Social Media Influencers’ 5Ws For Content Curation | Intelegia

Social Media Influencers’ 5Ws For Content Curation | Intelegia | Social Media Optimization &  Search Engine Optimization | Scoop.it

Excerpted from the article:

 

"To stand out from the masses and to reach their audience, professionals and companies must focus on relevant content to be able to engage efficiently.

 

Social media influencers have become new channels of information and new web publishers or content curators.

 

Knowing that their leadership is largely dependent on the quality and value of how they engage, they deserve special attention.

 

The content that they disseminate via the web and social media must meet specific criteria and respect the “5 W rule”: Who, What, When, Where, Why.

 

1) WHO is target for the message?

Build on the relevant and personalized message...

 

2) WHAT is the value of the message?

Give priority to rich content and quality of experience...

 

3) WHEN should the message be distributed?

Adapt the message for different contexts...

 

4)WHERE should the content be disseminated?

Vary the content sources to benefit from all formats...

 

5) WHY choose one tool over another?

Select appropriate tools according to their needs..."

Curator’s Code proposal receives pushback: “I’m not a ‘curator’ ” critic complains

Curator’s Code proposal receives pushback: “I’m not a ‘curator’ ” critic complains | Social Media Optimization &  Search Engine Optimization | Scoop.it

This piece was brought to my attention by my friend and colleague, Doug Millison from Siliconvalleywatcher. If you're curating content, following it as it evolves  or a happy consumer of content that a trusted source selected and curated for you, you may have seen the original article by Maria Popova, from brainpickings. The author of this commentary is Marco Arment who disagrees with what she said and this is just a snipit of her article. He feels there is too much "aggregation, rewriting, not giving credit to the original source, curators shouldn't be credited" and he doesn't see value in curation.

 

Here is the original article he is responding to curated by Robin Good along with several comments which were just as interesting. The good curators are conscientous and hard-working.

 

 

Credit and Attribution Are Fantastic Untapped Resources for Discovery, Not Duties: Maria Popova and The Curstors Code, via @RobinGood http://bit.ly/yiFOU3

 

My summary:

 

Maria is saying that when a curator spends hours looking for quality content, then adds commentary or additional context, this should be looked upon as "intellectual capital".  In response to Marco Arment, A trusted curator is not looking to highjack the original content creator's article and keep them on their own site. Just the opposite, if they're doing their job properly, they should give the hightlights so the reader can scan it quickly and either click to the original source or read it later. It's almost like creating a trailer for the author and helping the reader get the main points so they can go on with their day.

 

Obviously, it is up those of us who are working dilligently to provide their audiences with relevant information, to continue curating, crediting and linking back to the original source.

 

I think this is a process and gradually people will come to see the value of what we do - hopefully the creators of original material. We are giving them exposure to new audiences, helping to take their post to another level by adding additional information, inviting comments, etc.

 

We are all suffering from too much content and information and it's not going to get any better. Trusted soures are helping people to navigate through the noise and this is only the beginning.

 

I value your comments and opinions on this topic.

Both people are correct. This is a VERY important grey area you have uncovered that should be turned into a "global" celebrity death match. Because both points are valid. If you would like to turn up the heat on this controversy, contact me. - R

How to Build Content for SEO Without Bombarding Readers

How to Build Content for SEO Without Bombarding Readers | Social Media Optimization &  Search Engine Optimization | Scoop.it
A long time ago, back in the dark ages of 2008, we wrote an article about building your SEO content.

 

How Much Can You Reasonably Expect Them To Read?

 

With content domination, it’s easy to get into the habit of pouring out content in a flood. You can, however, ending up washing your readers right out of your pages, articles and blog posts. For example, sometimes Mashable puts out several articles in a day, and you think, “Wow, I wish I could do that!” Not everybody is a Mashable. In fact, most people aren’t.

The "specialist/generalist marketers" - those who excel at a particular facet but have competence in all of them - are best poised to win in the upcoming decade of marketing".

What That Puppy Photo on Pinterest Says About the Future of the Internet

What That Puppy Photo on Pinterest Says About the Future of the Internet | Social Media Optimization &  Search Engine Optimization | Scoop.it
The social web is more image-driven than ever. What does that mean for the people who use it?

 

The rise of the image. The web, being huge, will easily accommodate content that expresses itself textually and visually (and whatever else comes along) as it, inevitably, keeps expanding.

 

While we're seeing, in the content world, the rise of image-heavy features like Buzzfeed scrollfests and HuffPostian slideshows and The Atlantic's own, awesome In Focus, we're seeing at the same time the rise of text-heavy content from Longform.org, and Longreads, and, for that matter, long-form narrative sub-designations on Technology channels of magazine websites.

 

We're seeing Atavist-style works that take the most textual technology there is -- the book -- and reimagine it as a dynamic artifact of multimedia. Words and images will always coexist, and to great effect; it takes a village to make a LOLcat.

The impact of social media on our lives, and on our businesses has been remarkable. The full extent of how social media adoption and use has changed the way we share information, evaluate products and spread our message still remains to be seen.

 

But what is apparent is that people have access to tools that can potentially give them a larger platform with more leverage than ever before.

 

The intent of monitoring is to tie social business intelligence to key business metrics. And what’s most powerful about this data is that it reflects the unbiased, unsolicited opinion of consumers.

Inbound Marketing & SEO – Seize Opportunity or Resist Change

Inbound Marketing & SEO – Seize Opportunity or Resist Change | Social Media Optimization &  Search Engine Optimization | Scoop.it

"Two different sides, or hemispheres, of the brain are responsible for different ways of thinking and as soon as we look into the difference between the left and right brain hemispheres it clearly becomes apparent why some people are more technically driven than others and why so much conflict and debate surrounds topics such as inbound media, SEO, and social media.

 

"To put is simply and go back to basics - left-brain marketers who tend to be analytical collide with right-brained marketers who think holistically and are more open to conceptual thinking."

 

My favorite quote from this excellent article: "Lee Odden from Top Rank quoted 'It’s not SEO anymore, It’s Marketing. Deal with it.'"
