This article was written by Josh Sternberg for digiday. I selected this piece because it definitely addressed this question and provided some very good insights and strategies that brands need to know.
It's very difficult for brands to amass sizeable audiences on their own nowadays says Neil Chase, SVP of editing and publishing at Federated Media.
**If a brand is an expert in a certain topic, their reputation might make them a credible source of information,”
Here are some of the takeaways:
**The best way to do it is to identify a high-interest topic that you want to be perceived as an expert in,” he said.
**“Curate that topic and provide some context around it. If you’re curating a lot of content in a topic area, over time that leads to expertise and credibility.”
**brands have to know each of their customers and have the credibility in their field to get consumers to trust the content they spread
**“Brands have a content story to tell,” said Colleen DeCourcy, CEO of Socialistic, a social media agency.
****“Some brands have data and research they have gathered in the creation of their products that can be contextualized and turned into content — which can give them both real authority on the topic and some real ROI for their effort.”
**Brands need to be careful in not only what, but how much they curate.
**Brands need to make sure they’re not just regurgitating content, but instead offering readers/followers valuable information
**Steve Rubel, Edelman’s evp of global strategy and insights, suggests brands start by having an editorial point of view and deciding where the content will live — the brand’s site or aggregation sites like Tumblr or Pinterest.
**The plus side is that once you do figure out how you want to curate and it becomes part of your broader communications strategy — it’s pretty easy to establish a voice.

Food for thought from Toddi Gutner for Business2Community:
I found this piece particularly interesting and wanted to call your attention to it. It's one of those things we all experience everyday, but do we really stop to ask ourselves this question:
****Are You Mobilizing Communities or Just a Voice in the Crowd?
I've personally covered events online, tweeting the main points live and although I was able to filter and capture the essence of what was going on, I had to go back and really absorb the information and then try to apply it to my business effectively. (not always an easy task) :-)
It's a juggling act but one I think we're all experiencing on one level or another.
Continuous Partial Attention (CPA) is the process of paying simultaneous but superficial attention to a number of sources of incoming information.
This term, coined by writer and consultant Linda Stone in 1998, aptly describes the scene at the recent Council of Public Relations Firms Critical Issues Forum on Social Revolution:
This is what particularly caught my attention:
**What was the unintended consequence (UC) - these being outcomes that are not intended by a purposeful action?
**They can be positive, negative or have a perverse effect contrary to what was originally intended.
****So are there any unintended consequences to compulsively tweeting from an event or otherwise?
This is a question I have yet to answer. It is sort of like waiting to see what the side effects of a drug will be years after it has been approved.
One UC of CPA may be that peoples’ attention spans (already truncated by USA Today and sound bite television) and
**related ability for analytic thought will be reduced to nanoseconds.
I'd love to hear your Thoughts?

Now this is an eye-opener! We all know that Millenials are leading the way in the digital world. Well here is a must-see video from MTV, along with a very important article written by Steve Rosenbaum for mediaite.com.
Introducing "The Curated 'me'". The online persona that we portray to the whole world that is very likely different to how we show ourselves to our frriends and family.
"What’s changing for young people is changing for all of us. How we connect, how we share. How we present our digital selves."
"In some ways it is the evolution of our society from physical to digital. In the past we knew that we had to behave one way at work, another in a public park, and another at Church or Synagogue. Now those behaviors move online."
Here are some of the things that caught my eye:
**** The presentation was called ‘Millennials: Decoded’, and was broken into four findings. The Curated Me, Publicly Intimate, Like-A-Holism and Digi-Quette:
*** The Curated Me is almost like a prosthetic extension of ourselves: “You are the author of what gets put out there.”
*** Publicly Intimate: 94% agreed that texts are private. While platforms like Twitter and FB Status are public, with FB being more Superficial, and Twitter more Real. Phone calls are the least welcome, because they can be ‘awkward.’
*** Like-a-Holism (Are you a likeaholic?): 79% of respondents said their generation expects feedback, and 58% feel more confident when others respond. 33% said they feel disappointed when others don’t respond, and 23% said they feel alone if they don’t get feedback.
*** Digi-Quette: The etiquette of the always on web is emerging as a series of social behaviors. They can’t really be taught about it, because they know more about it than the older generation. Says one expert: “It’s like the air they breathe.”
