Robin Good's curator insight, January 12, 2013 5:23 PM


Stowe Boyd takes a look at the story of Twitter hiring a team of real-time human curators to organize its key trending topics and why having humans making such choices is such an important element, not just for Twitter, but for any search engine or  company truly interested in what social conversations are really saying.


He writes on GigaOM: "...this sort of human curation will be increasingly important in the business context.


For example, if a competitor’s product XJ11 is being mentioned all over the social network within your company, understanding why may be critical. Perhaps they have just announced a big sale, or are selling the product line off.  But the new spike in activity is likely to be related to very recent events, and not the long tail of older piece of information about that product. And the most likely candidates to help make sense of the new trend? The people originating the cascading comments in the social communications tools.


[The] Twitter approach [with a team of real-time human curators] is one way to go, although instead of using Mechanical Turk a system that asks the originators of these trends for clarification, it might just message the earliest trend setters to ask them what’s up. Alternatively, an approach like Tumblr’s editorial teams might be employed, where individuals are selected to act as editors or curators, and to actively pull out information that is novel and important, and post it onto topic pages.


Whichever approach is taken, I have no doubt that we will see social curation emerging as a key component of our business social networking tools in the near future.


And we will still be relying on human beings as the key element of sense making, not machinery."



Important topic. Good analysis. 7/10

So...this is saying that 'social curation' is more concerned with extracting and analyzing from a diversity of social threads?
Robin Good's comment, January 14, 2013 1:22 PM
That's certainly implied, but more than that the key takeaway here is that algorithms can't do what humans can, especially when it comes to selecting, evaluating and organizing news stories.

Clipped launches as a Flipboard competitor, using natural language processing to better curate news

Clipped launches as a Flipboard competitor, using natural language processing to better curate news | Social Media Content Curation | Scoop.it

Excerpted from article on The Next Web:

"Finding ways to keep track of what’s happening in the world and in various markets can be pretty difficult, especially on mobile devices. People are interested in seeking out new ways to allow them to get information that’s relevant and important to them.

 

Apps to help with this problem include Flipboard, a popular social news aggregator that has helped to change the way people consume content,Zite, Cir.ca, and Summly. Now, Clipped is seeking to take its place as one of those services and has launched its iOS and Android apps to help optimize the way people consume the news on their mobile devices.

 

Created by Tanay Tandon, Clipped’s original intent was to be something that the average teenager could use easily. He says that it was important for the user to be able to open up the application and immediately find the most important information in front of them.


Processing, Clipped believes that it allows it to generate comprehensive summaries of articles. As Tandon tells us:

"The technology grammatically analyzes text, and discovers which sentence structures hold the most important information. The algorithm diagrams sentences through a Part of Speech tagger, and can determine which information is dependent on other sections. Through a combination of statistics and keyword analysis, we are then able to rank chunks of information and select which regions of the sentences are most relevant. Clipped then re-reads its summary and makes sure that the selected information contextually makes sense. The algorithm then returns the top information as a bulleted list for the user to read..."

New Social Content Discovery Tool: Hopflow

New Social Content Discovery Tool: Hopflow | Social Media Content Curation | Scoop.it

Giuseppe Mauriello: Hopflow is web and iOS social content discovery app which seeks to connect users with a stream of content based on their personal interests. It is similar to other services like Prismatic and Trapit.

 

From reviewed article by The Next Web:

"Hopflow lets users Discover and share content through following specific topics rather than individual sources, and based on these interests, a personalized flow of stories from around the Web is reeled in.

 

You’ll need to sign up with your Twitter or Facebook credentials.

Hopflow scanned my Twitter history and, quite accurately, told me all the subjects I am indeed interested in.

 

You can, of course, manually select and deselect options as you see fit, and once you click ‘Done’, you’ll have a long stream of news stories based around your topics of interest. It’s like Twitter, except you follow topics rather than accounts, and this comparison is given further credence with the ‘Rehop’ feature which lets you share your news with others.

 

“The social Web is full of content platforms that force people to manually follow and filter through sources and information,” says Erez Pilosof, CEO and Founder of Hopflow. ” In this contextual age, people want tools that are simple and provide targeted information. We believe that discovering and sharing stories about the things that interest you shouldn’t be tedious and time consuming but rather fun and easy. Hopflow eliminates unwanted noise and allows users to sit back and enjoy a beautiful image-based ‘flow’ of relevant content outside of their current social networks.”

