Content Curation Is the New Community Builder

Content Curation Is the New Community Builder | Nonprofit Knowledge Sharing | Scoop.it

Great post written by Eric Brown for Social Media Explorer - This is what caught my attention:

 

Curation — the act of human editors adding their work to the machines that gather, organize and filter content.

 

“Curation comes up when search stops working,” says author and NYU Professor Clay Shirky. But it’s more than a human-powered filter.

 

“Curation comes up when people realize that it isn’t just about information seeking, it’s also about synchronizing a community.”

 

Part of the reason that human curation is so critical is simply the vast number of people who are now making and sharing media.

 

“Everyone is a media outlet”, says Shirky. “The point of everyone being a media outlet is really not at all complicated. It just means that we can all put things out in the public view.

Curation platforms vs Search engines

Curation platforms vs Search engines | Nonprofit Knowledge Sharing | Scoop.it

This is an interesting comparison  and I think it's a good start....... search and curation continue to evolve and there's lots more to this story, stay tuned...........

 

Intro:

 

Curation platforms vs Search engines Nowadays, search engines like Google are essential tools for every Internet work. But are they the best place to search anything? We believe that a manual...

 

Search engines present a list of content, ranked by a relative relevance between the results. Curation platforms like Bundlr present themed groups of content, usually ranked by popularity, but always highlighting the author of the selection.

 

Search engines work better when:

 

We’re looking for definite answers The source long term authority matters The quantity of results is important

 

Curation platforms work better when:

 

Events are recent or on-going (and traditional sources are slow to catch up) There are multiple points of view Concrete example are prefered to definitions

Curated Content Delivery Formats: Beyond News Portals and Magazines

Curated Content Delivery Formats: Beyond News Portals and Magazines | Nonprofit Knowledge Sharing | Scoop.it

Curating content and news is not just about the selection, editing and contextualization of stories about a specific topic or theme, but it is increasingly about how these information items are (collaboratively) gathered, organized, grouped, displayed and in which ways they can be accessed and browsed by those interested in them.

 

For me, one of the most fascinating aspects of this exploding content curation trend, is the speculative exploration of how "curated" content collections could best benefit from alternative and more effective delivery formats than the classic linear, top-to-bottom, chronological, river-of-news sequence.

 

Nothing wrong with this format, but it is a good format only if you want to give relevance to curated news stories in chronological order. Just like most news sources have done until today. The more recent, the higher in the list.

 

But anytime you are working to curate content according to non-chronological parameters, you are off into a largely unexplored and uncharted land.

 

At least for now.

 

As a matter of fact, there are positively more content types than the "breaking news" and the typical curated list, as much as there are a lot more ways to look at a curated set of information items beyond the habitual following of a linear vertical sequence.

 

In this article I lightly explore some of the reasons why I expect an explosion in content curated delivery formats, and then provide an extended list of both existing and new, emerging curated content delivery formats, that I expect you will start to see and use more frequently in the near future.

 

Here is what I see:

Distributing Value: Why Content Curation Is King

Distributing Value: Why Content Curation Is King | Nonprofit Knowledge Sharing | Scoop.it

When Microsoft’s Bill Gates wrote his essay containing the phrase “content is king,” a snowball of reality began rolling down this digital mountain we all reside upon.

 

It is true, content of all kinds is still king, and will always be, but the ways in which audiences consume it, this is what communicators need to understand – this is the so called “leading edge” of digital speak.

 

I know, volumes have been written about this subject, in case the reader is condescendingly chuckling. But, what about those reading this from “out there” who are not Brian Solis?

 

Who are not social media mavens and life coaches with 20 billion twitter followers? Maybe you need to know about next-gen marketing strategies? The meaty tidbit for you impatient marketing gurus here is (or should be) “Making digestible content bon-bons.”

Accessibility vs. Access: How the Rhetoric of “Rare” is Changing in the Age of Information Abundance | Nonprofit Knowledge Sharing | Scoop.it

A great annotated version of the latest original article from Maria Popova. A great read from start to end.

"We’re in the habit of associating value with scarcity, but the digital world unlinks them.

 

You can be the sole owner of a Jackson Pollock or a Blue Mauritius but not of a piece of information — not for long, anyway.

 

Nor is obscurity a virtue.

 

A hidden parchment page enters the light when it molts into a digital simulacrum. It was never the parchment that mattered."

Reaction-Based Curation Platforms: Percolate

Reaction-Based Curation Platforms: Percolate | Nonprofit Knowledge Sharing | Scoop.it

Percolate is an online platform that curates content from Twitter and RSS feeds. The sheer amount of information that passes through a typical social media user’s path in a day can be tremendously overwhelming.

 

Percolate, however, using an algorithm, will organize content according to what you’re interested in.

 

What’s so innovative about Percolate is how much emphasis is placed on reaction.

 

With buttons like “awesome,” “interesting,” and of course the Internet-friendly “win” and “fail,” Percolate lets you say what’s on your mind. Furthermore, users are able to add a tag of their own to customize the experience further.

 

Percolate is also an apt business tool in that it allows brands to not only to create content, but also identify content related to the business itself.
