Curating Your Own Company News - Step by Step Guide

Curating Your Own Company News - Step by Step Guide | Digitale Curator | Scoop.it

Robin Good: If your company is looking into how to curate their own news stream while creating extra value for readers, this article can help you out in identifying the process and the key steps to take.

 

From the article intro: "Curating news that the media isn't covering can lead to media coverage. And, by extension, it can improve and expand on stories the media are covering.

 

...

 

There's plenty of evidence that business is adopting content curation, but the practice hasn't been around long enough for organizations to innovate more targeted, results-focused uses."

 

Here some of the key steps involved:

 

a) Identify Opportunity

 

b) Select Curators

 

c) Monitor Conversations

 

d) Select and Comment

 

e) Announce and Promote

 

Useful. 7/10

Stephen Dale's curator insight, December 19, 2013 12:51 AM

A useful summary of the current shortcomings in content curation tools and services, and what we features and innovations we might see in this developing market. From the author:

 

"In the near future it is likely that new content curation tools will provide more dedicated features for specific application and uses while becoming more aware of user needs that so far have not been taken into serious consideration (attribution, archiving, monetizing).

While large content curation hubs and platforms are likely to start realizing that their best value yet to be extracted is in the content being curated by their users, new tools will likely target more specific and professional uses rather than the general public needing simply to collect and repost content on their blog or social media channel."

What Content Curation Is and How To Do It Right: Margot Bloomenstein [Video]

Robin Good: Good video with Margot Bloomenstein, brand and content strategist, being interviewed and explaining, in very simple terms what "is" and what "it is not".

 

This is a good introduction to what content curation is, and how it is done as it would be explained to someone who knows nothing or very little about it.

 

Good material to show to top management, executives and to those who may be a bit skeptical about the benefits of doing it as well as for those who are just starting to explore this activity.

 

"It’s not about hoarding content indiscriminately, says Bloomstein. You have to have goals in mind from the outset.

 

Not every bit of content you come across will be relevant to your audience, either.

 

The content curation process is intended to determine what is and isn’t important, in addition to what your readers want to see. Then, it’s your job to get that content in front of them."

 

To the point. Recommended. 8/10

Reduce Information Noise Through Social Curation and Collaborative Discovery: Calm Technology

Reduce Information Noise Through Social Curation and Collaborative Discovery: Calm Technology | Digitale Curator | Scoop.it

Robin Good: Among the five digital trends presently shaping the consumer experience economy, according to Macala Wright who first wrote about this on Mashable, there is one that has as its key objective the reduction of "information noise", distractions and approaches to digital communication that make it harder to grasp and understand a message or to complete a key task one is after.

 

It reads like there is more to information curation than people scanning feeds and selecting relevant items to write about.

 

From the original article I have extracted a few passages: "Calm technology refers to applications that cut down on the digital noise of high-volume data to show the user only enough information that he or she needs to complete a task.

4 Reasons Why Content Curation Has Gone Mainstream

4 Reasons Why Content Curation Has Gone Mainstream | Digitale Curator | Scoop.it

With the help of Pinterest and other consumer-oriented companies, content curation – the process of finding, organizing and sharing online content – has gone mainstream. More and more people are looking to content curation to help them navigate today’s chaotic online world. 

 

Curata’s 2012 Content Curation Adoption Survey - http://bit.ly/L81K0w [PDF] of more than 400 marketers found that the vast majority are utilizing content curation as a key component of their content marketing strategy.

 

Why this entire buzz around content curation? What is driving the adoption of the practice?

 

Key findings from the survey:

Growing quantity led to sinking quality

56% reported finding quality content was their greatest content marketing challenge. The explosion of information on the Web has led to an overwhelming amount of content, making it more challenging to locate the best and most relevant.   

 Marketers look to content curation as a way to help cut through the clutter and provide their prospects with the valuable information for which they are looking.

Trust is invaluable  

85% said that establishing thought leadership was their main content curation objective.

Brands can position themselves as thought leaders in their space as well as go-to resources for prospects. Once this trust is established, prospects are more likely to become customers when they are prepared to buy.

We live in a social world

People increasingly are relying on social media as a resource for the most timely and relevant information.

Through content curation, marketers can quickly and more easily get their content out in the social sphere and keep their prospects aware of industry information.

 Content is powerful  

All major brands today are online – providing their prospects with information. 

What this means for marketers is that being “searchable” and having a “sticky site” are more important than ever.  A key to having a site easily accessible to those who are interested in the specific product or service is search engine optimization. 

By providing fresh and relevant content in an organized way, improves SEO for the site

 

Today, having content online is a must-have for Brands.  

As the online world continues to grow and likely become more chaotic and overwhelming, technologies and strategies for organization and sharing the best, most relevant content will be impossible to ignore.

How ITV News Is Curating Content With New Live Streams Of News

How ITV News Is Curating Content With New Live Streams Of News | Digitale Curator | Scoop.it

Excerpted from article:

"When ITV News launched a new website two months ago the site started presenting news in a way that was radically different from before.

 

They came up with a “digital native” news format that includes tweets and other social media content from the broadcaster’s correspondents, experts and eye witnesses.

