Insights & Tips On Curation, Social Media For Non-Profits, Video | Beth Kanter Interviews Robin Good

This is a great Scoop for my Social, Peer Learning & Curation stream, along with the Social Media Learning Lab stream, just after I put together a video for LA2M on this very topic mentioning BOTH Beth & Robin.


Here you go, from two great blogger/authors.  (My video post will follow next.) ~ Deb


Beth Kanter interviewed Robin Good a few days ago.


Beth:  Robin, I really enjoyed listening to you, I know this is aimed at non-profits but your insights, tips and suggestions are something we can all use. 


Key points:

  • BEFORE you get on the web, decide how much time you're going to spend on there, otherwise it could become addictive, and this can happen if you're not careful (hmmm how many of you can relate to this?)  
  • Know who your audience is, pick a very specific topic
  • Be as narrow as you can, find great pieces, pull out what you think would be relevant for them. (Being too broad doesn't help filter out the noise for these people, it adds to it)

Jan - thanks for scooping this. I learned a lot from this interview. I also transcribed it and have included what I think of some of Robin's "classic" curation resources!

I revised this post and put the link to the entire interview in it. Really great stuff, Robin is so amazing, good work!
