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....

What Is Your Content Curation Strategy?

What Is Your Content Curation Strategy? | Social Media Content Curation | Scoop.it
Content creation is an important marketing strategy for a business and so is content curation.

At the Techonomy conference in Lake Tahoe, CA in August 2010 Eric Schmidt said, “Every two days now we create as much information as we did from the dawn of civilization up until 2003. That’s something like five exabytes of data.”

With that perspective in mind, it makes sense that curation on the web is really important.

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.

Is Content Curation the New Community Builder? | Social Media Explorer | Social Media Content Curation | Scoop.it
Content curation has drawn my interest. I was at a tech conference last week and saw a couple of pretty cool applications for curating content. Setting a side the debate of right or wrong, these new content curation tools will make their mark.
Content curation, which involves human filtering and organizing is much different than content aggregation. Content aggregation sites use algorithms to find and link to content. Content curation is the practice of human filtering and organizing what you find interesting and useful.

Curation | MSNBC.com’s Breaking News traces info to its source

Curation | MSNBC.com’s Breaking News traces info to its source | Social Media Content Curation | Scoop.it
There are some news events whose coverage is planned far — far, far — in advance of the events themselves.

Those are exceptions, though: Most of the time, news is unscripted and unpredictable — breaking, appropriately enough, through the fabric of daily routine.

MSNBC.com is trying to provide that kind of connection through its Breaking News trifecta that aims to be a curation engine for breaking news. The idea is to collect the biggest stories of the moment, in near real-time, from hundreds of news sources worldwide — including, often, eyewitness accounts shared on social media from people at the scene of breaking-news events.

“Our goal is to empower the moment of discovery,” says Cory Bergman......

Are Content Curators the power behind social media influence? | Internet Billboards | Social Media Content Curation | Scoop.it
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....

More Thoughts On Curation And Rescuing Content From The Obscurity Of The Timeline... - SVW

More Thoughts On Curation And Rescuing Content From The Obscurity Of The Timeline... - SVW | Social Media Content Curation | Scoop.it
Last week I wrote about the tyranny of the timeline and how good content disappears once it is pushed off the home page and into the archives. [you can read it here http://t.co/WIzgqoq]

Of course, the content is still there in the archives, it is reachable, and it is searchable; but only if you know it is there.
Search is an awkward instrument for retrieving content in an archive, simply because you often don't know what is in the archive.
Search is great for finding specific items but it is terrible at surfacing great content.

Maybe one of these days we will be able to ask a search engine to find "which are the best articles about curation?" Maybe search technology at Google, with its legions of experts, will one day be able to deal with such simple queries.

*openmargin | where realities co-exists | Social Media Content Curation | Scoop.it
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.

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.
