How the bubble of Content Creation increases the value of Content Curation

How the bubble of Content Creation increases the value of Content Curation | Readin', 'Ritin', and (Publishing) 'Rithmetic | Scoop.it

"My 2013 prediction warned of the continued fall in the value of online content which would lead to the production of ever more content as media companies tried to maintain ad revenues.

You can think of it as a towering tsunami of content, or as a massive bubble of content inflation.

Just as inflation devalues currencies, content inflation is devaluing content."


Via Guillaume Decugis
Deanna Dahlsad's insight:

I don't subscribe to the Chicken Little notion of content devaluation; I see increased content production (something that has been happening ever since there was a self-publishing Internet) as a way for creme to rise to the top. But it's interesting reading, nevertheless.

I think I do but I'm not sure of the connexion you make with content inflation/dilution?
Tagmotion's comment, March 3, 2013 10:59 PM
If we look at content inflation through the lens of making money, it's clear that in terms of monetization through advertising, the internet is the first medium in history where ad inventory grows exponentially every year. Broadcasters are only making real money from iconic TV programs that attract big audiences on the web, for which advertisers will pay a premium to reach. Curating iconic programs - so that relevant segments show up as search results - turns content inflation on its head. Now you have content that's tagged, curated & discoverable at a granular level. And that specificity translates to more highly-targeted advertising which, of course, commands a premium.
