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. There are so many different articles, opinions, definitions and recommendations about content curation that it is quite difficult for someone just getting familiar with the topic, to easily find out where to start and what to trust. To help out anyone needing to support the explanation of content curation to others, here are five comprehensive resource collections I have put together over the course of the last year. 1) Content Curation - Definitions a collection of the best and most useful definitions of what content curation is 2) Content Curation - What is it? Video Intros 30+ short video clips that introduce the need, practice and purpose of content curation 3) Content Curation Visualized 110+ infographics, visuals, illustrations and diagrams explaining what content curation is 4) Content Curation Tools Directory - Tools Directory 100+ of the best content curation tools organized in a directory for immediate access 5) Content Curation Tools Supermap - Tools Collection 600+ content curation, discovery, filtering and publishing tools organized by categories for doing content curation All free to use and share.

Facebook Introduces Pinterest-Style, Curated "Collections"

Facebook Introduces Pinterest-Style, Curated "Collections" | SocialMediaDesign |

Robin Good: Facebook has introduced a new curation feature designed to allow its users to collect and organize their favorite "products" into so-called "Collections".


According to Hubspot "the new feature called 'Collections,' allows marketers to add “Want” or “Collect” buttons to news feed posts about products."




The new FB "Collections" is publicly available to everyone, and it is being tested "with 7 retail partners -- Pottery Barn, Wayfair, Victoria’s Secret, Michael Kors, Neiman Marcus, Smith Optics, and"

(you need to go to those FB brad pages to test it).


It also seems that the feature can be activated in at least three different ways by one of these three upcoming action buttons:


a) "Want": adds the product to a Timeline section of a user's profile called “Wishlist”


b) "Collect": adds the item to a Collection called “Products”


c) "Like": a special version of the standard "Like" button that also adds the item to “Products”


N.B.: While Collections are free for business pages to use, they're only visible to the page's fans. You have to "Like" the page in order to see these types of posts.
