November's focus for Soical Biz is IMAGES (following the focus on Pinterest in October). There are some really helpful free tools available to help any entrepreneur, image-challenged or not, make an impact at image hungry social sites e.g. Pinterest, Facebook and Google+. There's no doubt images draw attention and drive visibility and traffic.

Robin Good's curator insight, December 10, 2013 4:23 PM


Back in Feberuary of this year Debbie Millman has interviewed Maria Popova, the curator of Brain PickingsLiterary Jukebox and the inventor of Curator's Code.


Find out what Maria thinks curation is all about (How do we make sense of the world we through stuff and through objects - whether physical or metaphysical) and why she has become so interested in it.


Maria is a fantastic and highly prolific content curator producing three original posts and between 60 to 70 tweets a day.


Specific interview points I suggest you listen to: 


-> 24':30" for combinatorial creativity and the first recorded examples of content curation as a form authroship


-> 27':16" Curation - Do you define yourself a curator?


-> 28':00" Curators don't design, they organize


-> 28':50" What is curation


-> 29':19" Curation and pattern recognition


-> 37':45" The importance of discovery - why attribution matters

Prof. Hankell's curator insight, August 7, 2013 10:19 AM
Robin Good's insight:

 

 

Mitch Free writes on Forbes about the unique business value that curation can bring to those markets where there is already an abundance of choices.

 

"The web has revolutionized access to information. If you travel to a new city, you don’t have to wait to ask a hotel concierge or local contact which restaurants are worth your time: that information is at your fingertips long before you arrive.


The web’s universality and ubiquity are also its weaknesses, however: even if all are listed online, choosing from the 25,000 restaurants in New York City still requires a local’s advice.


While “curation” might bring to mind the image of a red-jacketed museum staffer scowling at you for taking flash photographs, in the digital age it’s becoming an increasingly critical – and lucrative – business model.


No longer is access to information precious in itself. Information is overwhelmingly available, and those in a position to tame the tidal wave into a useful format offer a valuable service."

 

The articles uses as a reference example the case of a new restaurant listing site that curates the best 100 restaurants in 100 cities by charging qualifying restaurants.

 

 

Rightful. Interesting. 7/10

Ken Dickens's curator insight, August 7, 2013 1:00 PM

Non-Profits are a commodity. There are over 1.5 million of them in the US alone, all with great causes, all with their hands out to ask for money. Enter Donor Fatigue.  Want to stand out? Become "the" source of information on your cause. In other words, give to get.  You will stand out. You will gain trust.  And, you will raise money. 

Martin (Marty) Smith's curator insight, October 27, 2013 7:11 PM

This is a great read and what I'm betting on heavily at our crowdfunding cancer research website and nonprofit http://www.curecancerstarter.org. I love this quote:

?No longer do we rely on a few experts and advertisers to dole out information according to their own priorities, and passively consume that information. On the contrary, content can be created and curated by literally thousands of ‘average’ people with above average interest and insight, and spread across huge aggregations of likeminded people."

Frames my belief and our bet well.

Gianluca Fiorelli does a good job, after his webinar last week, of reporting what are the key steps, resources and strategies to use to leverage the content curation approach for gaining visibility, followers and extra traffic across social media channels.


In this intro guide he addresses some of the basic questions received by webinar participants last week.


Some good resources for news discovery, but - in my opinion - too little in the way of good examples and what they are characterized by.



Useful as an intro guide for social media content marketers. 7/10


Full guide: http://www.seomoz.org/blog/social-media-curation-guide
