The Future of News Journalism Will Be Built Around Curation and Trust

Robin Good's curator insight, February 3, 4:45 AM



Valuable insight for those interested in seeing how news curation and editor's choice approaches in journalism can benefit both the publisher and its audience a lot more than simply picking and aggregating interesting stories from other sites.


One key relevant difference between aggregating news stories from other sources and editorially curated content is the role of the curator, a tangible person with specific value and ethics who readers come to respect, identify with and ultimately trust for his / her choices in what they should be paying attention to.


"Editors could become curators, cultivating the best work from both inside and outside the newsroom. 
...
We can form a relationship with a good curator, sometimes even a two-way relationship when we can use social networks to start a conversation with them at any moment.


Curation and trust may indeed form the basis of a new symbiotic relationship between information seekers and subject-matter expert curators that will gradually displace the value of traditional algorithmic search.

"...some have even predicted that the future of finding content on the web will be through editorial curation, not search engine optimization.

In 2013, Brittany Botti, co-founder and social lead of the digital marketing agency Outspective wrote, “In the future, people will look to other people instead of algorithms to find what they are looking for.” 


The paper includes valuable links to examples of curated newsletters and other news publications. 


Truthful. 8/10

How information moves between cultures | Larry Hardesty | MIT News

How information moves between cultures | Larry Hardesty | MIT News | DigHumanities | Scoop.it

By analyzing data on multilingual Twitter users and Wikipedia editors and on 30 years’ worth of book translations in 150 countries, researchers at MIT, Harvard University, Northeastern University, and Aix Marseille University have developed network maps that they say represent the strength of the cultural connections between speakers of different languages.

This week, in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, they show that a language’s centrality in their network — as defined by both the number and the strength of its connections — better predicts the global fame of its speakers than either the population or the wealth of the countries in which it is spoken.

“The network of languages that are being translated is an aggregation of the social network of the planet,” says Cesar Hidalgo, the Asahi Broadcasting Corporation Career Development Assistant Professor of Media Arts and Sciences and senior author on the paper. “Not everybody shares a language with everyone else, and therefore the global social network is structured through these circuitous paths in which people in some language groups are by definition way more central than others. That gives them a disproportionate power and responsibility. On the one hand, they have a much easier time disseminating the content that they produce. On the other hand, as information flows through people, it gets colored by the ideas and the biases that those people have.”
