How to Find Great Content? The Ultimate Guide to Content Curation | Transforming small business | Scoop.it

So much content written on the web everyday, that sometimes finding great content to read becomes a challenge. With the onset of different social media tools, discovering awesome content to share with your community is a thrill in itself. Content Curation is unlike Content Marketing where it focuses on amalgamating content from different sources on a particular subject (in this case your favorite topic) and delivering it in an organized fashion. Being a content curator is a great responsibility, studying new points of view on different subjects and sharing it with your community which can provide value to them.
