Pro’s And Con’s And 6 Principles About Content Curation

Pro’s And Con’s And 6 Principles About Content Curation | Social Media Content Curation | Scoop.it

Curation can be done well, and it can be done poorly. Generally, when it’s done well, someone with a unique slant on a topic selects content of particular value and spends time putting that content in perspective. It feels insightful, and valuable.

 

At its most basic, it’s when you find a hidden gem of interesting content on a specific topic for a certain person, and you send it to them, with a note.

 

Ryan Skinner gives his six key recommendations:

 

1) As narrow as possible:

If you’re one guy with one hour a week, you can’t curate a good newsletter about cloud technology. The less resources you have at your disposal, the narrower should be your topic, your focus and your audience.

 

2) More than a link:

This is the era of frictionless sharing, goddammit. Friction is a demonstration of care. Anyone can send a link. If you’re going to curate and share, add something. Some insight. Commentary. But no more than necessary.

 

3) Slap asses:

If you’re going to curate someone’s content, you owe it to yourself and to them to be open about it. Preferably, it’s someone you follow and share comments with. And be sure to give them credit.

 

4) Give away the reins:

To whatever extent possible, allow the people you’re curating for, to influence contents in the future. The likes of Reddit have made this idea their raison d’etre. There’s a reason for that.

 

5) Keep it 50/50:

For every time you curate one story, you should create and publish another. That means your email newsletter would be 50% own content and 50% others’ content.

 

6) If you doubt, don’t:

We’re all overloaded with content. If you have even a moment’s doubt about sharing a piece of content, don’t do it. Better to wait for the right one than more or less spam someone.

Curation Coming To Television and Film: Channelisation

Curation Coming To Television and Film: Channelisation | Social Media Content Curation | Scoop.it

"Jon Miller of News Corp may have predicted 2012 will see the "channelisation" of the web, but he really means a renewed focus on curation..."

 

"Channelisation implies that media corporations such as News Corp will be the ones controlling the playlist of content, but 2012 will see the role of such organisations fall back to providing content for others to turn into a wealth of different “channels” where the barrier to entry essentially falls to zero."

 

Key highlights curated from the article:

 

Curation of niche interest: channelisation

"...opening up of video on demand services from all these channels will allow much smaller organisations to provide cross-channel curation.

 

If the channels who provide the content are still showing their ads before, during and after each show, then curators could start channels focusing on more specific interests and smaller niches than a broadcast channel could do – there will be channels dedicated to crime shows, medical shows, shows with appearances from certain actors, and more.

 

A user will just have to think of a single genre or idea that they want to watch in a show, and there will be a “channel” or that."

 

The curator
"More interesting than the drive to smaller and smaller niches, which could, at least in part, be algorithmically generated – will be the focus on the curator.

 

If a user trusts the taste of a journalist, presenter, blogger or other figure – they may be more interested to watch the content that user picks than the content programmed for any particular channel.

 

...These curators could add to the content by providing commentary from their own knowledge of the content – offering a place where consumers could find a new love."

 

 

Social Curation
"...Equally, groups of curators could join together to offer more regular programming than the one-off playlists of individuals, basically creating “channels” without any of the budget and monetary constraints of a real channel.

 

They would not have to pay for licensing as the content owners will bundle ads with the in-stream content, and so people will curate out of love and interest rather than having to focus on budgetary constraints."

This is great news! I feel like it's Christmas all over again - think of all the possibilities, especiaily the Social Curation where groups of curators get together to offer regular programming. This is my favorite part "so people will curate out of love and interest rather than having to focus on budgetary constraints." My head is spinning, so many ideas flooding my brain, I need to curate my thoughts:-)

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....

The future of film can be found in curation - a new way to mix a professional point of view with the wisdom of your friends, neighbors and trusted sources.

What is Curation? Why does it matter?

Because content creation is going to continue to grow exponentially - film audiences are going to need to find new ways to filter the deluge of new content, and new ways to find and filter have the potential to create new audiences and new economics.

Digital Content Curation: Good Advice On How To Become A Content Curator

Digital Content Curation: Good Advice On How To Become A Content Curator | Social Media Content Curation | Scoop.it

Robin Good: If you are a librarian, an information scientist or someone who has been trained to sift through lots of information and to extract valuable insight, you will enjoy reading this article by John Warrier published today on Library Journal. 

 

Mr. Warrier, who is information librarian, has two jobs. The first is as a librarian at a community college. The second as a content curator at Neatorama.com where he "highlights" neat, odd, and fascinating bites of amusement, from the latest breakthroughs across hundreds of topics.

 

In the article he shares his insight and advice about content curation and on what it may take for newbies to break into this field.

 

"...content curators focus on the news needs of particular professions and industries."

 

Professional News Curation Examples

1) The staff of PRDaily.com, for example, provides public relations professionals with the latest and the best news about that industry.

2) DesignBoom.com keeps track of the newest and hottest trends in art and industrial design.

3) BusinessInsider.com highlights news about world markets.

 

Getting Started

You can get started in content curation quite quickly.

 

a) All you need is a social media platform, such as a blog, Twitter feed, open-access Facebook page, or Google+ profile.

b) Find the best content and add new items daily.

c) Focus not on your own interests, but those of your readership.

d) Prove that you can draw readers as a trusted source and keep them coming back for more.

e) Then you should try to secure an internship.

Many content curation firms, such as Mediaite, Gawker and Flavorwire, offer internships that will give you hands-on training in the field. They’ll train you to examine your audience, compile potential sources and pitch your content to the audience in an attention-grabbing way."

The Publicly Curated Multimedia Library of America Is Coming: extraMUROS | Social Media Content Curation | Scoop.it

From the official page: "extraMUROS is an open-source HTML5 infrastructure built on public APIs that aims to fundamentally change the way people discover, curate and share digital collections of books, images, sounds, video and other media.

extraMUROS is a unique collaboration between the metaLAB (at) Harvard, Frances Loeb Library, the Harvard Library Lab and a network of journalists, designers and developers."

 

From the official video:

"extraMUROS is a groundbreaking project that aims to shape the Digital Library of America into a multimedia library without walls through an open-source HTML5 platform built on public APIs.

 

Extramuros strives to fundamentally transform how people:

 

a) Discover

b) Curate 

c) Share digital collections.

 

Extramuros is made up of four key features:

1) Shared Access

Interconnectedness between libraries, museums,  and national archives and repositories (Flickr, YouTube, Internet Archive, tec.) of all kinds.

 

2) Visual Discovery
Ability to explore content collections in completely new ways driven by innovative visualization approaches. 

 

3) Curation

A collaborative curation system open to anyone to bring together collections, exhibitions or galleries combining text, images, audio and video.

 

4) Multi-Channeling

Accessibility online and on iPads and other mobile devices."

 

Robin Good writes: This looks like a very promising project, which brings together and pioners some really innovative approaches in search and discovery of content. 

As can be seen in the video, a Chrome extension has already been developed, helping active curator to easily collect content in a variety of formats and from very different kind of sources, into browsable collections.

 

Inspiring. 8/10

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....

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.

Why Content Curation Is Here to Stay

Why Content Curation Is Here to Stay | Social Media Content Curation | Scoop.it
The debate over the rules of content creation and curation continues to rage. We spoke to some experts for their opinion on the issues surrounding copyright and monetization.

Content aggregation (the automated gathering of links) can be seen on sites like Google News. Overall, this type of aggregation has been seen as a positive thing for content creators and publishers, and up until very recently, it was left to technology. Content creation, meanwhile, was a human effort.

But all that changes with curation — the act of human editors adding their work to the machines that gather, organize and filter content.

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.
