Curation on the Go! - Topsy Launches Realtime Search Engine For Mobile Devices

Curation on the Go! - Topsy Launches Realtime Search Engine For Mobile Devices | social media literacy | Scoop.it

Robin Wauters just posted this in Techcrunch a few hours ago 12/13/11

 

Topsy Labs is releasing a social, realtime search engine for mobile devices today, enabling users to discover relevant chatter about any topic based on data from Twitter and Google+.

 

**Also useful: search queries can be automatically saved so users can revisit specific results at any time, and any piece of social content can be referenced historically for any topic, term or link.

 

**Think about how amazing this will be for curators - having timely information at your fingertips wherever you are and readers who are consuming or bookmarking content that's meaningful to them in real-time so that nothing slips through the cracks.

 

What caught my attention:

 

**Topsy cites a Performics study that says 32 percent of people search more on mobile phones than they do on computers, and that 75 percent of people think that mobile search makes their life easier.

Curación de contenidos desde dispositivos móviles

The Future of Reading is Context, Location, Device & Time

The Future of Reading is Context, Location, Device & Time | social media literacy | Scoop.it

This piece was written by Tim Carmody for Wired magazine, all marketers need to shift their thinking on  how to present content on the go that is compact, valuable and meaningful to reach their audience wherever they are. 

 

Intro: Reading is changing, even more than e-readers, tablets, or “readers’ tablets,” smartphones are changing it.

 

**It’s a mix of what’s going on in the world and what’s going on in your world, fused together. 

 

Here's what caught my attention: I'm looking at this from a content curator's point of view: **The flurry of activity around personalized news for smartphones shows that as popular as the iPad has been, and as popular as smaller Android-based devices like the Kindle Fire or Nook Tablet might become,

 

the sheer number of users on mobile phones are impossible to ignore.

 

****It also shows that customers are demanding the ability to sync and read their content across as many devices as possible.

 

Finally, the subtle differences in UI and app design show that developers aren’t just thinking about building for different screen sizes, ****but around a whole range of factors that affect how, where, what and when we read.

 

For the new mobile reading, context becomes a cluster of these factors.

 

Flipboard’s Mike McCue highlights a few of these in an interview with the Los Angeles Times‘ David Sarno: "It’s a mix of what’s going on in the world and what’s going on in your world, fused together. And it might seem weird that I’m looking at a picture of my daughters, and then the next flip I’m reading a story about Iran. But to me as a reader, when I’m standing in line waiting to get my coffee, those things are what I care about."

Flipboard has been my favorite for the iPad, and now that it's available on the iPhone, I'm more thrilled than ever!
