Insights Into the Hot Trend of Social Media Content Curation

Insights Into the Hot Trend of Social Media Content Curation | niggleburgoo | Scoop.it

In the guest post published by Jeff Bullas' blog, Intervistato.com's Maria Petrescu interviews Scoop.it's co-founder Marc Rougier after giving her own insights on why curation is a much needed trend.

 

"Online content curation is a hot trend as business owners and professionals realize that content is vital to add value to their customers and prospects. The trend was already evident in 2011 but 2012 saw an outright explosion of the phenomenon. Also important is delivering and sharing that content on your social media networks." she writes.

 

She comes back with Marc on the background behind Scoop.it: "The founders were literally in love with social media, but had no time to produce content. They had already been working on another platform, where they published content organized in topics. People loved it, but after a while they felt the growing need of getting content that was more specific, based on their single interests."

 

Plus other interesting insights and a video of the interview. Check it out!

The 21st-Century Digital Learner

The 21st-Century Digital Learner | niggleburgoo | Scoop.it

After hosting dozens of these conversations, I realize one thing: We just don't listen enough to our students. The tradition in education has been not to ask the students what they think or want, but rather for adult educators to design the system and curriculum by themselves, using their "superior" knowledge and experience.

Aunty Alice's curator insight, October 24, 2013 2:27 PM

Just as speaking is the outcome of listening, so writing is the outcome of reading, not the other way round. Listening to the student should also include "listening" to their writing. ie., analyse what they are saying and how they are doing it.  When students evaluate their own work, the teacher should listen and guide them to ways of improving it, whether it be punctuation, paragraphing, spelling, or word or subject knowledge.  This is how we bring students on board and empower them to learn. 

Aunty Alice's curator insight, October 31, 2013 1:49 PM

Listening to students has two aspects; listening to what they say orally, and 'listening' to their writing which is only another way of talking, only through a code. Just as learning to speak is tied closely to listening to what is said and being exposed to words that help one to think better, so writing is the same  and relies on reading "or listening" to what others say and how they say it to express clear meaning. The two subjects, reading and writing, are closlely intertwined yet we compartmentalize them in the literacy curriculum. An example of adults thinking they know what is best for children.

The Soldiers & the Schoolteachers: An Unlikely Coalition Committed to Liberating Genius in America

The Soldiers & the Schoolteachers: An Unlikely Coalition Committed to Liberating Genius in America | niggleburgoo | Scoop.it
Together, as an unlikely coalition of soldiers and schoolteachers, politicians and pastors, and business leaders and bankers we can lead the change we want to see--beginning right now.

 

Over the past 20 years, the Internet and technology have changed the world, and the workplace, dramatically. Unfortunately, most students today receive an education substantially similar to what their parents received in the 1970s and 1980s, even as the demands of the job market today are dramatically different than what their parents encountered, and continue to morph every day.

 

Instead of encouraging critical and creative thinking in our children, many of our schools demand that students memorize predetermined answers, or study predetermined methods to deliver the predetermined solution.

 

Instead of creating opportunities to spur kids to "color outside the lines" or "think outside the box," we reward them for turning off their imaginations and toeing the line, or staying in line. No questions asked.

This article explains how people come up with the statistics that they can for each player. Using spatial thinking anaylsts can figure out where a player is best on the field. Where players "sweet spots" are on the field or where a player is most effective when playing. It is crazy how people even thought of this.

Content Curation your secret weapon - Drive Traffic & Find New Customers

Content Curation your secret weapon - Drive Traffic & Find New Customers | niggleburgoo | Scoop.it
Using Content Curation To Find New Customers.

 

Being an Internet marketer for many years I’ve seen the landscape change many times but one thing has stayed the same “Content is King”, when it comes to driving traffic to a website.

 

As a business owner we all want to get new customers to our websites. Many have tried blogging to drive traffic to their website and due to a shortage of hours in a day they end up dropping the blog or hiring ghost writers to develop content for the site. We now have a new player on the net and it comes in the form of Content Curation. No it will not completely eliminate business owners creating content for their website but adds a whole new area of content development for a website.

 

Over the past two years I’ve tested different content curation sites and tools and have found Scoop.it to be the leader in both innovation and traffic building potential.

 

Below are examples on how Scoop.it can drive traffic and help to show the world, yes the world that your business knows your market.

 

In this article are 3 areas that when done correctly can drive new traffic to your business or brand.

 

*** If you would like help setting up a Scoop.it traffic generator for your company. Contact Brian at 1-888-535-9139 or Email Me ideas@marketinghits.com ***

OSX Daily: How to Access & Use the Undo & Redo Buttons on iPad

OSX Daily: How to Access & Use the Undo & Redo Buttons on iPad | niggleburgoo | Scoop.it

"Much like OS X and Windows on the desktop, iOS on the iPad has an “Undo” and “Redo” option. Undo does just what it sounds like, it undoes the last text based action. For example, if you typed out a sentence but decided it wasn’t what you wanted to say, you could hit “Undo” and it would instantly disappear. Redo is also fairly self explanatory, as it redoes the prior text action that was just undone. For example, if you wanted to restore that sentence you typed out but made disappear with “Undo”, then hitting “Redo” would make it appear again."

