PM

Scott: Very helpful to see the subtlty of variations on curation

 

Robin:This is an oustandingly good video about "curation". After nine months from its first appearance, it undoubtedly deserves a second pass on my newsradar here, as I think this is a clip that, in less than three minutes, can do a good job to explain what curation really is to anyone not familiar with it. 

 

I find this video clip such a marvellous piece of inspiring content that I have decided to post it again, giving the opportunity to you - if you haven't seen it yet - to look at curation with eyes distant light-years from those of the content marketer looking for easy shortcuts to produce more content in less time, - and if you have seen it already - to look at it again and to pause and think about how you are going to take up and make yours some of the inspiring ideas shared in this clip.

 

Asking yourself more questions about how you curate and for what final purpose you do it, can only be a healthy exercise in refining this much in-demand skill.

 

 

To be watched by anyone interested in curation. 8/10

How Google Author Rank could change content marketing… and journalism

How Google Author Rank could change content marketing… and journalism | Content Curation and the Future of Delivery | Scoop.it
Here’s a little piece of SEO nerdery that affects us all: Google is using Google+ to influence search results in a big way, and brands and media organizations alike have yet to wake up to the...

Via Guillaume Decugis
Eric Moran's insight:

Erin Griffith analyzes how the use of authorships combined with Google+ is now impacting Google search results.

 

This change is not new but, as she puts it, it is significant: "Google was always about the algorithm, not curation, certainly not curation through something as, well, human as a social network. The emphasis before was about what was on the page not who wrote it."

 

While she focuses on the new importance of authorship given by Google, what's happening is actually a mix of a couple of things which are in my opinion equally good: 

 

AuthorshipSocial results

 

#1 means that an identified, reputable author will prevail; #2 is part of the social signal that Google uses more and more to rank results and that builds on curators' activity.

 

Bottom line is that - as I predicted a while ago - the age of low-quality content cheaply produced by random anonymous writers in content farms for pure SEO purposes is over. By combining a measure of the author's influence as well as taking into account curators' appetite for a piece of content, Google is bringing quality back in the game. Which is good for authors, curators and... readers.

Websites don’t kill newspapers, people kill newspapers. | Content Curation and the Future of Delivery | Scoop.it

The newspaper. One of the most sacred institutions of the publishing world and one of its oldest, most respected methods of knowledge gathering and collection of popular opinion, dating all the way back to the first printing presses ever created.

Having lived through this era at one of the papers on this list. I can attest to much that is stated in this article. People simply digest content the way they want to now, not the way that publishers want it delivered. People now have the power to seek out the content that they want.They can now deliver, create and share content with the many tools avialable. The shift of content power will continue.

Steven Mallach's comment, July 5, 2013 12:21 AM
I am still convinced that newspapers can thrive in a content rich environment. Perhaps the key is adding value to the print media experience. Although it may seem counter intuitive (what's the value add?) newspapers can act as gatekeepers to content using technology like augmented reality. The use of mobile devices like Smartphones can allow readers of niche publications at least to access further granularity of information through scanning a page and linking to online content. Using this model newspapers or specialist publications can become gatekeepers, sort of print content curators if you will. People (at least some demographics like those over 50) still like the comfort of print, the key is adding value.
