Why Human Filters are the Future of the Web

Why Human Filters are the Future of the Web | Cyberlearning | Scoop.it

Karyn Campbell wrote this piece for Sparksheet - Great Observations and so true!

 

Intro:

 

"Before news aggregators, content curators, and Google’s omnipotent algorithm, the world’s information was sorted by real human beings."

 

Here's what caught my attention:

 

It comes down to trust

 

The web has offered us incredible options for how we buy products, talk to our friends, or experience media. Remember that adage “quality over quantity”? We can take that phrase literally online – quantity won’t go away; quality will just sit atop.

 

Sometimes we want someone to tell us, consistently, what’s true and what’s good. No wonder YouTube just relaunched its music page, enlisting writers for Vice, Spin and other major vloggers to curate its featured content.

 

**As Steve Jobs more radically put it, “It’s not the consumers’ job to know what they want.”

 

It comes down to trust. Because we are all so well trained in the art of branding, arguably at the expense of crafting things worthy of distribution,

 

**it becomes hard to trust the advice of a Wild West web.

 

Still, we’ll continue to take the word of our favourite industry insider, celebrity or uncle.

 

**Likewise, the smartest companies in this space will calibrate expertise with automation, math with emotion.

 

**Whether she’s a kid writing code or a poet in-the-making, look for the next generation Steve Jobs to carry on building, hiring, and perfecting these filters.

 

Absolutely!

30+ Cool Content Curation Tools for Personal & Professional Use

30+ Cool Content Curation Tools for Personal & Professional Use | Cyberlearning | Scoop.it

As the web becomes more and more inundated with blogs, videos, tweets, status updates, news, articles, and countless other forms of content, “information overload” is something we all seem to suffer. It is becoming more difficult to weed through all the “stuff” out there and pluck out the best, most share-worthy tidbits of information, especially if your topic is niche. Let’s face it, Google definitely has its shortcomings when it comes to content curation and the more it tries to cater to all audiences, the less useful it becomes.

 

The demand for timely, relevant content that is specific to our unique interests and perspectives has given rise to a new generation of tools that aim to help individuals and companies curate content from the web and deliver it in a meaningful way. These new tools range from simple, application-specific types such as social media aggregators and discovery engines, to more complex, full-blown publishing solutions for organizations.

 

Here’s a look at over 30 content curation tools.....
