Collector or Curator? Becoming a Social Connoisseur

Collector or Curator? Becoming a Social Connoisseur | Curation, Social Business and Beyond | Scoop.it
It used to be that you were a wine or art collector to be considered a connoisseur. These curators of their personal taste and beauty would search for pieces that fit a collection they would be proud
janlgordon's insight:

I selected this article by Bryan Kramer because it absolutely speaks to me and many of you!


Today’s modern day curator is a curator of knowledge. We have come to rely on the best to tell us what is good and what isn’t. Their history of shares heightens their status in some cases to social connoisseur, a title not easily earned.


Bryan asks this question: Have you ever read something that made you stop and think... and you saved it? You're a collector. The question is, how do you move from collector, to connoisseur?


There are 5 great takeaways in this piece......


Here's what caught my attention:


Understand the Shelf Life - News will always serve a purpose, but today’s news only last seconds. To build a story around something that drives a different perspective is what drives new opinions, conversations and communities. What you share reflects on your beliefs, so add something that lasts longer than a retweet.

Thought provoking article.

I had to stop and read "Goosebumps" twice, the down-to-earth notion of human touch mixed with quality content, is something to ponder and keep trying.

7 Roadblocks To Content Curation - What You Need to Know | Curation, Social Business and Beyond | Scoop.it

This post was written by Romain Goday from Darwineco. The insights and suggestions in this article are excellent because they articulate the problem so clearly.


When you can see something in this light, it makes it easier to create a plan of action that is effective. This takes time but it can be done. More about this in the weeks to come, stay tuned.


Excerpt:


We all want to be sure we are not missing important information. This post explores 7 roadblocks that are an impediment to curation.


**What differentiates successful professionals is their ability to take action before competitors so as to mitigate a risk or act upon an opportunity.


Here are a few things that caught my attention:


**Finding timely and relevant information on an ongoing basis about a specific subject is very challenging


Circles of Trust


**Today's information consumption is largely dependent on whom users "follow" online: social media connections, news sites (groups of publishers), bloggers and other information providers.


****It is easy to forget that critical information might come from outside those circles of trust.


**Most information is available on the Web, but focusing on the right information requires users to combine various tools in very creative ways

Here's How to Use Content Curation as a Powerful Brand Builder | Curation, Social Business and Beyond | Scoop.it
Part of a good content marketing strategy, content curation is the art of finding, selecting, and sharing the best, most relevant content related to a particular theme or topic.
janlgordon's insight:

This article is from Socialmediatoday along with great infographics with curated information that is packed with ideas and strategies to help you create an impact.


Here are some gems that caught my attention:


Curate, organize and gather information around a theme.  - know your audience, find highly useful insights, tips, strategies to help them solve a problem - share it where your audience is


Repackage or repurpose your original or curated content - tie it to a trend or hot topic, industry news, world news - give additional information, resources or insights


Mashup - Juxtapositions - merge existing content to create a new point of view


Elevation - Identify a larger trend/insight from smaller regular musings


Chronology - Organize historical information by time to show how understanding has evolved
