Are Content Curators The Power Behind Social Media Influence?

Are Content Curators The Power Behind Social Media Influence? | SM | Scoop.it

"ExactTarget’s research shows that only 7% of online users are megaphones. It’s unclear where exactly these Curators are drawn from in the traditional triangle, but according to ExactTarget, 65% percent of them are creators. I expect the remainder span some part of the commenters."

 

It's true. There's conventional wisdom that on the Web 90% only consume content, 9% primarily comment, and 1% are content creators. So where do the new class of content curators (like yours truly) belong?

21 Warning Signs You’re Becoming a Social Media Snob

21 Warning Signs You’re Becoming a Social Media Snob | SM | Scoop.it

Ever think you might be starting to take social media a little too seriously?


Sure, it started out innocently enough.

 

You were hanging out with family and friends, cracking jokes, sharing cool ideas, and having some good old-fashioned fun on Farmville. You know, pretty much like everyone else online.

 

Without even realizing it though, your perspective began to shift.
