Google vient d'ajouter un onglet "local" à son réseau social, intégrant des recommandations localisées du service Zagat, racheté l'année dernière. Les résultats sont également présentés sur Google Search et Maps.
Over the past few years I must have heard the phrase ‘everyone is a publisher nowadays’ a thousand times or more. It’s largely accurate, due to the rise of social media, but I think we are mainly ‘curators’, as opposed to ‘publishers’.
Steve Neville writes something interesting on the Intelligent Designs Media web site. Here a few excerpts from it:
"...people and businesses have been stealing other’s intellectual property and using content curation as a way to rationalize their actions.
...shady websites, mostly “content curation websites,” pay these people to mix in tweets about their sites. You’ve seen them before, they’re hashtagged #sp, or sponsors.
...The same scam runs on Facebook, but with a different twist. Facebook “curators” use meme’s and pictures, instead of stolen jokes and quotes, to gain followers and sell sponsorship on their pages and websites.
Same game, different style.
I bring this post up because content curation is a disturbing trend that is really taking off in social media.
The curators are rising in popularity, and sites, accounts, and pages are springing up every minute and giving people the idea that content curation is the key to success in social media.
...as obvious as it seems for me to be typing this, I do so because I see way too many clever and creative people enticed by the prospect of easy work and quick popularity."
Fin mai 2012, la frénésie autour de l’IPO de Facebook était a son apogée et qui a fait passé presque inaperçu un changement majeur pour le web : l’évolution du fonctionnement de la recherche de Google (Introducing the Knowledge Graph: things, not strings).
