Curation As Story – The Importance Of Human Filters

Curation As Story – The Importance Of Human Filters | Curation, Social Business and Beyond |

This piece was written by Jeff Turner who has curated a great conversation from members of a tweetchat #tschat today.

There are many forms of curation, I think this is an excellent real life example of the many ways you can use curation to add value for others.

I agree with this, no matter what you're curating, it has to have a story that ties it together:

"Curation is a form of storytelling. Curation tools need to support this truth."

**Collecting content without qualitative human judgement is aggregation, not curation. The best automation tools alone will never replace the ability of a human being to provide meaningful context.

****And the best curation, the curation I subscribe to via email, takes context to the next level. It tells a story.

**This post is being written, primarily to serve as an example of what I’m calling “social curation.”

**The act of curating a conversation, like the one that took place this morning at #tschat, should be a storytelling act.

**every act of curation is a storytelling exercise, whether you use a tool hosted on a third-party site, like Pinterest or Storify, or whether you choose to use tools that allow you to self-host your curation.

**In the end, the story is what matters. It’s what has always mattered. Have I told a story, or have I simply collected a bunch of links?"

Just noticed that he used a graphic I created! Small world. Good one for my nonprofit curation list.

I really like that last question -- curation is a storytelling act

How We Master Connectivity The Core Essence of Social Networking

How We Master Connectivity The Core Essence of Social Networking | Curation, Social Business and Beyond |

Insightful and thought provoking post from Conversation Agent on how we must connect in deeper and more meaningful ways to succeed in business today.

Curated by JanLGordon covering "Content Curation, Social Media & Beyond"


"Without understanding connectivity, the basis of human connections, network theory, contextual intelligence, any business leader unable to grasp those things will be lost." [Warren Bennis]

Here's what caught my attention:

Human connections

**Why is the social graph such a fascinating and important part of digital connectivity?

Based upon mathematics and computer science, the connectivity of a graph is an important measure of its robustness as a network. The social graph shows human connections.

**There are entry points or intersections between personal story and story together.

**Those relationships are the yin to the yang of commerce -- complementary opposites that interact within a greater whole, as part of a dynamic system.

****Commerce is the relationships of what people exchange instead of the asset.
