The Secret to Managing Your Social Stream

The Secret to Managing Your Social Stream | Social Networking for Information Professionals | Scoop.it

I might be considered more of a “power user” than some when it comes to social media. There’s many of you who can’t or won’t even fathom having that much information flowing at you all the time. It’s too stressful. I agree, it can be stressful when you think about all of that information at once. But the truth is, there’s a way to manage the information tidal wave that social media can create. Here’s how I do it.

Filter extensively. The only way I really survive being bombarded by information is by filtering. The first thing I do is, I never worry about what I might miss because I’m filtering.

Stop Preserving: Start Curating

Stop Preserving: Start Curating | Social Networking for Information Professionals | Scoop.it

Great post, very good suggestion!

 

We have to stop thinking about how to save data only after it’s no longer needed, as when an author donates her papers to an archive.

 

Instead, we must look for ways to continuously maintain and improve it. In other words, we must stop preserving digital material and start curating it.

 

At first glance, digital preservation seems to promise everything: nearly unlimited storage, ease of access and virtually no cost to making copies. But the practical lessons of digital preservation contradict the notion that bits are eternal.

 

Consider those 5 1/4-inch floppies stockpiled in your basement. When you saved that unpublished manuscript on them, you figured it would be accessible forever. But when was the last time you saw a floppy drive?

Social networking sites and our lives | Pew Internet & American Life Project

Questions have been raised about the social impact of widespread use of social networking sites (SNS) like Facebook, LinkedIn, MySpace, and Twitter. Do these technologies isolate people and truncate their relationships? Or are there benefits associated with being connected to others in this way? The Pew Research Center’s Internet & American Life Project decided to examine SNS in a survey that explored people’s overall social networks and how use of these technologies is related to trust, tolerance, social support, and community and political engagement.  

The findings presented here paint a rich and complex picture of the role that digital technology plays in people’s social worlds. Wherever possible, we seek to disentangle whether people’s varying social behaviors and attitudes are related to the different ways they use social networking sites, or to other relevant demographic characteristics, such as age, gender and social class.

The Content Strategist as Digital Curator

The Content Strategist as Digital Curator | Social Networking for Information Professionals | Scoop.it

The term “curate” is the interactive world’s new buzzword. During content creation and governance discussions, client pitches and creative brainstorms, I've watched this word gain traction at almost warp speed. As a transplant from museums and libraries into interactive media, I can't help but ask what is it about this word that deserves redefinition for the web?

Curation has a distinguished history in cultural institutions. In galleries and museums, curators use judgment and a refined sense of style to select and arrange art to create a narrative, evoke a response, and communicate a message. As the digital landscape becomes increasingly complex, and as businesses become ever more comfortable using the web to bring their product and audience closer, the techniques and principles of museum curatorship can inform how we create online experiences—particularly when we approach content.....

great read with good explanation and tips. though I realize all social media can be used for curating purposes commercial or not, I dig platforms like scoop.it for the emphasis on content management instead of personal networks or digital 'personas'.

Robin Good interviewed on curation by Howard Rheingold

Very nice interview that covers many aspects of curation: why, what to expect, how, etc... Knowing how to use social media involves knowing how to uncover the best information and then customise the information flow. This can be personal, for an organisation, for research, for promotion. This facet of information curation is an issue that information professionals need to understand and become proficient in.

Foursquare, the most popular of a new class of "geo-social" websites, is included on this year’s iteration of the UMass-Dartmouth study almost as an afterthought. Only 20 percent of campuses have an institutional presence on Foursquare. But those that are using it believe the two-year-old Foursquare could soon emerge as a more powerful — and tangible — tool for engaging with students.
