Content Strategy Comes of Age: Five Lessons from Confab 2011 | Sparksheet

Content Strategy Comes of Age: Five Lessons from Confab 2011 | Sparksheet | Social Media Content Curation | Scoop.it
[Steve Rosenbaum, author of "Curation Nation"]

Spafax content director Arjun Basu was the Confab conference in Minneapolis to find out why content strategy matters more than ever.

Content strategy is a relatively new name for an old line of work. But in the era of “the internet has changed everything,” a content strategist is someone tasked with making sense of the wealth of content floating about in the ether.

At Confab, the first content strategy conference, held recently in Minneapolis, content strategists from around the world gathered for a group hug and to make sense of this new field. Some gleanings..

Arnold Waldstein: Context not content is king | Curation

Arnold Waldstein: Context not content is king | Curation | Social Media Content Curation | Scoop.it
The social web has a connection conundrum.

Our own enthusiasm with the democratization of expression has created the very noise that is making it hard for ourselves to be heard clearly–or even found.

The antidote to social noise, the key to finding connections around interests lies somewhere in the interest graph and the choice of context over friendship as a filter for relevance....

The End of the Destination Web and the Revival of the Information Economy | Brian Solis

The End of the Destination Web and the Revival of the Information Economy | Brian Solis | Social Media Content Curation | Scoop.it
The future of media is evolving and its direction is far from certain. What’s clear however, is that any media organization or business will have to compete for attention in this information economy in real time and over time. This is about competing for the future by competing for the moment.
The consumer of the future is visible today as they’re always on.
The interest graphs they weave within social networks serve as qualified information networks that can amplify information with unprecedented speed, efficiency and personalization.
It creates a human algorithm that brings to life an awakening and revolutionary reality; we are now reaching an audience with an audience of audiences. They’re no longer consumers, but stakeholders in the information economy.

LYST | Fashion Curation Tool | Where To Get It: The French fashion website that wants to inspire you - TNW | Social Media Content Curation | Scoop.it
If you are looking for fashion advice, there's an app for that. Indeed, the digital revolution was clearly a shift that the fashion industry readily embraced.
The industry is interactive, emotional and driven by passionate users; being “viral” is part of its DNA.

Be it fashion blogs, curated lists, sale offers or shopping advisors, you have an incredible number of websites offering their services for something that is more important to many of us then we want to admit, men included. But in all this abundance it is clear that fashion lends itself to curation tools.

Gaining Authority in the Age of Digital Overload | Steve Rubel | Mashable

Gaining Authority in the Age of Digital Overload | Steve Rubel | Mashable | Social Media Content Curation | Scoop.it
We’re entering into a new era of the Internet, where users are now looking to find validated sources within the mix of information overload that we all experience, said Steve Rubel, EVP of Global Strategy and Insights for Edelman during his presentation at Mashable Connect 2011. This shift is changing the nature of authority.

“The reality is, there’s too much content and not enough time,” says Rubel. “More content will be created today than existed in entirety before 2003.” With limited time and attention spans, people are experiencing information overload as well as “people overload.” Rubel called it a “friending arms race,” referring to the Facebook phenomena in which “he or she who dies with the most ‘friends’ wins.” ...

Richard Nash: You Are the Future of Publishing | The Huffington Post | Social Media Content Curation | Scoop.it
Publishing is saddled with this terrible reputation for being reactionary and Luddite, our denizens known largely for caviling against technology and the new-fangled. It is perverse, truly perverse since publishing is in fact at the center of two major social revolutions that dramatically disrupted the status quo ante.

The first, printing, we all know and understand to a degree, but let me remind all concerned, pace Clay Shirky....

Filtering, Curation and Familiarity | ZDNet

Filtering, Curation and Familiarity | ZDNet | Social Media Content Curation | Scoop.it
The issue of the age is very much filtering, whether on the public internet or within work environments.

The noise level created by ‘following’ large numbers of people or topics without differentiating them into channels can quickly become overwhelming. This type of organization is time consuming and in a collaborative environment needs to have consistent logic across all participants.

Similarly, curation of information in order to stimulate enduring use of systems which are no longer shiny and new but very useful as an everyday work tool, which should be the long term goal, is an important activity to keep things findable.

The Pew Research Center‘s Project for Excellence in Journalism has released a study showing that while news sites depend a great deal on Google’s twin engines of search and news, which drives approximately 30% of these sites’ traffic, there’s another major source at work. Facebook and Twitter drive some traffic. But the surprising source of referrals comes from a single site — the Drudge Report, a 14-year-old site founded by Matt Drudge and most notorious for its coverage of the Monica Lewinsky scandal....

The curation model works on and builds up trust in content, in people and in trends.
If you want to have a successful marketing platform, brand-as-publisher platform, or influence platform for your ideas, you have to have this trust, and you have to show that you can give it back. It’s not about you. It’s about bringing people together.

What happens when you engage in this process? You demonstrate, time and time again that people will rely on you for information, because you select worthy people who can offer it, and you appraise it and pass it along to you readers.

How Conor Friedersdorf created a magazine-club experience through his “Best of Journalism” list | Nieman Journalism Lab

How Conor Friedersdorf created a magazine-club experience through his “Best of Journalism” list  | Nieman Journalism Lab | Social Media Content Curation | Scoop.it
Several years ago, when Conor Friedersdorf was working at the conservative (and soon-to-be-departed) web magazine Culture 11, he and a few friends would gather regularly at Kramerbooks near Dupont Circle in DC for what was, for lack of a better name, a magazine club.
The club may have been the genesis for Friedersdorf’s Best of Journalism list.

But beginning last year, Friedersdorf launched what you could call a spin-off of the list, the “Best of Journalism” newsletter — a weekly dose of writing from around the web, powered by Letter.ly and available at an app-esque price of $1.99 a month.

The audience is growing, Friedersdorf says. That isn’t surprising if you look at similar projects like Longreads, SportsFeat, or Longform: There’s an explosion in curated reading and, with it, the discovery and preservation of long-form work. But what sets The Best of Journalism apart is that it uses these curatorial tools and ideas in the service of creating a guided, community-oriented reading experience. Not to mention a potential business model.
