"With Twitter being a source of news for so many people, a new feature it’s testing that essentially curates the content behind the topic seems like a logical fit. “Embedded on these websites” is the header for the new functionality that is showing links to articles online that have embedded the tweet.

"Embedded tweets allow users to insert interactive tweets within their articles that feature media like photos and video, show real-time retweets and favorites, and give the ability to engage with the tweet right within the article..."

Robin Good's curator insight, June 26, 2013 7:51 AM



In this white paper authored by Jeonghyun Kim, Edward Warga, William Moen and entitled "Competencies Required for Digital Curation: An Analysis of Job Advertisements", the authors review a total of 173 job advertisements posted between October 2011 and April 2012 were collected from various sources to take into account varying types of professionals in the field of digital curation across North America.


"Position title, institution types and location, educational background, experience, knowledge and skills, and duties were examined and analyzed. The results of the analysis show that digital curation jobs are characterized by a complex interplay of various skills and knowledge."


The authors also identified their first version of a set of iCAMP competencies, defined as: knowledge, skills, abilities, and attitudes to carry out a wide range of professional functions in support of digital curation responsibilities.


These skills and competencies for digital curators include seven areas:


1) Communication and interpersonal competency: This competency is required for clear and effective communication with a variety of audiences, including users, creators, managers, researchers and collaborators.


2) Curating and preserving content competency: This competency is required to understand and carry out a range of activities as defined in the digital curation lifecycle model, including the creation, acquisition, management, representation, access, organization, transformation and preservation of digital content.


3) Curation technologies competency: This competency is required to identify, use, and develop tools and applications to support digital curation activities. The context of this competency is the information technology infrastructure, including the tools and applications deployed to support digital curation.


4) Environmental scanning competency: This competency is required to identify and use resources to stay current and on the leading edge regarding trends, technologies and practices that affect professional work and capabilities within the field of digital curation.


5) Management, planning and evaluation competency: This competency is required for planning, coordinating, implementing, and assessing programs, projects and services related to digital curation.


6) Services competency: This competency is required to identify, understand and build services to respond to a community’s and/or institution’s digital curation needs.


7) Systems, models and modeling competency: This competency is required for high-level, abstract thinking about and critical analysis of complex systems, workflows and conceptual models related to digital curation.

"Bit.ly announced a new set of APIs named Social Data APIs.

The new APIs allow you to search for top stories in real time over the Bit.ly URL network. You can quickly see the top URLs and stories for any specific query right now, in real time.

 

The three types of functions include:

1) True Realtime Search: Search for top stories and URLs in real time by query and geographic area.

2) Attention Spikes: This doesn’t require you to search by keyword, instead the “bursts API” returns the current phrases that are receiving a burst in attention beyond what we would expect.

3) Metadata about URLs: Bit.ly will provide the metadata on URLs based off of keywords, topics, content, language, and location relevance..."

Social Media's Biggest Screw-Ups [INFOGRAPHIC]

Social Media's Biggest Screw-Ups [INFOGRAPHIC] | Twitter Research | Scoop.it

The list of celebrities and major brands burned by social media blunders is long and ever-growing.

 

Who could forget former U.S. Representative Anthony Weiner, whose tweeted crotch-shot set a new standard for political pratfalls in the social media age? Then there’s actor Woody Harrelson, whose epically failed Reddit AMA spawned a derisive meme and undermined the very film he was aiming to promote.

 

Among brands, there’s the Red Cross employee who accidentally tweeted about “#gettingslizzerd” from the charity’s official account rather than her personal one. Ragu, Nestle and Kenneth Cole have all showed some Twitter or Facebook ineptitude of their own as well.

 

But not every high-profile gaffe has to end with embarrassment or alienated fans. Handling a blunder smoothly with humor and class can actually reflect well on a celebrity or brand, turning negative into positive. The Red Cross did just that, for example, by addressing the erroneous tweet head-on — but in a lighthearted way — and partnering with a brewery for a blood drive.

 

The above infographic, which comes from creative agency MDG Advertising, takes a look at some of the most notable social screw-ups of the past few years. But more than that, it tracks the aftermath — for better or worse — of each mistake. Check it out above for the full rundown, and give us your own examples in the comments.
