Should the mainstream media see Twitter as competition?

Should the mainstream media see Twitter as competition? | Online Journalism & Journalism in Digital Age | Scoop.it

“Twitter unveiled an interesting partnership with the NASCAR auto-racing circuit on Thursday, in which the real-time information network has created a kind of portal for the Pocono 400 race ... [A]n editor hired by Twitter will also be selecting or ‘curating’ the stream. If that sounds like the kind of thing a media company might do, it’s probably because it is the kind of thing a media company would do — the NASCAR deal takes Twitter even further into the realm of being a media entity.”

Before news aggregators, content curators, and Google’s omnipotent algorithm, the world’s information was sorted by real human beings. In the web’s next phase, argues The IdeaLists’ Karyn Campbell, the old-fashioned editor is poised for a comeback.

No More Media Gatekeepers: Curators Are All We Need

No More Media Gatekeepers: Curators Are All We Need | Online Journalism & Journalism in Digital Age | Scoop.it

Giuseppe Mauriello: This is my “scoop” article for today. I found this article written by Suw Charman-Anderson in November of 2006 from her first professional blog “Strange Attractor”,  now permanently moved to charman-anderson.com.

 

Suw is journalist, social technologist consultant and writer, one of the UK’s social media pioneers. 

Returning to her article... the author describes the scenario of the digital industry at the time (2006), then she raises some interesting  points about the need of content curation and the importance of the curator role. Here are some gems excerpted from it:

“We already have more movies available than any one person can watch; more videos on YouTube; more blogs… more everything. It’s not like we’re starting from a point of scarcity here. And the flood of stuff is going to turn into a rampaging torrent as more people get online and more people get excited by their ability to participate and create.

In the past, the media acted as gatekeepers.

 

They were the ones that went to the movie previews…
They were the ones who got the advance copy of the game…
They were the arbiters of taste, the people in the know, the ones with the connections needed to get at culture before us plebs got at it.

But we don’t need gatekeepers anymore. We don’t need people who stand between us and our stuff, deciding what to tell us about and what to ignore. We don’t need arbiters of taste.

We do, however, still need help. There’s just too much stuff around for us to know what’s out there, to keep up with what’s good, what works for us, what is worth investigation. What we need are curators.

We need people who can gather together the things that are of interest to us, things that fit with our tastes or challenge us in interesting ways, things that enrich our lives and help us enjoy our time rather than waste it on searching.

Curators already exist. Some are people: Bloggers who sift through tonnes of stuff in order to highlight what they like, and who, if you have the same taste as them, can be invaluable to discovering new things to like.


But curation of the web has barely started. Much of what you could call curation that exists today is flawed: too many noisy opinions and not enough capacity to understand what I as an individual want…”

 

I loved this article and title that the author chose for it.

The Future of Journalism - More Localized - Citizens Help Curate & Create News

The Future of Journalism - More Localized - Citizens Help Curate & Create News | Online Journalism & Journalism in Digital Age | Scoop.it

This article is written by Ross Dawson, for The Future of Journalism Blog. Ross is one of my favorite people - His blog is Trends in The Living Networks - he's a media futurist and one of the best!

 

Here are some highlights:

 

****Novelty, in uncovering newsworthy stories, remains as critical as ever, reinforcing the importance of traditional journalism. Investigative reporting will retain a central role in society.

 

****Increasingly this will involve data analysis, and often harnessing information and insights provided by many citizens.

 

****Reputation becomes even more important in a world of unfettered information production.

 

****We will have context-specific measures for the reputation of both publications and individual journalists,

 

****enabling their audience to decide whether to place credence in their views.

 

****Relevance relates news to individuals or small groups of readers, often through personalisation and localisation.'

 

****Journalists will provide value through a deep understanding of focused groups, the issues they face and the decisions they need to make.

 

****Community will shift to the centre of media revenue models, meaning that journalists will need to understand and engage well with communities of news consumers, often enlisting their assistance to curate as well as contribute to news reporting.

 

****Those journalists and publishers who recognise where value resides in the emerging landscape of news will prosper themselves, and create many-faceted wealth for us all.
