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"...

Pittsburgh Tote Bag Project's comment, November 25, 2011 6:17 PM
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.

Seth Godin's favorite books for 2013 Readers A diet for your mind | An Eye on New Media | Scoop.it

Many of you you know that I am a huge fan of marketing hero Seth Godin.  Here are some books that he suggests we all read.

 

This list does not just include marketing books. They are about understanding the mind, motivation and the world around us.

Ken Morrison's insight:

A great list of books that Seth Godin suggests we read

Digital Storytelling - DAOW of storytelling

Digital Storytelling - DAOW of storytelling | An Eye on New Media | Scoop.it

Ken's Key Takeaway:

The best way to help students understand the effects of media is for them to become creators of media.  By seeing how they can shape people's perception of a story, they begin to realize how all consumers of media are vlunerable to the bias of the producers.  This is the heart of media literacy.

 

It provides nice framework and primer for digital storytelling.  The focus is on how to use it in an educational environment.  I believe this could be used as a textbook.

I am very happy with that Scoop.it now lets us share links to .pdf addresses.  I don't know when they added the feature, but it makes me happy.  This is one of my favorite .pdf resources for teachers.  They have and updated/expanded one that they share when you subscribe to their email address.  I have it and recommend it, but I chose to not share it to respect their marketing efforts and their hard work in creating it

I really like their site and services.
