I think it's interesting that #BlackEdu has been around for over 2 years, but not even recognized. #racism #exclusion

Twitterology: A New Science? Could This Reveal Vital Info for the Future?

Twitterology: A New Science? Could This Reveal Vital Info for the Future? | HigherEd Technology 2013 | Scoop.it

Great article written by Ben Zimmer, a former On Language columnist for The New York Times Magazine, executive producer of VisualThesaurus.com & Vocabulary.com.  This appeared on Sunday in The New York Times

 

"For researchers, Twitter provides virtually limitless data about language in action."

 

Here are a few gems:

 

**Twitter is many things to many people, but lately it has been a gold mine for scholars in fields like linguistics, sociology and psychology who are looking for real-time language data to analyze.

 

**Twitter’s appeal to researchers is its immediacy — and its immensity.

 

**Regardless of how unserious Twitter exchanges may appear on the surface, linguists are discovering that Twitter can help uncover truths about our social interactions that are quite serious indeed.

 

James W. Pennebaker, a social psychologist at the University of Texas who pioneered the text-analysis program often used in this kind of research, warns that positive and negative emotion words are the “low-hanging fruit” in such studies, and

 

**that deeper linguistic analysis should be explored to provide a “richer, more nuanced view” of how people present themselves to the world.


But even if we can’t expect Twitter to be an unerring emotional barometer, it is proving extremely valuable for understanding how language varies among different demographic groups.

Curation Plays A Major Role in Successful Content Strategy - Here's Why

Curation Plays A Major Role in Successful Content Strategy - Here's Why | HigherEd Technology 2013 | Scoop.it

This is an interesting article by Byron White, Founder of IdeaLaunch.


I love the way the author has positioned curation as a key element in content marketing strategy. He says that curation starts with the selection process of the right articles, then researching the assets of the competition.


In addition to adding context, also part of the process is learning how much content you need, how frequently to publish it and which channels of distribution, (social especially) required to capture organic market share.


Having said that, here are a few things the author said and my comments:


He says -"Who will win the content curation war of the web? The race to transform to high-quality publishing is officially on. It’s time to gather ideas, develop stories and publish quality content that keeps readers (and customers) coming back for more".


I say, I don't  think it's a war, I think it's an evolution, I think there will be many winners, it's not a race


He says, "We’ve all heard the expression Content is King. After all, content is the fuel behind the social media revolution currently sweeping the Web. Close examination of the art world, however, offers a solid case that curation, not content, may in fact be the ruler online."


I say:  I think it's a combination of both, original and curated content are both ruler online. I don't think it's either or.


What do you think?


Here's what caught my attention:


**The skill and savvy of a Content Strategist is equally as important as your Director of Marketing these days.


**Getting the right content to the right prospects at the right time is the key to content marketing success.

 

****But in the end, it’s not content that’s king. Instead, it’s the impact that the content has on us long after we pass it by.


****Great content is hard to create, curate, optimize and distribute. But when it all comes to together, it is the catalyst that makes your business better. And better than that.