Top 5 Spotify Apps For Music Discovery

Top 5 Spotify Apps For Music Discovery | Social Media Content Curation | Scoop.it
Excerpted from article:
"Spotify wasn't built for discovery. The Swedish music streaming company realizes this and instead of trying to natively bake a zillion features into its service, it launched a platform for third party developers about a year ago.

Spotify's app directory now features almost 60 HTML5-based add-ons for the service's desktop client. These apps perform a lot of different functions - some are social, while others sonically augment album reviews from big name publishers. The thing for which they're probably most useful is discovering music you might like but may never have heard otherwise.

1. Moodagent:
it has been one of the most interesting apps on the platform. That's because it takes standard algorithmic music recommendations and beefs them up with emotional intelligence.

2. Last.fm:
the Internet radio and music recommendation service is still a reliable tool for discovering new artists. It works by keeping track of everything you listen to and using a Pandora-style algorithm to recommend related artists and albums. It's a simple concept, but one that apparently holds up quite well over time.

3. Swarm.fm:
another social music-discovery app.
Swarm.fm is pretty useful. It uses data from Facebook to show you what music your friends are listening to, even if they're not signed up for Swarm.fm.
That tag cloud on the home tab might look like just another collection of metadata, but it's actually informed by your social music data.

4. ShareMyPlaylists:
 It's a random conglomeration of curated listening experiences, but one that is well worth browsing. 
ShareMyPlaylists has something for absolutely everyone. Devotees of popular music from the charts can browse the "Top 50" tab while those with more under-the-radar tastes will find plenty of new stuff under the "Recommended" tab, which finds playlists based on the artists you listen to the most.

5. The Hype Machine:
The Hype Machine eschews the complex algorithm in favor of human-curated playlists. Specifically, it aggregates tracks from popular music blogs across a wide range of genres, each of them very heavily populated.


There are plenty of discovery apps on Spotify worth checking out - top charts from We Are Hunted and Billboard and social music from TweetVine, Soundrop and Sifter. Depending on your tastes, the critic-curated recommendations from Pitchfork, Rolling Stone, NME or KCRW can be invaluable..."

A 1945 Essay On Information Overload, Curation, And Open-Access Science | Maria Popova

A 1945 Essay On Information Overload, Curation, And Open-Access Science | Maria Popova | Social Media Content Curation | Scoop.it

Excerpted from article by great curator Maria Popova:

"Tim O’Reilly recently admonished that unless we embrace open access over copyright, we’ll never get science policy right. The sentiment, which I believe applies to more than science, reminded me of an eloquent 1945 essay by Vannevar Bush, titled “As We May Think.”

 

Much of what Bush discusses presages present conversations about information overload, filtering, and our restless “FOMO” — fear of missing out, for anyone who did miss out on the memetic catchphrase — amidst the incessant influx. Bush worries about the impossibility of ever completely catching up and the unfavorable signal-to-noise ratio.

 

Bush makes an enormously important — and timely — point about the difference between merely compressing information to store it efficiently and actually making use of it in the way of gleaning knowledge.

 

To that end, I often think about the architecture of knowledge as a pyramid of sorts — at the base of it, there is all the information available to us; from it, we can generate some form of insight, which we then consolidate into knowledge; at our most optimal, at the top of the pyramid, we’re then able to glean from that knowledge some sort of wisdom about the world.

 

He stresses, as many of us believe today, that mechanization — or, algorithms in the contemporary equivalent — will never be a proper substitute for human judgment and creative thought in the filtration process.

 

He presages hypertext, the internet, and even Wikipedia — and, perhaps more importantly, laying out a model for what excellence at the intersection of the editorial and curatorial looks.

 

Bush nails the value of what we call today, not without resistance, “information curation”:

Bush wrote: "There is a new profession of trail blazers, those who find delight in the task of establishing useful trails through the enormous mass of the common record. The inheritance from the master becomes, not only his additions to the world’s record, but for his disciples the entire scaffolding by which they were erected."

