When I think about Content Curation, I think about sites like StumbleUpon, ScoopIt, TrapIt, Pinterest and sometimes Digg. Of course there are many sites out there including Curata, CurationSoft, Google+, Storify, PearlTrees, MySyndicaat, Curatedby, Storyful, Evri, Paperli, Pearltrees, Scribit and Magnify that I could use, but I have chosen the sites that have caught my attention, proven value to me, and that I am....

En este mundo marquetiniano abundan diferentes etiquetas que, con matices diferentes, definen lo mismo: podemos hablar de marketing de contenidos, de inbound marketing o de storytelling y, que me perdonen los puristas, estaremos diciendo casi lo mismo. De lo que se trata es de explicarle al potencial consumidor por qué nuestra oferta es mejor, y hacerlo de forma que el usuario perciba esa comunicación como un valor, como un relato que le resulta útil. ...
"Chasing the past, I stumbled into the future". - T A Sachs I've always been a firm believer that in order to look to the future, we must look back to and fully grasp the past (and the present)."
David Armano discusses in this post the merits of looking back on the social computing trends of the last decade, before looking forward:
#1. Digital: The Interactive Revolution
The digital revolution initially begun by replacing the analogue world. Digital began seeping into personal and professional lives and organizations, businesses and industries had to evolve along with it
#2. Digital Media: Information Goes Online
The "corporate" Website was born—essentially a glorified brochure for your organization however the business world began to wake up to the fact that not being on the Web was perhaps risking being irrelevant.
#3. Digital Business: The Transactional Era
Digital had become not only interactive and informational, but it became transactional—offering organizations new ways to connect with customers or even employees (intranets).
#4. Social: The Human Web
The word social becomes key during this era, because we begin to shift behavior during this phase. No longer are we just interfacing with digital systems (human to computer) but we begin to interface directly with each other (human to human).
#5. Social Media: Global, Local, Mobile Connectivity At Scale
Today, we live and interact with a digital world which is not only about finding information but is about being "connected".
Networks now drive much of the Web's traffic as billions of people share links and opinions about the world around them.
#6. Social Business: Connected, Adaptive & Intelligent
The reality is that most organizations are currently dealing with the realities of social media and only a few truly recognize the potential of social business. Not unlike how digital media evolved into digital business—social business takes the foundation of social media and begins to build new economic models on top of it.
Business models where new connections are formed to the benefit of both the business, customer and even employee and shareholders are a core tenet of "social business".
#7. Winners & Losers: Navigating Today And Tomorrow's World
Today digital has become embedded into the lives of millions of people and a generation who has never known life before it pours into our workforce and gradually rises in the ranks.
We are now in a social-digital environment where things increasingly move in real time.
Tomorrow's business models must not only be able to adapt to change, they must help drive that change.
What do you use as your daily Social Media dashboard every day?
Yet, in recent months, there were a great number of browser extensions released, specifically for Twitter.com. They help you create a much greater experience right inside Twitter.com.
What I like best about this is that you are in charge regarding how many bells and whistles you are adding. You can basically fully customize your own Social Media dashboard.
So here are my top 5 finds you can use to make Twitter.com a truly powerful Social Media tool for you:...

Excerpted from the article:
"Pinterest’s rise has helped highlight the value of social discovery over traditional search for shopping and the lesson hasn’t been lost on competitors.
Glimpse is a new Facebook shopping discovery app that is built on top of Facebook “like” data. The app curates shopping pages for users based on their likes, as well the stuff their friends like.
While Pinterest has taught people to pin the stuff they like from the web, Glimpse takes the existing data from Facebook’s open graph and marries it with its database of 500 million products and 500,000 stores.
The result is an immediate Pinterest rival that is already informed by a user’s Facebook activity. Users don’t have to follow anyone or like anything further to immediately get a flow of products that are tailored to their tastes.
Glimpse users can just use the Facebook like button on many retailers sites to bookmark their favorites on their Glimpse page. They can also organize their page by creating separate catalogs, similar to Pinterest boards.
“Search is a task whereas discovering things you like is fun, and Glimpse is all about shopping just for fun”.
The service will start as a Facebook app but iOS and Android apps should be available in the coming weeks."

Dentro de las comunidades de marca se ponen de manifiesto relaciones entre sus participantes que vinculan las marcas que consumen con su identidad individual y su cultura. Las comunidades de marcas se caracterizan por su conciencia compartida, rituales, tradiciones y estilos de vidas que son el reflejo de la personalidad que transmite la marca.

Reminder of What’s Social Media Curation?
With the exponential growth of social networks and blogs, the amount of information on the internet can be overwhelming and time consuming.

Robin Good: JISC provides a very well documented guide to the use of Creative Commons licences (also referred to as CC licences) which can greatly facilitate the copying, reuse, distribution, and in some cases, the modification of the original owner’s creative work without needing to get permission each time from the original rights holder.
In addition to this the correct use and embedding of CC license may greatly help in the effort to make original sources more transparent to the final reader, in many context, including news and content curation efforts of many kinds.
Creative Commons licences can be embedded into a variety of resources, such as PowerPoint, images, Word docs, elearning resources, podcasts and other audio visual resources.
While specifically prepared for UK public sector organizations this document can be quite useful for anyone interested in the use of CC licenses to distribute digital content online.
Key Benefits of embedding CC licences for content curation and attribution:It can help the user see that the resource is an 'open' resource and licensed under a specific CC licence terms
It can help reduce the future 'orphan works' (works for which the rights holders are unknown or cannot be traced), and assist in creation of appropriate attribution, citation and potential negotiation for further permissions. By embedding the selected CC licence to the licence details even if the resource gets detached from its metadata. This is particularly the case if the resource is found via a search engine instead of the original website platform which might host specific copyright restrictions.
