Robin Good: Everytime I see a new post or article claiming to list the best content curation tools I know I am in for some disappointment.
Most of these lists just pick up names from other lists without even bothering to check, test or verify what these tools actually do, whether they are still available. Unfortunately the rush to put out "curated" list of tools and services has created more misinformation than useful lists.
But if you, like me, are on the lookout for new and effective tools to curate your own content or the one of your customers, I have created a comprehensive map of all the curation tools available online and I keep it fresh and updated almost on a daily basis.
The map presently lists over 250 content curation tools which you can navigate much more easily than it was possible on my earlier versions of this map.
On the right side of the map you will find all of the news and content curation tools available online today. On the left side, you can find bookmarking, link lists builders, clippers and lots of tools to operate with RSS feeds (which are still at the heart of a curator's job).
Many social media pundits claim that content curation will prove to be the next biggest thing in the arena of online entrepreneurship and obviously, freelancers, Web Designers and Developers Daily Resource.
Susan Gunelius does a great job of suggesting how to put to good use the content curation potential on your own blog site.
Here her first two recommendations:
1) Publish Editorialized Content that You've Curated: It's important to understand the difference between content aggregation, content syndication, and content curation before you can effectively curate content to publish on your blog.
2) Publish Curated Round-up Blog Posts: You could publish a weekly round-up post where you share links and descriptions of great content from multiple sources about a specific topic. You can even add your own brief commentary with each link.
Content creation is playing a greater part in brand strategies, to the point that it's now one of the main concerns for businesses.
However, probably the most important aspect of your content strategy is to have one in the first place. Often when a company blog, Facebook page or Twitter account has been passed around between agencies or by internal staff, the content can become very disjointed without supporting the brand in question or serving any real purpose for the audience.
So, think cross-device.
A real challenge for brands today is how your content fits across multiple devices. With access online now diversifying across desktop, smartphones and tablets, you need to have a strategy that takes all three into account. Your content is inevitably going to show up on all three of this so it must be created in that way.
