Social Curation At Its Best

There is a staggering amount content being generated online at this very moment. The average number of tweets sent per day is up to 140 million. More than 35 hours worth of video is uploaded onto YouTube each minute, with over two billion videos watched per day.
While aggregators like Alltop, Bloglines, and Digg help filter the never-ending cycle of content creation and consumption, the problem is still information overload. There’s only so much time in one day. Even if you limited your focus to a single niche or topic, there is way more information out there than can ever be absorbed.
Out of this crisis has emerged a new trend-- Curation. Very simply, it is the ability to master the flow of conversation. Social curation allows people to collectively bring forth the very best, most relevant and interesting bits of information and present it in a meaningful way.

As the rising volume of information overwhelmed these human filters, hand-curation gave way to algorithmic search à la Google. But today, as consumers become their own media outlets, producing staggering amounts of user-generated content every day, and savvy marketers reverse-engineer Google’s algorithm to game the search results, separating signal from noise is once again becoming difficult.

“Search results in many categories are now honey pots embedded in ruined landscapes — traps for the unwary,” wrote investor, writer and entrepreneur Paul Kedroksy. As a result, we’re seeing a shift back towards human filtering and hand-curation. But this time around, instead of professional editors — who could never hope to sift through the quantities of content the world currently creates — it’s consumers themselves who are doing the curating.
