As power shifts to consumers—who can program their own content using powerful technology and simple interfaces—curation moves out of the hands of professionals and into communities, platforms and algorithms.

In the new world of abundance of information, responsibility is now shifting to consumers. This article shows the new importance of curation in breaking through the mess, and showing us what we're really interested in.
Excellent piece filled with stats and studies illustrating how content creation, distribution and curation are shifting...more consumer driven, from multiple platforms and players, and more automation. Companies will be challenged to stay on top of these trends, and continue creating high quality, consumer focused content that "surprises" its readers (vs churning out predictable content). Creativity and innovation will be even more critical as we move ahead...

You've heard it before: you need a content strategy. But how can you make it impacting without huge budgets and resources?
Excerpt from article written by Dennis Shiao and published on Scoop.it Blog:"Every time I visit the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York City, I see something I’ve never seen before.Wouldn’t it be great if our content collections drew as much interest, respect and admiration as the collections at MoMA? In order to achieve this feat, we need to become highly effective content curators. Let’s consider seven habits:
1. Focus on Goals
What are your goals around content curation? If you can’t answer that question, stop right now. Stop reading this post, too. Go answer the question, then return when you’re done.
2. Have Empathy
You’ll need to have empathy for your target audience. In other words, the better you understand their thoughts, interests and challenges, the more effective you’ll be at content curation.3. Be Careful, Cautious and SelectiveMake sure you read (and digest) every piece of content you curate. Curate high quality content only, leaving the marginal pieces to the proverbial cutting room floor.4. EditorializeDon’t just share content, tell us why you like (or dislike) the piece. What can your target audience learn from reading it and what are the key takeaways? In a sense, editorializing creates a nice blend of creation and curation.5. Provide AttributionProviding attribution shows respect and helps drive visibility and awareness to content authors. As you curate, look up the author of the article (or blog post) and explicitly acknowledge them. 6. Understand What’s Timely and TrendingSharing fresh milk is good. Sharing spoiled milk is rotten.If you find content that is time sensitive, consider whether the “sharing window” has already passed.7. Have an Eye for a Great TitleNot everyone will be as thorough as you when reviewing content. A lot of people will click on a link solely because of a compelling title. As you sharpen your curating skills, you’ll begin to figure out what separates great titles from good titles. If you come across a great article that has just a good title, consider changing the title text when you curate..."Read full original article here:http://blog.scoop.it/2014/02/13/7-qualities-of-highly-effective-content-curators/

Excerpt from article written and curated by Master Curator Robin Good and published on MasterNewMedia:"Many such curation tools also appear to be very similar to one another, especially if evaluated exclusively from the type of news streams or visual collections that can be produced with them.The most limiting factor of all, in making an effective selection when it comes to content curation tools is the lack of a proper evaluation framework, identifying the specific requirements and needs that need to be met by the content curation tool to be selected.I am now publicly sharing this list of selection criteria, complemented by relevant questions to be asked when verifying the availability of these features to help both individuals, small organizations and companies evaluate better, and in a more systematic fashion, their ideal content curation toolset.Here the features-list, organized into 21 groups.

Tools for Curation
Great tips to help you pick the best curation tool.
Nearly half of marketers surveyed (45%) say they are unable to meet their curation goals and admit their companies do not share as much content as they should.Read more: http://www.marketingprofs.com/charts/2013/12374/what-marketers-say-about-content-curation#ixzz2pf8PFwrF
recent survey by Trapit asked 131 US marketers questions about content curation and how it relates to their content marketing strategies. The findings were super interesting, and here are some of the key takeaways (presented via Marketingprofs):
- 74% of marketers say that content curation is an important part of their content strategy.
-60% of marketers say it's difficult to find original content to curate.
- 58% said that their companies need effective content curation in order to say afloat in their industries.
- 57% of marketers said that finding the right kind of content to curate is difficult.
[url=/u/2005 x-already-notified=1]Guillaume Decugis[/url] says:
Content curation is becoming an essential part of the content marketing mix as the need to publish more quality, targeted content is becoming clear. While the easy way out of this constraint was to easily produce cheap content in the past (hence the temporary success of content farm), Google's algorithm changes and the rise of social media completely changed this game forcing all of us to publish only quality content consistently if we wanted to raise above the noise. This makes it impossible to rely solely on your own content production, hence the rising need to include content curation in the mix - something a vast majority of marketers realize.
"Il 73% degli attori di mercato afferma che la curation è una parte considerevole del loro mix di attività e quasi la metà risponde che le loro aziende non trasmettono contenuti per quanto sarebbe necessario non riuscendo a conseguire gli obiettivi di curation che si sono preposti
It seems like those who will be the most successful will find a balance between content curation and content creation. With so much information bombarding us every day, the best of the best curators will be those who share curated content that adds the most value for their readers. Time is such a precious commodity that people want a return on their time so curate and share valuable content. Understand what is valuable for your readers.

