Why Curation Is So Important for Popular Content Sharing Sites: The Behance Story

Robin Good's insight:
Here's a video showing the importance of curation for sites like Behance, where thousands of unique pieces of work are submitted every day and a team of a few individuals has to pick and select what to showcase across its different editorial sections.

If you have not heard about it before, Behance describes itself as "The leading online platform to showcase & discover creative work."

Interesting. Well shot. 7/10

Great scoop by Robin showing how Behance depends on curation. Also shows the importance of "do more with less" curation tools such as Scoop.it. One of the most popular pieces I've written was

Content Curation, what is it?
Content curation can be defined as “a proactive and selective approach to sourcing, collecting and publishing digital content relating to a specific (predefined) topic”


Content Curation comes in many forms. You may find it in blogs, feeds, channels (YouTube), dedicated content curation sites (more on that in a second –Scoop.it) and even in the social media links you share.


.......I myself have been using “Scoop.it” for a few weeks now. And I must admit, I am loving it. 


It allows you to not only create a topic to focus your curation around but you can also follow other users topics and ‘re-scoop’ anything relevant. It also has built in sharing and commenting functions making it a breeze to pass your content throughout you major social networks (Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Tumblr).


It doesn’t stop there. They have also created a handy little bookmarklet that allows you to grab any web page you stumble on with relevant content and publish it to your Scoop.it topic (and share it at the same time).


The guys at Scoop.it recently opened up the service to the public and its user base is growing fast. If you want to dabble in creating a curated topic that helps inform and share information then this is as good as any place to start.


So check it out and while there, why not take a look at Matmi’s Scoop.it profile :)
