Content Curators Playing A Larger Role Online

Content Curators Playing A Larger Role Online | Social Media Optimization &  Search Engine Optimization | Scoop.it

Curated story by janlgordon.

 

Tony reminds us that content curators play a role in information overload - they take time to sort, select, comment on good content that helps keeps you current on your topic of interest.

 

Tony says:

 

"With the ever increasing amount of online information from social networks, the need for organizing it has never been greater. Look around and there’s no shortage of aggregation tools to help us filter out the important stuff."

 

Here's what caught my attention:

 

**In this world of information overload, there’s now a new layer in the media ecosystem: the curator. If it wasn’t for that person who retweeted the story in the first place, you probably wouldn’t have seen it.

 

**So naming the retweeters in daily promos is the right course of action. Twitter is like a fire hose and Paper.li is selecting random tweets that would have otherwise been missed.

 

**Yes, they’re randomly chosen but I find a lot of value in them because they praise others for their contributions.

 

**It reminds me that they’re part of my network and I can appreciate their contributions that much more. I know when I’m named in someone’s newspaper it motivates me to continue sharing that type of content.

A Visual History Of Twitter [Infographic

A Visual History Of Twitter [Infographic | Social Media Optimization &  Search Engine Optimization | Scoop.it
Twitter has certainly come a long way since that day in 2006 when it opened for the public to sign up.

 

Excerpt:

 

As of lately, it seems Twitter has gotten their act together, and they are actually doing quite well. That is, apart from the whole direct message thing not working properly and missing tweets.

 

I wonder how much they are working on that, and when it’s actually going to be solved. It would be interesting to know if they have even located the problem yet. This article isn’t about all the bugged code that obviously will be fixed in the near future (hopefully). It’s about the history of the brand as a whole.

 

The social media news site Mashable recently put together an infographic outlining the most significant milestones and records that portray the growth and importance that Twitter has been able to achieve.

 

What was considered a lot of tweets two years ago is quite ordinary today. For example, when Michael Jackson died, at the peak, there were 456 tweets sent every second.

 

When Beyonce announced she was pregnant, there were 8,868 tweets sent every second. That’s saying quite a lot about how much Twitter has grown since back in 2009 alone. It’s impressive and inspiring to say the least!
