What is most interesting about Picplum is its inherent ability to curate photos. On Facebook and other photo sharing sites, people upload all of the items on their cameras. Eventually, they'll need a way to separate the good pictures from the bad.

11 Journalism Jobs You May Hold in the Future

11 Journalism Jobs You May Hold in the Future | Curation, Social Business and Beyond | Scoop.it

Print media is on its way out. Long-form stories aren’t being read. We’ve all heard these laments, but don’t fret yourself too crazy.

 

If you look, you’ll find plenty of signs that this field won’t go away. Journalism isn’t dying; it’s evolving. To survive, we’re all going to have to get more creative and adapt as new technologies and methodologies appear.
