The digital book is carving a place | The Information Specialist's Scoop | Scoop.it

(Quebec) In a market where it sells for 800 million new books per year in Quebec, the digital book begins to carve out a place. Small for now in Quebec compared to what happens in the United States. But $ 800 million is more than the music market or that of the performing arts.

Content Creation And Content Curation: The New Rules

Content Creation And Content Curation: The New Rules | The Information Specialist's Scoop | Scoop.it

Giuseppe Mauriello: I selected this article written almost two years ago by Nicole Nicolay. It is still applicable and full of highlights. The author analyzed the new situation by introducing informative tips. Below I have excerpted few gems from it:

 

"...***THE REAL ISSUE

Broadcasting what you think may be relevant information again and again, without pre-screening the source and considering the context is a waste of your time.

Most importantly, it begins with content.

...The tools and strategies for sharing good content with your sphere can be learned. But, creating and sharing good content takes skill.

 

 

***SO, WHAT'S NEXT?

 

1) Identify your role in obtaining good, relevant content.

...Are you a content creator a content curator? Or perhaps you’re both.

A content creator is someone who identifies the “needs” within their audience and seeks to help by creating original and highly relevant content.

...

A content curator is someone who sifts through the Web to find and deliver the most relevant content for their intended audience. Sort of a Hunter-Gatherer 2.0!

...

But a thoughtful content curator is more than just a broadcaster of good info. It’s someone who understands their brand and their audience well enough to identify the relevancy of the content, as well as the best context for sharing.

 

2)Recognize the sources that deliver consistently rockin’ content.

...

You need to recognize both local and national sites that can assist your content delivery efforts. And if you ROCK a niche, be sure to recognize those sites as well.

 

3) Organize your sources in a dashboard or reader format for easy access...

 

 

***YOUR CHALLENGE

 

1) Balance the type of content you share.

...The content you share represents you, and your brand. So be sure to really check out what you share with your network.

...Your goal should be to find and share content that REALLY helps your audience…or is REALLY interesting.

...

Your consumers don’t gain anything from a constant stream of commentless Foursquare checkins…and the same could be said about listing tweets that are not framed in a social context. If it doesn’t add value or create conversation….don’t share it!

 

2) Moderate your frequency level and improve your quality of life.

...

The feeling is important…you need to be motivated to deliver consistency with social media. That being said, I’m far more concerned with delivering better quality content than quantity. And so should you if your strategy is to become your network’s trusted advisor.

...

And in order to do that, you need to listen, share, and respond. I see a lot of sharing out there….but far less listening and responding. Social media is about creating opportunities to engage with others. So rather than auto-posting 20 articles a day….try scheduling 3-5 REALLY GOOD shares!!!.."

Hello Susana,
thank you so much for the appreciation!
About your question, you must consider the following points:
- the topic of your choice;
- the quantity/quality of your selected articles that you want to curate;
- but above all, the articles must be "the best of" for your readers.

About publishing...There are daily periods and other weekly, But I don't like to post every article that I found some my keywords about my topic.
Pintolaranja's comment, April 20, 2012 4:45 PM
I agree, I also don't like to publish everything I find.
The thing about doing it weekly is that it also allows me to read them carefully and gather ideas on what to say about them while posting.

Yet I think I had some more engagement from other people while doing daily posts, so I was just wondering whether I should do this differently :)

What Is Corporate Curation? IBM Is Making It | Forbes

This is an excerpt from the article by Steven Rosenbaum and published by Forbes.

 

"It used to be that company communication was all top down.

Today, things are changing fast – as the tools and networks for communication are broken wide open.

 

Within the world of corporate communication, there are new school of thought that say there are the thinkers who are looking to turn this big noisy mess into value for their brands and corporate parents.

 

Ben Edwards the VP Digital Strategy and Development for IBM explains: "“I think there are some emerging roles, potential roles for you know, coms professionals to think about. One of them I think a lot about is this notion of curation.”

 

At IBM, the voice of the company is increasingly coming from the intranet, known internally as W3. W3 has been leading a transformation from professional to user-generated content within IBM.

 

The IBM vision is to embrace, rather than ignore the growing voice and knowledge of their community. “One of the measures that we like to talk about is called ‘Professionally Produced Content versus Employee Published Content’.

 

“We think we have a role in bringing the external perspective into the employee base” says Edwards. That makes IBM a curator as much as a communicator.
