The 7 Roadblocks to Content Curation | Darwin Ecosystem

The 7 Roadblocks to Content Curation | Darwin Ecosystem | Savvy Tech Topics | Scoop.it

All of us have areas of interest and expertise that we wish to continue developing. We want to know everything that is going on in relation to that topic. More importantly, we want to be sure we are not missing anything important.

 

What differentiates successful professionals is their ability to take action before competitors so as to mitigate a risk or act upon an opportunity.

 

This post explores 7 roadblocks that difficult content curation.

 

1. Shooting Stars:

The widespread adoption of real-time platforms has led to a huge increase of content publication. Identifying strategically important information has become much like spotting a shooting star.

 

2. Popularity Icebergs:

The massive utilization of popularity to deliver information is making content curation difficult for users with highly personalized information needs. The information that is not considered popular remains under the sea of information and is very hard to find.

 

3. Assumption Bubbles:

Algorithms are gaining importance to filter Web content and tackle information overload. The resulting bubbles are difficult to escape and limit the discovery of unexpected information.

 

4. Expert Gatekeepers:

Relying on experts is a good way to obtain relevant information with a reduced level of effort. However, those experts can easily become gatekeepers if they are not able to deliver information that is relevant to the dynamic interests and information needs of each user.

 

5. Circles of Trust:

It is easy to forget that critical information might come from outside those circles of trust.

 

6. Bingo Cards:

To build expertise, users are required to know everything that’s going on in relation to a specific topic. Users can feel overloaded because they decide to deal with more content than they can curate.

 

7. Distraction Mazes...

 

Conclusion:

Finding timely and relevant information on an ongoing basis about a specific subject is very challenging. Most users are finding it extremely difficult not to be distracted by information that is not relevant to their information needs.

SOURCE: Twitter Will Start To Function More Like Facebook On Feb. 1 | Savvy Tech Topics | Scoop.it

Twitter is set to roll out enhanced profile pages after Feb. 1, a source tells us, and those pages will give brands the ability to build platforms on their pages that could include iFrame environments, allowing users to play games or shop on a brand's site without actually leaving the Twitter environment.
In other words, Twitter's brand pages are going to start to function more like the way Facebook's brand pages do.

INFOGRAPHIC: uSamp Datapoint Study Finds Gender Gap over Social Media Privacy | uSamp Blog | Savvy Tech Topics | Scoop.it

"The Answer Network...Most women using social media are just as willing to reveal personal information about their relationships, jobs, brand preferences and political and religious affiliations as men — but when it comes to details like phone numbers, location, and email or physical address that might put their personal security at risk, women are significantly more wary than men.

 

These are among the findings of the “Social Media Habits and Privacy Concerns Survey,” a new nationwide study conducted by uSamp, a leader in providing targeted audiences for global consumer insights and innovative SaaS technologies for audience engagement and business intelligence."

Pinterest Works Better Than Google+

Pinterest Works Better Than Google+ | Savvy Tech Topics | Scoop.it
Let's be grown up about this. Pinterest is an app for sharing lists of scrumptious-looking stuff. It's not for girls or guys, it's for people who like looking at things.

On Pinterest, you have fine-grained control over what pins appear in your feed. In fact, for all Google's efforts to figure out how to control unwanted social stuff with Circles, I daresay they got it backwards. Pinterest is the reverse of Google+ circles, and it's better for users.