 

He concludes by considering the cultural value and urgency, infinitely timelier today than it was in his day, of making our civilization’s “record” — the great wealth of information about how we got to where we are — manageable, digestible, and useful in our quest for knowledge, wisdom, and growth..."

Discover, Follow And Obtain Information About Products Releasing In The Future With Hypejar | Social Media Content Curation | Scoop.it

Excerpted from review article by The Next Web:

"There’s no shortage of apps and websites to help guide consumers’ decision-making. But what about products and services that have yet to hit the market?

Hypejar wants to organize the world’s upcoming products, making them more accessible and easy-to-find.

 

“We strive to be the go-to website for movies, music, video games, gadgets, cars, and anything else with a future release date,” explains Grant Yim, one of the company’s four co-founders. “Users can keep track of products and be notified of their releases....”

 

When you first visit Hypejar, you’ll be greeted with a long page of content, with categories including ‘Releasing Soon’, ‘Most Hyped’, ‘Recently Seen’ and ‘Just Added’ featuring prominently.

Across the top of the page you’ll see a series of menus, one of which is ‘Browse’, which lets you filter out content by category – such as movies, music, video games and so on.

 

A core facet of Hypejar is its community – it is what helps to populate the content. As such, if you have a good scoop on an upcoming launch, you can choose to add a new item yourself.

You’re given the options of category, sub-category, product name, manufacturer, launch date and so on.

 

It’s also worth mentioning a key Hypejar feature…your own personal jar. It’s akin to ‘Liking’ or ‘Favoriting’ a product, with all your top upcoming launches viewable in the ‘Products In My Jar’ tab, after you’ve clicked on an item’s ‘Add To My Jar’ button. You will also receive email notifications around your interested products.

 

So, Hypejar is like a cross between Pinterest and Wikipedia for upcoming products..."

Archive Your Entire Online Life With This Tool: Recollect

Archive Your Entire Online Life With This Tool: Recollect | Social Media Content Curation | Scoop.it

Excerpted from review article on Mashable:

"Recollect solves two problems at once by providing a simple tool to archive your online data and search through it later to re-discover your old posts.

 

The more information we share, the harder it can be to find any particular post later on and the more we have to lose if any of these networks ever disappear.

 

With Recollect, users can archive posts shared on Twitter, Instagram, Flickr and Foursquare – along with any comments on those posts from other users — and download a Zip file of all that data at any time. Prices for the service range from $6/month for 5,000 archived photos, one monthly data download and one account per social network, to a premium $24/month account that covers 50,000 archived photos, weekly downloads and up to 5 accounts per website. There is also an option to try out the service for 30 days, which gives users the ability to archive and download all their online data once for free.

 

For the beta release, the team decided to narrow their focus to working with just the four social networks mentioned above and building a set of four key features into the service, including the ability to archive posts, download data, browse through the archive and search for specific keywords.

 

Recollect offers a novel solution to what we might call the re-discovery problem — helping users categorize and unearth their treasure trove of old posts.

 

The team hopes to continue improving on Recollect by building what Martin describes as a more “intelligent archive,” which will offer additional options for browsing and discovering older content.

 

The group also plans to incorporate more social networks into Recollect, including Facebook..."

New Visual Storytelling Tool: Storyplanet Lets Users Package Content Into Interactive Experiences

New Visual Storytelling Tool: Storyplanet Lets Users Package Content Into Interactive Experiences | Social Media Content Curation | Scoop.it

Excerpted from review article by Journalism.co.uk:

"The platform enables users – such as journalists and photographers – to build interactive and visually captivating packages of content, which can then be embedded within a news site.

 

We discussed the concept with founder Bjarke Myrthu, who describes Storyplanet as "a packaging or a wrapping or an interface tool", which journalists can use to bring together collections of their work in a great user experience.
"So if you have a bunch of different media types, some text, some video, some photos, you can create a really nice package out of it that people can navigate in different ways," Myrthu added.

 

Each story is built on a grid, which users can then add "tiles" to, which effectively form each page of the story, and appear like slides in a presentation.
The grid format means tiles can be arranged in different structures based on the desired flow of the story and navigation between pages can also be applied.

 

Using the builder tool each tile can be laid out, edited and have content added to it, whether that is a photo, video, piece of audio or just text.

