Mind boggling to think what that the overload of content he speaks of is now created in a single day, every day.

30+ Cool Content Curation Tools for Personal & Professional Use

30+ Cool Content Curation Tools for Personal & Professional Use | Students as Curators | Scoop.it

As the web becomes more and more inundated with blogs, videos, tweets, status updates, news, articles, and countless other forms of content, “information overload” is something we all seem to suffer. It is becoming more difficult to weed through all the “stuff” out there and pluck out the best, most share-worthy tidbits of information, especially if your topic is niche. Let’s face it, Google definitely has its shortcomings when it comes to content curation and the more it tries to cater to all audiences, the less useful it becomes.

 

The demand for timely, relevant content that is specific to our unique interests and perspectives has given rise to a new generation of tools that aim to help individuals and companies curate content from the web and deliver it in a meaningful way. These new tools range from simple, application-specific types such as social media aggregators and discovery engines, to more complex, full-blown publishing solutions for organizations.

 

Here’s a look at over 30 content curation tools.....

The Explosion of Pinterest and Why You Should Read This Report

The Explosion of Pinterest and Why You Should Read This Report | Students as Curators | Scoop.it

This piece was written by Dave Copeland for Readwriteweb. There have been many articles about Pinterest but if you do nothing else, read the white paper by Engauge and report they're referring to. It is absolutely the best one I've seen to date. (more details below)

 

The most important thing in this piece is the report, here's what you'll see:

 

A new Engauge white paper breaks down:

 

**the make-up of the average Pinterest user 

 

**shows that the end result of less reading is more of a focus on content curation than creation.

 

**The timing of that trend, combined with a stunning design when Internet users are focusing more on visual than text, has allowed Pinterest to explode in popularity.

 

This is what caught my attention - a quote from a user:

 

"When I'm looking for new trends on specific topics like fashion or birthday party themes, I now search Pinterest first -- not Google." - Karah Street

Curation, Just Like PKM, Is About Adding Value To Help Sense-Making | Harold Jarche

Curation, Just Like PKM, Is About Adding Value To Help Sense-Making | Harold Jarche | Students as Curators | Scoop.it

"...I want to point out that people with better PKM skills, an ability to create higher value information, and a willingness to share it, will become more valued members (nodes) in their professional networks." (Harold Jarche)

 

Robin Good: In this short article analyzing the PKM (personal knowledge management) process it is interesting to note the strong affinity it has with curation.

 

"The critical part of PKM is in personalizing information and experience, or to use a business term, adding value.

 

Ross Dawson shows five ways to add value to information (my examples/descriptions follow):

 

1) Filtering (separating signal from noise, based on some criteria)

 

2) Validation (ensuring that information is reliable, current or supported by research)

 

3) Synthesis (describing patterns, trends or flows in large amounts of information)

 

4) Presentation (making information understandable through visualization or logical presentation)

 

5) Customization (describing information in context)."

 

More info and examples presented in the article do not seem to include yet the appearance of a trusted news curator as a means to develop such PKM, which although is defined as "an individually created process", it could rely in the near future not just on tools, but also on the filtering and curation work of other humans.

 

Or not?

Thoughtful. 8/10.
