Digital media won't ruin our social skills, but we must not use it exclusively The Flat Hat Over the past two decades, communication has changed drastically as people rely more on digital media to stay in touch with others.
"Fact #1: You don't need to be a content producer to market with content. Fact #2: Not all curators work in museums and have elbow patches."
Interesting analysis on the role curation can play in a content marketing strategy, coming from... a content creator.
Sharon Hurley Hall is a professional copywriter & blogger who wrote this as a guest post on Unbounce's blog (and you can find her on Scoop.it here). While she makes a living creating content, she rightly shows how curation makes sense in a Marketing Strategy (which to me doesn't mean creation doesn't or that the two should be opposed when they actually complete one another as - I think - we both agreed in the comments).

Instead of constantly pushing out messages through banners spread far and wide, they can pull in their desired audience by sharing content those customers will enjoy, and then retain those customers for long-term interaction with the brand.
This gives the brand additional opportunities to develop a deeper relationship with their customers without additional media spend, and puts the focus on a channel that they have much more control over.
Curating content that customers will enjoy does take time, and you can’t be everywhere at once, so brands need to choose channels wisely, but for those that have the personality and the resources it takes, content curation can be a great way to attract and retain an audience that will trust the brand for more than just a one time sale."
