Build a transmedia content strategy with presentations

Build a transmedia content strategy with presentations | Storytelling online | Scoop.it

You may have heard the term “transmedia” used to describe a new style of storytelling. With ‘transmedia content sharing’, you can take an existing concept or idea and repurpose it for different media platforms. Want to increase the reach of a recent blog post? Why not create a slidedeck with the key points in your post? Upload it to SlideShare and share it with the SlideShare global community. This is one way that transmedia content sharing can increase your audience and reach.

Drei “One in 8 Million”-Ableger starten in Berlin

Drei “One in 8 Million”-Ableger starten in Berlin | Storytelling online | Scoop.it
Innerhalb von einer Woche haben gleich drei Berliner Nachrichtenwebsites unabhängig voneinander eigene Multimedia-Serien gestartet, in denen die Bewohner Berlins in Form von Audio Slideshows porträtiert werden.

 

Den Anfang machte der Tagesspiegel mit Nahaufnahme Berlin, dann folgten die Berlinfolgen der taz und schließlich die Berliner Morgenpost mit Ich bin ein Berliner. Für alle drei Projekte diente offenbar 1 in 8 Million der New York Times aus dem Jahr 2009 als Vorbild, zumindest Tagesspiegel und Morgenpost beziehen sich darauf. Genauso wie bei der berühmten Vorlage sollen nun regelmäßig neue Porträts von Berlinern hinzukommen.

7 Tips To Maximize Shares of Your Facebook Posts

7 Tips To Maximize Shares of Your Facebook Posts | Storytelling online | Scoop.it

Facebook recently changed the way users interact with content on fan pages: any user, including non-fans, can now post on fan page walls and like/comment/share fan page content. In other words, a Facebook user does not have to first like your fan page before they can interact with your content. This is a good thing!

 

Since this change, the emphasis has shifted slightly from gaining more likes (fans) to increasing the number of shares on each piece of content. When you craft your fan page updates in a manner that naturally inspires fans and their friends and visitors to your page to share with their networks, you set in motion ripples of viral visibility. Basically, free additional exposure...

If Brand Loyalty Is Defined By Engaging Your Niche Audience, Curation Is The Key To Finding Your Voice

If Brand Loyalty Is Defined By Engaging Your Niche Audience, Curation Is The Key To Finding Your Voice | Storytelling online | Scoop.it

The author of this article is huge fan of the Online Journalism Review and after reading one of the latest blog posts"Five more lessons for getting it right, this time around" ( http://bit.ly/vg45DU ), she thought to start a healthy debate and perspective on Niles’ assertion, “Don’t make the syndication mistake.”

 

While she agrees that licensed content should not replace original content creation, the syndication market has rapidly evolved over the past 5 years, creating a new architecture for news and media and providing huge opportunities for publishers and content buyers.

Paul Bradshaw: Collaboration! Data! 2012 will see news outlets turning talk into action | Storytelling online | Scoop.it
The problem with making predictions is that a year is too short a timescale; and five is too long. The secret, I’ve realized, is to actually talk about things you already know are going to happen, and then accept all the glory when they actually do.

Having broken the Magicians’ Circle of journalistic punditry, then, here are the developments I see shaping 2012.

BBC | BBC College of Journalism Blog - 2011, the year journalism changed. But into what? | Storytelling online | Scoop.it
In 2011, journalism changed forever.

We don't know yet what it's changed into. But we know what it's going to change from.

The reasons? Leveson. The implosion of the Press Complaints Commission - a ridiculous, two-decade long experiment in the lunatics running not just the asylum but the lives of all of us who are not inmates. And the gut wrenching revelations of the truth we all kinda already knew: that the British tabloid press was nothing more than a faintly legitimised bunch of hypocritical thugs who'd mastered a business model that turns hate into money.

What Are You Going To Be? A Noise Firehose or a Focusing Lens?

What Are You Going To Be? A Noise Firehose or a Focusing Lens? | Storytelling online | Scoop.it

Seth Godin latest article, entitled "the trap of social media noise", touches on one of the hot issues that boiling under the new content curation tools carnival.

 

Are we creating and leveraging these tools to regurgitate and spit out more noise, or are we working to build tools and to help others understand the value of distilling and making sense of the information wave surrounding us?

As Seth, correctly points out, to lead the way, to challenge new ground and not for the lowest common denominator is a scary proposition.

 

Nonetheless, many a curation tool is approaching the marketplace claiming as key benefits the zero-time-to-publish, frictionless content-gathering powers, super-easy sharing to multiple social networks and seo domination. 

 

If this isn't an invitation to create yet more noisy content, with little or no value attached to it, then I fail to see where is this true invitation and support for making intelligent and truly valuable use of these tools.

 

The fad will soon vanish, as anyone will soon be able to clip, republish (in cool formats) and share in a matter of clicks, without needing a training on it. The ensuing noise tsunami will make it rapidly evident that it is not more content or information that we need, but humans -aided by intelligent tools- that can help others find and make sense of the information and resources out there.

 

"...either be better at pump and dump than anyone else, get your numbers into the millions, outmass those that choose to use mass and always dance at the edge of spam (in which the number of those you offend or turn off forever keep increasing)...

 

or Relentlessly focus.

 

Prune your message and your list and build a reputation that's worth owning and an audience that cares.

 

Only one of these strategies builds an asset of value."

 


If it's tough to read, this is your reading. 10/10

I love this headline too but sometimes I think we might be in a "curation bubble" and although we "get it" lots of people are still trying to figure out how to translate "content curation" into actual business terms they can relate to and use.

The best content curation tools for journalists

The best content curation tools for journalists | Storytelling online | Scoop.it
Content curation helps journalists keep abreast of the latest developments in their beats. It also means that journalists become personal “human filters” for their audiences, offering them more value and insight into what is being posted on the web.

 

Content curation is not new. In fact, this is something journalists have always been doing by organizing information and presenting it to the public. Still, content curation is new. The role of journalists is shifting from gatekeepers to sense-makers and gate-watchers, says German journalist, Internet expert and DW-AKADEMIE trainer Markus Bösch. That’s where curation comes into play.