Showing by Doing: How Elynn Fish is using Curation to Become a Resource and Help her Clients Become one Too

Showing by Doing: How Elynn Fish is using Curation to Become a Resource and Help her Clients Become one Too | niggleburgoo | Scoop.it

As any entrepreneur can tell you, building a business isn't easy. In Elynn Fish's case, it was even more difficult, beacuse she was building a business based upon a concept that not many of her clients were even familiar with-digital marketing. In fact, as we previously mentioned, Elynn was still in the process of learning about curation herself! Luckily for her, and for her clients, content curation is not only a tool for marketing, but it's also a tool for learning.

 

Most of Elynn's clients hadn't ever heard of curation before they began doing business with her. However, as she was using it throughout the process of building her business and establishing her early clients as resources in their fields, it wasn't difficult to convince her new clients that she had the answers that they wanted. By continuing her learning process as well as that of her clients, Elynn was able to demonstrate her expertise and easily prove to her business prospects they would be able to demonstrate theirs as well.

 

Now, Elynn's large client base has learned how to use curation not only for their digital marketing efforts but as a resource as well. By turning herself into a resource via curation, Elynn was able to demonstrate that this would be the case for her clients once they built their Scoop.it pages. 

 

Essentially, Elynn Fish was able to use curation to do for herself exactly what she was able to do for potential clients; building an expertise and becoming a resource.

Trends in Plant Science - New insights into the regulation of anthocyanin biosynthesis in fruits

HighlightsAnthocyanin pigments make a major contribution to fruit quality.R2R3-MYB genes control anthocyanin biosynthesis as characterized for many fruit species.Novel interactions between regulators of anthocyanin accumulation exist.Summary

Anthocyanins are important health-promoting pigments that make a major contribution to the quality of fruits. The biosynthetic pathway leading to anthocyanins is well known and the key regulatory genes controlling the pathway have been isolated in many species. Recently, a considerable amount of new information has been gathered on the developmental and environmental regulation of anthocyanin biosynthesis in fruits, specifically the impact of regulation through light. New discoveries have begun to reveal links between the developmental regulatory network and the specific regulators of anthocyanin biosynthesis during fruit ripening. In this opinion article, a simplified model for the different regulatory networks involved with anthocyanin production in fruit is proposed.

Old Company, New Internet: How Glenn Street and Mascots.com got into Social Media | niggleburgoo | Scoop.it

When Glenn started his company 25 years ago, the Internet wasn't very popular. As time went on and the Internet became increasingly available, though, he realized that it was the perfect tool for a small business like his - one with limited marketing dollars and a global clientele.

After creating his website, mascots.com, Glenn realized how much easier it was for him and his company to be found. In recent hears, Street and his team found value in social media. They began sharing content including information about their mascots as well as entertaining pictures and videos to spread the word about their success.

Glenn found Scoop.it while perusing articles on Mashable. He was drawn in by the concept and thought it could be an interesting addition to his social media efforts.

The intriguing aspect of Glenn's business is that it is entertainment-based. He finds that most of the content he finds on Scoop.it related to his field is entertaining to a very broad audience. Although it is always related to mascots and street characters, who doesn't love watching a giant animal do crazy things on the Internet?

Street used to find this content using Google Alerts and reviewing all of it before posting it to Twitter, Facebook, etc. Now, with Scoop.it, he has all of his content in one place and is able to go through it and feed it directly to his networks. He has found this is a great way to create good looking content and increase his SEO.

You Need Start Thinking Like A Media Company To Guide The Future Of Digital Business

You Need Start Thinking Like A Media Company To Guide The Future Of Digital Business | niggleburgoo | Scoop.it

In this article by Lee Odden on Online Marketing Blog, he introduces the next book by Michael Brito, SVP at Edelman, and the author of "Your Brand, The Next Media Company".
The article caught my attention since many points are relevant for my topic and for human content curators.

Here is some excerpts:
"Now more than ever, we need trusted sources of insight and leadership to guide the future of digital business.

Whether you work for a large brand, small business or just a consultant, you need start thinking like a media company. And the answer is right in plain sight:
- There is a content and media surplus in the market place and consumers have an attention deficit.
- Consumer’s lives’ are dynamic and unpredictable, making it impossible for any brand to reach them consistently.
- All consumers are influential, despite their Klout scores and are aiding their peers down the purchase funnel.

"What exactly is a media company?"
They have five characteristics that you should adopt when thinking overall about content marketing or content strategy.

1. Storytelling: Media companies tell stories...
2. Content: Media companies are content machines with an “always on” mentality...
3. Relevance: Media companies provide relevant content all the time to someone, somewhere...
4. Ubiquity: Media companies are everywhere. They dominate the search engine results and their content is shared daily across social media channels...
5. Agility: Media companies move quickly...

Brito also provides technology reviews of content platforms like Newscred, Contently, Compendium, Outbrain and real-time monitoring dashboards like Social Flow and the Dachis Group Real-time Marketing Platform that will help facilitate this transition..."

It ain’t easy to turn a book into a bestseller. Harder still is for a first-time author to reach the heights of the charts. But is bookselling success a nebulous, magical achievement “ultimately in the hands of the book gods”? That’s the way Morgan Entrekin, the president and publisher of Grove Atlantic, described it in the recent New York Times article “Long Odds For Authors Newly Published” by James B. Stewart. The first part of the quote in that article quotes Entrekin stating, “A publisher can only do so much.”
