Content Curation Goes Beyond Information to Synchronizing a Community! | Collaborative Content-Curation: new Forms of Reading & Writing #curation #journalism #education #e-learning |

This is a short post, written by Sean Carton, (I'm posting his next article after this one) but he gets right to the point in this piece:


"Curation comes up when search stops working and when people realize that it isn't just about information seeking, it's also about synchronizing a community." Sean goes on to add that it's the "community" part that's at the heart of the whole curation movement


Just as a carefully-curated museum exhibit is sure to draw like-minded people together, carefully-curated content on the web has the potential to attract (and/or build) an online community of people who are into the same stuff."


Remember to:


Think about your niche and help the community make sense of its niche. Provide an ongoing resource (not just an event) and offer an attractive user experience.
