Curation, Amplification, Journalism in 2012

"The role of journalists will evolve towards fact checking and curation: rather than originate stories, they can now tap in social media powered citizen journalists and become effective curators."

"Stronger emphasis needs to be put on distribution and post-production: How stories will look, live and evolve after they are publish is important."

What Makes A Great Curator Great? High-Value Curation vs. Generic Republishing

Today content curation is sold, promoted and marketed as the latest and trendiest approach to content production, SEO visibility, reputation and traffic building. But is it really so? (Written and curated by Robin Good, Nov 4, the early days of scoop.it)

  1. Curation can be effective only as much as it effectively provides a quality filtering mechanism that can replace my need to consult multiple sources.
  2. Shallow curation efforts, where the main goal is to republish selected content with the minimum effort and time, are going to be effective only for the very short term.
  3. Curation is an effective means to build a strong relationship with a niche audience of passionate people to engage, not a marketing strategy that caters to gain a broad audience of readers by virtue of quantity and breadth.
  4. The key element that makes curation work is the competence and focus of the curator and of the topic he has selected. Repeated efforts to create curated channels that mix and match broad and highly competitive topics are bound to see a very short life.