Content curation is not just collecting, it's also sharing. And whatever our motivation, we curate content to have an impact so understanding where our traffic comes from is important. During our first 2 years of existence, the Scoop.it users have published more than 50M pieces of content attracting more than 100M unique visitors so we've been in a great position to observe not only where this traffic came from but also what best practices had the strongest influence on it. So we’ve analyzed all the content curated, published and shared through Scoop.it. This post is about sharing these data and learnings so you can be more effective with your content curation.
We've been analyzing the data from millions of curated pieces and looked at:
- Content curation traffic sources: Search vs Social
- Which social networks bring the most traffic? The best traffic?
- How often should you publish content?
- How's content quality impacting traffic?
- mobile vs desktop
- Social graph vs interest graph
... and what take aways this meant for content curators.

why being a content curator is important
Dennis O'Connor - a fellow curator here on Scoop.it gives a reminder about the importance of having multiple sources for content discovery - and being organized. One of the features I like best about Scoop.It is that you can tag your articles. Makes it easy to go back and find stuff later.
Here's what Ally Greer highlighted in her scoop.
Develop multiple sources for your topicsIt's important to carefully think through the keywords that you set for your topic so that Scoop.it can crawl the web and provide you with interesting and relevant content and inspiration. In addition to taking full advantage of this, Dennis also uses other tools like Twitter, StumbleUpon, and Prismatic to find content to share on Scoop.it. Once he finds the content he wants to share with his audience, he uses Scoop.it as his social media hub to add value to that content and share it everywhere.
Tag your postsDennis takes a lot of time to tag each of his posts. This allows him, he explained, to assemble publications based upon his tagged topics. When he's using his information on Scoop.it for his E-learning classes, it's easy for him to filter his Scoop.it pages based upon different subjects and easily compile a list of posts and articles on appropriate topics to provide to his students. Something interesting that Dennis does with his tagged articles is to pull them by subject and create "special editions" of his topics on his blog for special classes and events that he is teaching.

"Critical Thinking" may sound like an obnoxious buzzword from liberal arts schools, but it's actually a useful skill. Critical thinking just means absorbing important information and using that to form a decision or opinion of your own--rather than just spouting off what you hear others say. This doesn't always come naturally to us, but luckily, it's something you can train yourself to do better.
Critical thinking doesn't end. The more knowledge you cultivate, the better you'll become at thinking about it. It's navel gazing in that you're constantly thinking about thinking, but the end result is a brain that automatically forms better arguments, focused ideas, and creative solutions to problems.
Critical Thinking is the killer tool of content creators.
A very practical description with examples of ways to become better in your critical thinking. A good primer for sense making as part of the PKM framework.
"Navel gazing." I haven't heard that term in ages ... and don't do it near enough.
Critical thinking means to ask questions that need to be asked. it involves finding the significance in every piece of information you come across and formulating opinions and plans of action. You have to ask the tough questions and the best one to start with is "Why?" Critical thinking is about being curious and allowing your sense of curiosity to follow the "why".Often times following the why will lead to finding the truths and finding lies. Critical thinking is also about honing in ones BS detector. Take time to analyze information before accepting it's credibility.

Custom timelines give you more control over how Tweets are organized and delivered on the Twitter platform.
Using Tweetdeck you can created curated collection of tweets from an event, theme, or whatever you want.
Custom timelines are a new type of timeline you control: you create the timeline, give it a name, and select which Tweets to add, either by hand or programmatically using the API. Timelines are public, have their own pages on twitter.com, and can easily be embedded on your website.
Tweetdeck can be used to set it up

Not sure why I would use this in lieu of Storify which can capture other types of resources.

It's pretty risky to filter information based on single keywords!

Learning is all about asking questions and finding answers to them. An inquisitive mind is one that goes beyond the status quo and probes deep below surface meanings. To foster such kind of thinking inside our classroom requires some hard work and a serious investment in time and efforts. We, as teachers and educators, need to prepare the right environment where inquisitive minds can nourish and grow. We need to water this environment with a culture of asking questions.
This infographic is geared for educational technique and inquiry based learned. However, I think the different of questions illustrated here are excellent for content curations to ask when reviewing resources or putting together collections.

In the run up to this holiday season, my thoughts gravitated to the increasingly important role of curation in virtually all forms of audience engagement. Why? Because, spread as we are between so many cacophonous pleas, we all face an abundance of choice that far exceeds our capacity to discern what is—and what isn’t—worthy of our attention.
In this always-on age of information overload, our synapses yearn for some relief.
For many, this relief comes from the discriminating curators who act as intelligent filters across a veritable Sargasso Sea of information, a fire hose of flotsam and jetsam. We count on these curators to help turn the patternless din into a more sensible, more tractable patchwork.
