Critical Aspects of Content Curation In The Newsroom: Link and Attribution Are Essential - Steve Buttry

Critical Aspects of Content Curation In The Newsroom: Link and Attribution Are Essential - Steve Buttry | MEDIACLUB | Scoop.it

Robin Good: Steve Buttry, who has already written several articles on content curation (see the end of his original article), just published this in-depth essay celebrating the launch of a new curation team at Digital First Media and pointing to many of the critical factors neeeded for a content / news curator to be effective.


He covers a lot ground while giving a particular emphasis to the importance of linking and attribution. He writes: "Where you can’t learn much about the source of content you’re curating, consider crowdsourcing the question: Note the name and organization, tell readers what you’ve found and that you’re continuing research and ask them what they know about the source.


Where the source of online content is unclear, you should be clear about what you know and where you found the material."


and...


"Sometimes the name of a person or organization is not sufficient attribution.


If the person or organization is not well-known, do a little research (Google will provide quick answers in many cases; sometimes an “about us” page will help).


Especially in political content, you want to note whether you are linking to partisan sources. A liberal or conservative think tank or political action committee is an entirely different kind of source from a professional media outlet or an independent fact-checking site."


Steve Buttry also includes some valuable key guidelines on "how to add value" when curating content and suggests several types of curation approaches that can be used in the newsroom.


Good advice on curation and practical tips. 8/10

Hi Robin,
in this period I am busy, and I have no time to discover news and curate my topic.
Thank you so much for your great curation!

Drag and Drop News Curation: Storify for iPad Is Here

Robin Good: The new Storify news curation tool is now available for the iPad, bringing the ease of drag and drop to the curation world. 

 

"Founded in 2009, this seven person company has done a remarkable job surviving the market and being one of the major players in the world of content curation.

 

...

 

[Storify has been adopted by] 22 out of top 25 news sites in the United States...

 

Just like Twitter has their trending topics, Storify’s service allows people to keep track of the relevant social media trending topics. Users are able to tell their own story about these major events (like Whitney Houston or Greece’s economic downfall or even Madonna’s Super Bowl halftime performance), and embed them on their own website.

 

Be your own crowd-sourced storyteller, by dragging in tweets, status updates, photos, and videos from a variety of social networks in order to help you create a better story and telling experience."

Personal News Curation: A Reference Guide To The Present, That's What Journalism Could Be

Personal News Curation: A Reference Guide To The Present, That's What Journalism Could Be | MEDIACLUB | Scoop.it

Robin Good: If you want to question your well-established assumptions about how we may want to satisfy our insatiable craving for news in the age of filters, algorithms and personalization, this is an article I highly recommend you to read.


Jonathan Stray, on NiemanLab, looks into a tough question: assuming we really need to keep ourselves updated via the news, in this age of superabundance of information, "who should see, what, when?".


In his effort, he does an excellent job of clarifying two very critical points, that both journalists and media tend to easily overlook when they try to look at the future of news journalism and its business models:


1) There is more than one audience.
The internet is not about broadcasting to a mass audience, but rather a medium to precisely intercept a group of people characterized by a common interest or by an issue that affects them.


2) The news isn't just what's new.

"...journalism came to believe that only new events deserved attention, and that consuming small, daily, incremental updates is the best way to stay informed about the world.


It’s not.


Piecemeal updates don’t work for complex stories.


Wikipedia rapidly filled the explanatory gap, and the journalism profession is now rediscovering the explainer and figuring out how to give people the context they need to understand the news."


Indeed the context and the level of personalization does determine the usefulness and value of any news service to its end users. Thus,

as he rightly writes, "Journalism could be a reference guide to the present, not just a stream of real-time events." and it is hard not to agree with such a vision.


Mr Stray suggests then the use of three specific criteria to identify which news we should be exposed to. He writes: "Three key words should determine who gets served what: Interest, effects, and agency" and then provides a detailed explanation of the "why" behind these.


Finally, he goes on to suggest that: "...we’ll need a combination of human curators, social media, and sophisticated filtering algorithms to make personalized feeds possible for everyone.


Yet the people working on news personalization systems have mostly been technologists who have viewed story selection as a sort of clickthrough-optimization problem.


If we believe that news has a civic role — that it is something at least somewhat distinct from entertainment and has purposes other than making money — then we need more principled answers to the question of who should see what when."


I agree wholeheartedly.


Must read. 9/10
