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.

Great Content Curation Models: E-learning Examples by David Anderson

Great Content Curation Models: E-learning Examples by David Anderson | social media literacy | Scoop.it

If you are looking for inspiration when it comes to content curation, here is a great example at work.

 

Elearning Examples is a curated collection of "examples" from the real world of online communications in the areas of "multimedia journalism", "infographics" and "html5" among others.

For each one of these categories the author has written and edited a specific information card containing relevant information, images and links to the work being referenced.

 

The design of the site and the quality of the work "examples" being showcased make this a good example of what good "content curation" is. 

 

Clearly, the work produced by this site, produces no noise or regurgitation of information, but rather offers a better way to make sense and discover the communication areas being curated on the site.

 

Thanks to David Anderson, an e-learning designer & community manager at Articulate for having created this excellent curated set of galleries.

 

Inspiring. 9/10

How To Build A Tribe On Twitter

How To Build A Tribe On Twitter | social media literacy | Scoop.it

This piece was written by Sean Platt for his blog. It is full of great information on how to use twitter and build a community of people which can result in tremendous opportunities for you.

 

Intro:

 

Because attention is so easy to gather on Twitter, and because your follower count can climb with the speed of a soaring stock, you might find yourself falling into the too typical trap of thinking Twitter’s purpose is to gather as much attention as possible. It’s not.

 

**Attention is great, but it’s only the end result of getting what you’re really after – quality relationships.

 

Here's what caught my attention:

 

**The best way to get the most from your Twitter conversations is to understand the ecosystem.

 

**Twitter isn’t a chat, it’s a never-ending party.

 

**When you have a conversation with someone, one-on-one, the two of you are both engaged; two listeners sharing a single conversation.

 

**Take time to get to know your fans. Not just because they’ve been helping you out and you want to repay the favor, but because they can help you understand more about who your audience is and how you can serve them best.

 

You want to find the signal through the noise, and filtering your tweets is a great way to make that happen.

Content Creation vs Content Curation: Is It Really An Either Or?

Content Creation vs Content Curation: Is It Really An Either Or? | social media literacy | Scoop.it

This great piece was written by Joe Pulizzi, founder of Content Marketing Institute 

 

There is no curation without original content. However, curators can expand the readership and help their niche find meaning and insight in the material as it relates to them. 

 

He says:

 

"So many organizations are getting caught up in content curation, but the real power of content marketing lies in original content creation."

 

Curation is more than a tactic, it is coming to forefront because

 

**people are overwhelmed with too much information.

 

If you're going to create content, I say mixing that with curated content might be a better way to go, again this depends on many factors,  but that's only my opinion.

 

Here are a few things that caught my attention:

 

Y0ur 2012 Checklist -

 

He says, yes, you can and should use content curation techniques, but this should be secondary.

 

I say, Curation is more than a technique and will go beyond a buzz word in 2012 as people learn new techniques.

 

He says:

 

"Focus on the true pain points of your customers and start planning content series around answering those pain points".

 

**I definitely agree but this can be accomplished by curation as well. It's not an either or, a curator can add more vital information, another perspective. provide resources or any number of things beyond the original article.

 

He says:

 

"Find the content curators in your industry and form relationships with them. They’ll help you spread the word about your great content".

 

I say:

 

I believe content creators will want to seek out good content curators  to curate their work.  I watched a six minute video yesterday, the title was "Is Your Content Good Enough To Be Curated"? Now that's a shift in thinking and a very interesting question to ponder, I say, stay tuned........

 

I think both are necessary in different proportions for different types of businesses.

 

What do you think?

Curation Tools That Help You Find Hidden Gems That Nobody Else Is Posting

Rob Diana writes: "The core of my concern is that curators need tools to find those stories that may not be as popular as others.

Otherwise, all news comes from a few select sites that are read by the masses. Obviously, this is not what we want to have happen."

 

He couldn't be more right. 

The rest of his article, dating back to November, offers good insight into what the 1% of former Google Reader was really doing and what they are looking for now that it is gone.

28 Major Trends for 2012 and Beyond – Part 1

28 Major Trends for 2012 and Beyond – Part 1 | social media literacy | Scoop.it

Futurist Thomas Frey gives us some fascinating predictions for the very exciting year ahead. It's a great post with essential information to shift your thinking and get ready for 2012.

 

My intro:

 

There were so many things that I could comment on but my primary focus in 2012 is the future of content curation, the evolution and its impact on how we utilize and digest data in our business and personal lives. How will curation be perceived in 2012 and what will the monetary value be for content curation? 

