Interesting piece from PHDIQ New Zealand about the definition of content curation and some tips to ensure you're providing value rather than simply re-posting.
I particularly like the first tip: " Have a reason for being." Having a clear point of view and an understanding of what content will provide value to your audience is essential. Without an editorial perspective, you're just adding to the clutter.
You're not curating if you leave the filtering and connecting the dots part of the experience entirely in the reader's hands.
For me, the exciting possiblity of curation is that opportunity to showcase a variety of perspectives that can add to the audience's understanding or appreciation of an issue. And I think that's true whether we're talking internal or external communication.
