10 Steps To Curate Your Social Media Content With Scoop.it for Increased Value | Social Media Pearls

10 Steps To Curate Your Social Media Content With Scoop.it for Increased Value | Social Media Pearls | SM | Scoop.it

Are you asking the following questions: “What is social media curation?” and “How does it add value?” Are you like many business owners trying to get your head around curation and the associated benefits? Well I have come to realize, you are not alone!

In an earlier post I defined curation. In this post I would like us to revisit that definition and share how value can be gained by demonstrating how to use Scoop.it.

Hi students (and visitors). If you are having trouble with your profile photo changing every time that you post a new scoop, you can fix it by following these directions that a representative from Scoop.it sent me:
Indeed there's a setting to avoid that. Tell your students that on their Curate page, click on Manage>Customizations>untick "Last Post Image" box and click on Save.

Use Social Curation To Build Brand Presence | MediaPost

Use Social Curation To Build Brand Presence | MediaPost | SM | Scoop.it

Excerpted from the article:

 

"In today’s media-saturated world, consumers are bombarded by content in multiple channels throughout the day. Technology has spawned a profusion of publishing platforms, while it has enabled any individual to become an active publisher or aggregator.

 

Increasingly, they are turning to Social Curation -- the recommendations of others in their social networks -- to identify the most relevant and valuable content.

 

While there are no tricks or shortcuts, there are best practices.

 

1) Be Honest...

2) Engage...

3) Provide Value...

4) Make things easy...

 

Engaging social curation can positively increase the reach, relevancy and credibility of your brand. But social engagement is a multichannel dialogue that requires vigilance and timely responses to user comments and questions."

 

We call the approach listed above Be a Person (http://bit.ly/OrderBeAPerson). People rely on other people to help them make buying or lifestyle decisions. Don't be a brand. Be a collection of people.

Robin Good: Amit Agarwal of Digital Inspiration has done a wonderful job in bringing together, in one page, all of the syntax queries you need to create an RSS feed for just about anything.

 

Particularly useful are the syntax queries to create "persistent searches" on Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, Pinterest, Flickr, Instagram, Picasa, Tumblr where you can easily specify a user, a tag/hastag or specific search terms.
