Content curation is going to be a huge trend and a great opportunity for many who understand their market, their needs and how they consume information.

 

Intro:

 

"David Shing, AOL's 'digital prophet' tells Dublin Web Summit that defriending and unfollowing will be the next trend among social media users..."

 

"People are going to start defriending people who constantly tweet and post on Facebook with rubbish info," he said.

 

Similarly for brands, he said it's very dangerous for companies to get involved on social networks unless they can guarantee a meaningful conversation.

 

"If I invite a brand into my home, there better be a good reason for them to come in."

Content Curators Will Change The Way We Consume Information On The Web

 This is a great article on curation from Finger Tips Music. There is much confusion out there, some people say content curation is just a buzz word, it is so much more and what I've highlighted below is just the tip of the iceberg.

 

Curated by JanLGordon covering  Content Curation, Social Media & Beyond

 

Here's what caught my attention:

 

Curating is not just filtering

 

****Curators must keep selections to a rigorous minimum.

 

**One long-running model is the site Very Short List, which selects but one thing a day to inform you about.

 

****The difference between filtering and curating is, however, more than quantitative.

 

******A curator aims to present web content in a manner that removes it from the medium’s inherent endlessness as well as its relentless robotic-ness.

 

****** This can be done only with the care and attention of an individual intelligence.

 

*******A curator, alive to context and nuance, has a voice, a sensibility, a vibe; there is something inherently idiosyncratic about curating.
