What Makes a Good Content Curator?

What Makes a Good Content Curator? | Social Media Content Curationist | Scoop.it

Excerpted from the article:
"Sharing good content shows you understand what’s interesting and valuable to your target markets. It will help you increase your followers and establish your credibility.
A good content curator has to sift through tons of content, quickly and efficiently, finding what is both relevant and good quality.

So what does a good content curator look like?
1) Really Long Arms:
You have the expanded reach to know the smaller players with a unique perspective, the powerhouse publishers, and all of the niche players. This allows for a healthy variety of content, with differing perspectives.

2) Super Fast Scanning Eyes:
An efficient content curator knows how to scan an article for legitimacy, value, and relevance to their target market.

3) A Raised Eyebrow:
Each time you come upon something new, your eyebrow is already up, because you’re there to sniff it out to make sure it’ll pass the test. People will lose interest in what you share and you will hurt your credibility if you share content that isn’t high quality.

4) A Belly Full of Hunger:
Good content curators love what they do and are passionate about traversing the wide expanse of the web to find the best content possible."

What has long arms and raised eyebrows?

 

Charlotte L Weitze's curator insight, March 11, 2013 4:43 AM
Robin Good's insight:

 

Lindsey Weintraub at SocialMediaToday has a short but valuable guide to four key traits a good curator really needs to have.

 

From the ability to search and tap into sources that should not be what everyone else is looking at, to the ability to know in and out its chosen niche of interest and its players, the good content curator has an uncanny talent for scanning, selecting and triple-verifying anything potentially interesting before even considering showcasing in its selections.

 

Rightful. Good for anyone just starting out with curation. 7/10

PublishThis Improves Its Content Curation Platform To Help Brands Market More Efficiently | PandoDaily

PublishThis Improves Its Content Curation Platform To Help Brands Market More Efficiently | PandoDaily | Social Media Content Curationist | Scoop.it

Excerpted from article on PandoDaily:

"As consumers are spending increasing amounts of time online, and increasingly interacting with brands through social media, it’s become critical to deliver brand messaging through informative or entertaining content. For many brands, publishers, and agencies, one of the top tools for doing so is cloud-based content marketing platform PublishThis, which recently rolled out an updated third version of its product.

 

PublishThis utilizes semantic search technology to discover relevant and trending content within over 250,000 topics.

PublishThis currently has hundreds of clients, including such high profile names as Viacom, MTV, Cox, Ziff Davis, PaidContent.

 

PublishThis’ newest product update adds a social monitoring algorithm which monitors what’s being shared in real-time across the major social networks in the topics most relevant to each client. The platform’s updated analytics tools measure conversion of original and third-party curated  content.

 

The company offers curation tools which allow companies to customize this curated content, through adding annotations, highlights, comments, and meta tage, before republishing it on a company website, in email newsletter, or through social media feeds. Another new feature is PublishThis’ wordpress plugin which acts as a white-labeled hosting widget allowing companies to feature real-time curated content on their Web pages. This may take the form of a “related content,” “trending,” or “elsewhere on the Web” section alongside original content created by the brand.

 

Brands pay an annual license to access the PublishThis software. Three tiers of pricing range from the “tens of thousands of dollars” to “hundreds of thousands of dollars,” depending on the number of topics and sites a company is managing, the frequency with which they publish curated content, and other volume measures..."

New Social News Reader For Enterprise: Delve

New Social News Reader For Enterprise: Delve | Social Media Content Curationist | Scoop.it

Excerpted from Official Website:

"Delve is a smart, social news reader for professionals and organizations. We cut through the noise to get you the news that matters to your industry. You share and archive articles and insights on a private, secure network."

 

Here is an excerpt from review article on BetaKit:

"Social newsreaders like Flipboard, Zite, and Pulse have traditionally been aimed at the average reader, and while they have topics like business and technology, they don’t focus specifically on professionals and enterprises looking to stay informed on industry news.

Delve, a New York City-based startup that combines an editorial team with news aggregation, is trying to solve this problem with its social newsreader for professionals.

 

After signing up and choosing their topics of interests, Delve users receive a curated list of articles based on their sector, and what leading commentators are saying about these topics. From there they can participate in discussions with their colleagues using the forum feature, and recommend content to others on their team. Users get a daily roundup of the news and the discussions surrounding it via email.

 

Individuals and teams with up to nine users can use Delve for free, and the company is working with 15 pilot enterprise clients, and will charge companies on a per-seat basis after the test run.

 

The company plans on releasing a mobile app in about a month, which should help it compete with mobile-first newsreaders like iPhone apps Circa and Summly, tablet readers like Flipboard, and others like Prismatic that have a strong mobile presence. Delve doesn’t just compete with social readers though, it competes with the traditional ways employees share articles and discuss news, namely email, social networks, and industry newsletters. In terms of other newsreaders directed at teams, its strongest competition is Flud.it...."
