Robin Good's insight:


Here's a valuable resource on content curation, "distilled" by the students of the DCurate MOOC lead Martin Couzins and Sam Burrough which organizes over 60 different articles, guides and tools on the topic.


This resources collection is presented in the form of a Pearltrees interactive map, organized into eight sections:


1. Why Do We Need Curators


2. What Is Digital Curation


3. Aggregation vs. Curation


4. It's All About Audience


5. How Do We Find Valuable Content


6. How Do You Decide What To Curate


7. Curation Tools


8. Contributions from participants


If you are new to content curation this is a good resource to bookmark and keep as a reference.

The simple fact that Youtube viewers surpass any cable network is a solid proof of the growth in social media. (Youtube is not on this graph). 

A useful graph to zoom in different networks and how to use each.

With social media continuing to be a rapidly growing industry, many businesses and people are reaching out to different social media sites in order to promote themselves. Not only has social media become addictive to all age groups, it has also become a great place to get messages across to millions or even billions of people at once. However, this is not always a good thing, as all types of messages are able to spread across the internet like wild fire. Just like any other addictive drug, social media has to ability to grasp and change someone's life in an extremely short period of time.
