3 Ways Content “Curation” Can Boost Content “Creation”

3 Ways Content “Curation” Can Boost Content “Creation” | An Eye on New Media | Scoop.it

Content curation seems to be the only sanity-saving cure to information overload! Still, content marketers often face the dilemma of weighing the pros and cons of content creation versus content curation.

 

We have been looking at curation and creation as a two separate practices. Yet I beg to differ: content curation can give a huge boost to content creation and that is the key point I want to make in this article.

 

Content curation can help in refining created content in three different ways.


1. Curated Content Can Inspire Topics For Created Content...

2. Build On Curated Content To Create Your Own Content...

3. Use Curated Content As A “Teaser” To Drive Traffic To Your Own Content...

 

I can’t think of a better way to sum up this article than sharing the following quote:
"Strangely enough, curation shifts the balance of power back to brands and publications. While anyone can make content, the decision to gather it, and present it by trusted content curators has more risk, and therefore more value"...

Hi Beth,
I agree with you, I love the feeling of community and the collective wisdom, and you know "curation resonates with me":-)

This has me thinking critically about how we are integrating social media. Inviting interaction has been a huge challenge. We are stimulating new conversations in real world time, but that's not reflected in comments and so forth. I like using Scoop.It widgets to get the newest scoop onto the bog in a timely manner and take some time to reflect on post content.

Thank you for sharing this thorough argument. I agree with many parts. I feel that if we can't have balance, we shoulr error on the side of non-tech.

I also think that is is vitally important that this article does not ignore the non-tech cost of investing in tech. Adding a few tech support professionals and insurance is a crucial cost. Not to mention training costs and/or frustration during the beginning of the learning curve.

Sometimes I forget these points when advocating tech to others.
Great article.
Ken

Hi Ken, you're absolutely right. There is also another aspect - poor pedagogy is still poor pedagogy with tech. Technology does not substitute good teaching nor can disguise poor pedagogy.
