Martin (Marty) Smith's comment, July 29, 2013 5:56 PM
Not sure I agree with Tim. Social is social. The fact that Pharma is all wound up on itself is more a reflection of pharma than the way the web works. Google makes no distinction betrween pharma content and any other type. Pharma is the one who binds itself up in knots, but universal content and social marketing axioms still apply.
Tim Mustill's comment, July 30, 2013 8:48 AM
I agree the axioms apply Martin but sadly, due to the self -inflicted knots you refer to and regulation there are some aspects of B2C that are just not practical for prescription medicines. Thankfully the barriers are slowly coming down with more big pharma embracing at least some elements of social media.
Martin (Marty) Smith's comment, July 30, 2013 9:03 AM

Why Content Curation and Crowdsourcing Will Change Everything

Why Content Curation and Crowdsourcing Will Change Everything | marketing and content creation | Scoop.it

From the original article by Tom George on his "Internet Billboards".
Here are some interesting excerpts from the post about content curation.
"After having spent the better part of four years curating content from renowned bloggers, journalists and authors as well as building a platform here on Internet Billboards, which has evolved into a wonderful community of content curator’s.

Here is my definition of content curation. A content curator is someone who finds, organizes, presents and shares valuable information (content) in many forms, on a specific topic, in a way that provides special context and or a unique engagement with his or her readers. In actuality when done correctly, over time it positions the curator as an expert in his or her respective field and defines their reputation as a thought leader.

A good curator will mix curation with his or her own original content, to give interpretations for the express purpose of allowing others to form their own conclusions.
...
Why curation and crowdsourcing will and should become more important to you. I will give you ten reasons.
1. There is just too much content;
2. Social Sites Are Full Of Spam;
3. Privacy concerns with big data;
4. Limiting risk and using many minds;
5. Technology must assist us and help us not hinder us;
6. People Will recognize the need to build meaningful relationships;
7. Information will flow freely;
8. Trust and authority will be the new currency;
9. Curation helps you establish relationships with thought leaders;
10. Crowd Sourcing can make things possible..."
