Top 4 tools to share engaging content on your social media accounts

Top 4 tools to share engaging content on your social media accounts | The Social Web | Scoop.it

There are two ways in which you can come up with new content: you either create it or you curate it (ideally, you do both). The content that you create, curate and share with your audience should be relevant to your business.

 

You should identify topics that resonate with your followers and share content that will help your audience relate to your business. While content creation is a more time-intensive process, content curation need not be so.

 

There are several content curation tools that help you discover interesting and unique content that can help keep your social media pages buzzing with activity. Here are four such tools that you can use to share engaging content on social media....

Robin Good's curator insight, April 27, 2015 3:43 AM



PressForward is a free open-source, WordPress plugin for curating most any type of content within the standard WordPress publishing workflow.

PressForward is in fact a full-fledged RSS feed reader and aggregator which can capture content coming from any site while allowing full editing and curation abilities. It is an ideal tool for news curators wanting to have a news gathering and discovery tool integrated into their standard publishing and editing environment.


PressForward is designed to be used by multiple users, like in a distributed newsroom, where several individuals or even a small community suggest and submit and others edit, approve and post selected content.

To gather content PressForward offers a standard bookmarklet to capture any content you find on the web, and can also import OPML files to allow you to aggregate and filter all of your favorite RSS feeds. 


Last but not least, PressForward keeps close tabs on the sources you utilise, by automatically creating attribution links for any content you curate and allowing you to have your posts optionally auto-redirect to the original source. 


Free to use.

Curate To Educate: From Online Courses to Full Learning Programs

Curate To Educate: From Online Courses to Full Learning Programs | The Social Web | Scoop.it

Via Robin Good
Stephen Dale's insight:

A couple of great finds from master Curator Robin Good. As he notes

 

"This is an interesting trend as in the past most tools to deliver educational content relied on the author creating and posting only his own materials. The fact that you can now include valuable content published by others opens up the gates both for the curation of lots of existing content into useful learning courses as well as for the issues of whether and how to compensate curated content from others"

Filomena Gomes's curator insight, April 18, 2015 9:57 AM
Robin Good's insight:

 

New interesting tools make it possible to create online courses and full online learning programs, by drastically simplifying the design process while providing simple tools to curate and bring together valuable existing content already published online.

 

The first I'd like to bring to your attention is Classmill, which makes it very easy to create online courses by providing a very simple and intuitive interface and allowing the author to add with ease his own texts, as well as images, links and video clips coming from elsewhere on the web. Anyone can publish an online course and make it visible to everyone. Only those who register and join in can see the full contents and can participate in the integrated discussion area for the course.

 

The second one is Learnyst, which goes one step beyond Classmill by facilitating the creation of a full online school with multiple courses and the ability to charge for selected ones. 

 

Both tools are extremely easy to use, and allow the assembly of existing materials, whether owned or produced by others. 

 

This is an interesting trend as in the past most tools to deliver educational content relied on the author creating and posting only his own materials. The fact that you now can easily include valuable content published by others opens up the gates both for the curation of lots of existing content into useful learning courses as well as for the issue of whether and how to compensate curated content from others. 

 

This economic issue though, does not preclude tons of free high-quality content to be re-used and showcased in many new free learning courses and it provides those who want to learn with even more non-commercial alternatives to master their favorite topics. 

 

Takeaway: You are going to see more of these tools and more subject-matter experts create valuable learning resources by bringing together key relevant content produced by others while adding tangible value, perspective and context.

If you have a strong passion or expertise it's time to start thinking about building your own online school. 

 

 

Check out these two tools:

- Learnyst

- Classmill

 

Other curation tools for learning moving in the same direction:

- Gibbon

- Learnist

- Educrate

After installation, Chrome users are able to save bookmarks with a click, organise them and use Google’s search technology to find bookmarks that got buried deeply in their collections. The extension also eliminates the need for manual organisation, if you choose, as it’s smart enough to organise bookmarks into automatically generated categories based on what you’ve saved.


The most noticeable aspect to Google’s Bookmark Manager is the updated interface. No Longer a boring list of links, accessing the “Bookmarks Manager” from Chrome’s “Bookmark” menu bring up square thumbnails of your saved links, which include pictures and descriptions .

Future Content Filters Shall Be User-Driven and Interchangeable

Future Content Filters Shall Be User-Driven and Interchangeable | The Social Web | Scoop.it

Via Robin Good
Stephen Dale's insight:
Rangaswami makes his own case for why filters matter:
soon, everything and everyone will be connectedthat includes people, devices, creatures, inanimate objects, even concepts (like a tweet or a theme)at the same time, the cost of sensors and actuators is dropping at least as fast as compute and storageso that means everything and everyone can now publish status and alerts of pretty much anythingthere’s the potential for a whole lotta publishing to happenwhich in turn means it’s firehose timeso we need filterswhich is why the stream/filter/drain approach is becoming more common

 

Filters are important when drinking from the Internet firehose!

more...
Robin Good's curator insight, April 23, 2014 2:25 PM



JP Rangaswami highlights and defines seven key principles for effective filtering in this age of excessive information. 


