How to Use “Curation” to Boost Content “Creation” | Social Media Optimization &  Search Engine Optimization | Scoop.it

This piece was written by Heba Hosny, a guest blogger for Lauralee Walker

 

This article is full of wonderful tips for taking your curation to the next level and embellish your original content.

 

"Content curation rewards are not limited to branding and SEO; it can also enhance the visibility and the quality of your own content."

 

There are many things that caught my attention, here are just a few gems:

 

Curated Content Can Inspire Topics For Created Content

 

If you don't master this one, all the other tips won't make any sense

 

****Understand which topics are irresistible to your target audience

 

My Commentary:

 

I love this one!

 

Here's the tip

 

****Instead of taking the easy route of sharing the topic with your audience, write a blog post to "build on" it.

 

You can build on a topic in different ways:

 

**Beg to differ politely

 

**Provide additional tips and insights

 

**Ask clarifying question(s)

 

My Commentary:

 

This is a great way to add "context" it can start conversations, which invites others to add their comments, bring new observations and more information about a particular topic.

 

**A perfect segue to building relationships, community, doing business and increasing knowledge.

Hi Beth,
I agree with you, I love the feeling of community and the collective wisdom, and you know "curation resonates with me":-)

Thanks so much for rescooping and sharing on twitter:-)

This has me thinking critically about how we are integrating social media. Inviting interaction has been a huge challenge. We are stimulating new conversations in real world time, but that's not reflected in comments and so forth. I like using Scoop.It widgets to get the newest scoop onto the bog in a timely manner and take some time to reflect on post content.

Twitter (Trust) research: It's Where the Money & Action is

Twitter (Trust) research: It's Where the Money & Action is | Social Media Optimization &  Search Engine Optimization | Scoop.it

Bob Brown of Network World has curated news of two very interesting Twitter research projects that caught my attention.

 

We all agree that freedom of speech is good,  and it's great that everyone can now  become a publisher. However, there's a double-edged sword: If we speak to a friend before we think something though, all will surely be forgiven and forgotten. After all, we all make mistakes. But if you click that Tweet or Share button too quickly, either succumbing to knee-jerk reactions or without first checking the facts, you may find the digital world to be less forgiving.

 

Content curators have to be especially vigilent about curating someone else's content to make sure the facts and information are correct.

 

I believe the research related to here is essential reading, as it is furtherment of an established and growing trend:

 

One relates to Wellesley College's Department of Computer Science where two professors have been awarded a near half million dollar National Science Foundation grant to:

 

****build an application that gauges the trustworthiness of information shared on social networks, and in particular Twitter.

 

This was originally envisioned as a form of spammer identification, but

 

****has broadened to be able to determine the past history of a tweeter and also whether information being received is available from multiple sources. 

 

The other brings us news of 'Tweetographer', a huge Data Mining project by two University of Cincinatti Computer Science students, descibed as:

 

"a real-time events guide extracted from information coming via large numbers of tweets." 

 

This could be available as a web or mobile app at the end of the year and one of the co-creators, Billy Clifton (his partner is Alex Padgett)

 

**sees the uses expanding in the future to predict election results and compiling product reviews.

 

My takeaways are:

 

**that we all need to be very aware that what we tweet today can and may be used against us in the future

 

**search is still very much in its infancy when it comes to engine sophistication, stay tuned.
