How True! "Every act of journalism is an act of curation" - that is as long as what is being reported is accurate and unbiased!

@Janet, Beth and mirmilla : glad you liked this! Special thanks to Beth as this feature is actually the result of a discussion thread we had on Scoop.it months ago about sources & ethics of curation. Don't know if you remember it Beth but we did! ;-)
Deborah Spector's comment, December 12, 2012 10:02 AM
What a difference this makes. I always read the articles before I scoop them. Now I'll be able to add my insights, which I hope will bring more meaning to my growing community. So nice to know your discussions added this feature to the scoop.it platform.
Niels Schuddeboom's comment, December 13, 2012 5:27 PM
But I can't find back the original options to browse scoopits not explicitly followed, based on topics. Where's that?

8 Tips to Get Your Brand on the Social Curation Boom and Beyond

8 Tips to Get Your Brand on the Social Curation Boom and Beyond | MEDIACLUB | Scoop.it

This post was written by Melonie Gallegos for iMediaconnection

 

In this piece, there are 8 tips to help marketers get in on the social curation boom in a meaningful way - that means Pinterest and beyond!

 

Here's an excerpt:

 

"Curation is a long-standing tradition of collecting, saving & organizing objects. Today it takes on a different meaning. Organizataions have evolved from collecting artifacts to digital curation of media and content"

 

When human behavior shifts and it certainly has, (more about that in the article), brands are quick to follow suit.

 

Here are some highlights:

 

There are a lot of websites offfering curation-type services

 

To get a clear sense of how a brand might leverage curation in this article, they have broken them down into categories.

 

**social bookmarking and news

 

**sharing

 

**Aggregation and syndication networks

 

**There are 8 ways your brand can get in on the action

 

Here are a few that caught my attention:

 

Become a curator creator

 

**Create your own Pinterest board and it's more than just slapping images, it takes thought, strategy, being part of the community and continually showing up

 

**appreciating other people's content and having two-way conversations

 

Create an Interest-based content strategy

 

**Focus on the interests of your audience, not your products and services!

 

**Allign their real-life interests with your brand position

Pamela Vaughn posted this on hubspot.com

 

Lots of good information here:

 

Intro:

 

"In inbound marketing, consistent content creation can be beneficial for quite a few reasons."

 

Here's what you need to know:

 

**One of the most powerful roles content can play in inbound marketing is in search engine optimization.

 

**Regularly creating optimized and interesting content is the best way to improve your search engine rankings for your target keywords, increasing your ability to get found online and generate more traffic to your business' website.

 

And what can more traffic lead to? Simple: more leads! Still not convinced that content plays a major role in SEO?

Leah Lesley Christensen's curator insight, December 2, 2013 1:37 PM

Never heard of it - must be worth sharing :)

Robin Good's insight:Introducing content curation to someone who doesn't know anything about it is not always an easy task. There are so many different articles, opinions, definitions and recommendations about content curation that it is quite difficult for someone just getting familiar with the topic, to easily find out where to start and what to trust. To help out anyone needing to support the explanation of content curation to others, here are five comprehensive resource collections I have put together over the course of the last year. 1) Content Curation - Definitions a collection of the best and most useful definitions of what content curation is http://bundlr.com/b/content-curation-definition 2) Content Curation - What is it? Video Intros 30+ short video clips that introduce the need, practice and purpose of content curation http://huzzaz.com/collection/content-curation-what-is-it 3) Content Curation Visualized 110+ infographics, visuals, illustrations and diagrams explaining what content curation is www.pinterest.com/robingood/content-curation-visualized/ 4) Content Curation Tools Directory - Tools Directory 100+ of the best content curation tools organized in a directory for immediate access http://contentcuration.zeef.com/ 5) Content Curation Tools Supermap - Tools Collection 600+ content curation, discovery, filtering and publishing tools organized by categories for doing content curation http://bit.ly/ContentCurationToolsSupermap All free to use and share.

How to Identify Relevant Online Influencers with These 3 Tools

How to Identify Relevant Online Influencers with These 3 Tools | MEDIACLUB | Scoop.it

This piece and infographic is from Adam Vincenzini on his blog.

 

I selected this article because it's another way for you to find key influencers and these tools will help to narrow your search

 

Here are some highlights:

 

Instead of focusing on the subjectivity of this process (and how this insight is deployed) Here's how you can use a combination of free tools to narrow your search.

 

Where do online influencers operate?


**They are active everywhere:

 

     Most popular are:

     blogs, Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, Online

     communities, discussion boards

 

Assumptions:

 

**Influencers are active on Twitter

**Influencers operate some for of blogging hub

 

Focus on the intelligence you can glean from Twitter initially then verify this initial sweep with blog (or relevant hub) data

 

The initial steps involve:

 

1. Search by keyword

2. Search by location

 

3 tools useful in the process: The first two you can also search by location:

 

**followerwonk.com - then run this through another influencer tool -   

     tweetlevel to give it even more relevance (this isn't fool proof)

**locafollow.com

**twingulate.com

 

There are more suggestions in this piece having said that:

 

**No matter how hard we try, a 100% fool proof influence rating is near on impossible because influence is not a science, it can't be.

 

** this can help narrow things down, significantly

Beth Kanter Interviews Robin Good - Insights & Tips On Curation For Non- Profits [Video]

Beth Kanter interviewed Robin Good a few days ago.

 

Robin, I really enjoyed listening to you, I know this is aimed at non-profits but your insights, tips and suggestions are something we can all use. 

 

Here are a few things that caught my attention:

 

**BEFORE you get on the web, decide how much time you're going to spend on there, otherwise it could become addictive, and this can happen if you're not careful (hmmm how many of you can relate to this?) 

 

**Know who your audience is, pick a very specific topic,

 

**be as narrow as you can, find great pieces, pull out what you think would be relevant for them (being too broad doesn't help filter out the noise for these people, it adds to it)

 

I'm going to let you get right to the interview and let Robin tell you more:-)