The content of a tile can vary from featuring just a photo to acting as an index page with a list of sections, like chapters, which can be clicked on by the viewer to reach different parts of the story.
Users can also edit transitions between tiles, the order of the tiles and other details such as changing the background colour of the tile.

The final product is viewable via a URL and can also be embedded, and played through the Storyplanet player. Currently this is a Flash player, but Storyplanet is currently working on a HTML version..."

The content of a tile can vary from featuring just a photo to acting as an index page with a list of sections, like chapters, which can be clicked on by the viewer to reach different parts of the story. 
Users can also edit transitions between tiles, the order of the tiles and other details such as changing the background colour of the tile.

Achieving "the thoughtful and useful aggregation and organization of content, context and commerce" as Rosenbaum writes, without, as Marty adds, distracting consumers from the goal of converting visits into sales is a huge challenge for commerci stes, especially given the ever shortening product life cycle.

Eric Moran's curator insight, January 11, 2013 7:38 PM

The piece that stands out to me in this great explanation of the benefits of content curation is the benefits of the three C's at work in this example.

 

Content

Context 

Commerce

 

Give people great content and they will stay engauged. Keep them engaged in your topic and they are more enticed to stay loyal. That is what we continue to share with the businesses we are working with.

Bit.ly Releases Search API To Discover Hot Stories & Discussions | Social Media Content Curation | Scoop.it

Excerpted from article by Search Engine Land:

"Bit.ly announced a new set of APIs named Social Data APIs.

The new APIs allow you to search for top stories in real time over the Bit.ly URL network. You can quickly see the top URLs and stories for any specific query right now, in real time.

 

The three types of functions include:

1) True Realtime Search: Search for top stories and URLs in real time by query and geographic area.

2) Attention Spikes: This doesn’t require you to search by keyword, instead the “bursts API” returns the current phrases that are receiving a burst in attention beyond what we would expect.

3) Metadata about URLs: Bit.ly will provide the metadata on URLs based off of keywords, topics, content, language, and location relevance..."

The Human Algorithm: Redefining the Value of Data | Brian Solis

The Human Algorithm: Redefining the Value of Data | Brian Solis | Social Media Content Curation | Scoop.it
Excerpted from this interesting article by Brian Solis:
"While the amount of personal and ambient information churned out by SoLoMo is often inundating or even perplexing, it is this “big” data that will help businesses evolve and adapt in a new era of connected consumerism. More importantly, the study and understanding of relevant big data will shift organizations from simply reacting to trends to predicting the next disruption and adapting ahead of competition—thus, marking the shift from rigid to adaptive business models.

Without interpretation, insight and the ability to put knowledge to work, any investment in technology and resources is premature. But, by investing in human capital to make sense of would be ominous data, organizations can modernize the role of business intelligence to introduce a human touch.

The reality is though that how organizations connected with customers yesterday is not how customers will be served tomorrow. Meaning, the entire infrastructure in how we market, sell, help, and create now requires companies to not only study data and behavior but also change how it thinks about customers.

I refer to the confluence of data and interpretation as the human algorithm—the ability to humanize technology and data to put a face, personality, and voice to the need and chance for change. Data tells a story, it just needs help finding its rhythm and rhyme.

The human algorithm is part understanding and part communication. The ability to communicate and apply insights internally and externally is the key to unlocking opportunities to earn relevance. Beyond research, beyond intelligence, the human algorithm is a function of extracting insights with intention, humanizing trends ad possibilities and working with strategists to improve and innovate everything from processes to products to overall experiences.

The Future of Disqus Aims at Better Discovery

The Future of Disqus Aims at Better Discovery | Social Media Content Curation | Scoop.it
Expcerpted from article:
"Disqus is already everywhere you’ve been on the Web. It’s the most widely utilized commenting platform on the Internet.
The company recently had a “hack week,” piecing together features that could end up in the final Disqus product.

In essence, Disqus wants to build something greater than the sum of its disparate discussion parts, the “destination” experience that the company is missing.
Think of it as an amalgam of features popular on other social sites like Reddit, StumbleUpon and even Pinterest.

