Curation for Content Marketing: Sharing Is Not Enough You Need a Content Hub | SteveB's Social Learning Scoop |

Really interesting to read. Will have to focus more on my content curation in the future. 

Caroline Baldeyrou's curator insight, June 30, 12:58 AM

Très bon article du fondateur de Scoop It, qui explique pourquoi la curation sur Twitter (= "juste" partager des liens en moins de 140 caractères) ne suffit pas pour un content marketer, et pourquoi il faut créer son propre "hub de contenus". Une démonstration logique et imparable, à appliquer concrètement dès maintenant !

This article highlights the declining benefits of social media marketing efforts on Facebook and explains why quality and engagement are key to remaining visible online

Dillon Thomas's curator insight, February 1, 8:25 AM



As I began this process of building my "brand" .. creating my online image and my professional presentation, I had a lot to figure out.  I created my first website, facebook and Linked In account.  I made the decision to "market" myself a Lite Feet dancer, if you read my bio it is one of the accomplishments in my life for which I am very proud.  The problem there was no single source of information of LITE FEET DANCE.   My introduction to Scoop It was perfect timing, it gave me an opportunity to create a LITE FEET SCOOP -- I had been dancing since I was 14 and I had come to know all the founders and the main Lite Feet websites, the history of Lite Feet dance,  the multitude of YouTube Channels, websites, facebook pages and Lite Feet Sound Cloud accounts, and I felt a great responsibility to curate and create the first and only LITE FEET SCOOP.  Creating this scoop gave me a link to provide as a reference to my own "LIte Feet Dancer" identity but also was a unique opportunity to curate, what I believe to be, an important, relevent and for the most part unnoticed dance phenom and YouTube Sensation that is  Lite Feet Dance.  My efforts to high lite the incredible talent of these young dancers has been an honor and I will continue to add to scoop as new content becomes available.

I then created several other relevent scoops for my story, and I created them in the hopes that sharing my journey would hopefully help others with similar journeys.

SCOOPS --  I began using Scoop when I was defining myself a LITE FEET DANCER.  There was no single source of info about Lite Feet dance, a NYC Born Battle dance phenom and YouTube Sensation.  I created LITE FEET SCOOP TO reference for my own resume but also to provide anyone interested a link to the multitude of YOUTUBE Channels, Sound Cloud and personal sites dedicated to this unique art form and the talented dancers who participate.

Collector or Curator? Becoming a Social Connoisseur

Collector or Curator? Becoming a Social Connoisseur | SteveB's Social Learning Scoop |
It used to be that you were a wine or art collector to be considered a connoisseur. These curators of their personal taste and beauty would search for pieces that fit a collection they would be proud

I selected this article by Bryan Kramer because it absolutely speaks to me and many of you!

Today’s modern day curator is a curator of knowledge. We have come to rely on the best to tell us what is good and what isn’t. Their history of shares heightens their status in some cases to social connoisseur, a title not easily earned.

Bryan asks this question: Have you ever read something that made you stop and think... and you saved it? You're a collector. The question is, how do you move from collector, to connoisseur?

There are 5 great takeaways in this piece......

Here's what caught my attention:

Understand the Shelf Life - News will always serve a purpose, but today’s news only last seconds. To build a story around something that drives a different perspective is what drives new opinions, conversations and communities. What you share reflects on your beliefs, so add something that lasts longer than a retweet.

Thought provoking article.

I had to stop and read "Goosebumps" twice, the down-to-earth notion of human touch mixed with quality content, is something to ponder and keep trying.

Here's an example of what you'll find in these articles: 


When you use curation to build trust and establish your reputation

you have to have a well defined strategy by asking questions like this:


**How does your curation strengthen and communicate your brand or profile?


**How does it generate traffic for your resources and services both physical and virtual?


**How does it extend beyond your sphere of influence with key stake holders and decision makers?
