The flip-a-holic's ultimate guide to subscribing, curating and sharing using Flipboard

The flip-a-holic's ultimate guide to subscribing, curating and sharing using Flipboard | Social Networker | Scoop.it
I confess!  I'm a Flipboard flip-a-holic! I wasn't always this way.  I originally hated Flipbaord and found the magazine style layout cluttered. Life has changed and Flipboard is now the most used ...
John Thomas's insight:

Flipboard, as you probably already know, is a great app (available on iOS and Android) which not only allows you to read and keep yourself updated on your favorite topics in a fresh and highly visual experience, but, since recently, it also offers you the ability to become a "curator" of whatever topic you are into.

Your job is simply to pick great stuff you stumble upon and to save it into the appropriate magazine you have created. It's not conceptually much different than clicking a Facebook "like" button and adding your comment, but we the added option of generating in the meanwhile a beautifully laid out digital magazine.

The secret here, to do something that it is of some value, it is to choose on a very specific "theme/topic" and to get picky about what you choose to publish in your magazine(s).

In this useful article Sue Waters collects and curates some of the best tips, video tutorials and techniques to make the best of your Flipboard curation experience in a step-by-step guide.

With the influence that social media has in the 21st century, it is important to understand the benefits and negative aspects that it can bring upon education. In regards to positive influences, it allows students to be able to contact teachers with ease (not so much in primary education, but at university level), and allows the sharing of information to be easily accessed. However some negative aspects could include harassment and safety or this information being exploited. It's important for students to grow up with knowledge around the use of ICTs and the use of social media but more importantly to use it properly.

Content Curation for Content Marketers: Six Basic Ways To Curate Other People Stories

Content Curation for Content Marketers: Six Basic Ways To Curate Other People Stories | Social Networker | Scoop.it

 

 


Via Robin Good
John Thomas's insight:

Pawan Deshpande, founder and CEO of Curata, has just published an article that provides some very useful guidelines to content marketers interested in improving their basic content curation skills.

 

The article provides six alternative approaches to curating content, from simple ones like quoting and retitling, to more advanced ones like parallelizing, storyboarding and summarizing.

 

The context provided in this article circles around three key factors:

Quantity of effortSEO valueAdded value

so that you can compare, among the alternative curation approaches presented, the ones that better match your own needs.

 

But, beware. Though content marketing experts have you believe that saving time, seo impact and traffic size are key variables to go after, I remain of the impression that true "added value" provides order of magnitude greater benefits than the other two combined. 

 

In other words, to rank and evaluate the value of a curation approach versus another, I would ask: Does the curation produced help other people make better sense of a topic? Does it allow for others to learn about an issue without having to juggle and research tens of dubious resources? Does it save the reader time in learning about the topic he's interested in while providing him with all the needed info?

 

Having said this, I deem this article particularly useful for content marketers getting interested in content curation, and in learning which approaches they can adopt, besides reposting and sharing the best content they can find, to improve their "value added" propositions.

 

 

Useful. Resourceful. 7/10

Pawan Deshpande, fundador y CEO de Curata, nos describe en este artículo 6 pautas de cómo comentar los contenidos curados, para mejorar nuestras habilidades de “curatas”

 

Valora las pautas a seguir en estos tres aspectos:

  • En el esfuerzo del curador del contenido realizado.
  • En el valor del posicionamiento de la curación, respecto al SEO
  • En el valor de la calidad de la aportación del curador del contenidos


Totalmente de acuerdo con el comentario de Robin Good, en que es más importante la calidad de la aportación de valor aportado “valor añadido” por el curador vs. los otros dos aspectos.  

 

Este “valor añadido” es el que a la larga sabrán valorar tus seguidores y también los buscadores como Google

 

Un gran artículo de Pawan Deshpande, felicitaciones por tu aportación y reflexiones.

Content Curation In the Content Marketing Mix In 2014

Excerpt from the last article published by Heidi Cohen on her blog:
"Content marketing in 2014 requires a content curation component and related strategy.

According to Google’s Zero Moment of Truth (ZMOT), buyers check an average of 10.4 sources when they research a purchase. This translates to providing lots of information targeted at answering their specific purchase related questions.
The way to meet this need effectively is to add content curation into the content marketing mix.

Content curation in the content marketing mix
To create an effective content offering, marketers use a mix of content strategies according to 2014 research by Curata.

65% of content is created.25% of content is curated.10% of content is syndicated.