Two of them are of particular important to the future of information access as they may have a very deep impact on society and on our ability to be in control of how to select and find what is relevant for us.


1. Filters, of whatever kind, should be user-driven and not publisher-driven. 


2. Filters should be interchangeable, exchangeable, even tradeable


"What we don’t know is how to solve a much bigger problem: what to do when there are filters at publisher level. Once you allow this, the first thing that happens is that an entry point is created for bad actors to impose some form of censorship.


In some cases it will be governments, sometimes overtly, sometimes covertly; at other times it will be traditional forces of the media; it may be generals of the army or captains of industry.


The nature of the bad actor is irrelevant; what matters is that a back door has been created, one that can be used to suppress reports about a particular event/location/topic/person."

Zoekmachines - en Google - voorop gaan de context van zoektermen steeds beter begrijpen, zodat gebruikers betere en op hun situatie (plek, voorkeuren) toegespitste resultaten krijgen. Omdat het daarbij om de zogeheten 'big data' draait, is onder meer het gebruik van Google+ belangrijk voor Google.

Google has just introduced "Collections", for Google+, a new service which allows any Google+ user to group his posts by topic and to create public, shareable collections of his favorite links, articles, videos and images.

 

To use Google Collections, simply go to your G+ profile page and then select "Collections" on the drop down menu appearing on the top left part of the page.

 

"Each collection can be shared publicly, privately, or with a custom set of people. Once you create your first collection, your profile will display a new tab where other people can find and follow your collections."

 

You can either create new posts containing whatever type of content inside a collection, or assign an existing, published post to a collection you have just created.

 

You can create as many collections as you like.

 

Google+ Collections is available on the web and on Android (iOS coming later).

 

 

My comment: Google+ Collections adds opportunity for creating additional value to G+ users by letting interests drive community engagement. This is a feature that sooner or later any social network will offer.

Robin Good's curator insight, April 26, 2015 12:40 PM



Topik.in is a new news curation app, similar in many ways to a much simplified version of Scoop.it. With a dedicated bookmarklet you can basically curate and personalise any content you find online and post it to a dedicated *virtual board* on Topik.in


There's none of the advanced backend content discovery engine features, nor the powerful embedding, domain name mapping, social sharing and publishing options that Scoop.it offers, but Topik.in is also much simpler and for anyone who would find Scoop.it too complex or feature-rich for his initial needs, it could be a potential starting point.


Posts appear in a layout much similar to Scoop.it two-column magazine vertical layout. Content can be easily shared on all major social channels, and when a reader clicks on a curated post, the full original content page loads up under a Topik.in frame that maintains context and reference to the original curated post.


It is possible to follow other boards and to repost content posted by others. During Beta each user can create up to 8 curated boards on different topics.


Good for anyone wanting to get his feet wet with news curation without needing to get a more complex tool and without needing to spend anything. 


English and Spanish languages supported.


Free to use.

Media and technology futurist Gerd Leonhard outlines his vision of the future of work given the many profound changes shaping the planet during the coming decades.


Key highlights: 


  1. We will be able to offload tedious, repetitive work to computers and robots who will replace rapidly many of our present jobs

  2. At the same time entirely new jobs will be created -
    for example:
    Digital Curation 
    Social Engineering
    Artificial Intelligence Designers 

  3. We are moving to right-brain work-jobs - that is: storytelling, emotions, creativity and imagination, negotiation 

  4. Education prepares us by having us learn things that we may need later. But in most cases we don't need those things but we rather need to know how to learn new things.

  5. More craftmanship-type of jobs like cooks, makers, hackers, coders, will fluorish as computers-machines cannot replicate such skills (yet)

Very interesting video, but regarding point 3. that "We are moving to right-brain work-jobs" I must note there are no "right-brain" jobs. This left-right brain distinction is oversimplified neuromyth.

 

“The latest findings from the real neuroscience of creativity suggest that the right brain/left brain distinction does not offer us the full picture of how creativity is implemented in the brain.* Creativity does not involve a single brain region or single side of the brain.” (http://t.co/3l5nM7IsEi)

At the same time entirely new jobs will be created - for example:
Digital Curation 
Social Engineering
Artificial Intelligence Designers 

We are moving to right-brain work-jobs - that is: storytelling, emotions, creativity and imagination, negotiation 

Education prepares us by having us learn things that we may need later. But in most cases we don't need those things but we rather need to know how to learn new things.

More craftmanship-type of jobs like cooks, makers, hackers, coders, will fluorish as computers-machines cannot replicate such skills (yet)

Pluto.tv is a new web service which curates the best video clips available online by organizing content coming from YouTube and many other video sharing sites into thematic programs of 30 minutes each.