The thinking behind the experiments makes sense. If the company can create new ways to drum up user engagement through a central portal like a Disqus homepage, that activity can be channeled out to the disparate discussions occurring across the hundreds of thousands of sites Disqus currently lives on..."

12 Attributes of a Successful Content Curation Strategy

12 Attributes of a Successful Content Curation Strategy | Social Media Content Curation | Scoop.it

 

Excerpted from article by Heidi Cohen:

"Content curation is like a great editor who brings his unique taste and understanding of his target audience to his selection of the best content for his readers. He provides context for the content so that it’s more than collection of information.


Content curation chooses the most relevant, highest quality digital information to meet your readers’ needs on a specific subject. It involves a process of assembling, categorizing, commenting and presenting the top content.

 

Content curation is a core content marketing element for the following three reasons:

- Offering your audience a combination of original and third party content provides a branded -context for your work.
- Curating other people’s content positions you and/or your organization as a tastemaker in your field.
- Creating sufficient content is a marketing and business challenge.

 

Here are twelve attributes your content curation strategy should have to insure success.

1) Has defined, measurable goals...
2) Targets a specific audience...
3) Contains red meat content, not filler...
4) Follows “the less is more” theory...
5) Incorporates original content... 
6) Adds real value...
7) Has a human touch...
8) Provides branded context for your information... 
9) Involves a community...
10) Offers information in small chunks... 
11) Sticks to a schedule...
12) Credits its creator...

 

Content curation puts your original content in a branded context for your target audience..."

This is a really good article about content curation. There is nothing wrong with doing content curation, as it provides insight from multiple sources. As this article points out, the trick is curating content that adds value to whatever it is that you are adding the content to. In my case, it's my blog. I've followed most of these guidelines instinctively, because I want to provide quality information to share with fellow technical communicators and e-learning specialists. 

 

Read this one carefully, as it's chock full of good advice.

Humans Vs. Robots: Who's On Top? Steve Rosenbaum On Forbes

Humans Vs. Robots: Who's On Top? Steve Rosenbaum On Forbes | Social Media Content Curation | Scoop.it

Excerpted from article:

"In a room full of media heavyweights, CEOs, and high-tech entrepreneurs, the debate is hardly philosophical. "Will Robots overtake Humans?" and in some cases should they?

The Monaco Media Forum was the site of the showdown, and the panel was an esteemed group of thinkers and digital leaders...and with Steve Rosenbaum, a passionate advocate for human curation – both as the author of Curation Nation, and the CEO of Magnify.net.

 

Here I propose a new rule of robotics. That going forward Robots must identify themselves as robots – and can’t impersonate being a human being.

 

Automation makes things more efficient, more the same, more boring. But humans tends to make things that aren’t exactly the same. The nature of human creation is that it isn’t algorithmic, but it, in fact, will have connections and relationships that are both logical and illogical.

 

The human element is what makes it fun, surprising, and engaging. A robot can’t do that.

 

The shift that changes the equation is the sheer volume of content flooding the web. Digital overload is swamping the current recommendation engines, making the sharp knife of human editorial a better filter than the blunt instrument of algorithmic recommendation.

 

For the future – the question of where humans and robots share joint custody of the future remains unclear. But until then, having robots not impersonate people seems like a reasonable place to draw the line..."

Shop It To Me beefs up its shopping personalization engine with “Threads”

Shop It To Me beefs up its shopping personalization engine with “Threads” | Social Media Content Curation | Scoop.it

Excerpted from article:

"It used to be that when women needed new clothes, they went to the mall. Now malls are like relics of a different America — they’re shuttering in droves and turning into sad, vacant ghost towns. You can blame it on a lot of things, but the steady growth of online shopping has certainly not helped matters.

 

An early player in this ever-crowded catalog category, Shop It To Me has mostly acted as a utilitarian tool.

But with catalog sites and apps flooding the market hawking the trendy Big Data Personalization, it’s time for Shop It To Me, with 4 million users, to update its site.

 

The company has done so this month with Threads, its new, beefed-up personalization engine. Rather than indicate just sizes and favorite brands, Shop It To Me now asks users for preferences around trends, styles, and particular items.

 

The site does so while offering a wider, more browsable selection. And there is, thank God, a search bar. Even better, there’s a “max price” option.

