New Curation App: Google Targets Flipboard With Currents | GigaOM

New Curation App: Google Targets Flipboard With Currents | GigaOM | Social Media Productivity | Scoop.it

Google is getting into the personalized news delivery app game with Google Currents, a new product available Thursday for Android and iOS devices.

 

Google Currents is a slightly different product than Flipboard or its ilk, since it doesn’t draw links directly from social networks like Twitter and Facebook. Instead, it grabs content from discrete sources. Currents offers many sources to choose from (including GigaOM) in a variety of categories, and even allows you to follow individual content curators, like Robert Scoble and Guy Kawasaki, or any Google+ public stream.

 

Content is a little more organized than in Flipboard or other apps, and publishers have more control over how it appears thanks to a self-service platform also launched Thursday that allows them to brand and customize their content, even without developer know-how. It’s a very nice way to both encourage small producers to get on board with Currents, and also help expand Google’s available content library for readers....

Hi Robin,
an app is different from tool.
I filter personalized news, sources and delivery that I wish to receive through an app (Flipboard, Google Currents, ...). It also is human process.

Instead,curation tools is Scoop.it where we are the curators, curating our magazine.
This is my opinion.

Robin Good's comment, December 9, 2011 6:14 AM
Thank you for replying Giuseppe.

So, if I understand this from you correctly, curation tools allow you to select and publish, while curation "apps" are for you the same as news readers and news discovery tools.

If that is the case, when Scoop.it will release its iPhone app (very soon) what will distinguish it from a news discovery tool if for you they are all "curation apps"?

Thank you for your patience on this, as I am trying to understand how other people like you view and classify curation tools.

Hello Robin,
I confirm it, about the first part of your last comment.

When Scoop.it will release its iPhone app, it will be both: tool and app.

I am curator in active way with curation tool, I filter the news that I want to publish in my topic. I am the "owner" of this magazine.

PocketMod: The Free Recyclable Personal Organizer | Social Media Productivity | Scoop.it

Here is a quote from the Website.  "The PocketMod is a new way to keep yourself organized. Lets face it, PDAs are too expensive and cumbersome, and organizers are bulky and hard to carry around. Nothing beats a folded up piece of paper. That is until now. With the PocketMod, you can carry around the days notes, keep them organized in any way you wish, then easily transfer the notes to your PDA, spreadsheet, or planner."

Sites is Google's free tool to create custom websites. Similar to a wiki, you can develop the site by yourself or choose to collaborate with others on the creation and content of the pages. Then, you can decide on the level of sharing you would like to permit. You can determine who the owners are, whom you would like to give permission to edit and revise the site, and whom you would like to give permission to view the site. You can limit viewing your site to a small, private group or you can choose to publish it so that it is accessible to anyone in the world.

12 Rules of Blogging Survival: Content Curation is Great Strategy | Problogger

12 Rules of Blogging Survival: Content Curation is Great Strategy | Problogger | Social Media Productivity | Scoop.it

I like this article.  It provides some good insight for posting material!

 

Excerpt from article:

 

Blog readers have a myriad of reading options for almost every topic you can think of. In fact, within your niche, potential customers may be enjoying blog posts written by your competitors while they ignore your blog like the plague.

 

There are 12 ways for your blog to survive and thrive.

 

1. Be the best teacher in your niche... (content curation strategy)

2. Be more personal than the others...

3. Be funnier than the others...

4. Say what everyone else thinks...

5. Be the expert on a specific sub-niche... (content curation strategy)

6. Have a bigger vision...

7. Be more extreme than the others...

8. Be more creative than the rest...

9. Cross-pollinate better than the others...

 

10. Be the best curator of meaningful content:

Find the best information that others have written and posted online—the best articles, charts, tables, infographics, videos, or pictures. Collect it in a logical, easy-to-use navigational structure on your blog.
Make sure you link to and give credit to your sources and only summarize (or take small portions of) the articles you link to. Content curation is a way to share great information that is already available and to become seen as a key source of great information.

 

11. Be the news source for your industry... (content curation strategy)

12. Work harder than the rest...
