Peretti: Human Curation Beats SEO in the Social Web

Peretti: Human Curation Beats SEO in the Social Web | seo uk | Scoop.it

"Jonah Peretti, a co-founder of Huffington Post and CEO of Buzzfeed, said at PandoMonthly tonight in New York that he doesn’t care about SEO anymore. He views it as a broken system that optimizes for robots, not humans." Erin Griffith reports on Pandodaily.

 

“Media and content are human businesses, and it’s a problem for humans to give so much power to Google, which is a robot” he said.

 

Without saying Google is Skynet and evil, more and more people now see the flaws compared to what information networks like Twitter can produce (not saying the latter is perfect either). His conclusion is that you shouldn't care about SEO anymore but I think there's an even more compelling reason to move to Curation. Google is increasingly taking social signals into account so that Social is becoming the new SEO no matter which angle you take it from:

- whether because your audience will find you first on social networks

- whether because your content will be well positioned in Search results because human curators will pick it up (and therefore Google too).

 

The debate whether SEO still matters or not is not important. What's relevant is that great content that please human genuine interests will surface more than it used to thanks to the work of human curators.

10 Tips for Sentiment Analysis projects

10 Tips for Sentiment Analysis projects | seo uk | Scoop.it

The Sentiment Analysis is an application of Natural Language Processing which targets on the identification of the sentiment (positive vs negative vs neutral), the subjectivity (objective vs subjective) and the emotional states of the document.

During my thesis, I had the opportunity learn about new machine learning techniques but also bumped into some interesting and non-obvious matters. In this article I discuss the things that I found most interesting while working on the Sentiment Analysis project and I provide some tips that you should have in mind while working on similar Natural Language Processing problems.

Making lectures and lessons more interactive with mQlicker

Making lectures and lessons more interactive with mQlicker | seo uk | Scoop.it

As the traditional lecture has come increasingly under fire for being completely out of touch with modern teaching and learning methods, there has been a move by many teachers, conference presenters and lecturers to make their teaching techniques more modern and interactive. One of the key technologies for enabling this has been a range of audience response systems that provide real time responses to polls, questions and surveys while the speakers is actually presenting.

Steph's Journalism Group 2013's curator insight, October 7, 2013 4:22 PM
Chwayita Ceejay January's insight:'

A very interesting tool, that teachers can use inside and outside the formal learning area. Where students can interact with the information live during the lecture (where most interaction should happen anyway) closing the 'cold and insigificant' student-lecturer relationship. Students can respond to the data while the lecture is in progress. As expensive and time-consuming (training) this intiative would be to udertake it would certainly improve lecture attedance. :D

The IAEA in collaboration with the FAO sought to help nations produce mutant wheat varieties resistant to Ug99 through support undertaken at the FAO/IAEA laboratory in Austria. The FAO/IAEA plant breeding and genetics experts use radiation induced mutation techniques, to develop varieties that can withstand drought, saline soil conditions and diseases. Pierre Lagoda, Head of the Plant Breeding and Genetics Section, said, "The robust varieties of rice, wheat, barley, bananas, cassava, indigenous grains and other staple crops that we have developed are contributing to greater food security and agricultural sustainability."

New Context Search Engine For Twitter To Get The Most Relevant Topics, People And Content: Tame

New Context Search Engine For Twitter To Get The Most Relevant Topics, People And Content: Tame | seo uk | Scoop.it

From Official Website:
"Tame analyzes the last 24 hours of your timeline and crunches it down to a top 10 overview of the most relevant hashtags, users and links. Then you can use Tame like a search engine—and get the most relevant topics, people and content.

How does Tame work?
Check out this detailed presentation on Slideshare:
http://www.slideshare.net/Tame_it/tame-product-guideen

Use cases:
- Get a quick overview of your Twitter timeline;
- Keep up with topics you care about;
- Find specific hashtags on certain topics;
- Find opinion leaders and key communicators;
- Keep up with your constituency;
- Take Tame with you..."

From review article on TechCrunch:
"Tame is described as a "context search engine" for Twitter, the mobile and tablet-friendly web app analyses content from your Twitter followers or based on a specific search to algorithmically surface the top hashtags, the Twitter users most mentioned, and the top links shared over the past 24 hours. The idea is to give you an at-a-glance overview of content populated on Twitter via your own Twitter feed or topics that you explicitly wish to delve into, without having to do much upfront work.

In practice, Tame appears to work quite well out the gate. The UI offers a simple three column view consisting of Links, Topics, and People. These are either based on your Twitter timeline — the users you follow — or specific searches that you enter. A slider lets you adjust the time span from 1-24 hours. Clicking on a link, topic or person opens up a panel displaying the originating tweet (or tweets)..."
