What ‘Fact-Checking’ Means Online

An oldie but goodie: If the Web has changed what qualifies as fact-checking, has it also changed what qualifies as a fact?

No More Media Gatekeepers: Curators Are All We Need

No More Media Gatekeepers: Curators Are All We Need | trend in online journalism | Scoop.it

Giuseppe Mauriello: This is my “scoop” article for today. I found this article written by Suw Charman-Anderson in November of 2006 from her first professional blog “Strange Attractor”,  now permanently moved to charman-anderson.com.

 

Suw is journalist, social technologist consultant and writer, one of the UK’s social media pioneers. 

Returning to her article... the author describes the scenario of the digital industry at the time (2006), then she raises some interesting  points about the need of content curation and the importance of the curator role. Here are some gems excerpted from it:

“We already have more movies available than any one person can watch; more videos on YouTube; more blogs… more everything. It’s not like we’re starting from a point of scarcity here. And the flood of stuff is going to turn into a rampaging torrent as more people get online and more people get excited by their ability to participate and create.

In the past, the media acted as gatekeepers.

 

They were the ones that went to the movie previews…
They were the ones who got the advance copy of the game…
They were the arbiters of taste, the people in the know, the ones with the connections needed to get at culture before us plebs got at it.

But we don’t need gatekeepers anymore. We don’t need people who stand between us and our stuff, deciding what to tell us about and what to ignore. We don’t need arbiters of taste.

We do, however, still need help. There’s just too much stuff around for us to know what’s out there, to keep up with what’s good, what works for us, what is worth investigation. What we need are curators.

We need people who can gather together the things that are of interest to us, things that fit with our tastes or challenge us in interesting ways, things that enrich our lives and help us enjoy our time rather than waste it on searching.

Curators already exist. Some are people: Bloggers who sift through tonnes of stuff in order to highlight what they like, and who, if you have the same taste as them, can be invaluable to discovering new things to like.


But curation of the web has barely started. Much of what you could call curation that exists today is flawed: too many noisy opinions and not enough capacity to understand what I as an individual want…”

 

I loved this article and title that the author chose for it.

Javier Arias's curator insight, December 30, 2012 6:45 AM

A tener en cuenta estos datos que son abrumadores Tumblr tiene 3 veces más tráfico que el New York TImes y la CNN con más de 80 millones de blogs y 170 millones de usuarios de los que más del 50 % tienen menos de 30 años. 


Audiencia, Plataforma, Periodismo, Rentabilidad. Función Social. Cómo conjugar estos pilares para dar con el modelo de negocio que haga posible un nuevo periodismo en una sociedad que está cambiando tan drásticamente su forma de comunicarse y de informarse.

How The New York Times Does Social Media

How The New York Times Does Social Media | trend in online journalism | Scoop.it

“I talked with Alexis Mainland, social media editor at The NY Times, to learn more about their vision for solidifying The Times’ brand over several different platforms, and how photography has played a major role in their success.”

 

Mainland: “Social media platforms are like different countries with different languages and different customs. Certainly there are many aspects of them that overlap, but I think the key to being successful on a social platform is having a keen understanding of what makes each unique community tick.”
