Content Curation: A Position of Need for Influence | Appinions

Content Curation: A Position of Need for Influence | Appinions | Social Media Content Curation | Scoop.it
Content is king in social media, and usually a key component of digital influence. A content curator is someone who consistently delivers content (either found or written themselves or their organization) to their vested social networks. All brands need to find and disseminate relevant content that is of interest to their fans and followers.

Content curation usually leads to increased or more sustained engagement, and there is also a steady stream of compelling content that reflects you and/or your brand. A curator is not just a filter, but really more of a searcher who will let allow their audience to filter and decide the quality of the information that is passed on....

Twitter Uses Sulia For Curation | Peter Kafka

Twitter Uses Sulia For Curation | Peter Kafka | Social Media Content Curation | Scoop.it
"Curation is one of the top five business opportunities for developers on the Twitter Platform, and Sulia is a great example of the innovation we’re seeing in this emerging space." says Ryan Sarver, Twitter platform head.

There's a lot of great stuff on Twitter. And there's a lot more lousy stuff. Twitter thinks curation is really important, but isn't doing it itself--yet. So it's asking outsiders for help.

Sulia’s pitch is that while Twitter is a free-for-all where anyone can say anything about anything, most people still want to pay attention to a handful of experts. The service says it can find those experts on thousands of topics, using a combination of algorithms and humans, and it assembles them into curated lists.

Find a good filter, or else.

The great thing about the title of Clay Shirky’s new book -- "Here Comes Everybody" -- is that it can sound totally different, depending on who’s reading it.

The world was formerly broken up into passive consumers and powerful distributors, but now it’s being blown apart by the web.

Future of Film | Filmmaking, Festivals, And Filtering The Flood

Future of Film | Filmmaking, Festivals, And Filtering The Flood | Social Media Content Curation | Scoop.it
The future of film can be found in curation - a new way to mix a professional point of view with the wisdom of your friends, neighbors and trusted sources.

What is Curation? Why does it matter?

Because content creation is going to continue to grow exponentially - film audiences are going to need to find new ways to filter the deluge of new content, and new ways to find and filter have the potential to create new audiences and new economics.

Are Content Curators the power behind social media influence?

Are Content Curators the power behind social media influence? | Social Media Content Curation | Scoop.it
Are you overlooking some of the most powerful influencers on the social web?  Let’s find out.

Traditionally, there has been a 1-9-90 rule when it come to creating and consuming content:

There’s a new element in this equation, though: Content Curators — people who make a practice of finding content relevant to their friends and followers, and then sharing links to that content. I am making a distinction between a curator and an aggregator who pulls content from around the web, usually related to a specific topic, to display on websites generally to enhance search engine optimization.

The Curators are the greatest consumers of content AND the greatest contributors—including sharing.

That makes Curators a hub and the easiest users for marketers to reach.

Curators, like me, are actively looking for information to share with others, and actively spreading the word. Content Curators are the best online friend a marketer could have!

This means there are significant changes ahead in the social media information ecosystems....

Connect thoughtfully

When you read a book, the words can inspire new, original thoughts in your mind. These thoughts are never heard, because they have no place to go.
But from now on, the blank space around the text is public domain. When your write thoughts in this openmargin, they become real traces in the book, left for other readers to find.

Together with these like-minds, you can start a dialogue. Exchange ideas, challenge the status quo and maybe start a small revolution.
The margin has always been the place where change started from. So start reading and speak up.

OCC = Q + H

The current dominant model for content curation is: “Organising and sharing the most relevant content on a finite subject.”

Why Content Curation Is Here to Stay

Why Content Curation Is Here to Stay | Social Media Content Curation | Scoop.it
The debate over the rules of content creation and curation continues to rage. We spoke to some experts for their opinion on the issues surrounding copyright and monetization.

Content aggregation (the automated gathering of links) can be seen on sites like Google News. Overall, this type of aggregation has been seen as a positive thing for content creators and publishers, and up until very recently, it was left to technology. Content creation, meanwhile, was a human effort.

But all that changes with curation — the act of human editors adding their work to the machines that gather, organize and filter content.

The obligatory and the original: 3 things I learned from our week as Romenesko | Poynter

The obligatory and the original: 3 things I learned from our week as Romenesko | Poynter | Social Media Content Curation | Scoop.it
In the eight-plus years I’ve worked with Jim Romenesko, I’ve spent some time talking with him, more time emailing with him, and — most of all — I’ve admired and observed how he does what he does. But last week, for the first time, I experienced it firsthand when Jim took some well-deserved and unprecedented time off.

In the process I learned three things about content curation:
- The balance between the obligatory and the original is critical.
- What you exclude is as important as what you include.
- Speed kills, but slowness is a painful death of its own.

Curation: Orbital Content

Curation: Orbital Content | Social Media Content Curation | Scoop.it
Most online content today is stuck. It has roots firmly planted in one of the many sites and applications around the web. Because content is rooted, we are forced to spend precious time recording its location in the hopes of navigating back. We bookmark websites. We favorite tweets. We create lists in text files.

In this system, the sites are the gravitational center and we, the users, orbit them, reaching out for a connection whenever we want to interact with the content. This is a fine system, but as users spend more time on consumption-oriented devices like iPads and mobile phones, new demands are being put on content.

But What About the Content? Curation, Aggregation, and Creation | Social Media Content Curation | Scoop.it
Perhaps the biggest pain point for many organizations isn’t getting their video online, but rather getting their video created in the first place. Whether you need to create your own content, have your customers or employees create it for you, or collect it from other sources, there are ways to get high-quality video content on your site without breaking the bank.

At the Online Video Platform Summit, this session, "But What About the Content? Curation, Aggregation, and Creation", examines the growing field of video curation and aggregation services, as well as offer pointers for getting your own content made quickly and inexpensively.

According to panelist Steve Rosenbaum, an evangelist on the power of curation who recently released his new book, "Curation Nation: How to Win in a World Where Consumers are Creators", we are drowning in data and curation is the only way to remain competitive in the future. Rosenbaum says that information overload has led to publishers to shift from being an authority, to curating a conversation.
