Best Thinkers Series: Is Curation the New Journalism?

If you're serious about content curation or just want to know more about it, you shouldn't miss this.......


An exclusive, live webinar from Social Media Today


October 4th at 12pm EST / 9am PST


Where journalists used to be the trusted agents for reporting on the ground and fact-checking stories before publication, every Web user is now a potential journalist.


And as the deluge of user-generated information gathers strength, finding out what's important to people in their private and working lives becomes more and more challenging. How to sort between truth, half truth and falsehood?


Technical filtering can't (yet) match human capacity to discriminate between useful content and garbage. This is the increasingly vital role of the online curator. The discussion will examine to what extent curation is becoming integral to journalism, and whether bloggers and tweeters can adequately play the the reporting role of journalists.


We'll cover the following questions, as well as your own:


What's the difference between curation and journalism? How does factchecking work in the blogosphere? What are emerging best practices for online curators?


Can the hive mind of the Internet match the formal editorial structure of a traditional news organization when it comes to producing accurate reporting and analysis of current events?


Maggie Fox will host the webinar, her wonderful guests are Steve Rosenbaum and Tom Foremeski. (Bios on the article)

3 Proven Facts To Get More Retweets

3 Proven Facts To Get More Retweets | Organic SEO |
How to increase your Retweets and clickthroughts by 200% by tweeting at the right times, tweeting with frequency and promoting others first.


The idea, which I have expressed earlier definitely hasn’t changed. Recently we did some research, focusing on what impact scheduling Tweets with Buffer can have for you. Here are the results in numbers:


“People that start to Buffer their Tweets increased clicks on links they posted by 200% within 2 weeks of using. The amount of retweets doubles on average. Finally Buffer users increase their follower count by 104 followers within 3 weeks on average.”


Obviously, the far more interesting question here is: Why are these figures happening?


I had a go at the results and looked at the causes of these increased clicks, retweets and followers. The results are very much in line with the suggestions of last time’s post:

A Visual History Of Twitter [Infographic

A Visual History Of Twitter [Infographic | Organic SEO |
Twitter has certainly come a long way since that day in 2006 when it opened for the public to sign up.




As of lately, it seems Twitter has gotten their act together, and they are actually doing quite well. That is, apart from the whole direct message thing not working properly and missing tweets.


I wonder how much they are working on that, and when it’s actually going to be solved. It would be interesting to know if they have even located the problem yet. This article isn’t about all the bugged code that obviously will be fixed in the near future (hopefully). It’s about the history of the brand as a whole.


The social media news site Mashable recently put together an infographic outlining the most significant milestones and records that portray the growth and importance that Twitter has been able to achieve.


What was considered a lot of tweets two years ago is quite ordinary today. For example, when Michael Jackson died, at the peak, there were 456 tweets sent every second.


When Beyonce announced she was pregnant, there were 8,868 tweets sent every second. That’s saying quite a lot about how much Twitter has grown since back in 2009 alone. It’s impressive and inspiring to say the least!
