The site gives you the chance to read the themes which interest you in a reading friendly design with no visual clutter.

Why Curation is the natural form of Mobile Publishing Scoop.it

Why Curation is the natural form of Mobile Publishing Scoop.it | Content Curation 411 | Scoop.it

"...one area that still struggles with mobile is content publishing. For content format that are by essence “mobile”, no problem: photos, short videos, tweets, position/check-ins, status updates… But so far, this has excluded any publishing activity involving long form / richer content, such as creating a story and updating a blog.

Curation is an opportunity to change that."

The Future of Context: Mobile Reading from Google to Flipboard to FLUD

The Future of Context: Mobile Reading from Google to Flipboard to FLUD | Content Curation 411 | Scoop.it

In order to build for the new world of mobile reading, media companies, software developers, advertisers and even users have to think about context differently.

Context is no longer “simply” the background to a story or the stories or advertising immediately flanking it. Context is now a multivariable function, dependent on:

- Medium, the form faktor of the device

- Location, where the device is being used

- Time, both time of day and duration of attention

- Social, both as a filter and a megaphone

- Identity, the users self-presentation and choice

All of these constitute personalization and redefine context. You can slice them up into monetizable data, or blend them into an experiential gestalt.

Curating the Curators | jake levine

In the distributed social web, all audiences have the size of 1, and no single audience experience is ever the same. In other words, unless you follow the exact same people that I do, your content experience will be different from mine. My personal curators might share a particular article with greater or less frequency than yours, and we will both naturally, and as frequently as daily, adjust our social graphs to optimize for the most relevant curated experience.

 

In the distributed social web, where every participant is a content producer, the audience must curate the curators!

How To Distinguish High Value Curation From Republishing: What Makes A True Curator Great? | MasterNewMedia

How To Distinguish High Value Curation From Republishing: What Makes A True Curator Great? | MasterNewMedia | Content Curation 411 | Scoop.it

Today content curation is "sold", promoted and marketed as the latest and trendiest approach to content production, SEO visibility, reputation and traffic building. But is it really so? Is it really true that by aggregating many content sources and picking and republishing those news and stories that you deem great is really going to benefit you and your readers in the long run? Is the road to easy and effortless publishing via curation tools a true value creation business strategy, or just a risky fad? How can one tell?

 

Robin Good clarifies few key points in his article:

1. Curation can be effective only...

2. Shallow curation efforts...

3. Curation is an effective means to...

4. The key element that makes curation work is the competence...

 

For these reasons, Robin Good thinks that much of the apparent new curation work being done is bound to be soon disappointed by the results it will gain.

 

Robin Good's goal is to help you understand how you can start to evaluate and distinguish value-creating content curation, from shallow aggregation, noise-making republication and pure content regurgitation before it is too late or someone else in your same niche will have done it before you.

 

How Do You Recognize a Quality Content Curator: 

- Optimizes titles...

- Edits / rewrites titles...

- Formats curated content with microscopic precision...

- Selects and adds relevant images...

- Excerpts selected text...

- Writes his/her own intro...

 

How Do You Recognize a Wasteland-Filler - Aggregator - Republisher?

- No Additional Value...

- No Editing...

- No selection...

- No filtering...

What Are You Going To Be? A Noise Firehose or a Focusing Lens?

What Are You Going To Be? A Noise Firehose or a Focusing Lens? | Content Curation 411 | Scoop.it

Seth Godin latest article, entitled "the trap of social media noise", touches on one of the hot issues that boiling under the new content curation tools carnival.

 

Are we creating and leveraging these tools to regurgitate and spit out more noise, or are we working to build tools and to help others understand the value of distilling and making sense of the information wave surrounding us?

As Seth, correctly points out, to lead the way, to challenge new ground and not for the lowest common denominator is a scary proposition.

 

Nonetheless, many a curation tool is approaching the marketplace claiming as key benefits the zero-time-to-publish, frictionless content-gathering powers, super-easy sharing to multiple social networks and seo domination. 

 

If this isn't an invitation to create yet more noisy content, with little or no value attached to it, then I fail to see where is this true invitation and support for making intelligent and truly valuable use of these tools.

 

The fad will soon vanish, as anyone will soon be able to clip, republish (in cool formats) and share in a matter of clicks, without needing a training on it. The ensuing noise tsunami will make it rapidly evident that it is not more content or information that we need, but humans -aided by intelligent tools- that can help others find and make sense of the information and resources out there.

 

"...either be better at pump and dump than anyone else, get your numbers into the millions, outmass those that choose to use mass and always dance at the edge of spam (in which the number of those you offend or turn off forever keep increasing)...

 

or Relentlessly focus.

 

Prune your message and your list and build a reputation that's worth owning and an audience that cares.

 

Only one of these strategies builds an asset of value."

 


If it's tough to read, this is your reading. 10/10

I love this headline too but sometimes I think we might be in a "curation bubble" and although we "get it" lots of people are still trying to figure out how to translate "content curation" into actual business terms they can relate to and use.

[Guest post by Paula Goldman]

The wisdom of crowds, the insanity of crowds.

Mention the word “network” to most people and their reactions tend to sway between these two polar extremes. It’s either “crowdsourcing is the answer to everything” –or it’s a complaint that social networks like Facebook and Twitter are just “too full of chatter.”

 

If I have one takeaway from the GEO/Monitor Group conference on Networks earlier this week, it’s about how crucial the curator is in determining the difference between a successful network and one that simply makes lots of noise....
