Where Tweets Go To Die « (Re)Structuring Journalism

Where Tweets Go To Die « (Re)Structuring Journalism | Social Media Content Curation | Scoop.it
This should come as no surprise to anyone, but you’re unlikely to be reading this.

After all, you’re pretty busy, I’m sure, and constantly inundated with emails, tweets and news updates all the time. Perfectly understandable; so am I. And unless you’re a regular to this blog – and no, I don’t mean you, mom – then either you came here via a random search query (and guess how many people type “structured journalism” by chance into Google) or followed a tweet or a facebook update here. And let’s face it, who has time?

No one. No one really has time to follow the unending barrage of information that’s coming at us. It’s true, of course, that filtering mechanisms have improved greatly since the early days of the web, mostly courtesy of our friends – real and digital – who we depend on to sort out things we might like to read. As a wisdom-of-the-crowds mechanical turk, it works pretty well. I don’t have to scour the web for articles of interest to me; at least, I don’t have to scour it as much as I used to.

Journalism and curation: A small-town news organization leads the way

Journalism and curation: A small-town news organization leads the way | Social Media Content Curation | Scoop.it
As the number of information sources grows and become decentralized, here are four ways it helps news organizations and their communities:

1. Better information for the community and someone looking out for their interests to highlight the best.

2. Better journalism because the links to other sources can be put in context and explanations added.

3. More potential traffic and time on site for the news organization, which delivers more value to advertisers or sponsors. (More time on site would derive from having more links to engage readers, not from any assumption that the main site would publish more than teasers.

4. More exposure for smaller sites and other sources of information, who can potentially be part of a network that delivers more value to advertisers and users alike.

Jonathan Stray » The editorial search engine

Jonathan Stray » The editorial search engine | Social Media Content Curation | Scoop.it
It’s impossible to build a computer system that helps people find or filter information without at some point making editorial judgements. That’s because search and collaborative filtering algorithms embody human judgement about what is important to know.

I’ve been pointing this out for years, and it seems particularly relevant to the journalism profession today as it grapples with the digital medium.

It’s this observation which is the bridge between the front page and the search results page, and it suggests a new generation of digital news products that are far more useful than just online translations of a newspaper.
