JudyGressel's curator insight, January 2, 2013 7:51 PM

Good basic info for anyone not familiar with the concept of curation.

IdeaEncore's curator insight, January 8, 2013 3:49 PM

Scott: Very helpful to see the subtlty of variations on curation

 

Robin:This is an oustandingly good video about "curation". After nine months from its first appearance, it undoubtedly deserves a second pass on my newsradar here, as I think this is a clip that, in less than three minutes, can do a good job to explain what curation really is to anyone not familiar with it. 

 

I find this video clip such a marvellous piece of inspiring content that I have decided to post it again, giving the opportunity to you - if you haven't seen it yet - to look at curation with eyes distant light-years from those of the content marketer looking for easy shortcuts to produce more content in less time, - and if you have seen it already - to look at it again and to pause and think about how you are going to take up and make yours some of the inspiring ideas shared in this clip.

 

Asking yourself more questions about how you curate and for what final purpose you do it, can only be a healthy exercise in refining this much in-demand skill.

 

 

To be watched by anyone interested in curation. 8/10

Facebook to take the # from Twitter in a plan to sell more ads

Facebook to take the # from Twitter in a plan to sell more ads | Social Media and Emerging Technology | Scoop.it
Facebook will reportedly begin supporting hashtags in user posts, providing a new vector for advertising and search.
OMP Digital's insight:

Facebook is surely interested in the additional vector they provide for advertisers. On Twitter, advertisers can pay to promote their own hashtags alongside Twitter’s list of most common hashtags showing tending hashtags throughout the world. The aggregation pages showing posts associated with a hashtag is another natural point for advertising allowing the Facebook advertisers to potentially “promote” user posts that contain particular hashtags just as they now promote “likes” of their business pages.

Google fined for intercepting private health data

Google fined for intercepting private health data | Social Media and Emerging Technology | Scoop.it
Google has agreed to pay a $7 million fine as part of a multistate settlement acknowledging that the company violated individuals' privacy by collecting electronic medical data and other information during its Street View mapping project.
OMP Digital's insight:

38 states within America have settled a case with Google, costing the giant $7 million, due to electronic medical data being collected violating privacy. 

 

Collecting information between 2008 and March 2010 data was being transmitted as Google drove around for tehir 'Street View' service also collecting personal information from millions of unencrypted wireless networks ((Streitfeld, New York Times, 3/12). 


Some of the data collected were:

 

Emails;

Electronic health records; and

Financial records.

 

Google have so far denied all claims, but have issued educational advertisements in the largest newspapers in those 38 states (New York Times, 3/12) whilst promoting video on their YouTube channel to show the public how to encrypt their wireless networks.

 

We feel this won't be the last we hear of this.
