The Future Points To Curation In Broadcast Media

The Future Points To Curation In Broadcast Media | Curation, Social Business and Beyond |

This post was curated by Robin Good and JanLGordon. The original content was itself curated from a conversation between media strategist, trend spotter, anthropologist and consultant Jonathan Marks with journalist and fellow anthropologist Gemma van der Kamp, sharing views on the future of broadcasting.

It's interesting how Robin and I were both drawn to different aspects of this article.

What follows are examples of what the author refers to as "re-treatment" of content and of conversation.  This is both a "re-treatment of curation" and the engagement of a conversation between Curators.

I would further point to our different approaches as defining the importance of collaboration and to how re-treatments of the same material may result in the original material having broader context and being seen by more people, as our approaches stand to be seen by slightly divergent audiences.

**This is not unlike the different audiences that may be reached by journalists and news organizations curating the same material to their respective readership. 


When Jonathan Marks advises broadcasters on how to integrate emerging technologies in the work flow, he is driven by one major principle:

**making sure that the conversation with the public is happening.

In an era when the voice of the online citizen is more present than ever before, the idea may seem obvious but according to Marks, there is still much work to do.

In Marks’ view, broadcasters need to work cross-media,

**by adapting their content to mobile phones, websites and tablet devices.

**The idea of curating the news by cherry-picking good stories through web research and by using the audience’s input seems promising.

**The technology to curate stories, however, is still inadequate.

**Although various online tools to organise and share content have been developed, such as the Pearltrees application allowing users to collect, share and re-treat online content,

**“the problem is that once the link is re-treat, you have lost the original content”, Marks argues.

**“What we need are tools to build libraries and create intelligent tags. So many excellent stories are never kept.”

Several small companies already offer news briefing services and successfully manage active online communities.

They understand the trick of building niche channels and developing relations of trust with the audience.

This is where the future for broadcast media lies,” Marks predicts.

How To Manage, measure and Monitor Twitter

This is an excellent post with good information, especially for those of us who are curating content over the web.

Twitter is one of the “new media channels” that is challenging how we communicate, with whom we communicate and perhaps most fundamentally how we (Marketers) influence people.

The torrent of data that Twitter produces, especially as your Twitter follower count grows, challenges your ability to manage the noise.

So managing and monitoring that stream becomes a real challenge.

5 Reasons To Participate In Twitter Chats

5 Reasons To Participate In Twitter Chats | Curation, Social Business and Beyond |


Twitter is one of my favorite social media platforms because it is simple to use, and we get information fast. There are people we can connect with 24/7. Since I’ve been on Twitter for almost 3 years now, I’ve noticed a difference in how the site is being used by the community. I remember back when we only sent links of information.


Conversations back then were minimal, and retweeting was not yet the norm. Twitter has evolved, and it has become a great tool for communicating and learning.


Conversation is so important on Twitter. Did you know that aside from the one-on-one conversation, there is also a bigger conversation you can join if you participate in Twitter chats? What is a Twitter chat? It’s a platform wherein two or more people organize a conversation based on a topic or a theme. A hashtag is used so that people can view the participant’s interactions, questions and answers which are being discussed.


I have joined several Twitter chats in the past, and I have enjoyed it very much. I follow friends who have organized thought-provoking topics relevant to my interests. If you have not participated in a Twitter chat yet, here are 5 reasons why you should try it at least once.