 

Jason Mills, editor of web development for ITV News, told Journalism.co.uk:

"The thinking behind the site is that it’s about news now. News is a live process, news continuously comes in and stories develop the whole time. So what we are trying to do is to tell that news in real time.

People now are used to consuming content in a stream, from Twitter to Facebook timelines, and we wanted to take that concept and adapt it to all news.

 

We have a small number of curators to the site and they are curating content, the vast majority of which comes from our correspondents, our producers in the field, and the news desks.

The curators are then using things like Twitter to add to the telling of that story as well.

Twitter is a fantastic way of adding value to existing stories. What are people saying out there, what is the community saying, what are experts saying out there?..."

 

A great example is this story of the death of Robin Gibb of the Bee Gees, which combines tweets from singers Gary Barlow and Lenny Kravitz, TV footage and a written statement from the former Bee Gees manager. It appears more like a curated Storify than a traditional copy-only news story.

Take Your Curation Mobile With The New Scoop.it Android App | Digitale Curator | Scoop.it

Giuseppe Mauriello: After Scoop.it for iPhone (December 2011), Content Curation and Publishing Platform Scoop.it announced its Android app which will bring mobile curation to all Android users.

 

Excerpted from article:

"Much like the iPhone app, the Android app will allow you to leverage the suggestions you’ve configured for your topic as well as suggestions from other users. The publishing window is almost identical to that of the website and, of course, you will have all of your sharing options.

 

But, what’s the best thing about the Scoop.it mobile app for Android? Well, we’ve taken simplicity a step further as the App adds Scoop.it to your browser’s native sharing menu. Now, to curate content you discovered while browsing, you no longer need to copy and paste the URL from your phone’s browser or install the bookmarklet. Content can be posted to Scoop.it by simply clicking your browser’s share button.

 

And just like its iPhone counterpart, the app allows to you do perform essentially all of the tasks of curating your topics without telling anyone you did it from your phone. Whether your posts are published from your phone or from your computer, your topic pages will always sport the same fluid magazine layout..."

Yes, curation wouldn't exist without creation, admits Mark Armstrong, the founder of Longreads and also a team member of Pocket.

 

But, he goes on, there are interesting questions - and perhaps more even more interesting answers - that highlights the value of Curation.

 

As he concludes, every one is a curator - a claim we won't disagree with at Scoop.it : "There is no “us vs. them.” There’s only “we.” So we should all start working harder to have some constructive conversations about how we improve the model."

17 Tips To Help You Become Better At Content Curation

17 Tips To Help You Become Better At Content Curation | Digitale Curator | Scoop.it

Excerpted from article: 

"Over the past few years I must have heard the phrase ‘everyone is a publisher nowadays’ a thousand times or more. It’s largely accurate, due to the rise of social media, but I think we are mainly ‘curators’, as opposed to ‘publishers’.

 

Content curation is something that many of us will be familiar with, even if we don’t think of ourselves as curators. We instinctively find and share interesting content with our personal and professional networks. We follow others who share the kind of links that engage and entertain.

 

Here are my 17 tips to help you become even better at content curation, with one eye on Twitter:

 

1) Set up some feeds

2) Make the most of email alerts

3) Get to grips with Twitter Search

4) Use advanced search queries

5) Follow the 70/30 rule

6) Find the right tools for the job

7) Own a niche

8) Read, read, read!

9) Write, write, write!

10) Timing is crucial

11) Aggregate the good stuff

12) Tune in to the right people

13) Mix up your tweets

14) Don't be afraid of the detail

15) Consider repeating yourself

16) Try to avoid the obvious

17) Use a notebook

 

Each tips is analyzed with some details. Read full article here: http://j.mp/K8AVt4

The Connected Life: Taking A Breath For Conscious Computing

Linda Stone was one of the primary sources for my book, 

http://www.rheingold.com/netsmart -- Howard  

 

"Eighty percent of us seem to have it. I broke the story about it in early 2008 on the Huffington Post, and called the phenomenon, "email apnea." Later in 2008, in talks and interviews, I referred to it interchangeably as "email apnea" and also, as "screen apnea."

Definition: Shallow breathing or breath holding while doing email, or while working or playing in front of a screen.

While we have a greater tendency toward email apnea or screen apnea, while doing email and texting on laptops and smartphones, we are at risk for breath holding or shallow breathing in front of any screen, any time. Not only does this increase stress levels, it impacts our attitude, our sense of emotional well-being, and our ability to work effectively."

Robin Good: YouTube auto-generated channels are channels that are automatically created by dedicated algorithms to collect trending and popular videos by topic.


 


"Auto generated channels act like user channels in that you can subscribe to them and stay updated on new videos.


 


In addition, auto generated channels provide:


 


-> The ability to subscribe and get regular updates about this topic on YouTube on your feed


 


-> A way to find other channels related to this topic


 


-> More context about this topic from Wikipedia or other sources


 


YouTube algorithmically determines the central topics in a video and then uses that information to develop great collections of videos for any topic of interest.


 


These channels do not convey any editorial opinion.
