Content Curation Goes Beyond Information to Synchronizing a Community!

Content Curation Goes Beyond Information to Synchronizing a Community! | Collaborative Content-Curation: new Forms of Reading & Writing #curation #journalism #education #e-learning | Scoop.it

This is a short post, written by Sean Carton, (I'm posting his next article after this one) but he gets right to the point in this piece:

 

"Curation comes up when search stops working and when people realize that it isn't just about information seeking, it's also about synchronizing a community." Sean goes on to add that it's the "community" part that's at the heart of the whole curation movement

 

Just as a carefully-curated museum exhibit is sure to draw like-minded people together, carefully-curated content on the web has the potential to attract (and/or build) an online community of people who are into the same stuff."

 

Remember to:

 

Think about your niche and help the community make sense of its niche. Provide an ongoing resource (not just an event) and offer an attractive user experience.

Welcome To The New Age Of Curation

Welcome To The New Age Of Curation | Collaborative Content-Curation: new Forms of Reading & Writing #curation #journalism #education #e-learning | Scoop.it

"Simon Careless wrote this post, he is an editor, publisher, oversees the Game Developers Conference shows, Gamasutra and Game Developer magazine. He has a lot to say about the massive overload of content we're all experiencing. I like his observations and we'll be hearing more from him in the near future on this subject.

 

What really caught my attention was a comment from one of his readers, Sarah Brin:"

comment 1:

"Curation isn’t strictly about taste-making either–a huge part of it is becoming an interlocutor, someone who facilitates a discussion around content, as opposed to presenting content with a qualitative (and subjective) evaluation. In that regard, the democratization of curatorial tools (tumblr, twitter, all the ways we share content) is really exciting! It might usher in a new era wherein culture becomes more participatory…or it might not."

 

 

... for me (Heiko Idensen) the five reasons for leaving the "Age of creation" are important & coming again to the problem of the FILTERS:
"So what’s the fix? You need a filter. And I strongly believe that while algorithmical filters work, you need people to tell you about things you wouldn’t find that way. When I look at book suggestions on Amazon, or artist radio on Last.fm, they’re logical and basically useful - but they’re not a concatenated, cool-hunted melange that reaches out and touches your heart.

Some form of this filtration has been in shape for decades, largely in print form, of course. ..."
 

"What are your thoughts about this?" (asked janlgordon)
