Visual Content Is Shaping the Future of Social Media [Infographic]

Visual Content Is Shaping the Future of Social Media [Infographic] | Convergence Journalism |
Visual content is exploding on social media, with sites like Pinterest and Vine leading the charge.

Even Twitter, which started as a place to post short and simple messages, now has images for a more visual experience. Indeed, the future of digital media is upon us — and it’s rich with visual content.

According to an infographic from Oracle, there are five tweets per second that include a Vine link. The acquisitions of Tumblr and Vizify point to an increased interest in interactive media and infographics, with Yahoo investing in visual media.

Content Curation Is the New Community Builder

Content Curation Is the New Community Builder | Convergence Journalism |

Great post written by Eric Brown for Social Media Explorer - This is what caught my attention:


Curation — the act of human editors adding their work to the machines that gather, organize and filter content.


“Curation comes up when search stops working,” says author and NYU Professor Clay Shirky. But it’s more than a human-powered filter.


“Curation comes up when people realize that it isn’t just about information seeking, it’s also about synchronizing a community.”


Part of the reason that human curation is so critical is simply the vast number of people who are now making and sharing media.


“Everyone is a media outlet”, says Shirky. “The point of everyone being a media outlet is really not at all complicated. It just means that we can all put things out in the public view.
