On Curating Content

On Curating Content | Content Curation 411 | Scoop.it

Joseph Bachana, president of DPCI,  gives his take on curating content. Excerpt: 

"It also occurs to me as I spend far more time on twitter, socialmedian, digg and other social-media sites that 'mavens' -- those we follow who are the rockstars of these platforms -- are essentially curating content for us all. We would need an endless number of lifetimes to read all the content available to us on the Web, even with the available filtering technologies that search engines offer us.

 

However, the social-media rockstar (whats a good term for those people? they're not making news so much as filtering it and presenting it back to the rest of us) are filtering out the content -- presenting important content, sorting the relevant from the meaningless or inaccurate and debunking the latter."

Content Curation: Reducing Digital Noise

This brief blog post from memonic highlights the  role content curation plays as a filter to reduce digital noise.

 

Excerpt: "...we need to find ways to readjust the signal-to-noise ratio (SNR). The SNR compares the level of desired information (signal) to undesired (background) noise... A good place to start is information you deem worth keeping. A given collection of information snippets on a certain topic is a pretty good starting point to filter through the sea of information the Internet has become."

Creating Community By Curating Content

Creating Community By Curating Content | Content Curation 411 | Scoop.it

A lot of people are talking about content curating these days. People are saying that it’s really important, it’s great, it’s awesome, it’s a growing part of the online world, et cetera ad infinitum. And hey, I’m really happy about that (cough, Blog Library, cough).

But apart from the fact that it’s just plain enjoyable, not a lot of people really emphasize why it’s beneficial to curate content. The fact is, for me, working as an online content curator has helped me grow my online community.
How does that work? I’m so glad you asked!

You can scoop it, pin it, or bundle it. Whatever you do with it, content curation is a reflection of you and your tastes. It seems like many content gathering sites are in beta mode across the web right now, so we can probably expect a quick proliferation of them once the kinks are out. Websites like Scoop.it, Pinterest, and Shareist require an invite to use the platform for now, but once they go live and open up to the masses, anyone can become a publisher of sorts.
