How to make content curation work for your brand

How to make content curation work for your brand | Social Media Content Curation | Scoop.it
Content creation is the “organizing and sharing the most relevant content on a finite subject” – in other words, it requires a recognition that people outside your own organization have relevant things to say and that adding this insight to your own commentary makes you a better resource within the communities you operate in.

When you establish yourself as a resource, you generate more trust, encouraging people to recommend you more comfortably.

The simple process of content curation is as follows:

1. FIND content relevant to your niche i.e. video, article, blog post, photo etc
2. SHARE it with your community via your owned channels i.e. Facebook status update and link or a tweet and link
3. ANALYSE whether that content was well-received and shape your next ‘share’ on that insight

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.

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.

Human-Curated Search Engine Blekko Adds Facebook Comments To Its Search Results

Human-Curated Search Engine Blekko Adds Facebook Comments To Its Search Results | Social Media Content Curation | Scoop.it
Ever since its launch in November 2010, Blekko has been on a mission to eliminate spam and content farms from search results.
The human-curated search engine, which is also known both for using actual mammals to edit search results and for its employ of slashtags for easy categorization, announced in March that it had banned over 1 million spammy domain names from its site. Using a new algorithm it calls “AdSpam”, Blekko investigates the quality of a doman’s content, as well as the type of ads it includes, to identify those of the lowest quality. Those that don’t pass muster get the boot — which should be music to any searcher’s ears.

Curation: curator & curateur

Curation: curator & curateur | Social Media Content Curation | Scoop.it
Curation, curator et curateur sont les buzzword de ce début d'année. Est ce justifié ?

J’ai l’impression qu’après le web 2, le community management, etc., nous voici devant les termes qui mettent une dénomination sur les « bloggueurs influents » et autres influenceurs.

On constate que pour l’ensemble de ces termes « marketing » désignent des évolutions soit d’internet, soit de métiers existants… Aussi, faut-il suivre cette mode. Hier, nous étions tous community managers, demain, nous serons tous curateurs !

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.

But What About the Content? Curation, Aggregation, and Creation | Social Media Content Curation | Scoop.it
Perhaps the biggest pain point for many organizations isn’t getting their video online, but rather getting their video created in the first place. Whether you need to create your own content, have your customers or employees create it for you, or collect it from other sources, there are ways to get high-quality video content on your site without breaking the bank.

At the Online Video Platform Summit, this session, "But What About the Content? Curation, Aggregation, and Creation", examines the growing field of video curation and aggregation services, as well as offer pointers for getting your own content made quickly and inexpensively.

According to panelist Steve Rosenbaum, an evangelist on the power of curation who recently released his new book, "Curation Nation: How to Win in a World Where Consumers are Creators", we are drowning in data and curation is the only way to remain competitive in the future. Rosenbaum says that information overload has led to publishers to shift from being an authority, to curating a conversation.
