Quora Expands Beyond Q&A, — Great for Curators - Here's Why

Quora is taking a step beyond Q&A this morning with its latest product launch, boards.


**Users can now set up their own personal-themed bookmarking boards, sort of like a Pinterest for text-based information.


Board onboarding (heh) is easy. Users who want to create a board will now see a “Create a board” option at the top right of Quora and on their header dashboard.


**Anything can be posted to a board, whether it be links to web content like news and video, images, stuff on Quora like Questions and answers or text commentary.


**Users can post content directly from Quora by clicking on the ‘Repost’ option under every question.


**Board Owners can add Authors and Followers to a board, as well as pay to add Topics.


**They can also set up the board in a grid or list format.


****The most interesting feature of boards, from a utility aspect, is that Authors can set up following granularity to public — i.e. everyone who follows the board Author will see content or limited only board followers.


**Boards will also now show up on Topics pages, as well as on your personal Quora profile page.

Content Curation: Why Detecting Emerging Patterns Is Crucial?

Content Curation: Why Detecting Emerging Patterns Is Crucial? | Curation, Social Business and Beyond | Scoop.it

Romain Goday, wrote this piece for Darwin Ecosystems I've had some great discussions with Romain and he truly understands what it takes to be a relevant curator.


He lists the top reasons why content curators need to pay attention to them.


We all know the service Content Curators provide in cutting through the noise on the Web, and new tools that are coming out will enable more and more people to become curators.


This is what caught my attention:


** Successful Curators will need the tools that enable them to latch onto new trends in their area of expertise. 


Those who are able to discern patterns and report on them in a timely manner will


***Link together pieces of the information puzzle so that others may see what had previously been missed


***Provide insights on the significance of events


***Demonstrate how those events evolve


***The emergence of patterns is a sign that something is happening


***The ability to understand and Curate new patterns and generate buzz around them, is what stands Expert Curators above the growing crowd


Romain's own takeaway is that Patterns should be the starting point for Curation.
