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.

Content Curation Special Edition - What, Why and How

Content Curation Special Edition - What, Why and How | Curation, Social Business and Beyond | Scoop.it

This piece was selected by Robin Good and discovered by Alison Harrison. I selected it because as Robin says, it is full of great information. This content is aimed at librarians but is great for all of your curators out there. 


Here's an example of what you'll find in these articles: 


When you use curation to build trust and establish your reputation

you have to have a well defined strategy by asking questions like this:


**How does your curation strengthen and communicate your brand or profile?


**How does it generate traffic for your resources and services both physical and virtual?


**How does it extend beyond your sphere of influence with key stake holders and decision makers?


Intro:


Robin Good: The School Library Association of New Zealand Aotearoa (SLANZA) publishes "Collected", a professionally-designed and written digital magazine.

 

This issue is dedicated to content curation and it includes several articles on how to reuse content with confidence, a great checklist for curation and a really nifty piece on a newbie's experience with Scoop.it.

 

Informative. Highly recommended. 8/10
