Amazon.com: Net Smart: How to Thrive Online (9780262017459): Howard Rheingold, Anthony Weeks: Books

"Like it or not, knowing how to make use of online tools without being overloaded with too much information is an essential ingredient to personal success in the twenty-first century. But how can we use digital media so that they make us empowered participants rather than passive receivers, grounded, well-rounded people rather than multitasking basket cases? In Net Smart, cyberculture expert Howard Rheingold shows us how to use social media intelligently, humanely, and, above all, mindfully.

Mindful use of digital media means thinking about what we are doing, cultivating an ongoing inner inquiry into how we want to spend our time. Rheingold outlines five fundamental digital literacies, online skills that will help us do this: attention, participation, collaboration, critical consumption of information (or "crap detection"), and network smarts. He explains how attention works, and how we can use our attention to focus on the tiny relevant portion of the incoming tsunami of information. He describes the quality of participation that empowers the best of the bloggers, netizens, tweeters, and other online community participants; he examines how successful online collaborative enterprises contribute new knowledge to the world in new ways; and he teaches us a lesson on networks and network building."

How To Distinguish High Value Curation From Republishing: What Makes A True Curator Great? | MasterNewMedia

How To Distinguish High Value Curation From Republishing: What Makes A True Curator Great? | MasterNewMedia | An Eye on New Media | Scoop.it

Today content curation is "sold", promoted and marketed as the latest and trendiest approach to content production, SEO visibility, reputation and traffic building. But is it really so? Is it really true that by aggregating many content sources and picking and republishing those news and stories that you deem great is really going to benefit you and your readers in the long run? Is the road to easy and effortless publishing via curation tools a true value creation business strategy, or just a risky fad? How can one tell?

 

Robin Good clarifies few key points in his article:

1. Curation can be effective only...

2. Shallow curation efforts...

3. Curation is an effective means to...

4. The key element that makes curation work is the competence...

 

For these reasons, Robin Good thinks that much of the apparent new curation work being done is bound to be soon disappointed by the results it will gain.

 

Robin Good's goal is to help you understand how you can start to evaluate and distinguish value-creating content curation, from shallow aggregation, noise-making republication and pure content regurgitation before it is too late or someone else in your same niche will have done it before you.

 

How Do You Recognize a Quality Content Curator: 

- Optimizes titles...

- Edits / rewrites titles...

- Formats curated content with microscopic precision...

- Selects and adds relevant images...

- Excerpts selected text...

- Writes his/her own intro...

 

How Do You Recognize a Wasteland-Filler - Aggregator - Republisher?

- No Additional Value...

- No Editing...

- No selection...

- No filtering...
