Les sons tout go a head

Terri Rice's curator insight, December 11, 2014 9:46 PM

There is a lot of good practices here to implement. I had to read it three times to absorb just half of it. I'm a slow learner, but if you need to put some gas in your Content Curation to boost your numbers of readers then this list will help. I have a few days or weeks ahead of me to put this all into action.

Can't beat that logic: “in order to be seen as a thought leader, you have to share your thoughts.” But how?

Why Content Curation is the Ultimate Compliment to the Creator

Why Content Curation is the Ultimate Compliment to the Creator | Digital Literacy | Scoop.it
Before today, imitation was the greatest form of flattery. If your idea was good enough to be copied, then you were golden. But now, with the state of the web in our lives, this balance is shifting.

Guillaume Decugis's curator insight, December 5, 2013 6:44 PM

Ever since we started Scoop.it, we've always cared a lot about content creators' best interests: by providing a framework, content curation platforms like ours have helped defined ethical content curation over the past few years by making it easy and automatic to link back, attribute, quote sources, extract quotes, etc... 


While some creators have had legitimate questions, it's a real satisfaction for us to see a growing number of bloggers, writers and media companies tell us they're seeing strong positive traffic, credibility or distribution benefits from seeing their work curated by our community. 

Giovanni Sonego's curator insight, December 15, 2013 12:17 PM

Una volta c'erano le raccolte di link, come dmoz, yahoo e altre ancora. Essere presenti in una di queste raccolte era un punto d'onore per qualunque webmaster (o per qualunque autore). 

 

Poi si è attraversata la fase della copia pedissequa. C'era ch prendeva contenuti altrui e li riproponeva senza alcun intervento se non quelli SEO per conquistare un proprio posizionamento. Essere citati in questo modo faceva un po' arrabbiare gli autori che percepivano uno sfruttamento del proprio lavoro.

 

Adesso siamo nella fase della "content curation", cosa molto diversa dalla semplice copia o dalla creazione di un link . Il lavoro di curatore prevede selezione, valutazione e riproposizione di contenuti altrui. E' simile al lavoro dei critici che scelgono e commentano e aiutano i comuni mortali a districarsi tra milioni di informazioni e ci aiutano a scoprire contenuti sempre più pertinenti: libri, ristoranti, film...

Perciò, sostiene l'articolo, se un autore si accorge che un suo contenuto è stato curato non deve prendersela, anzi! Una corretta opera di curation è il massimo complimento che gli si possa rivolgere.
