CurationSoft lets publishers curate content from across the social sphere | The Next Web

CurationSoft lets publishers curate content from across the social sphere | The Next Web | Lowton's Scoop (it) on Social Media in Education | Scoop.it

There’s a growing market for content curation, where people dedicate time to sift through the information rubble and extract the best articles, videos, photos…whatever…for a particular audience. Techmeme, for example, pulls together all the best pieces from across the many technology blogs and news websites, and arranges these links into a single, easy-to-scan page. It’s partly automated, but it does have direct human editorial input too.

 

Content curation, in a nutshell, means finding the most relevant, high quality content on a given subject and sharing it with a specific target audience. And CurationSoft is a new tool to help the content curation cause.

 

CurationSoft is a software startup based in Indiana, in the north-east of the US. The desktop software lets publishers gather content from across multiple platforms, and publish it as a single piece......

Backchannel Learning in an Organizational Setting

Backchannel Learning in an Organizational Setting | Lowton's Scoop (it) on Social Media in Education | Scoop.it
Many teachers, trainers, and presenters have been resisting the use of mobile devices during their sessions. To quote a famous Star Trek line, "Resistance is futile." The influx of smart phones is only going to continue, so resistance only delays the inevitable. It is also shortsighted, as the usage of mobile devices during sessions is not a risk at all; it is an opportunity.

New social media search tool, Proliphiq, is powered by the people | The Next Web

New social media search tool, Proliphiq, is powered by the people | The Next Web | Lowton's Scoop (it) on Social Media in Education | Scoop.it

The New Search Engine for Sources of Real-Time News.

 

That being said, when I was introduced to Proliphiq, a service that defines itself as a new social media search tool focusing on providing users with, and becoming, truly credible sources for real-time content, I wondered if it could truly deliver.

Instead of relying on AI or machine-based guesswork to determine how influential a user is on a specific topic, Proliphiq instead relies upon the combined opinions and suggestions of its actual user base along with statistical analysis to provide a more accurate score.

Proliphiq’s ranking system scores profiles based on three metrics:

- Engagement
- Credibility
- Audience


What makes the service unique is how it determines these metrics. By deeply integrating user reviews along with “personality” and “tone”, Proliphiq manages to create an entirely original tool that better engages those using the platform and hopefully provides a more accurate way to measure ourselves and our peers on the social scale.....
