Content Curation: Truths, Threats, Motivations and Opportunities

Content Curation: Truths, Threats, Motivations and Opportunities | The Third Order of Information | Scoop.it

This is a cross-post from Altimeter Group Researcher Jaimy Szymanski. I excerpted from the article:

 

"Curation is taking over the digital content scene. With related applications and platforms multiplying, the act of collecting and sharing content has become second nature for most of us.

 

When talking data it’s far simpler to look at all the content out there and curate, rather than analyze the gaps and create new, original content to fill them.


This brings up some unnerving questions as well:
- With curation on the rise, what effect will this have on the creation of new, interesting, valuable and thought-provoking content online?
- When (if at all) will curated content be accepted as unique content?
- What happens when curators far outnumber creators?

 

But, upon taking a closer look behind the why of curation, the researcher found potential value pulling some data from Trendstream.

 

***Motivations Behind Content Curation and Sharing:

1) Motivations behind curation are positive: to share a good experience, to help consumer pick out good product and to encourage company improvement.

 

2) Millennials share content focused on “self.” As generations get older, secondary motivation shifts to a bigger picture though, to helping consumers. Add to that the fact that many have grown up recognizing technology as a platform for both utility and self-expression or promotion.

 

3) Fostering expertise is among lowest motivations. I predict that curated content will increasingly be more accepted as “original” content over time, as long as it contains some unique insight or alteration.

 

***Where Curation Opportunities Lie:

Curation will prove to be a very positive trend for marketers who are looking to affect their audience via way of content marketing.

It’s quite possible that content curators will also begin to be recognized as influencers in their respective industries, and organizations will treat them as such.

 

I’ll end with a few final thoughts: 

1) The amount of content curated will rise and fall in cycles, as shared content depends on original content creation to survive.
2) Organizations will weave curation into their content strategies, at the very least to ensure sharing of their content is as simple as possible for consumers.
3) Application development – both web-based and mobile – will continue to support the curation trend."

Clip, Collect and Organize Anything That Interests You: Clipix

Clip, Collect and Organize Anything That Interests You: Clipix | The Third Order of Information | Scoop.it

Robin Good: Clipix is a Pinterest-like clipping and collection app which allows you to capture images and content from any web page and to organize it in custom visual boards.

One key feature that differentiates Clipix from Pinterest (though it is likely that Pinterest will add this feature soon as well) is the ability to organize together multiple sets into a "multiboard".

 

Other key features include a "Price Drop Alert" which emails you when the price of one of the commercial products you have clipped drops and 

"...For example you might have a multiboard that you call “Recipe Ideas” and inside you’d have 3 clipboards: Baking Recipes, Soup Recipes, and Health Recipes.

 

The easiest way to create a multiboard is by dragging one clipboard from the icon in the lower right-hand corner into another clipboard."

Sounds cool, if only Pinterest didn't exist already (or zillions of other similar websites for that matter). thanks for curating and sharing though.
Robin Good's comment, July 15, 2012 3:26 AM
Thank you Lelapin. The world is beautiful because it is varied. Pinterest will soon lose its "mojo" to many of these more specialized clones, which will provide more immediate value to those specifically interested in that specific area or application. I may be wrong but this is what I expect to happen.

Qwiki Launches Its New Interactive Storytelling And Publishing Platform For Content Creators And Curators

Qwiki Launches Its New Interactive Storytelling And Publishing Platform For Content Creators And Curators | The Third Order of Information | Scoop.it

Excerpted from article:

"Qwiki, the start-up known for creating automated multimedia presentations, is launching a new media format that allows publishers, bloggers, web personalities and others to create 60-second video stories that are embedded with other videos, images, maps and links.

 

It’s like an interactive video slideshow that lets users click on other content throughout a narrated story, so they can choose how deep they want to experience the content.

 

The service goes into private testing today with some early users and is expected to open to the public in a couple of weeks.

 

Users can put together a Qwiki by arranging images, videos and maps and other content into six frames. Each frame can be further edited with a caption and embedded with more images, Tweets, maps and links taken from sources such as YouTube, Flickr, Google Maps and other sources including their personal content.

When the media content is laid down, a user records a 60-second narration for the story with the option of appearing in a small window throughout the Qwiki. The creator decides when to advance each frame.

 

Imbruce, Founder and CEO, said:

"there are many more features to be added that could make Qwiki even more attractive to its creators and users.

 

Right now, creators can only tell a 60-second story. But with the ability to add more content, it could really be the starting point for a bigger story. I think over time, Qwiki might be better served by allowing people the option to make videos a little longer.

 

New online tools, such as Pinterest, are already showing us that self-expression and curation are now very popular. I think it’s logical that a simple tool for mixing video, images and online content could also attract an audience..."

You see, I believe that while today’s digital natives have a affinity for using digital tools… they often do not have the life experiences to utilize these tools to their greatest potential. One example I would like to present to you today is the use of Google as a search engine.

Are You A Content Curator? 5 Best Practices For Content Curation

Are You A Content Curator? 5 Best Practices For Content Curation | The Third Order of Information | Scoop.it

This is an article by Steven Rosenbaum and published by Mashable. Excerpted from it:

 

"Good content curation isn’t as simple as pushing a share button. 

If you’re a curator here are five best practices to consider.

 

1. Be Part of the Content Ecosystem:

Be part of the content ecosystem, not just a re-packager of it. 

Created, contributed, and collected — the three ‘c’s is a strong content mix that has a measurable impact. Why? Because your visitors don’t want to hunt around the web for related material. Once they find a quality, curated collection, they’ll stay for related offerings.

 

2. Follow a Schedule:

Audiences expect some regularity, and they’ll reward you for it. 

Consistency and regularity will also bring you new users, and help you grow a loyal base of members who appreciate your work.

 

3. Embrace Multiple Platforms:

Today content consumers get their information on the platform of their choosing. That means you should consider posting short bursts on Tumblr, images on Pinterest, video on YouTube, and community conversations on Facebook.

 

4. Engage and Participate:

Having a voice as a curator means more than creating and curating your own work. Make sure you’re giving back by reading others and commenting on their posts.

To recommend material that you really think merits their attention.

 

5. Share. Don’t Steal:

Take the time to give attribution, link backs, and credit. The sharing economy works because we’re each sharing our audiences, and providing the value of our endorsements.

The important thing to realize is that we’re increasingly living in a world of information overload. So when people choose to listen to you it’s because you’re able to separate signal from noise. You provide a clear, contextually relevant voice within the topic or topics that you create and curate."

Content Creation And Content Curation: The New Rules

Content Creation And Content Curation: The New Rules | The Third Order of Information | 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 :)
