The Unanticipated Benefits of Content Curation

This is a slideshare presentation by Beth Kanter on Curation. If you've followed this topic for a while, you've seen other great posts by Beth on Curation such as this one for NTEN but this one is an up-to-date version which is worth looking at again. 

 

Curation is an idea that has been maturing fast recently. And it's great seeing Beth push the anlysis and highlights its specifities and best practices. She also commented this presentation and the corresponding webinar here on her blog.

6 Myths of Social Sharing (infographic)

6 Myths of Social Sharing (infographic) | Curating Tools and Information | Scoop.it

Social sharing buttons on websites account for less than 30 percent of all sharing, and links shared on Thursday get peak engagement and the longest-lasting traffic.

Those are only two of the results of a RadiumOne study focusing on sharing behavior. RadiumOne is an enterprise advertising platform that operates the Po.st social sharing and URL-shortening platform — which naturally generates a lot of data on what people share, how they share, and what kind of sharing is the most effective.

5 Infographics to Teach You How to Easily Create Infographics in PowerPoint [+ TEMPLATES] | Curating Tools and Information | Scoop.it

When most marketers hear the term "visual content," the first type that comes to mind is usually the infographic. But how can those who don't necessarily have a design background -- or budget to commission an agency, hire a dedicated in-house designer, or purchase expensive design software -- create professional-looking infographics that enable them to leverage the power of visual content?

 

We're so glad you asked! Here's a little secret: You can do it right within software you likely already have loaded on your computer. That's right! PowerPoint can be your best friend when it comes to visual content creation. And to help you get started, we've created five fabulous infographic templates you can download for free and use to customize your own infographics right within PowerPoint -- as well as some helpful tips and tricks to help you learn how to use PowerPoint to its full potential.

So we've multiplied the ways you could integrate with a Wordpress site or blog and here's a recap of how to make this work.
