BuzzFeed has the hottest, most social content on the web. We feature breaking buzz and the kinds of things you'd want to pass along to your friends.
Kelly Cordingley's insight:

Buzzfeed--the ultime way to kill time at work, when you're bored, or when you're avoiding homework. However, Buzzfeed is a genius idea. The curated content on the site can keep you entertained or informed for hours. While, yes, they do have hundreds of puppy pictures to look at, they do also have newsworthy information. Regardless of what the site is used for, the amount of curated pieces are what make the site so well-know and absolutley fantastic!

TechWell | Big Data, Big Brother, and Big Questions

TechWell | Big Data, Big Brother, and Big Questions | Learning the way of curation to enhance a product, idea, or piece of work. | Scoop.it
We should all be aware of our credit score—the important number used to determine interest rates and insurance costs. What you may not be aware of is how big data is being used to score you on many areas of your daily life. Joe Townsend explores the connection between big data and big brother.
Kelly Cordingley's insight:

This article, heck this site, is full of curated material. This author pulls from CNN, Forbes, and The Washington Post among others. As a friend told me when she referred me to this site, "there are so many reputable tech sites, it's never difficult to find articles to cite." 

Not only does this article help exemplify how useful curation really is, it also delves into Big Data, which is something else related to curation. There is so much important data out there right now, it's nearly impossible to harness if all. So, the curation of this Big Data is essential to gain the maximum amount of knowledge.

Kelly Cordingley's insight:

Anderson Cooper, along with many other anchors, use curation. On Twitter, they link back to their interviews, articles relating to their subject, and places they've gathered information from,  and then they manage to sum it up in 140 characters or less. Using Twitter has become increasingly popular among news personalities to create more traffic, get more views, or just get the news out there in a different way to a unique audience.

Here's a good example of content creation by The Huffington Post. here's an example that you can get SEO juice from curated content.
Kelly Cordingley's insight:

This article outlines some of the ways that The Huffington Post uses curation for their users. The Huffington Post is a leader in curation because it pulls so much information from a plethora of sources into an article, then will link back to those original sources and sites. However, The Huffington Post does receive criticism about how much the curate and that they don't do "real reporting". However, their articles are useful and offer an easy way to retrieve information.

My speech is over the legalization of marijuana, so how fantastic is this article going to be?

Absolutly fantastic!

Armed men seize police stations in eastern Ukraine
Fox News
A regional news website said another police station had been seized in the town of Krasnyi Lyman, a town near Slovyansk, but that report could not immediately be confirmed.
Kelly Cordingley's insight:

While this just looks a like a regular news article from Fox news, is is among many news articles nowadays that are curating content and synthesizing it within their article. This article does have some of its own reporting, but it also links to an article by the Wall Street Journal that it had retreived some of its information from. Linking to an article within an article, either to one from the same organization or to a different news organizations bebefits both parties. It allows the reader to interact more with the initial article, and it increases traffic for both news organizations. More and more sources are linking to articles from elsewhere on the Internet. As this is becoming a norm in the industry, it is increasing the need for good content curation and synthesis of sources. Not that is wasn't before, but journalism is becoming a collaborative effort. With this being the case, it is and will become even more important to rise above and produce the best work in all aspects.

The Huffington Post has specialized sections (money,rights, entertainment, etc.) and their general news section. They're master curators, and the have been doing it since the beginning.

Kelly Cordingley's insight:

This article from the Library of Congress breaks what curation is into smaller, digestable pieces. Even the author of the articles admits to being confused by what the heck curation means and what it is used for. So, he's used examples of other aspects of life we're accustomed  to seeing curated.

This is a good example of a business, NBC in this case, using their own content to curate. This will, in turn, generate more views on previous stories. It's a way of giving them another chance to get higher views and generate more traffic by rehashing articles from earlier in the day or week.

This is pretty basic, but sometimes basic just gets the point across best. Curation should be of something you love and are interested in for others to be curious.To create something totally new is a big leap, especially for a college kid. But, to curate information and present the best of something in a new, different way is very feasible.

Flipboard Partners with CNN, Acquiring Curation Tech from Competitor Zite, Too

Flipboard Partners with CNN, Acquiring Curation Tech from Competitor Zite, Too | Learning the way of curation to enhance a product, idea, or piece of work. | Scoop.it

CNNFlipboard is responding to the threat imposed by Facebook's new Paper app by buying another rival and striking a content partnership with news giant CNN.

Kelly Cordingley's insight:

CNN is partnering with Flipboard, "a popular news curating app". This will allow CNN to get more views, but this article points out that the partnership highlights CNN's "failure to expland into the cutting-edge digital realm under its own auspices." With that in mind, it begs the question of where news is going in the future. It is becoming, for lack of better words, more of a group effort than a single anchor or publication.
