5 Reasons Content Discovery Tools Need a Human Touch

5 Reasons Content Discovery Tools Need a Human Touch | Curate your Learning | Scoop.it

 

I really liked this article by Romain Goday from Darwin Ecosystem about content discovery tools and particularly the way he described the element of the "human touch" and why they go hand and hand.

 

His description of the human part of the equation eloquently describes the process of a content curation.

Content Curation: What Does it Take to Be Successful? | WebProNews

Content Curation: What Does it Take to Be Successful? | WebProNews | Curate your Learning | Scoop.it

Q: What does it take to be successful in content curation?

A: “It comes down to a few key processes. You need to have good aggregation tools in place to gather and filter information. You then need to have a way to centralize and showcase that information in a way that communicates to your audience effectively. Lastly, in most cases – especially those involving gathering information from digital, user-driven sources, you’ve got to nail down the verification of that info. While in many ways curation has become easier, it’s also become harder to sift through and find the reliable and factual sources.”....

Even for Broadcast Media the Future Points To Curation: Jonathan Marks

Even for Broadcast Media the Future Points To Curation: Jonathan Marks | Curate your Learning | Scoop.it

Media strategist and consultant Jonathan Marks shares his views on the future of broadcasting with Gemma van der Kamp:


“I imagine companies providing specific audiences with so-called news briefings,” he says. “Suppose a company in carbon trade which can’t separate the wood from the trees in the abundance of news about carbon trade. What it needs is a package of specialised news.

 

A media outlet specialised in carbon trade could curate the news and brief the company once a day on what it thinks is important for the company to know.”

 

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.

One of the thing companies forget is that they may already possess some content in the form of white papers, executive interviews and webcast recordings. Assuming that content is somewhat evergreen, there are a number of ways to cross-purpose that content into other formats and thus cross-post content into more social channels.
