We are very pleased to announce that the Internet Archive has joined the OpenGLAM Network.

The Internet Archive has been one of the leading lights in the movement to get more freely available copies of public domain works online. It has also been pioneering the attempt to archive the internet, keeping a record of millions of pages for future generations.

We’re looking forward to collaborating with the Internet Archive around the development of our tools for digital scholarship and crowdsourced data enrichment as well as working with them to surface more of the wonderful works found in their vast libraries through projects like The Public Domain Review.

Local News Curation + Community Support: The Breaking News Network Winning Formula

Local News Curation + Community Support: The Breaking News Network Winning Formula | Social Media Thread | Scoop.it

Robin Good's curator insight, April 2, 2013 2:59 AM



If you were wondering how likely it is that news curation may become a key strategy for offering quality local news, you should check out this three-year old project called The Breaking News Network.


BNN, founded by Pat Kitano, already covers 350 cities worldwide by curating the most interesting local news stories from indigenous blogs and RSS feeds and having a unique focus on supporting community voices and interests.


BNN, in its own words is an active, community-sourced and locally driven information network, that uses curation to provide just-in-time relevant info and news to its communities.

From the official site: "The Breaking News Network delivers social media sourced news and information to over 350 cities and neighborhoods worldwide.


We’re unique to local publishing because we curate and publish the most interesting media and blog feeds in each city (that means less petty crime and accidents, more events, opinions and commentary) to create an aggregate real time ticker tape of literally everything happening in a city.


Every city’s WordPress based website (example: BreakingSFNews.com) broadcasts more than just the usual daily news; it curates news by category: Things to Do, Sports, Food, Culture, etc. so users can find breaking news by topic of interest.


We utilize the curation and presentation tools by Rebelmouse to display content in a visual format.


We deliver localized news streams through Twitter and Facebook for each city and have amassed over 400,000 fans/followers who appreciate our real time local content."


One interesting aspect of The Breaking News Network is its strategic positioning, throughout all of its instances, as a collector and amplifier for the news coming from relevant local institutions and communities providing them with extra visibility and a very relevant context to reach out to interested people.


From Journalisaccelerator.com: "When BNN was launched three years ago to give voice to community causes, Kitano brought a unique knowledge from early experiments using Twitter (2006 – 2009) and social media to develop hyperlocal community information networks for the real estate market.


Focusing on social at the outset, Kitano was “cobbling together” segmented lists on Twitter before Twitter had even created “lists.” (For context, Twitter launched in July of 2006.)


Kitano sees BNN providing a shared social channel – one community, one voice, one cause at a time – with promise of doing good for others by supporting civic groups, local causes and arts organizations."


Here, in more detail, some of the community support they provide: "We provide free access for local institutions to our 350+ Twitter feeds via our unique Community Retweet Program.

We also provide this access to local politicians and local media so they can broadcast their most important messages to our communities.


We create national campaigns and build brand advocate networks for good causes.


We create unique ways for our readers to interact with their local institutions, like the National Aquarium and Chicago’s International Beethoven Festival."

The Gap Between Social Media and Business Impact: 6 stages of social business transformation

The Gap Between Social Media and Business Impact: 6 stages of social business transformation | Social Media Thread | Scoop.it

Over the last several years, businesses have increased the pace of adopting social media strategies for use in marketing, service and other related capacities. What’s becoming very clear however is that adopting social media and understanding its impact on customer and employee relationships and also the bottom line are not always linked. This disconnect between social media strategies and business value is forcing many executives to rethink their overall approach and the infrastructure they built to support it. The result of this reflective process is motivating organizations to transform everyday social media initiatives into deeper social business strategies

Gianluca Fiorelli does a good job, after his webinar last week, of reporting what are the key steps, resources and strategies to use to leverage the content curation approach for gaining visibility, followers and extra traffic across social media channels.


In this intro guide he addresses some of the basic questions received by webinar participants last week.


Some good resources for news discovery, but - in my opinion - too little in the way of good examples and what they are characterized by.



Useful as an intro guide for social media content marketers. 7/10

Moreover, you can easily add this animation to the PowerPoint template so every time you add a new slide to the presentation then the animation will be automatically used for the new slide.

Small Businesses Favor Tactics that Balance Customer Attraction, Retention - eMarketer | Social Media Thread | Scoop.it

Small businesses, frequently strapped for both time and cash, often need their marketing dollars to work double time—using the same resources to attract new business and retain loyal customers.

Online marketing service provider Constant Contact conducted a survey in October 2012 of 1,305 small businesses and nonprofits from its customer base to see how different tactics and channels balanced customer acquisition with customer retention.

Respondents were most likely to say that their website struck an effective balance: 77% said the site was well-suited both to engaging existing customers and attracting new ones. A majority of respondents felt similarly about their blog (69% said it was effective at both tasks) and their social media marketing efforts (60%).

Content Curation Primer

Content Curation Primer | Social Media Thread | Scoop.it

Content curation is the process of sorting through the vast amounts of content on the web and presenting it in a meaningful and organized way around a specific theme.  The work  involves  sifting, sorting, arranging, and publishing information.  A content curator cherry picks the best content that is important and relevant to share with their community. It isn’t unlike what a museum curator does to produce an exhibition:   They identify the theme, they provide the context, they decide which paintings to hang on the wall, how they should be annotated, and how they should be displayed for the public.

Content curation is not about collecting links or being an information pack rat, it is more about putting them into a context with organization, annotation, and presentation.     Content curators provide a customized, vetted selection of the best and most relevant  resources on a very specific topic or theme.  As Rohit Bhargava points out  in this post via Robin Good,   a content curator continually  seeks,  makes sense of,  and shares the best and most relevant content on a particular topic online.   Content curators have integrated this skill into their daily routine.
