Coming Soon to a Job Description Near You: Content curation | IABC - CW Bulletin | Social Media Content Curation | Scoop.it
If curation isn’t yet on your radar screen, it soon will be. Why? We are constantly bombarded by an ever-growing array of information, and it’s becoming more and more difficult to make sense of it.

As New York University professor Clay Shirky has famously stated: "It's not information overload. It's filter failure.”

Stated simply, content curation is the organization and sharing of relevant content on a particular subject. In a world where high-quality information is harder to find, learning to meaningfully filter through content is an increasingly valuable skill.

Why content curation is the foundation of digital public relations

Why content curation is the foundation of digital public relations | Social Media Content Curation | Scoop.it
We all know content is king. In fact, we’re probably tired of hearing about it. But let’s face it, when it comes to your online positioning, the most effective tool is frequently published content.

For our purposes we’ll treat content as any sort of online text, graphic, video, audio file, image, logo, game, widget, etc.

And for purposes of your online positioning—your search placement—you either show up naturally (organic search) or artificially (paid search).

Scoop.it is a curation service that allows you to find the best of things that interest you and gather them all into one place.

While it’s great to be the resource, and not always the source, many of us wanted to integrate our Scoop.it topics into existing pages such as WordPress, Tumblr and LinkedIn.

Refocusing on Quality: A Review of Curation Nation by Steven Rosenbaum

Refocusing on Quality: A Review of Curation Nation by Steven Rosenbaum | Social Media Content Curation | Scoop.it
This book seemed to highlight the human role in the future of content publishing. Rosenbaum says, “Readers trust human editors, not algorithms. They reward trust with attention, engagement, and loyalty.”
These are words that have the potential to finally get brands to buy into the digitalization of media instead of fighting it.

Why curation is so important in journalism and community building

Why curation is so important in journalism and community building | Social Media Content Curation | Scoop.it
New curation tools have been popping up all over the Internet in the past six months and with them has come the traditional introspective from the media industry about what it means for journalism.

Realistically journalists and editors have always been curators, collecting information, photos, quotes and rumors and packaging it up for the reader. The difference now is the range and type of information and content (including tweets, videos, graphs) is so much larger.

XYDO Prioritizes & Organizes News Shared on Twitter & Facebook

XYDO Prioritizes & Organizes News Shared on Twitter & Facebook | Social Media Content Curation | Scoop.it
Social news site XYDO, launching publicly Tuesday, aims to prioritize and organize online news based on each user’s social graph and interests.

“What we’re trying to do with XYDO is build a social network around news,” explains co-founder Cameron Brain. “We want to take what Digg and Reddit started and bring the idea into the modern generation.”

XYDO is equal parts automation and human curation. The founders describe it as Quora meets Digg, or rather Quora meets Techmeme. “XYDO has the social structure of a Quora; but from a content perspective, it’s about delivering the best human-curated content,” says Roach.

The Era of the Content Curator | IABC - CW Bulletin

The Era of the Content Curator | IABC - CW Bulletin | Social Media Content Curation | Scoop.it
For years, we have been warned that the consequence of the “everyone-can-publish” Web model will be information overload (or as Edelman Digital's Steve Rubel calls it, "attention crash").

Search engines are less and less helpful in filtering online information. Searching for something specific can often result in thousands of irrelevant links. You can follow Google Alerts, RSS feeds and Twitter accounts devoted to a topic of interest, but your information stream will be polluted with a lot of content that doesn't interest you. And you'll spend an inordinate amount of time checking for the latest updates, something a group of University of California, San Francisco scientists recently noted "impedes short-term memory, especially among older adults."

The problem, though, isn't information overload. After all, I can stand all the information I can possibly get—about things I'm interested in.

As Curators Proliferate, Media Brands Face Loyalty Crisis - Steve Rubel

As Curators Proliferate, Media Brands Face Loyalty Crisis - Steve Rubel | Social Media Content Curation | Scoop.it
Steve Rubel is EVP/Global Strategy and Insights for Edelman - the world's largest independent public relations firm.

Summary:
- Suddenly media brands are facing increased competition from an array of upstart curators that are growing in popularity;
- There are three underlying trends that are driving their rapid rise: mobile devices, remixing technologies and, arguably, paywalls;
- Look for the media companies to stay ahead by buying these curators fast to stay more dominant on our smaller screens.

5 ways curation and content automation increases engagement

5 ways curation and content automation increases engagement | Social Media Content Curation | Scoop.it
The major challenges are how to sort and filter through all this content to make sense of it. We're also challenged with how to make the content actionable to drive consumers to your call to action while creating authentic engagement.
Enter crowdsourcing, the beauty of using your audience to determine what’s relevant is like a giant super human computer; working on your behalf, selecting and ranking what’s of value, and kicking out what’s not.
This radical approach eliminates the complexities of keyword monitoring and a large sentiment analysis problem.

Eli Pariser: Beware online "filter bubbles" | Video on TED.com

TED Talks | As web companies strive to tailor their services (including news and search results) to our personal tastes, there's a dangerous unintended consequence: We get trapped in a "filter bubble" and don't get exposed to information that could challenge or broaden our worldview. Eli Pariser argues powerfully that this will ultimately prove to be bad for us and bad for democracy.

Content, Delicious Content. | Centerline Digital | Social Media Content Curation | Scoop.it
Delicious is not so much a bookmarking tool (or even social bookmarking tool) as it is an incredible tool for content curation. And I think that content curation is going to be one of the biggest marketing trends going for at least the next several years. (And I'm not alone.)

Content curation can take many forms. Fully automated curation might be adding social mentions of your brand to your website, such as a raw Twitter feed. Other curation might be completely human powered, like a tightly vetted blog roll of like-minded thinkers. And some content curation will be a mix of both.

Curation Journalism: Useful, or too many cooks in the kitchen? | Social Media Content Curation | Scoop.it
Curation journalism is a unique idea that could become a useful and dynamic reporting trend. Instead of reporters having to be in many places at once, it allows citizens to be journalists and then takes their stories, couples them with verified facts and information, and turns them into serviceable pieces. In the marketplace of ideas, it is an effective tool.
