The Future Of Content Curation Tools - Part I

The Future Of Content Curation Tools - Part I | Engagement & Content Marketing | Scoop.it

Excerpt from article written and curated by Robin Good and first published on MasterNewMedia:
"Content curation tools are in their infancy. Nonetheless you see so many of them around, there are more new curation tools coming your way soon, with lots of new features and options.

Enormous progress has been made since the early days of the first news curation tools to what is available today, but yet, I feel we have only barely scratched the surface.

To illustrate what I expect to see on this front, here is a panoramic tour of the traits, features, patterns and trends that I expect will characterize the future of digital content curation tools, organized into specific feature areas.

1) Display Formats of Curated Content Collections
The first area in which I expect to see lots of improvement and innovative ideas is the one of how a curated collection or stream can be displayed to the user.
This is one of the most underestimated and underutilized areas of improvement for content curation tools.

2) Slicing and Dicing
Some of the present-day content curation tools, including Scoop.it, Spundge and several others, do allow you to tag and filter content but none provides a direct facility to easily create sub-sets that gather together collection items with the same characteristics.

3) Micro - Macro
One other badly needed feature, that I hope will see its way in some of the leading content curation tools, is the ability to instantly switch from a bird’s eye view of a topic to the detailed view of a specific information item.

4) Recurate
Another area that offers great opportunities for innovation and for the introduction of new useful features is the one covering the ability to assess, managing inventories, organize and curate one’s own existing assets.

5) News Discovery
The main problem with news discovery arises from the fact that quality filters and algorithms capable of both fully understanding the topic of interest, not just by way of a keyword or a hashtag but by semantic inference, and capable of identifying the relevant sources among so many noise-making content marketers reposting other people stuff, are not easy to build.
The best way to uncover, identify and identify new quality sources and content items may be to employ a balanced mix of automated search filters augmented by human curators that can supervise, edit, refine and improve on what is gathered by the algos.

6) Ownership
The main benefit offered by content curation platforms that require you to curate and publish first via their systems (Scoop.it, Pinterest, etc.) is that they provide you with an existing broad audience readily interested in your content. For someone just starting out online, this can be a huge booster.
The con side of the equation is that your rights on what you have curated as well as the physical ownership of that content is not under your control anymore. And for those already having good visibility and reputation online, this may not be the most attractive proposition.

7) Credit and Attribution
For professional curators the need to properly and systematically credit and attribute the content and sources utilized is not a secondary matter. Discovery of new interesting content is at the heart of the curator job, and facilitating the exchange on meta-data that provides credit and hints as to who has been of help in discovering something will increasingly be a highly valued activity..."

Russell Yardley's curator insight, December 25, 2013 4:01 PM

With billions of people connected through social media and directly connected with email traditional curators of news and other content have had their business models destroyed but it has not surprisingly taken many years for better models to emerge. 

 

The widsom of crowds is well known but so is their stupidity (stock market crashes, group think, lowest common denominator in election outcomes...). Better curating tools and systems are beginning to show that valuable curators of the worlds content are able to find their audience and enrich the world with deep insight that replace the extremely low numbers of curators of the past (news paper barons).

 

Some of these curators will be paid and others do it just for the joy of it. Collectively they will reshape thinking and ultimately the world.

5 Reasons Why Content Marketing is Getting Harder and More Important - Small Business Trends

5 Reasons Why Content Marketing is Getting Harder and More Important - Small Business Trends | Engagement & Content Marketing | Scoop.it

Content marketing is obvious. If you’re here reading Small Business Trends, odds are that you’re engaged in content marketing.

Your websites, apps, and updates probably try to offer something of value — information, humor, tips, advice, how-to instructions, or even well crafted opinion — that people actually want to read.

 

Obvious, however, doesn’t mean easy. Of course, creating a useful blog post, comment, update, or article doesn’t take the millions of dollars the big brands typically spend on 30-second television ads. But if it’s really good content, it takes expertise, thought, editing, time, and effort.

6 Powerful Tools To Help You Come Up With Awesome Headlines | Engagement & Content Marketing | Scoop.it

Headlines are important. Up to 80% of people may not even read your post if you don’t have a powerful headline that grabs people’s attention.

 

It’s the first impression your readers have and it will dictate whether or not they keep on reading.

 

In essence, your title has to pique a reader’s curiosity enough for them to want to know more about it.In fact your headline alone can be responsible for up to a 500% difference in your traffic – that’s viral.

 

So, even though you have the greatest blog post there is, if your headline doesn’t convey how awesome your post is, no one will read your content....

14 Amazingly Free Stock Photo Websites

14 Amazingly Free Stock Photo Websites | Engagement & Content Marketing | Scoop.it
If you've ever tried searching for free stock photos on the Internet, you probably know what a ridiculous hassle it can be.

As a general rule, free stock photos are extremely difficult to find. A huge portion of the stock photo market is owned by professional companies like Shutterstock and 123RF, who charge $20 or more for a single photo. Even when you can find free stock photos, most are low resolution, watermarked, blurry and, at best, uninspired.

Lucky for you, there are a few ways to access high-quality stock photos without any hassle or significant cost.

7 Things Your Competitors Can Teach You About Content Marketing

7 Things Your Competitors Can Teach You About Content Marketing | Engagement & Content Marketing | Scoop.it

This quote by Marshall McLuhan probably sums everything up about content marketing.


“Anyone who tries to make a distinction between education and entertainment doesn’t know the first thing about either.


”This applies to all marketers. The old way of marketing does not work anymore. The social web has disrupted and irreparably damaged the sales funnel. The scales have tilted and tipped in customers’ favour.


These days’ customers are inundated with an avalanche of likes and follow requests. There is so much clutter and information to process. It’s no longer enough to simply produce good content. You have to stand out above the muddle and jumble. For instance, on Facebook customers know that if they simply ignore your messages for a while, soon you will stop appearing on their timeline even though you are technically liked.


Leonardo DaVinci once said, “Good artists copy but great artists steal.” In this article I will look at some of the things that are worth ‘stealing’ from your competitors.

One meaningful addition to your social strategy would be to create your own onsite community customized to your needs to nurture and engage employees, current and potential customers within your own ecosystem.


There is no better or more economical way available that provides the short and long term benefits that can be derived from an onsite community if implemented and managed properly.


It is time for businesses to optimize their own available resources and take a course that can reduce their dependence on third parties that are expensive and getting less effective with each new change that's made to further their own agendas-Their own bottom line.