 

Founder and CEO Charlie Graham explains that his app has resonated with women, because it goes beyond big data. Algorithm-driven recommendations based on someone’s Facebook Likes, Pinterest Pins, or browsing history come up short, he said. Shop It To Me users have indicated exactly what they like and want — human curation, done by the human in question..."

New Digital Trends, The Age Of Mobile, Human Curation: The Decline Of Google News

New Digital Trends, The Age Of Mobile, Human Curation: The Decline Of Google News | Social Media Content Curation | Scoop.it

Here are some excerpts from this interesting article published on PandoDaily:

"Some publishers – namely AP, AFP, and Rupert Murdoch – have long taken umbrage with Google, whom they have accused of leeching off of newspapers’ content. Cantankerous Murdoch has called Google “content kleptomaniacs.”

 

Now, politicians and newspapers in Europe and South America are engaging in fresh revolts. 

Their reasoning: When Google News offers a headline and part of the first paragraph of a story, users are less inclined to click through to read the actual article.

...

One possibility is that Google News is in decline because of converging digital trends that are lessening its influence. The Web’s big shift to mobile coupled with the explosion of social sharing, the increasing importance of human-powered curation, and tougher competition may be making the now old-school aggregator less potent.

 

There are a lot of strong forces at play in the ever-tumultuous news industry that could compromise Google News’ dominance. First, we now live in the Age of Mobile, and it’s not clear how well Google News performs on smartphones. From its iOS search app, the “News” tab does sneak into the homescreen, in the form of a button in the bottom-right-hand corner, but it is not especially prominent. 

...

Another challenge for Google News has been the emerging mania for curation. Spotify founder Daniel Ek said that the next step in the music company’s evolution will be helping people “make sense” of the abundant content.

He flagged the Pinterest-led curation wave as an important phenomenon. Pinterest proves that a mix of algorithms and human judgement can provide a superior content consumption experience.

 

Indeed, there’s evidence to suggest that many Web users are becoming more curatorial in their consumption habits, a point supported not only by Pinterest’s rise, but also by the growing prevalence of services such as Foursquare’s “Explore” feature, Twitter’s “Discover” section, Reddit, HotelTonight, Longform, Longreads.

...

As mobile and apps accelerate the proliferation and accessibility of content, it’s likely that we’re going to rely more heavily on filters to navigate this era of abundance.

 

Finally, these days Google News just faces much more competition than ever before, from startups, apps, websites, and even traditional publishers, who have become more digitally savvy. Now that we’re in an era in which reading on smartphones and tablets is a norm, apps such as Flipboard, Pulse, Feedly, Prismatic, Zite, Flud, and Sumly, just to name a few, are all vying for attention, providing news reading experiences that are not only competitive with Google News but also better looking.

...

This means that readers have more, and sometimes better, options for discovering and reading news, and publishers have other viable traffic-generating options. Perhaps that is why publishers in Europe and Brazil are acting now to slay the search beast. They sense a vulnerability that Google News didn’t have even a year ago..."

News curator Summly launches to help simplify the way we consume news on mobile devices

News curator Summly launches to help simplify the way we consume news on mobile devices | Social Media Content Curation | Scoop.it

Excerpted from review article on The Next Web:

"Summly is a free iPhone program that has a back-end that will automatically determine what the relevant facts of a story are and convert it into consumable bites of information (aka short summaries) to give you just enough to know what’s going on.

 

The company was started by Nick D’Aloisio, a 16-year-old founder who some believe to be the youngest person in the world to raise venture capital.

 

Summly launches to the world and anyone can download it for free. All the content on the screen is formatted specifically for the respective device and you won’t have to scroll through multiple screens to get the summary — just tap and read.

 

When you first open Summly, you will find that there isn’t much there. You have the option of creating channels from pre-determined news topics and personal filters.

The pre-determined topics are sourced from at least 300 English-speaking feeds while the news stories under the personal filters are generated through the Microsoft Bing API.

 

Standard Apple device gestures are integrated into this application to allow you to move forward or back, view additional options, and much more. Articles can also be shared through email, SMS, Facebook, and Twitter.

Once you’ve set up all your pre-determined news topics and personal filters, you can set them and watch it update..."
