A Flipped-Up Twitter Feed with Only The Good Stuff In It: Vellum

A Flipped-Up Twitter Feed with Only The Good Stuff In It: Vellum | Social Media Content Curation | Scoop.it

From Robin Good's insight:

"Vellum is a new free web app born out of a quick experiment at the New York Times R&D labs which allows you to see all of the most relevant Twitter stories coming from the people you follow, stripped of their commentary and showing their original title, description and source.

Vellum filters out text only tweets that contain no links, eliminates duplicates and surfaces only those tweets that have already been retweeted by multiple people.


An excellent news discovery tool for content curators..."

ok - I'm in - developed by @nytlabs

Stephen Dale's curator insight, May 9, 2014 7:29 AM

Vellum acts as a reading list  for your Twitter feed, finding all the links that are being shared by those you follow on Twitter and displaying them each with their full titles and descriptions. 

This flips the Twitter model, treating the links as primary and the commentary as secondary (you can still see all the tweets about each link, but they are less prominent). 


Vellum puts a spotlight on content, making it easy to find what you should read next.

Journalism and curation: A small-town news organization leads the way

Journalism and curation: A small-town news organization leads the way | Social Media Content Curation | Scoop.it
As the number of information sources grows and become decentralized, here are four ways it helps news organizations and their communities:

1. Better information for the community and someone looking out for their interests to highlight the best.

2. Better journalism because the links to other sources can be put in context and explanations added.

3. More potential traffic and time on site for the news organization, which delivers more value to advertisers or sponsors. (More time on site would derive from having more links to engage readers, not from any assumption that the main site would publish more than teasers.

4. More exposure for smaller sites and other sources of information, who can potentially be part of a network that delivers more value to advertisers and users alike.

Jonathan Stray » The editorial search engine

Jonathan Stray » The editorial search engine | Social Media Content Curation | Scoop.it
It’s impossible to build a computer system that helps people find or filter information without at some point making editorial judgements. That’s because search and collaborative filtering algorithms embody human judgement about what is important to know.

I’ve been pointing this out for years, and it seems particularly relevant to the journalism profession today as it grapples with the digital medium.

It’s this observation which is the bridge between the front page and the search results page, and it suggests a new generation of digital news products that are far more useful than just online translations of a newspaper.

Future of Film | Filmmaking, Festivals, And Filtering The Flood

Future of Film | Filmmaking, Festivals, And Filtering The Flood | Social Media Content Curation | Scoop.it
The future of film can be found in curation - a new way to mix a professional point of view with the wisdom of your friends, neighbors and trusted sources.

What is Curation? Why does it matter?

Because content creation is going to continue to grow exponentially - film audiences are going to need to find new ways to filter the deluge of new content, and new ways to find and filter have the potential to create new audiences and new economics.

Where Tweets Go To Die « (Re)Structuring Journalism

Where Tweets Go To Die « (Re)Structuring Journalism | Social Media Content Curation | Scoop.it
This should come as no surprise to anyone, but you’re unlikely to be reading this.

After all, you’re pretty busy, I’m sure, and constantly inundated with emails, tweets and news updates all the time. Perfectly understandable; so am I. And unless you’re a regular to this blog – and no, I don’t mean you, mom – then either you came here via a random search query (and guess how many people type “structured journalism” by chance into Google) or followed a tweet or a facebook update here. And let’s face it, who has time?

No one. No one really has time to follow the unending barrage of information that’s coming at us. It’s true, of course, that filtering mechanisms have improved greatly since the early days of the web, mostly courtesy of our friends – real and digital – who we depend on to sort out things we might like to read. As a wisdom-of-the-crowds mechanical turk, it works pretty well. I don’t have to scour the web for articles of interest to me; at least, I don’t have to scour it as much as I used to.

Event Industry Suppliers Move from Aggregation to Curation

Event Industry Suppliers Move from Aggregation to Curation | Social Media Content Curation | Scoop.it
Event industry suppliers—general service contractors, sales and marketing firms, and exhibit designers—are stepping out of their comfort zones to take advantage of the innovation that is sweeping over the industry. What might look like a desperate move by some companies to hitch their wagons to a star or an attempt to make up for the shortcomings of a flat industry is actually a smart business decision. A clear precedent for the trend comes from social media and the growing practice of content curation.
