Content Curation: 10 Tips To Help You Curate Ethically

Content Curation: 10 Tips To Help You Curate Ethically | Social Media sites | Scoop.it

Excerpt from the article by Pawan Deshpande and published on Content Marketing Institute:
"Many content curators are still unsure about what constitutes ethical curation, and how they can share third-party content without running afoul of copyright laws.
Here’s our 10-step checklist to help you curate ethically and effectively.

1. Draw from a variety of sources;
2. Prominently link to the original source;
3. Avoid “nofollow” links;
4. Quote sparingly;
5. Insert your own point of view;
6. Fill in the gaps;
7. Use thumbnail images;
8. Give readers the option to close an iFrame or share bar;
9. Add a new title;
10. Claim Google authorship, as appropriate..."

Each step is analyzed with more information. Read full original article here:

Those who have followed me for a while know that I am a big fan of WordPress. One of my blogs uses the fully hosted version, but the other two I own are self-hosted.

 

While I enjoy blogging on a WordPress.com site because the basic features are awesome (and free), I still prefer paying to get more flexibility. Most of this flexibility comes in the form of plugins.

 

There are plugins for pretty much everything right now. Ivan Dimitrijevic talks about 23,000, and they have been downloaded at least 480 million times!

 

In his article, he introduces five that look really worth a try. I haven’t used any of them, but I’m really thinking of checking out uSquare.  The others are Royal Slider, Social Network Tabs, LiveChat, and Frontend Builder.
