Why Content Curation is the new Blogging

Why Content Curation is the new Blogging | EdTech, E-Learning | Scoop.it

This post was written in May of 2011, but  it's one of those pieces that is worth repeating because it's full of good insights and information. 


Here's an into:

 

During these days I’m questioning myself about today’s online media industry recurring topic of discussion: the so-called content curation. The term itself can be identified with the concept of “caring about content.”

 

This concept, obviously, can be investigated from a variety of viewpoints: it revolves around manipulating information, news, contents available online to a new form with sensibly higher ambitions in terms of vision, lifecycle and usefulness.

 

It’s about producing contents that, on average, are well worth an enhanced amount of attention respect to the so-called “world buzz,” the avalanche of information micro-bits we receive daily from the Internet through social media, blogs, online newspapers, and sometimes and unfortunately from content farms.

 

On a more operational level, an interesting definition that you can find online follows (from here)

 

“Content Curation is a term that describes the act of finding, grouping, organizing or sharing the best and most relevant content on a specific issue.”

The Value of Curation (and Why Companies Should Care)

The Value of Curation (and Why Companies Should Care) | EdTech, E-Learning | Scoop.it

The noun form of the verb “curate” is “curation” and it translates into the act of “selecting, organizing and looking after items in (a collection or exhibition).” For hundreds of years, museums and art galleries hired people called curators who decided which pieces/exhibits to show and which to tuck in the basement.

 

Over the last few years, this concept of curation has enjoyed a resurgence as it is being applied to content. Given the trillions of megabytes of information that make up the internet, you can only imagine how hard it is to find anything of value out there. Without this problem of course, there wouldn’t be a need for Google or Bing. But with so much data out there, oftentimes a search engine isn’t enough. We need human beings to help us curate content with computers assisting us on the back end.....

Hi Jan,

So true I really couldn't agree with your input more. We need to find ways to add more significant value to everyone involved in curation, for both readers and curators. Can you share this on Internet Billboards today or another scoop of yours.
