I am updating this post because I now have my own experience of this exciting new way of connecting with my audience. Brands are communicating with consumers in whole new ways. Pinterest is still by invite only, will let you know when it goes public. Be sure to stay tuned and follow the latest trends, reviews, news and developments in social curation on my new topic "PINEREST WATCH" .
I selected this post written by Elad Gil because not only was it interesting and timely, but the comments from his readers were equally as valuable. So many different social curation platforms emerging, Pinterest is one to watch.......
Social Content Curation As The Next Big Thing
The most interesting wave hitting the social web in 2012 is social curation. This was kicked off in 2011 as Pinterest's growth was noticed by Silicon Valley and a number of companies quickly followed suit -
**Snip.It launched as a social information curation platform, Quora adopted boards for a similar purpose, and Fab.com launched a structured social commerce feed.
There's so much information in this post, here's the takeaway. I would love to hear your comments about this next wave......
2012 Will Be The Year of Curated Sets
**Just as the first wave of social media has transformed the consumption of information, this next wave of social curation will fundamentally change how users find and interact with content over time.

Transparency vs Anonymity ... Who Are You Online?
Today’s infographic shows these divergent philosophies of Internet culture and, most interestingly, what the average Internet user thinks about the privacy of their information online.

This weekend I'm focusing on information, filtering and meaning overload and useful ways to manage and utilize it. Having said that, there's so much good information, insights and tips in this post, I have to digest it slowly.
Beth Kanter has written a great post on this subject, sharing the way she's dealing with it and the 44 people who commented on it have some great things to add to the discussion.
This morning I learned a new word for information overload - content fried from a colleague at the Packard Foundation. It resonated.
I identify with this, here's what really caught my attention:
"The biggest difficulty I experience is the shifting from this forward flowing process of consuming, curating, and sense-making of content to learn versus to get something done".
****The latter requires a different type of attention and whole new set of information coping skills
Howard Rheingold calls this process managing your attention or “Infotention” and it is what he has been teaching in his courses.
I’ve been trying to curate content that offers ideas, tips, and resources to get past that ugly feeling of “content fried.” He curated the above mindmap.
Manage Your Attention, Not Just Your Time:
Don’t just create a to do list, lay it out on daily and weekly schedule, breaking down key tasks of the project to chunks.
****But consider the level of concentration and focus that each type of task or chunk requires – and schedule accordingly.
My question to you is:
What are your challenges? What ways are you drowning or prospering in this area? I'd love to hear from you.

I'm a huge fan of the current wave of enthusiasm and political will to transform the way that ICT is delivered in schools. This morning at BETT, the UK's Education Secretary Micheal Gove will outline the Government's endorsement of the...
"..the interesting part of this announcement is the iBooks Author app which, in theory at least, moves us more toward construction than consumption. I know, I know…pretty much anything we construct with it becomes a part of Apple’s domain, and that part of it contradicts, I think, the best part of writing and sharing on the Web.Again, I may not have poked around in it long enough to know, but it doesn’t look like “authoring” via the app is collaborative, social, linkable…all the good stuff that at the end of the day fuels the learning that I, at least, do here online..."

"Jon Miller of News Corp may have predicted 2012 will see the "channelisation" of the web, but he really means a renewed focus on curation..."
"Channelisation implies that media corporations such as News Corp will be the ones controlling the playlist of content, but 2012 will see the role of such organisations fall back to providing content for others to turn into a wealth of different “channels” where the barrier to entry essentially falls to zero."
Key highlights curated from the article:
Curation of niche interest: channelisation
"...opening up of video on demand services from all these channels will allow much smaller organisations to provide cross-channel curation.
If the channels who provide the content are still showing their ads before, during and after each show, then curators could start channels focusing on more specific interests and smaller niches than a broadcast channel could do – there will be channels dedicated to crime shows, medical shows, shows with appearances from certain actors, and more.
A user will just have to think of a single genre or idea that they want to watch in a show, and there will be a “channel” or that."
If a user trusts the taste of a journalist, presenter, blogger or other figure – they may be more interested to watch the content that user picks than the content programmed for any particular channel.
...These curators could add to the content by providing commentary from their own knowledge of the content – offering a place where consumers could find a new love."
They would not have to pay for licensing as the content owners will bundle ads with the in-stream content, and so people will curate out of love and interest rather than having to focus on budgetary constraints."

This piece was written by Evren Kiefer for Paper.li talking about a challenge we all face - information overload and how we streamline our diet. Or can we?
"Content doesn't have a season -- the feast is all year round" Overload or gluttony?
Here's what caught my attention:
“Information overload”, I hear you say, “we know that already”. Is it really the problem, though?
**As Clay Shirky argues in his talk “It’s Not Information Overload. It’s Filter Failure”, information overload is our new environment of plenty and not a problem that needs solving.
****It lies upon us to create internal and external filters to manage our time and attention because they are our most precious resources.
My commentary: I think this is most important for all of us, continually refining our ability to select only what we need and leave the rest. Today everyone is a publisher and everyone has an opinion. Aren't we suffering from meaning overwhelm as well?
I think it's essential to establish some criteria when you select content?
**What are you looking to add to the original piece?
**Do you want to create clarity for others?
**Do you know the subject matter well enough to do this effectively?
**Do you want it to be thought-provoking?
**Do you want to add additional links and other resources who may have different points of view?.
As far as meaning overwhelm,
Everyone has an opinion, I think it's good to have a viewpoint but I think it's important to search for the simple thread in it that relates to your core message.
It's also good to include others in the conversation because two heads are better than one, it helps people see the bigger picture and decide for themselves. That's why I'm asking you:
What are your thoughts? How are you dealing with this? I'd love to hear your comments.

At a time where some are thinking we urgently need an information diet, Brian Solis puts things in perspective: don't panic!
What he describes on PandoDaily as "the fallacy of Information Overload" is the fact that while we all seem lost at one point or another because our world is changed by the social media revolution, it's both inevitable and something mankind will adapt to.
This post is a great summary of the different ways we are affected and why we shouldn't try to move back to the previous state. But work on improving our filters.

I find myself troubled by the folks who seem to treat books as a kind of idol. It is almost always associated with a notion that books are natural and an iPad is un-natural.
What I like about this article is that the author takes the long view in articulating his position in the paper vs. digital book conversation.
I appreciate his explanation of his own love for the paper-based reading experience preceding his comments about digital reading.
Maybe it is because I'm a centrist at heart, but I really don't believe that paper vs. digital needs to be an either/or conversation.
I CAN understand the issues associated with the economics of publishing. Profits for paper-based publishers and for brick and morter distribution systems are being challenged. Technology has it's own challenges in "initial start-up costs."
Face it, both have strengths as well as drawbacks on the economic side of the ledger. And, truthfully, both have strengths as well as drawbacks on the "reading experience" side of the ledger.
I guess I'm more concerned about the rising numbers of those who could care less about reading at all.
Those who DO read, particularly those who care about the future of reading, should spend more time promoting reading than begrudging the packaging that one uses to access reading materials. It need not be a democratic decision to impose the "least objectionable" packaging upon those who prefer "the other" packaging.
