Content Curators Playing A Larger Role Online

Content Curators Playing A Larger Role Online | Curation, Social Business and Beyond | Scoop.it

Tony Obregon wrote this piece on his blog - tonyobregon.com. It was curated by janlgordon covering her topic "Content Curation, Social Media and Beyond" on Scoopit 


Tony reminds us that content curators play a role in information overload - they take time to sort, select, comment on good content that helps keeps you current on your topic of interest.


Tony says:


"With the ever increasing amount of online information from social networks, the need for organizing it has never been greater. Look around and there’s no shortage of aggregation tools to help us filter out the important stuff."


Here's what caught my attention:


**In this world of information overload, there’s now a new layer in the media ecosystem: the curator. If it wasn’t for that person who retweeted the story in the first place, you probably wouldn’t have seen it.


**So naming the retweeters in daily promos is the right course of action. Twitter is like a fire hose and Paper.li is selecting random tweets that would have otherwise been missed.


**Yes, they’re randomly chosen but I find a lot of value in them because they praise others for their contributions.


**It reminds me that they’re part of my network and I can appreciate their contributions that much more. I know when I’m named in someone’s newspaper it motivates me to continue sharing that type of content.