 

Having said that, this is what particularly caught my attention:

 

Information Doesn’t Want to be Free– In 1984 at a Hackers Conference, Silicon Valley futurist Stuart Brand was the first to use the phrase: “Information wants to be free” in response to a point made by Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak but continued

 

“On the other hand, information wants to be expensive, because it’s so valuable.

 

**"The right information in the right place just changes your life."

 

**This set the stage for an entirely new era of free-thinking “free” advocates"

 

****My commentary: One of the reasons trusted content curators will become a very valuable asset to the information economy:

 

****"There is always a cost to “free.”

 

****While it may not extract a payment from your bank account, there is always a “time” cost involved.

 

****Without some amount of friction, the volume of information you have to sift through skyrockets and even with good search technology, your time-costs climb dramatically.

 

****The days of “free” thinking are numbered. Look for this mindset to shift over the coming years. More details here. This article is from 9/2/2011 - Two things that caught my attention....

 

**While it is true that the Internet is eliminating many of the gatekeepers, people trying to break into a field without going through gatekeepers find it far harder to gain credibility and foster a “trust” relationship with their audiences.

 

****In the end it still boils down to trust. Can I trust the person I am reading or listening to? Are they an accurate source of information? Will it be worth the time and brainpower I’m investing?

Curation is the New Creation

Curation is the New Creation | social media literacy | Scoop.it

This excellent article was written in September, 2010 by Paul Gillin for BtoB Magazine. It is more timely and relevant today than ever before because more businesses are recognizing the need for good curators to help them sort through and make meaning out of important information they need to stay on top of things.

 

Here are a few of the things that particularly caught my attention:

 

**As information providers B2B companies are uniquely positioned to take advantage of curation.

 

**In most cases, their customers have highly specific information needs-such as business analytics, chemistry or manufacturing.

 

**Engineers don't want to spend time combing through search results, so they appreciate those suppliers that provide that value for them.

 

The author also anticipates and answers a question that has been posed by some people in recent weeks:

 

****You might think that trading on other people's content would raise intellectual property problems, but quite the opposite has occurred, Mike Graney (Senior VP of Business Development at the Economic Development Council of Western Massachusetts) said.

 

****“We're a great content driver for the publications,” some of which now actively court the council for visibility because of the traffic boost they receive.

 

****Done right, the process is a win-win for both creator and curator.

 

One point I would like to make here regarding the definition of content curation being stated here and elsewhere as: "the discipline of filtering and organizing knowledge."  Museum curators put little plaques under paintings or sculptures that they have 'filtered and organized'.  This provides context, which is an aspect of curation that is no less important for the modern, content curator.

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."

At the end of 2011, Social marketing stands at a profound crossroads. Some organizations are finally embracing the importance of social networks and, as a result, increasing investments in creative engagement, marketing, and service programs. Others see the future value, but lag behind in execution. At the vanguard, Social Businesses drive a virtuous cycle of discovery: Their successes in Social marketing lead to new data, which lead to insights, which lead to new and more effective programs as well as the business systems and processes necessary to improve internal and external collaboration...

Your “How-To” Post Will Fail If You Don’t Use These Techniques

Your “How-To” Post Will Fail If You Don’t Use These Techniques | social media literacy | Scoop.it

Gone are the days when you could write a simple “how-to” blog post and rank in the top search results. Why is that? Two very good reasons.

 

First, all of the general and highly-competitive posts like “how-to blog” or “how-to find a roommate” are already written.

 

The other reason is Google Panda. Remember Google’s update this past year that took down a lot of the content farms? That algorithm was designed to penalize short and shallow articles and reward high-quality content.

 

Now, I’ve got good news and bad news for you.

The Most Effective Tools To Enrich Reader Engagement On Your Site

The Most Effective Tools To Enrich Reader Engagement On Your Site | social media literacy | Scoop.it

What do we mean when talking about reader engagement? Well, in terms of blogging the first things that come to mind are comments, sharing, questions, conversion rates. To sum up we could compare reader engagement with building a community. A community where readers care about each other, where action doesn’t stop after reading the final paragraph and where exciting discussions are born. Unfortunately, good content and neat design aren’t the only factors which affect reader engagement. You need to learn to focus readers attention and start a conversation. Developing an engagement is a win-win situation. Your visitors will want to explore more and join the conversation but you, as the publisher, will be looking at higher conversion rates.

