The #1 Source for Professional Content

When it comes to eBook Downloads LinkedIn Bests Facebook by a Ratio of 75:1

Depending on your definition of professional content and your reader's appetite for such content, it looks like LinkedIn is head and shoulders above Facebook, Google+ and Twitter by a wide margin.

Why Curation Matters More Than Ever

Why Curation Matters More Than Ever | Curation | Scoop.it

Intermediate/ Excerpt...

 

In the run up to this holiday season, my thoughts gravitated to the increasingly important role of curation in virtually all forms of audience engagement. Why? Because, spread as we are between so many cacophonous pleas, we all face an abundance of choice that far exceeds our capacity to discern what is—and what isn’t—worthy of our attention.

 

In this always-on age of information overload, our synapses yearn for some relief.

 

For many, this relief comes from the discriminating curators who act as intelligent filters across a veritable Sargasso Sea of information, a fire hose of flotsam and jetsam. We count on these curators to help turn the patternless din into a more sensible, more tractable patchwork.

Escape Google With These 12 Search Engine Alternatives

Escape Google With These 12 Search Engine Alternatives | Curation | Scoop.it

Google isn't the only game in town and isn't even the best alternative for many specific search tasks and needs. Here's how to escape Google's grip with Bing, Blekko, BuzzSumo, DuckDuckGo, SocialMention, Quantcast, Topsy, Wolfram|Alpha, and more.

 

As concerns over the de facto monopoly status of Google continue to grow, I'm reminded of the great philosopher Herman Cain and his infamous line  "blame yourself". As long as "Google" is a generic phrase for Internet search, their dominant position is assured. That said, you can do something about it.There are plenty of Google alternatives and many of these players offer a bettersearch experience, depending on your needs. Here are 12 alternatives to escape your reliance on Google for all things search...

You Are No Longer Allowed To Present | Curation | Scoop.it

Here are some reasons why your presentations are BAD!   We know that so many of you use programs like PowerPoint or Prezi because they have been around for a while, and it is what you know, but change is not always a bad thing, especially if that change can lead to presentations beyond your wildest imagination.

Gavin Meikle's curator insight, March 10, 2014 6:02 AM

A (mostly) great post with some sound advice for better presentations.  Here's my take on it .....
 

Design

At the risk of upsetting all those wonderful Graphic Designers out there, I would recommend going easy on the fancy designs.   They are not essential.  What is essential  is a clear simple strategy with one idea per slide, minimal text, no bullet points (yes I mean it!) and clear simple pictures, graphs and diagrams to illustrate your verbal messages.
 

Content
Developing compelling content is important but try to avoid using a script when you deliver.    reading scripts leads to flat, lifeless delivery and makes it much harder to respond, "on the fly2 to your audience.  Instead use  a few cue cards with key points only or a simple mind map.  Either will keep you on track without restricting your ability to improvise in response to audience reaction.

 

Story Telling
To true. Stories are much more engaging that lists of facts or endless graphs.  Stories also create emotional engagement which is needed if you want the audience to be motivated to do something after the presentation. 

 

Humour
Yes it is powerful but it is risky too.   Telling jokes rarely works and can lead to all sorts of problems (poor timing, inappropriate content etc.)  Instead use gentle self deprecating humour.  Be willing to poke a little fun at yourself and the audience will warm to you. 

Dr. Pamela Rutledge's curator insight, March 10, 2014 10:43 AM

My take on good presentations:  1) Story 2) Content: Restrain your left brain 3) Design: the experience 4) Humor (optional).  Presenting starts with story and uses the visual design to reinforce and add new dimensions to your message. Design the experience, not the slides. Humor works if it's actually funny--not contrived. I've seen a lot that doesn't. Humor is optional.  If it comes naturally, great.  Focusing on story and image is mandatory.  Use serious restraint with putting words on your slides.  Words are processed by the rational, 'left-brain' which takes your audience out of any emotional experience and into thinking and linear processing.  Take them on a journey, don't give them a lecture.  If you feel compelled to give your audience words, give them a handout when you're done. 

rwestby's curator insight, March 10, 2014 11:36 AM

PowToon, a Chrome Web App (in Beta) is a great presentation tool that can animate and jazz up even the most gray of presentations. Upgrades are available for those who like  a bit extra.

Learn why each of these copy changes increases ROI:


 - Replace "your" with "my"

 - Promote "dollars off," not "percent off"

 - "Don't" beats "do"

 - Use first/second person vs. third person

 - Add "it's free!" to "sign up now"

 - Bonus: Red vs. green