Curated content distributed
When it comes to distributing curated content, marketers focus on 3 key strategies according to Curata’s data.

Over 80% share on social media. 

Actionable Content Marketing Tip: Share content created by your customers such as photographs of your product and reviews.

 

Over 60% share on blogs.

Actionable Content Marketing Tip: Develop blog posts based on curated articles and opinions such as round up posts.

Over 50% share via email newsletters.

Actionable Content Marketing Tip: Make sure you highlight content you created that’s appeared on other platforms such as guest blog posts.

Curation timing
If content curation is an integral part of your social media strategy, it’s important to be present and share regularly across social media platforms. This is particularly important for social signals that influence search results.
Actionable Content Marketing Tip: Determine what level of presence you need on various social media platforms and how much content you need to distribute to be competitive..."

A previous report from Forrester Research established Search Engine Optimization (SEO) as the most important source of targeted traffic business owners can have for their websites, with organic web search or natural search sitting at the top of traffic sources. Digital marketers expect this trend to persist and would grow at a steady rate despite the proliferation and growing popularity of other traffic sources like social networks and other online or offline channels.

The following infographic describes some of the most anticipated SEO trends for the new year.

Why Content Curation and Crowdsourcing Will Change Everything

Why Content Curation and Crowdsourcing Will Change Everything | Social Networker | Scoop.it

From the original article by Tom George on his "Internet Billboards".
Here are some interesting excerpts from the post about content curation.
"After having spent the better part of four years curating content from renowned bloggers, journalists and authors as well as building a platform here on Internet Billboards, which has evolved into a wonderful community of content curator’s.

Here is my definition of content curation. A content curator is someone who finds, organizes, presents and shares valuable information (content) in many forms, on a specific topic, in a way that provides special context and or a unique engagement with his or her readers. In actuality when done correctly, over time it positions the curator as an expert in his or her respective field and defines their reputation as a thought leader.

A good curator will mix curation with his or her own original content, to give interpretations for the express purpose of allowing others to form their own conclusions.
...
Why curation and crowdsourcing will and should become more important to you. I will give you ten reasons.
1. There is just too much content;
2. Social Sites Are Full Of Spam;
3. Privacy concerns with big data;
4. Limiting risk and using many minds;
5. Technology must assist us and help us not hinder us;
6. People Will recognize the need to build meaningful relationships;
7. Information will flow freely;
8. Trust and authority will be the new currency;
9. Curation helps you establish relationships with thought leaders;
10. Crowd Sourcing can make things possible..."

Just trying to keep your head around all of the different platforms, how to approach them and, of course, how to design for them can be a full time job.

Social media has proven itself as a crucial component of a brand’s marketing mix, but with the many different platforms, it can be very difficult to put forth a consistent brand image online.

Amazon Collections

Amazon Collections | Social Networker | Scoop.it

John Thomas's insight:

Amazon has made available to everyone a new Pinterest-like facility that allows you to easily collect and organize into separate sets, Amazon product items that you are interested into or want to recommend to others. To add a product to anyone of your Amazon collections you only need to click on the "+ Add to Collection" button that appears below the product on the left side of any Amazon page. (See the button at the bottom of this Amazon page screenshot here: https://dl-web.dropbox.com/spa/782adzfe036gp2y/eowjyl6s.jpg - not all products pages sport yet this button as this is a new feature). A dedicated bookmarklet is also available which makes it a breeze to also add products that do not sport yet the "+ Add to Collection" button. Collected items and collections can be easily shared on Facebook and Twitter or via email. Like on Pinterest, Amazon Collections allows you to comment any of the items you post, to follow other "collectors" (not individual boards), to like items and to repost any them into another collection. You can decide whether a collection is public or private and you can also easily rename or delete any collection created. My comments: Excellent and long due upgraded version of the Wish List (which remains available and also allows creation of product lists) No ability to embed collections elsewehere. No ability to re-arrange items in a collection. Fresh out of the gate, this feature may provide lots of economic benefits and insight to Amazon and a more effective way for users to find relevant and related products via their trusted curators and guides. Key differences with Wish Lists: Visual layout and social features are the key differentiators. The display of Collections is very much like a Pinterest like collection while a Wish List offers a vertical linear list mode or a text-only compact alterative. In addition, Amazon Collections allow for the collector to provide a comment / description to any product listed, to like and report other collectors' items, and to easily share these on FB and Twitter. Free to use. See what others are collecting here: http://www.amazon.com/gp/river
