Participation Inequality: Encouraging More Users to Contribute

In most online communities, 90% of users are lurkers who never contribute, 9% of users contribute a little, and 1% of users account for almost all the action.

 

Although participation will always be somewhat unequal, there are ways to better equalize it, including:

Make it easier to contribute.
Make participation a side effect.
Edit, don't create. 
Reward — but don't over-reward — participants. 

Promote quality contributors.

When is the social curation bubble going to burst? | Digital Memory | Scoop.it

Creation is very difficult. Curation is hard. Consumption, on the other hand, is relatively easy.

The Fallacy of Information Overload - Brian Solis

The Fallacy of Information Overload - Brian Solis | Digital Memory | Scoop.it

Early in 2012, I hosted a poll across Twitter, Facebook, and Google+ to get their perspectives on information overload. I asked a simple question, “Do you suffer from information overload because of social media?” The answers were revealing…You can see the detailed results here (comments are worth reading too).
Just over 800 people in 41 countries responded and the results while scattered, told a compelling story. If we look at a simple take on yes or no, only 14% say that they feel overwhelmed with 21% affirming that they are in control of their online experience. Another 57% however feel that they are sometimes overwhelmed with social media, but they do believe it’s in their hands to manage. Interestingly, when you combine Yes, Sometimes, and “I’m addicted,” you can get a better idea of the pervasiveness of information overload, or aspects of it.

This sketchnote was suggested to me by Dean Meyers.

 

Maria Popova, creator, blogger and curator of www.brainpickings.org, talks about the creative process, how old ideas are used to fuel new stories, ideas and designs, and the creative process which relies on curation.

 

Don't you also feel curation is part of the creative process?

Transmedia Manifest

Transmedia Manifest | Digital Memory | Scoop.it

The art of storytelling has always been subject to change. Through the process of digitalization and the accompanying media convergence, we’re now on the verge of a quantum leap. We are no longer viewers, listeners, readers, users, or players.Today, we are “experiencers”, whose roles and behaviors change based on how we use and approach media.

TechCrunch | The Myth Of Serendipity

TechCrunch | The Myth Of Serendipity | Digital Memory | Scoop.it
The content that I want, and better yet, the content that I don’t even know that I want, is an ever-changing proposition based on any number of factors. To achieve that level of sophisticated customization requires a sensitive understanding of context for any proposed “serendipity engine”, both a context of the content and the user.
In the end, relevance is a goal based on context. The impossibility of fully understanding every intricacy of context at any given moment makes achieving the mythical, consistent sweet spot of serendipity impossible. Recognizing that serendipity is a constantly moving target of context, the best we can hope to achieve are fleeting moments relevance.
