11 Ways to Stay Current in a World of Information Overload

This piece was written by Lee Oden for his blog Top Rank  - I selected this today because information overload is a challenge we're all facing. The author has some great insights and shares with us how he filters out the noise and stays abreast of things in his world.

 

Information filtering and finding meaning for others is the first step to being a great curator.

 

Here's what caught my attention:

 

**Value comes from identifying bigger picture patterns and synthesizing that information into practical business advice.

 

**"I like what Christian Adams said in a G+ thread, “When you have information overload across multiple channels you start to pick up on common threads and trending topics”.

 

**This is the essence of curation that creates value and there’s no substitute for human filtering.

 

**As a professional, it’s essential for you to filter signal from a mass of noise to grow expertise in your core discipline as well as others.

 

**The question is, where do you get the information to stay current? How do you filter out the noise?

 

The author has some excellent suggestions on how he stays on top of this challenge that we all are facing.

YouTube Changes: Everything You Need To Know | Organic SEO | Scoop.it

Aaron Biebert wrote this timely and very helpful piece on his blog 8pmWarrior about all the new changes on Youtube.

 

YouTube announced changes to channels that feature a news feed integrated with Google+, Twitter, and Facebook for videos shared on other platforms.

 

Here's an intro:

 

"I’m sharing from experience as a producer of several online shows and video productions that were created to build community and sell a product in a social savvy way".

 

Video changes the game.

 

Here’s why YouTube matters:

 

**YouTube is the #2 search engine in the world (think SEO)It is the largest video-based social network

 

**Google+ is now integrated even closer with YouTube for additional community building (more on the way)

 

**YouTube is simple to use and even offers a free video editing feature Video is perfect for the Attention Era

 

Lots of valuable "how-to" information here.

 

Aaron says:

 

"If you have any questions about the new YouTube upgrade, feel free to post the questions below, on the 8pm Warriors Facebook discussion forum, or on twitter @Biebert I'll do my best to answer or point you in the right direction".

10 Thought Leaders Share Thoughts on Content Marketing & Curation

10 Thought Leaders Share Thoughts on Content Marketing & Curation | Organic SEO | Scoop.it

Lee Odden CEO at Toprankblog interviewed 10 thought leaders on content marketing and curation over a year ago, but it is still timely and relevant today. They share their insights, questions and observations.

 

 

 

****One thing is for sure, 2012 is the year for content curation!

 

Intro:

 

Companies are realizing the value in brands as publishers and are making real commitments to the creation of content in their online marketing mix. Content curation is going to be an equally important element in their content strategy.

 

Here are just a few things that caught my attention:

 

Paul Gillin - @pgillin

Consultant, Author of "The New Influencers & Secrets of Social Media Marketing"

 

**Marketers can build trust with their constituencies by providing focused curation in areas that matter to their constituents.

 

**Original content will always have value, but curation is coming to have nearly equal value.

 

**The key is to stake out unique topic areas and to become the most trusted source in those areas.

 

**You don’t need a lot of money to do this. You just need to know the subject matter very well.

 

Erik Qualman @equalman

Author of Socialnomics:

 

**Today, everyone is a potential media outlet.

 

**A curator understands their audience and is able to package created content in a digestible manner for them.

 

**Creators need to view curators as distribution points for their content rather than as pirates.

 

**Content creators and curators that will thrive in this new world understand the importance of this symbiotic relationship. But is it symbiotic?

 

**In the end, almost every person is a little of both (creator & curator).

 

After all, there is no such thing as a new idea and imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.

 

**These clichés symbolize the irony of the topic being discussed.

@Internet Billboards
Getting ready to launch in the next couple of weeks - it's way more than a blog:-) I will be writing original articles as well as curating. Thank you for your kind words, I appreciate it.

Hi Jan, thank you for sharing this. :-)

I wanted to let you know that your last link, the bit.ly one isn't good. It has an extra square bracket at the end making it unusable.

Also: I think it would be very appropriate when curating something that is over a year old to say so explicitly as it is an extra element of immediate evaluation for the reader.

Keep it up!

Hi Robin,

Thanks for letting me know about the link, I just fixed it.

I will add your revision to the post, you're absolutely right, an oversight here:-)
