New Community Curation Platform For Quality Minds To Share Quality Content: Newsana

New Community Curation Platform For Quality Minds To Share Quality Content: Newsana | Multimedia Journalism | Scoop.it

A Toronto-based media website Newsana is opening public beta testing today; it is a social platform for news junkies that curates the highest quality content possible, as voted on by its users.

 

From "FAQ" page:

"Newsana is an community of passionate people who are dedicated to finding and discussing quality news and ideas from around the world. Our members share and vote on their favourite stories which determines the Top 5 Essential Stories of the day from a variety of topics.

 

It’s not new to have a community based on finding and sharing news, but only Newsana creates a community for quality minds to share quality content.


This is done by:

- Filtering out the noise. We provide members with an easy guide to the Top 5 Essential Stories per topic, not a shotgun blast of information that’s impossible to keep up with.

- Elevating the conversation.

- Higher standards. We don’t have an open door policy; our members must apply and show they are passionate about making the Internet a better place.

 

By focusing our activity on finding Top 5 Essential Stories in any given topic, we’re bringing much-needed context, and smart conversation, to the often chaotic online news landscape.

 

In order to maintain that quality and make sure our community standards are upheld, we require that everyone who pitches a story is a Newsana member..."

DISCUSS: I am not a brand

DISCUSS: I am not a brand | Multimedia Journalism | Scoop.it
DISCUSS is a series in which IdeasTap members who are part of our Creative Space programme debate issues around the arts. Today, Jessica Holland asks, does thinking of yourself as a brand make you feel powerful or pathetic…?
Andy Bull's insight:

Good reflection on branding for any journalist aiming to build a personal brand.

For me, the bottom line is 'do good journalism'. The follows will come, and your personal brand will build. Do bad journalism and you won't build a brand. 

Why build a personal brand? Because being a part of your employer's corporate brand is fine, but not enough. And Twitter, facebook, LinkedIn etc give any journalist the ideal platforms to build that personal brand.

Most sites using images do it very casually, without putting in a lot of thought. Why would they when the image is just somehting they picked up to drop into the post. It has not meaning to them and often it is pretty meaningless in the post too. It's just what you are expected to do now. Every post should have an image.

I wish sites would go back to the day when people created their own artwork to illustrate posts.

Why we need a better conversation about the future of journalism education | Poynter.

Create. Inform. Engage.| Journalism training, media news & how to's (Why we need a better conversation about the future of #journalism education | Poynter.: http://t.co/RTxUI1eRuZ)...
Andy Bull's insight:

From the post: "Some schools, including the University of Colorado, Indiana University and Emory University, have made the decision to do away with their standalone journalism programs. The reason, oversimplified, is that the trade school model of teaching journalism, which has never fit comfortably in research universities, falters when the jobs supporting it are shrinking.

"The universities, however, are walking away at exactly the wrong moment. The trade school model is giving way to something better, a change many of us have been advocating for years. In the process, research universities now have a larger responsibility and role to play in helping rethink and revive civic discourse and ensuring journalism has a sustainable and ethical role in that. The opportunity will require new approaches. But it is not the time to leave the field because it doesn’t ring the cash register the way it used to."

Flipboard: Now You Can Publish Your Own 'Magazine' | ReadWrite

Flipboard: Now You Can Publish Your Own 'Magazine' | ReadWrite | Multimedia Journalism | Scoop.it

Excerpted from article on ReadWrite:

"The news-reading app Flipboard announced a major update — one that, among other things, allows users to create their own personalized "magazines" for public viewing. Although "allow" might be too generous. "Imposes on users by default" might be closer to the truth.

 

From Flipboard's announcement:

Using the new Plus “+” button found on items in Flipboard or by using the new Flipboard Bookmarket for the web, readers can fill their magazines with content that expresses a point of view, reflects personal tastes or shares ideas they find inspiring.

 

The new features aren't intended for readers only. Flipboard hopes existing publishers will use its new functions to promote articles and other material from their archives:

For publishers this is a new way to share archival content, publish great collections or package together stories in a totally new way on Flipboard. 

 

The unique thing here, though, is the way Flipboard effectively publishes its users' preferences to the world as personalized "magazines" — by default, of course:

'Because magazines are public, they can grow an audience and others can like items, comment on posts, or even subscribe to other people’s magazines. When people interact with a magazine, the curator learns about it through new Flipboard Notifications.

For each item that’s flipped into a magazine, attribution back to the source is preserved, and if the content is from a social network interactions such as commenting, retweeting or liking are reflected back to the originating social network.'

 

Flipboard also announced "Content Search," a search box at the top of every page that "lets readers find anything being shared on Flipboard."

Laura Brown's comment, April 11, 2013 11:11 AM
@Ron - One of the things I like about content curation at Scoop.it is that the images are clickable to take you to the content. So are the headlines and the link is in small print too, listed as the source. So, there are three ways to get back to the source of the content. I try to do the same on my own sites when I curate content or reference someone else. I hadn't really thought about the link at the end of the post being more or less visible. But, I think you are right. It should stand out more than it often does.
Andreas Kuswara's comment, April 17, 2013 9:05 PM
maybe rather than placing the link at the bottom, instead placing it on the top. like Scoop.it, placing it straight next to the title.
Andreas Kuswara's curator insight, April 17, 2013 9:06 PM
interesting to ponder... just seems that copyright will remain problematic if not more in the future.
