Thoora Turns Up Most Relevant Content Around Topics That Matter To Users & More

Thoora Turns Up Most Relevant Content Around Topics That Matter To Users & More | "#Google+, +1, Facebook, Twitter, Scoop, Foursquare, Empire Avenue, Klout and more" | Scoop.it

This is a great tool for curators!

 

Intro:

 

"With a Web full of stuff, discovery is a hard problem. Search engines were the first tools on the scene, but their rankings still have a hard time identifying relevance the same way a human user would."

 

Excerpt:

 

Digging For Content

 

Thoora was founded in 2008, and it originally launched as a real-time news aggregator, which we covered back in 2009. But this new iteration is about much more than scanning the news.

 

This is a toolkit for users to explore and research topics, and it learns more about them as its users sort out what matters to them. It is a social tool - users can share topics, and the Thoora site features highlights - but the purpose of the tool is to turn up the most relevant content on the topic, no matter how deeply it's buried in the Web.

 

"We like to say that we're at the intersection of aggregation, curation and search," says Carrie Shaw, head of product at Thoora. As far as users are concerned, that's a good description, but the real value of Thoora comes from the learning algorithms at work behind the scenes. As users create topics, discover content and clean up the results, the Thoora engine gets better at recommendations.

Content Curation: Definition and History

Content Curation: Definition and History | "#Google+, +1, Facebook, Twitter, Scoop, Foursquare, Empire Avenue, Klout and more" | Scoop.it

This very helpful piece by Gianluca Fiorelli on 'I Love SEO' give us a brief history of Content Curation and re-affirms some things that many of us already know.

 

He quotes from Rohit Bhargava’s Content Curation Manifesto and summarizes Bhargava’s 5 models of Content Curation (note that these are hyperlinks!) and ends with his own hints on curation, summarized as Finding the best Content, Adding Value and Crediting.

 

“The future of the social web will be driven by … Content Curators, who take it upon themselves to collect and share the best content online for others to consume and take on the role of citizen editors, publishing highly valuable compilations of content created by others. In time, these curators will bring more utility and order to the social web. In doing so, they will help to add a voice and point of view to organizations and companies that can connect them with customers….” Rohit Bhargava
