How news orgs are using RebelMouse for blizzard, Fashion Week | Social Media and Journalists | Scoop.it

“If you haven’t seen  The Wall Street Journal’s RebelMouse page for New York Fashion Week (NYFW) or their previous Davos coverage, you are missing out on some of the most rigorous and vital social beat reporting experiments in digital journalism.”

Mindy McAdams's insight:

Interesting that the article does not mention Scoop.it.

Should the mainstream media see Twitter as competition?

Should the mainstream media see Twitter as competition? | Social Media and Journalists | Scoop.it

“Twitter unveiled an interesting partnership with the NASCAR auto-racing circuit on Thursday, in which the real-time information network has created a kind of portal for the Pocono 400 race ... [A]n editor hired by Twitter will also be selecting or ‘curating’ the stream. If that sounds like the kind of thing a media company might do, it’s probably because it is the kind of thing a media company would do — the NASCAR deal takes Twitter even further into the realm of being a media entity.”

8 must-reads detail how to verify information in real-time, from social media, users

Verifying social media content “involves some new tools and techniques, and requires a basic understanding of the way networks operate and how people use them. It also requires many of the so-called old school values and techniques that have been around for a while: being skeptical, asking questions, tracking down high quality sources, exercising restraint, collaborating and communicating with team members.”

 

(Published April 27, 2012.) Craig Silverman provides an introduction to the topic and then an annoatated list of eight articles/blog posts that add clarity and examples. HT: Steve Buttry.

Curation techniques, types and tips (from Steve Buttry)

Curation techniques, types and tips (from Steve Buttry) | Social Media and Journalists | Scoop.it

The importance of linking and attribution. “Where you can’t learn much about the source of content you’re curating, consider crowdsourcing the question: Note the name and organization, tell readers what you’ve found and that you’re continuing research and ask them what they know about the source.

 

“Where the source of online content is unclear, you should be clear about what you know and where you found the material.”

 

Good advice here, and all of it important to know.

Storyful. » The Human Algorithm

"Genuine innovation requires a fundamental shift in how journalists think about their role in a changed world. To begin with, they need to get used to being ‘curators’; sorting news from the noise on the social web using smart new tools and good old fashioned reporting skills.

 

"I find it helps to think of curation as three central questions:

"* Discovery: How do we find valuable social media content?
"* Verification: How do we make sure we can trust it?
"* Delivery: How do we turn that content into stories for a changed audience?"
