This is an interesting article, good suggestions.

s can filter. Only humans can curate.When a human curates, she does three things. She selects something (or things) from a larger group. She organises those selections cohesively. And she arranges to present those things in such a way that people find it easy to engage with those things.

 

What I thought I’d do in this post is to look at all this a little more closely, all in the context of the social enterprise.

 

First, let’s look at selection.

 

The simplest and commonest form of selection in social networks is the asymmetric follow (a phrase I first heard used by James Governor). You follow someone or something, you subscribe to that someone or something. Elect to receive updates, alerts, reports. That doesn’t mean they follow you.