 

Gamification is a whole branch in reader engagement which brings together game mechanics and marketing to create engagement and solve problems. What do we understand with game mechanics from a web standpoint? Well, that doesn’t necessarily has to be the traditional online games as we are used to seeing them...

The New Attention Economy - Why Content Needs to Be Everywhere

The New Attention Economy - Why Content Needs to Be Everywhere | social media literacy | Scoop.it

This piece was written by Ryan Lawler for Gigagom

 

****Content marketing is part of content curation this article is written for whose main product is video, like Netflix and Hollywood studios. However, if you're  are you're using video as part of your content mix, it's important to be thinking about where you distribute content. Each medium is different, be thinking about how your audience consumes media and what you need to do to be infront of your readers or customers wherever they are.

 

Intro:

 

"The media world is changing, due to new devices from which viewers can access content and the ease of finding content on-demand.

 

This is the world in which many of us live in today. Viewers still look for the best content, but in many cases, it’s limited to the best content available on whatever devices they’re using."

 

This opens the door for other video publishers to potentially win over audiences on platforms where content selection isn’t as strong.

 

**consumers are now in charge of when and how they watch video content. No longer content to be stuck to someone else’s schedule, consumers expect to be able to access their favorite content whenever they want and on a wide range of devices.

 

As a result, the media companies that will win are those that recognize the need to be everywhere

 

When it comes to capturing consumers’ attention now, a piece of content is only as good as its distribution.

 

If it’s not available on the device that a user wants to view video on, then they’ll watch something else.

 

Which is why now is such a critical time for traditional media companies.

 

**If they don’t have a strategic plan to distribute their content on  pursuing a multiplatform strategy, whichever device the viewer uses to watch content, they risk alienating and eventually losing that audience.

Quora Expands Beyond Q&A, — Great for Curators - Here's Why

Quora is taking a step beyond Q&A this morning with its latest product launch, boards.

 

**Users can now set up their own personal-themed bookmarking boards, sort of like a Pinterest for text-based information.

 

Board onboarding (heh) is easy. Users who want to create a board will now see a “Create a board” option at the top right of Quora and on their header dashboard.

 

**Anything can be posted to a board, whether it be links to web content like news and video, images, stuff on Quora like Questions and answers or text commentary.

 

**Users can post content directly from Quora by clicking on the ‘Repost’ option under every question.

 

**Board Owners can add Authors and Followers to a board, as well as pay to add Topics.

 

**They can also set up the board in a grid or list format.

 

****The most interesting feature of boards, from a utility aspect, is that Authors can set up following granularity to public — i.e. everyone who follows the board Author will see content or limited only board followers.

 

**Boards will also now show up on Topics pages, as well as on your personal Quora profile page.

I really want to tell you about my lingerie ... but I'm not going to.

 

It's true that I've found a certain line of women's underwear that I'm so excited about that, at times, I'm inclined to want to tweet and Facebook about them. But clearly, I don't—because I impose upon myself the common sense "10 second rule."

 

As a business owner as well as an individual who values some boundaries on her privacy, I take 10 seconds to ask myself, Do I really want the whole world to know this about me?

Tips for Starting a New Facebook Fan Page

Tips for Starting a New Facebook Fan Page | social media literacy | Scoop.it

One of the things many people struggle with in social media are identity issues, and I am no different. Up until yesterday, my main Facebook entities included my personal profile and my fan page for Kikolani. While I love both of these, I found some problems with sharing links to posts I’ve done elsewhere. Specifically…

 

- Links I’ve posted to my personal profile lately haven’t gotten that much attention compared to plain status updates or photos.
- The fan page for this blog is focused on posts from this blog only. Fans didn’t sign up for posts from elsewhere.


So the solution was creating a new Facebook page. This page is specifically focused on my freelance writing and blogging as a whole so it can be a platform where I can share links to anything I have written anywhere...

Shopping is a form of entertainment for some and something to be more avoided than herpes for others.

 

Shopping brings some to tears, for the retail and fashion obsessed it is a joyous synergy and celebration of capitalism, consumerism and style.
Waiting for new designs to be launched at the favourite fashion store are waited upon by fashionistas with expectant excitement, like children waiting for Santa and his sleigh.

 

Sharing your shopping experiences was usually reserved to a chat over the phone with your girlfriends or while having a coffee or a quick liquid lunch.


Shopping has been social for a long time but now we have social networks that can enhance and accelerate that joy by being able to share in an instant with 200 friends at once on Facebook, rather having to wait for the weekend....
