The Curation Economy and The Three 3C’s of Information Commerce | Brian Solis

The Curation Economy and The Three 3C’s of Information Commerce | Brian Solis | Social Media Content Curation | Scoop.it
I always appreciate when a very complex and important subject is simplified to ease understanding. Curation is no exception.
The truth is that for several years there were two kinds of people in social media, those who create content and those who consume it.

Historically, creators were among the digital elite, the so-called digerati, as only a small percentage was actively dedicated to creating. But there’s a world wide web out there and everyday people consuming social content dramatically outnumber the digerati.

Brian Solis at LeWeb about Trends in Social Media 2011-2012 [VIDEO]

At LeWeb in Paris, I caught up with the 99Faces crew to discuss trends in social media for 2011 and 2012.

- Mainstream lifestyle and culture
- The rise of curation
- Elevating the importance of transparency and engagement between businesses and customers
- Businesses dynamics and the need to open the doors between silos
- Politics and organizing the "brilliance" of the crowds

How Are Mac & PC People Different? [INFOGRAPHIC] | Social Media Content Curation | Scoop.it

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.

Vayable Is A Marketplace For Unique Travel Experiences

Vayable Is A Marketplace For Unique Travel Experiences | Social Media Content Curation | Scoop.it
Vayable is an online marketplace where people can discover, buy and sell unique travel experiences, including tours, activities and extended trips.

Like an Airbnb for travel experiences, secondary market place Vayable launches today to offer travelers the opportunity to buy experiences in exotic locales all over the world, from Rome to Rio as the well worn cliche goes.

The key difference between Vayable and that other “Airbnb for experiences” Skyara is that Vayable is targeting travelers specifically, especially those who are tired of the relative banality of activity offerings from travel sites like Orbitz and Expedia.

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.

Social Media Influence Measurement Tools: Klout vs PeerIndex

Social Media Influence Measurement Tools: Klout vs PeerIndex | Social Media Content Curation | Scoop.it
For the purposes of this test, I took the 50 accounts from the InfluencersinTravel.com list of independent travel influencers.
I then created a spreadsheet in Excel and imported the following data for all 50 people on the list:
- Klout Score
- PeerIndex Score
- Number of Tweets
- Number of Followers
- Number of people following
- Ratio of followers to following
- Number of Twitter lists

I then plotted the data for Klout and PeerIndex scores vs the various metrics and put a trendline on the data with a corresponding R^2 value. A value of 1.00 would be a perfect correlation...

Now Trending... Curation | Social Media Content Curation | Scoop.it
The explosion of information has created a need to group data in meaningful ways. Curation encourages users to form niche communities around their passions by sharing content that centers on their core specialty.

Rosenbaum says: "The new media moguls won't be makers; they'll be finders, endorsers and presenters."

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.

Tweet Topic Explorer

Tweet Topic Explorer | Social Media Content Curation | Scoop.it
One problem on a daily basis is to decide for a given Twitter account whether I want to follow it or not. I consider many factors when making the decision such as language of their tweets, frequency, whether they interact on twitter with other people I admire, or if I have some personal or geographic connection with them. But the most critical factor for me is whether they tweet about things that match my interests.

New tool to help see which topics a person tweets about most often. It also shows the other twitter users that are mentioned most frequently in their tweets. I call it the Tweet Topic Explorer. I'm using the recently described Word Cluster Diagrams to show the most frequently used words in their tweets and how they are grouped together.....

The entry field at the lower left lets you explore the tweets for any twitter user.
