The Five Laws of The Content Curation Economy by Steve Rosenbaum

The Five Laws of The Content Curation Economy by Steve Rosenbaum | Lenapple | Scoop.it

From Robin Good's insight:

"Steve Rosenbaum (the author of Curation Nation) strikes some pretty powerful chords that fully resonate with my vision and expectations about the future of content curation.

 

On the assumption that "The speed, scale, and number of distinct elements of produced content will double every 24 months." (call it Rosenbaum law) he rightly asserts that, as if there was already enough content, we are going to be literally inundated by tons of it soon..."

Curate Your Favorite Websites And RSS Feeds With Backstitch

Curate Your Favorite Websites And RSS Feeds With Backstitch | Lenapple | Scoop.it

iGoogle will be shutting down on November 1st, 2013.
Backstitch is a good replacement to iGoogle.

Backstitch is a web service that allows you to organize and display information from your favorite websites, services and from RSS feeds that you specify.
Backstitch also offer a browser bookmarklet that allows you to quickly add content to your startpage. You can create multiple pages according to your interests.

The mission from "about page" on Backstitch:
"Content is being constantly created online; from news stories to videos and tweets to status updates. With so much information, it is more difficult than ever to sift through all the noise and find only what's important to us. backstitch brings together all of your favorite websites and services into a beautifully organized experience for you to call your own personal web."

Here are some excerpts from past review article by TechCrunch:
There’s not really a “new” problem to solve. It’s exactly the same issue that personalized homepages always sought to address: information overload.

But unlike some previous attempts in this space (Netvibes immediately comes to mind), Backstitch users personalize the content, not the design of the website.

On Backstitch, users can add content from around the web including social services like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn and even App.net. Plus they can add deal sites like Woot and Groupon, feeds from news sites and blogs, and more.
The service also uses something they’re calling “semantic labeling,” which converts the web content into consistent formats so articles, photos, status updates and products are all displayed using a similar interface.
This technique allows them to render the content using a standard user interface toolkit, and it allows for personalized filtering, as well as the ability to pipe info from one service to another..."

Free to use.

Try out it: http://backstit.ch

Never heard of it - must be worth sharing :)

Robin Good's insight:Introducing content curation to someone who doesn't know anything about it is not always an easy task.

Content Curation Tactics: 10 Embeddable Media Sources

Content Curation Tactics: 10 Embeddable Media Sources | Lenapple | Scoop.it

Excerpt from article by Lee Odden on Online Marketing Blog:
"Creative sourcing of content is important especially when it doubles as a way to improve efficiency and boost relationships with members of your community and industry thought leaders.

A classic form of this type of efficient content sourcing is the Oreo Cookie blog post: Find a compelling, informative article written by someone you’d like to better connect with and pull an excerpt of it into a blog post.
Then write an intro paragraph to identify a problem that empathizes with the reader and a conclusion offering insights into the way forward. Cite and link the source of course.

Embeddable media can include visual rich content and more than just a snippet of text, giving your readers a much richer experience.

Here are 10 sources you can draw from for curate content that supports embeddable media:

1. YouTube – Embed Videos and Playlists http://is.gd/HEEmF8;

2. Slideshare – What is Embedding and How Do I Embed Content? http://is.gd/F1nECd;

3. Twitter – Embedded Tweets http://is.gd/1SrKJs;

4. Google+ – Google+ Embedded Posts http://is.gd/55giRC;

5. Vine – Embedded Vine Posts http://is.gd/S1LjeN;

6. Instagram – How to Embed Instagram Photos or Videos on a Web Page http://is.gd/hiFc7U;

7. Pinterest – Widget Builder http://is.gd/gGKOdW;

8. Facebook – Embedded Facebook Posts http://is.gd/GPBcZy;
