Community, by definition, is a unified body of individuals. It’s a group of people who all connect with one another ROUND points of common interests. It’s where we converse. It’s where we exchange ideas.

Robin Good Reaches 1M Views on Scoopit - Curation Works

Robin Good Reaches 1M Views on Scoopit - Curation Works | Collaborationweb | Scoop.it

Curation Works
Doubt the value of curated content? Have skeptical CFO who doubts the value of "inbound marketing" in general and curation in particular? You may want to introduce your CFO to Robin Good.

Robin is an uber-curator who knows about every cool tool moments after they push live and who speaks, teaches and explains content curation. Robin's Scoopit just reached 1M views. 

Your CFO may say, "Views don't matter, only conversion does". Let's grant your CFO his statement and ask a question. All things being equal do you think conversion increase in some synchronous dance with views? Let's continue to ask what small % your CFO will grant for conversion.

Lets say your CFO says 1%. The law of large numbers says we would rather have 1% of a million than one percent of a smaller number. 1% of 1M is 100,000. Even if what you sell cost a dollar Robin's curation on Scoopit just produced $100,000.

The other discussion for your CFO is to discuss Robin's cost basis. If you publish 1M words with a cost of $.05 a word you will spend $50,000. Even if you have the 50,000 creating that much content isn't always a good idea. 

 

We've created a new metric at Atlantic BT called Link Efficiency Index or LEI. LEI judges the ratio of content created (pages in Google) to inbound link support. Increasing page counts without social shares (links) lowers LEI and so makes a post Panda and Penguin Google unhappy. 

 

Curation can increase views, subscribers and conversion without lowering LEI especially when using a tool like Scoopit (if you embed Scoopit inside your stack you may want to keep Google's spider out or LEI can be hurt and dupe content issues may become an issue, an issue easily avoided with robots.txt or rel no follow). 

 Curation, especially when you are as good at is as Robin, generates views, subscribers, engagement and conversion while costing a fraction of the fully weighted cost of creation. Curation also avoids the, "Talk to yourself about yourself," trap 1M words of creation might create. 


Congratulations to uber-curator Robin Good. As I've written this Robin has had 500 views (amazing).

3 major trends in knowledge work

3 major trends in knowledge work | Collaborationweb | Scoop.it

Jochen Robes hat einen Artikel von Oscar Berg zusammengefasst, der versucht, einige bekannte Phänomene und Entwicklungen mal aus einem anderen Blickwinkel zu betrachten:

1. Social technologies have become boring
“… key social technologies such as tagging, blogs, wikis and micro-blogging have hit the Slope of Enlightenment and are soon on the Plateau of Productivity.”

2. Collaboration is the new black
“There is, however, still a large knowing-doing gap when it comes to collaboration.”

3. Knowledge management is back
“It was rumored that Knowledge Management died in the late 90’s. Thankfully, it never did and now it’s back again, dressed up as “Knowledge Sharing”.”

Berg: “Now that the technologies have become boring, perhaps we can now change our behaviors and ways of working to make collaboration and knowledge sharing happen more naturally across all borders.”

James Fowler on the Power of Social Networks - Science Rockstars | Collaborationweb | Scoop.it

"Your book Connected has introduced me to the science behind our social networks. It is a mind opening book. I even made my wife read it (and she loved it). After that, people like Duncan Watts and Sinan Aral also did a great job in pushing the science of social networks further and at the same time popularizing it.

 

For those who are not familiar with your work, what are the main insights you gained on networks, and why should businesses bother themselves with these insights?'

Howard Rheingold's curator insight, August 23, 2013 6:46 PM

Augmented Collective Intelligence always involves a technology component and a human social component. Digital media such as personal computers and smartphones can augment the ability of individuals to think, problem-solve, and communicate. At the same time, digital networks enable people to form new kinds of publics and to work together in ways not previously practical or possible. A key to understanding the way augmented collective intelligence can emerge or even be instigated is an understanding of the way human social networks work.

Because of its openness, its technology based on mobility, cloud and performing networks, because of globalization, free trade and capital movement; the Networked Society will transform and reshape businesses and industries.

The Psychology of Networking

The Psychology of Networking | Collaborationweb | Scoop.it

“At the core of our relationship with work [people] is the psychological contract — comprised of our perceptions and beliefs concerning the exchange agreement that exists between ourselves and our employer [clients].” - Dr. Marla Gottschalk. If we start out with the wrong notion about networking, developing relationships with other people, then we are immediately put on the back foot and for sure, relationships will be ‘harder’ and take much more energy.
