Randy Rebman's insight:

A good overview of why it is good to curate content. I also think that for teachers the curation of content can be very meaninfult as they apply certain ideas and technology to their teaching. Their curation in a 'niche' can reflect their growth and development.

I'm glad I read this article. I hadn't thought about the value of roundup blog articles.
Alfredo Corell's curator insight, January 16, 2013 5:44 PM

The 5 reasons are:
1. You want to be the main resources in your niche.
2.You want your blog to rank in search results for particular keywords.

3. Your audience wants to know your thoughts on a particular topic.

4. The last time the topic was covered was so long ago, it’s out of date.5. You could get listed in a roundup post about a particular topic.

Digital Curation Resource Guide

Digital Curation Resource Guide | Digital Curation Tools | Scoop.it

Digital curation involves selection and appraisal by creators and archivists; evolving provision of intellectual access; redundant storage; data transformations; and, for some materials, a commitment to long-term preservation. Digital curation is stewardship that provides for the reproducibility and re-use of authentic digital data and other digital assets. Development of trustworthy and durable digital repositories; principles of sound metadata creation and capture; use of open standards for file formats and data encoding; and the promotion of information management literacy are all essential to the longevity of digital resources and the success of curation efforts.

Curating curation topic on Scoop.it

Curating curation topic on Scoop.it | Digital Curation Tools | Scoop.it

Content curation tools are designed to assist the process of searching, collating and sharing existing content. Content curation differs from simple content aggregation in that curators screen for the most relevant content, and often edit or comment it.   By curating content on a topic close to them, brands can position themselves as a go-to expert on that topic and embed their communication into the richer context of external content sources.

 

Content curation tools are multiplying like wild mushrooms. Category leaders, like Pinterest, tumblr and Scoop.it are growing impressively fast. 

 

At the same time, other tools from social media, blogging and search, such as Twitter, Paper.li and Google are strengthening their curation functionality.

 

Observer (like me) are starting to make distinctions among subcategories like Search Curation (Topsy, Feedsquares), Video Curation (Magnify.net), Content Trends curation (Zemanta, Parse.ly), Corporate Curation (Curata, CurationSoft, Digimind), Content Relationships curation (Pearltrees, Mind.it).

 

The most popular category is Social Curation. Social Curation enables users to clip and publically share content (mostly pictures, graphics and video) in the form of attractive personalized mood boards (typical of Pinterest, Bundlr).

A more specialized form of Social content curation helps users turn twitter feeds into threaded stories (Storify, Dashter). 

We can expect much of the Pinterest-style social curation to turn into Shopping Curation à la OpenSky.

We can also expect the debate about content curation and copyright infringment to continue to rage. Attribution to the original source should be a fundamental requirement of Content Curation. But it can be difficult when content is re-"pinned" again and again. Scoop.it is one of the best tools in terms of facilitating content attribution.

Google's algorithmic approach challenged by social curation?

Google's algorithmic approach challenged by social curation? | Digital Curation Tools | Scoop.it

GdeCugis: Interesting take by Hamish McKenzie on Pandodaily. In his opinion, the reason Media Publishers feel bold enough to attack Google and feel entitled to have a revenue share is that Google News is a declining service.

 

He lists Mobile Agregation but also Human Curation as two trends that make its algorithmic filtering less relevant. 

 

So interestingly, while many have attributed to Google's own algorithm changes the demise of services like Wikio, it seems that now Google's own algorithmic approach is challenged by social curation.
