How to Use “Curation” to Boost Content “Creation” | Curation, Social Business and Beyond | Scoop.it

This piece was written by Heba Hosny, a guest blogger for Lauralee Walker


This article is full of wonderful tips for taking your curation to the next level and embellish your original content.


"Content curation rewards are not limited to branding and SEO; it can also enhance the visibility and the quality of your own content."


There are many things that caught my attention, here are just a few gems:


Curated Content Can Inspire Topics For Created Content


If you don't master this one, all the other tips won't make any sense


****Understand which topics are irresistible to your target audience


My Commentary:


I love this one!


Here's the tip


****Instead of taking the easy route of sharing the topic with your audience, write a blog post to "build on" it.


You can build on a topic in different ways:


**Beg to differ politely


**Provide additional tips and insights


**Ask clarifying question(s)


My Commentary:


This is a great way to add "context" it can start conversations, which invites others to add their comments, bring new observations and more information about a particular topic.


**A perfect segue to building relationships, community, doing business and increasing knowledge.

Hi Beth,
I agree with you, I love the feeling of community and the collective wisdom, and you know "curation resonates with me":-)

This has me thinking critically about how we are integrating social media. Inviting interaction has been a huge challenge. We are stimulating new conversations in real world time, but that's not reflected in comments and so forth. I like using Scoop.It widgets to get the newest scoop onto the bog in a timely manner and take some time to reflect on post content.

Curation Meets Storytelling -Telling Stories of Human History Through Objects

Curation Meets Storytelling -Telling Stories of Human History Through Objects | Curation, Social Business and Beyond | Scoop.it

Katherine Schulten & Shannon Doyne wrote this  piece for The New York Times.


Curation meets storytelling, so many great gems in this article. This definitely gets my creative juices flowing, what about you?


In "Stuff That Defines Us" Carol Vogel writes:


"It was a project so audacious that it took 100 curators four years to complete it.


****The goal: to tell the history of the world through 100 objects culled from the British Museum’s sprawling collections."


Ideas for using the British Museum's "The History of the World in 100 Objects," along with a related Times article and slide show, in the classroom.


Here's what caught my attention:


People’s Choices


To coincide with the “History of the World in 100 Objects” project, the public was invited to tell their stories about objects that hold significance to them.


Activity Ideas


Create Your Own Slide Show or Podcast About Important Objects


All segments of the BBC’s “A History of the World in 100 Objects” are available online.


Listen to a segment about an object that interests you,


**taking notes on how narrator Neil MacGregor describes and contextualizes it by telling a story that, as the Times article puts it, “everybody could relate to.”


Next, choose an object from history — whether an artifact of a fascinating era, an invention that changed history, a work of art that intrigues you, or anything else —


research it. When it was made? Who made it? How does it reflect its time and place? What does it say about human culture?

What is The Future Of Online Community? Why You Should Care

What is The Future Of Online Community? Why You Should Care | Curation, Social Business and Beyond | Scoop.it

This is a great post, very insightful, observations are right on target, by Vanessa DiMauro, CEO Leader Networks


Lots to digest here but what particularly caught my attention as a content curator was this:


What is the role of content in creating value in communities?


How will that change? Will value come in other ways?


People come for content and stay for community.


Access to valuable content (content that people can’t get elsewhere) is the single most compelling driver for participating in an online community.


****Content serves as the trigger to join, and fuels the community over time by providing contexts for conversations between peers / members.


****Through the use of social media, and especially online communities,


****professionals now have the ability to reach, connect with, learn from and influence other professionals who share an interest or a passion in the topics of interest.


****Sounds like this community - Scoopit!


Thought leadership is the new currency of credibility.
