From Content Curation to People Curation

From Content Curation to People Curation | Nonprofit Knowledge Sharing | Scoop.it

Tony Karrer wrote this post on September 7, 2011 - I find it extremely relevant and am interested in looking at the possibility of curators collaborating on content around a specific topic and how that might evolve in the future.

 

I had the priviledge of listening to Clay Shirky today talk about harvesting collective wisdom and the implications of that. There are no accidents as this piece seems to be exploring an aspect of this subject.

 

Tony is reacting to a blog post he read, Ville Kilkku titled: Klout, Triberr, paper.li, and the future of content curation. He has some very good observations, too many to list but I've highlighted a few things to set the tone for the article.

 

Three Major Trends in Curation

 

**From individual content curators to crowdsourced content curation: Individuals cannot keep up with the pace of new content, even though they have better discovery tools than before.

 

**Crowdsourcing can, although it is not suitable for promoting radical new ideas: the dictatorship of the masses is unavoidably conservative.

 

**From manual to semi-automated content curation: Individual content curators are forced to automate as much of the process as possible in order to stay relevant.

 

**From content curation to people curation: When there is too much content, you vet the content creators, manually or automatically. Those who pass get exposure for all of their content.

 

****How do these trends interact? This is particularly interesting to me and it will be fascinating to watch this evolve.

 

****Social networking of the content creator is vitally important in order to create an audience as isolated content becomes increasingly difficult to discover and

 

****curation focuses on people instead of individual content.

 

**Build it, and they will come, is dead.

From Content Curation to People Curation

From Content Curation to People Curation | Nonprofit Knowledge Sharing | Scoop.it

This post was written by Tony Karrer from Aggregage

 

He has some interesting things to say about an article he read by Ville Kilkku, which was all about the future of content curation, the title of the piece he's referring to in this post is "Klout, Triberr, paper.li, and the future of content curation".

 

Intro

 

He says,


"Reading this article made me realize that people curation should be a lot of what we are really talking about here. But before I get to that, let me step through what he talks about. He takes us through a few different models of content curation. I’m going to need to compare these to my post on Marketing via Aggregation, Filtering and Curation – Tools and Resources to see if this classification changes things."

 

He then talks about three major trends in content curation:

 

From individual content curators to crowdsourced content curation: Individuals cannot keep up with the pace of new content, even though they have better discovery tools than before. Crowdsourcing can, although it is not suitable for promoting radical new ideas: the dictatorship of the masses is unavoidably conservative.

 

From manual to semi-automated content curation: Individual content curators are forced to automate as much of the process as possible in order to stay relevant. From content curation to people curation: When there is too much content, you vet the content creators, manually or automatically. Those who pass get exposure for all of their content.

 

What caught my attention:

 

How do these trends interact? Social networking of the content creator is vitally important in order to create an audience as isolated content becomes increasingly difficult to discover and curation focuses on people instead of individual content. Build it, and they will come, is dead.

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.

Content Curation:Tips, Tactics, Tools & Techniques You Need To Know

Content Curation:Tips, Tactics, Tools & Techniques You Need To Know | Nonprofit Knowledge Sharing | Scoop.it

For this month's Net2 Think Tank, we asked you to share your tips, resources, and ideas about curating content at your organization or enterprise. Below, read the curated list of the community responses we received - and share your own tips in the comments!

 

Topic: What are your best practices for curating content? Share your tips, tactics, tools, and techniques for effectively curating to serve your audience. And, if you've written about curation in the past, share the link with us!

 

Here's a quick working definition to get us started: Content curation focuses on using the web to highlight important information in situations where information overload may be a problem. Many organizations today are writing on the web regularly to communicate with their audience. At the same time, information pollution is an increasing problem for the consumers of that content. As Will Coley explains, "when organizations offer clarity amidst the noise, they build trust among supporters"

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
