WebProNews interviewed Kate Brodock, the Executive Director of Digital and Social Media at Syracuse University about critical elements of successful content curation on the web.
From her replies:
"People or organizations tend to falter in two areas.
a) In the verification process
b) when they should be giving proper attribution to the original content creator.
These two areas need special attention.”
...proper attribution of the original content creator is very important.
There are many ways to do this on various platforms, and there are generally recognized “best practices” that people use.
If you neglect the attribution part of the equation, this is when you get into sticky situations (no matter what your expert lawyer has told you).
...It pays to take a look at how each platform handles this aspect of curation and make sure you’re dotting your “I”s and crossing your ‘t’s.”
Right on the mark. 8/10
