What Makes a Good Content Curator?

What Makes a Good Content Curator? | #SocialMedia | Scoop.it

Excerpted from the article:
"Sharing good content shows you understand what’s interesting and valuable to your target markets. It will help you increase your followers and establish your credibility.
A good content curator has to sift through tons of content, quickly and efficiently, finding what is both relevant and good quality.

So what does a good content curator look like?
1) Really Long Arms:
You have the expanded reach to know the smaller players with a unique perspective, the powerhouse publishers, and all of the niche players. This allows for a healthy variety of content, with differing perspectives.

2) Super Fast Scanning Eyes:
An efficient content curator knows how to scan an article for legitimacy, value, and relevance to their target market.

3) A Raised Eyebrow:
Each time you come upon something new, your eyebrow is already up, because you’re there to sniff it out to make sure it’ll pass the test. People will lose interest in what you share and you will hurt your credibility if you share content that isn’t high quality.

4) A Belly Full of Hunger:
Good content curators love what they do and are passionate about traversing the wide expanse of the web to find the best content possible."

What has long arms and raised eyebrows?

 

Charlotte L Weitze's curator insight, March 11, 2013 4:43 AM
Robin Good's insight:

 

Lindsey Weintraub at SocialMediaToday has a short but valuable guide to four key traits a good curator really needs to have.

 

From the ability to search and tap into sources that should not be what everyone else is looking at, to the ability to know in and out its chosen niche of interest and its players, the good content curator has an uncanny talent for scanning, selecting and triple-verifying anything potentially interesting before even considering showcasing in its selections.

 

Rightful. Good for anyone just starting out with curation. 7/10

An Ethical Dilemma: Should Social Media Affect Google SEO Ranking?

An Ethical Dilemma: Should Social Media Affect Google SEO Ranking? | #SocialMedia | Scoop.it

Should the introduction of social media in search affect your Google search engine ranking?

"Between Google+ and Microsoft’s integration of Facebook into Bing, it seems that big brands’ product teams believe social search is the way of the future.

Since day one, Google has strived for relevance in its PageRank algorithm. But what is relevant to one person might not matter to another. As a result, Google has attempted to filter and curate the search results we see based on what knowledge it can ascertain from us.

The idea is that the more it knows about us, the better it can serve us. Will the introduction of social media in search improve search, or does it run the risk of making it worse"?

Discover And Create Beautiful Magazine With New Content Curation App Zeen Launched In Beta

Discover And Create Beautiful Magazine With New Content Curation App Zeen Launched In Beta | #SocialMedia | Scoop.it

Excerpted from the article:

"YouTube founders launched a teaser for a new project called Zeen. 

It’s similarly based around the idea of content curation, but whereas Delicious is about tags and bookmarks, Zeen is a more developed version of the ‘social newspaper’ services like Paper.li.

 

After connecting your Twitter, Facebook and Instagram accounts, you get the option to create your first magazine, choosing from a number of template styles and color schemes.

 

You then dive into creating the magazine, without quite so much guidance about what you’re doing or why. Tools along the top of the magazine allow you to add content from the likes of Google searches, YouTube content, Instagram photos, Twitter, RSS feeds (you have to enter the feed URL) – or content you’ve clipped from around the Web using a blookmarklet.

 

Once you’ve added as much content as you like, one piece of content per page, you can publish your magazine to share with others. As yet, it appears that these can’t be viewed by anyone not in the beta...."
