17 Tips To Help You Become Better At Content Curation

17 Tips To Help You Become Better At Content Curation | SM | Scoop.it

Excerpted from article: 

"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’.

 

Content curation is something that many of us will be familiar with, even if we don’t think of ourselves as curators. We instinctively find and share interesting content with our personal and professional networks. We follow others who share the kind of links that engage and entertain.

 

Here are my 17 tips to help you become even better at content curation, with one eye on Twitter:

 

1) Set up some feeds

2) Make the most of email alerts

3) Get to grips with Twitter Search

4) Use advanced search queries

5) Follow the 70/30 rule

6) Find the right tools for the job

7) Own a niche

8) Read, read, read!

9) Write, write, write!

10) Timing is crucial

11) Aggregate the good stuff

12) Tune in to the right people

13) Mix up your tweets

14) Don't be afraid of the detail

15) Consider repeating yourself

16) Try to avoid the obvious

17) Use a notebook

 

Each tips is analyzed with some details. Read full article here: http://j.mp/K8AVt4

Music, Film, TV: How social media changed the entertainment experience - Brian Solis

Music, Film, TV: How social media changed the entertainment experience - Brian Solis | SM | Scoop.it

Today everybody should know that social media are much more than a mode effect. This excellent post will convince you, if you aren't yet. [note mg]

 

Social media is more than a digital water cooler for TV and movies. The global conversation that takes place around events and the experiences people share based on what they watch teaches us about consumer preferences. More importantly, their activity influences behavior. Behavior counts for everything. Studying it is just the beginning of course. In order to understand and eventually steer behavior, we must translate activity into insights and in turn, translate insights into actionable strategies and programs.


The Hollywood Reporter recently published an exclusive poll about social media led by market research firm Penn Schoen Berland. As the report opens, THR notes, “There’s a sea change afoot in how Americans discover and consume entertainment.”

 

According to the study, 88% of respondents view social networking sites like Twitter and Facebook as a new form of entertainment.

Image Discovery Tools: The New Real-Time Photo Search Engines

Image Discovery Tools: The New Real-Time Photo Search Engines | SM | Scoop.it

Robin Good: As the gathering and discovery of news and stories leverages increasingly the adoption of technology tools that scan, search, find and monitor specific topics or geolocations in real-time, it seems only natural that a new breed of real-time photo/image search engines are beginning to appear.

 

From the article intro: "Thanks to services like Twitter and Instagram, and the global 'smartphone saturation' phenomenon, live reporting from big events has never been easier.

 

No longer do we have to rely on professionals delivering content and images from these events, we have our extended social networks doing this for us.


And, because so many of these updates get fired into the 'public' timeline, virtually any update from anywhere can be found and shared in a matter of seconds.

 

...

 

With the London Olympics on our doorstep, expect to see 'real-time photo curation' explode into popularity and we've got some tools to help you be at the forefront of this revolution."

 

Useful. Resorceful. 8/10

9 Qualities of Remarkable Entrepreneurs

9 Qualities of Remarkable Entrepreneurs | SM | Scoop.it
What separates the best from everyone else?

 

Remarkable entrepreneurs do more than make money. They are the few who possess qualities that don't appear on balance sheets but do make a significant impact on the lives of their employees, industries, and communities.

 

Here are nine qualities of remarkable entrepreneurs:

 

#1. They find happiness in the success of others

#2. They relentlessly seek new experiences

#3. They don't think work/life balance; they just think life

#4. They're incredibly empathetic

#5. They have something to prove - to themselves

#6. They ignore the 40-hour workweek hype

#7. They see money as a responsibility, not a reward

#8. They don't think they're remarkable

#9. They know that success is fleeting, but dignity and respect last forever