The interface is very similar to the one utilized by program guide viewers on standard cable TV.


Pluto.tv offers already more than 100 thematic video channels all curated by human beings.


My comment: An effective approach to surface great video content 

while delivering it in a familiar and consumable format.


 Available also as an app for iOS and Android.


Free to use.

Curate Your Own Wiki-Guide with the Wikipedia Book Create Tool

Help:Books - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

There are almost no limits when creating books from Wikipedia content. A good book focuses on a certain topic and covers it as well as possible. A meaningful title helps other users to have the correct expectation regarding the content of a book.

Stephen Dale's insight:

I can't add much to what Robin Good has already said, though I did explain the same process when I created a travel book for our holiday in the Amazon last year. Why not create a book for your next holiday destination?

Robin Good's insight:

 

 

Few people know that it is actually possible to curate Wikipedia content into custom print books or PDF / OpenDocument ebooks that contain exactly the content you want in the order you specify.

 

Once you are logged into Wikipedia you simply activate the Book Creator Tool and then, from that moment on, everytime you visit a Wikipedia page you can click and add it to your curated Wiki-Book.

 

There is also a dedicated wiki page where you can manage the pages you have collected and you can reorganized and sort them any way you want, eliminating the pages you don't need.

 

Unfortunately there is no integrated way to edit and further customize the content of those pages for your own use.

 

PDF versions are freely downloadable by anyone, print book versions are paid.

 

N.B.: The price for print books depends on the number of pages, starting with US$ 7.90 for books up to 100 pages. 10% of the gross sales price goes to the Wikimedia Foundation. Books are perfect bound, printed in the dimensions 8.5 inch x 5.5 inch (216 mm x 140 mm) and contain a table of contents, your chapters and articles, licensing information next to an index.

It's worth keeping in mind that some 'publishers' try to sell books based entirely on Wikipedia content.

The Future Of Content Curation Tools - Part II

The Future Of Content Curation Tools - Part II | The Social Web | Scoop.it
In the coming months and years, I expect content curation tools are going to play a very important role in many different fields.

Via Robin Good
Stephen Dale's insight:

A useful summary of the current shortcomings in content curation tools and services, and what we features and innovations we might see in this developing market. From the author:

 

"In the near future it is likely that new content curation tools will provide more dedicated features for specific application and uses while becoming more aware of user needs that so far have not been taken into serious consideration (attribution, archiving, monetizing).

While large content curation hubs and platforms are likely to start realizing that their best value yet to be extracted is in the content being curated by their users, new tools will likely target more specific and professional uses rather than the general public needing simply to collect and repost content on their blog or social media channel."

Why Content Curation Is Disruptive and A Very Powerful Tool Done Right

I've said this before, and will repeat...Contet Curation is not just for the Marketeers. I think it is as yet a vastly untapped skill/resource/process for Enterprise information professionals (IM/KM) in delivering themed, value--added and decision-ready content for their internal customers. #kmers #curation

janlgordon's curator insight, November 13, 2013 12:50 PM

This thought-provoking piece was written by Marty Smith who is one of our top scoopers here who knows what he's talking about when it comes to curation and why it is disruptive in this marketplace.


Marty gives you some great tips on how to use Scoopit to evaluate what works and what doesn't with your audience and more....


Marty Smith:




"When everyone is doing something as complicated as content marketing quality goes down. My ratios used to be about 50% curation to 50% creation. we can afford to lower creation now for two reasons:


  • An archive of almost a million words published across 4 blogs.
  • With so many people creating so much POOR content, creating LESS and making it BETTER is disruptive.
  • This “less and better” is  Curatti’s Editors of Chaos mission.


Snippet Curation with a powerful tool like Scoop.it moves your Internet marketing away from the pack. The pack is creating content faster and faster without a full understanding of what works


Most content marketers add NOISE in the hope screaming louder will make content stand out. It never does.

Flipboard (an App available for iOS and Android) is my favourite app for consuming and sharing inrormation. Relevence is improved by being able to choose the topics you want to follow, and liking or favouriting specific articles.

 

The recent addition of the Flipboard Editort now enables you to create and curate your own magazine, which you can share with others, or keep simply as a place for bookmarking.

The More You Automate, The Less You Curate: Sense-Making Requires Manual Effort

The More You Automate, The Less You Curate: Sense-Making Requires Manual Effort | The Social Web | Scoop.it

Via Robin Good
Stephen Dale's insight:

I can understand where Harold Jarche is coming from on this piece, but the missing element for me is THE PURPOSE of your curation activity. Frictionless curation is perfectly sensible of it's for your own purpose - e.g. creating collections of useful content for learning or research. It's different if you are curating for the purpose of adding insight or value for others, in which case the 'sensing and sharing' becomes more relevant.
