The Curator Job Is To Unpack Specialized Information To An Interested Audience

As the director of the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, Thomas P. Campbell thinks deeply about curating—not just selecting art objects, but placing them in a setting where the public can learn their stories.

Paula Silva's curator insight, September 1, 2013 8:22 PM

A personal story on curation for educational purposes. Author’s highlights, a testimony of a meaningful curation:

Content curation is not merely selecting sources and aggregate them and even less in an automated style. If you don’t apply your voice, as a storyteller, there will be no engagement with your community.

Content curation implies that each curated resource will acquire a specific (new) meaning,  according to the context it is displayed.

Which service should a curator employ? The best service is not only the one that suits the curator’s narrative and technical skills but also the needs and the consumption information.

OnePlaylist.fm is a new web app which allows you to search YouTube videos and the full Spotify catalog for music tracks and video clips and to collect your preferred ones into shareable playists.


You can also import existing playlists straight from YouTube and Spotify. Not only. Once you have created a playlist, you can synch it with your account on YouTube, Spotify, Rdio, Deezer and many other music services.


Newly created playlists can be set to private or public. Public playlists can be shared on social media, embedded on other web sites, and are always published to a dedicated playlist web page that integrates a video player, all the clips in the playlist, related playlists, and a public analytics chart showing views and Facebook shares for that specific playlist.


The service is powered by Spotify.


My comment: Excellent video and music playlist maker. Powerful and speedy search function makes it easy to find any video or track and to arrange it into a publishable playlist. Excellent solution to create/curate valuable, unique and immediately useful content for your audience.



Free to use.

Big question and straight answer : How is content curation affected by Google's Panda and Penguin updates. 

Jeff Domansky's curator insight, October 3, 2013 4:35 PM

Guillaume Decugis offers a valuable perspective on curation, the impact of Google algorithm changes on SEO and side references of course to Matt Cutts. In a phrase:  "Add value!"

Steve Hartkopf's curator insight, October 7, 2013 3:18 PM

Anytime Matt speaks about SEO we should listen. In this video he specifically discusses SEO and content creation. He recommends a separate website page for old blog posts. I assume Google can identify the old content as separate and, therefore, acceptable rather than someone trying to game the system by throwing up a bunch of old or curated content in hopes of improve search engine results on the back of other people's content.

El arte de curar información en la Web es más que una práctica del conectivismo, es parte de un ejercicio de aprendizaje e inteligencia colectiva.
John Thomas's curator insight, February 12, 2014 5:20 AM

Pawan Deshpande, founder and CEO of Curata, has just published an article that provides some very useful guidelines to content marketers interested in improving their basic content curation skills.

 

The article provides six alternative approaches to curating content, from simple ones like quoting and retitling, to more advanced ones like parallelizing, storyboarding and summarizing.

 

The context provided in this article circles around three key factors:

Quantity of effortSEO valueAdded value

so that you can compare, among the alternative curation approaches presented, the ones that better match your own needs.

 

But, beware. Though content marketing experts have you believe that saving time, seo impact and traffic size are key variables to go after, I remain of the impression that true "added value" provides order of magnitude greater benefits than the other two combined. 

 

In other words, to rank and evaluate the value of a curation approach versus another, I would ask: Does the curation produced help other people make better sense of a topic? Does it allow for others to learn about an issue without having to juggle and research tens of dubious resources? Does it save the reader time in learning about the topic he's interested in while providing him with all the needed info?

 

Having said this, I deem this article particularly useful for content marketers getting interested in content curation, and in learning which approaches they can adopt, besides reposting and sharing the best content they can find, to improve their "value added" propositions.

 

 

Useful. Resourceful. 7/10

Peter B. Sloep's curator insight, June 25, 2013 6:19 AM

Our online or digital identity matters. Whaf if the image we portray of it consists of 'scooped' or 'pinned' materials only? Our identity then is a borrowed one, not even reflecting who we are but who we aspire to be. Of course, curation in the pre-online age was about creation too and so it still should be in the digital age (see also my blog about a year of content creation http://tiny.cc/ncc8yw) (@pbsloep)

Clare Treloar's curator insight, June 25, 2013 6:14 PM
