The Lazy Person's Guide to Facebook Page Content Curation

The Lazy Person's Guide to Facebook Page Content Curation | The Ischool library learningland | Scoop.it

Curated by Beth Kanter

http://www.bethkanter.org 

 

John Hadyon has a post about content curation as part of your Facebook Page Content Strategy.   While I think the word "Lazy" does a disservice - becauase it can easily encourage people to lapse into mindless consumption and sharing.

 

The point is that you way not need to feed your content channels more than once a day ... so before you feel the need to share, share, share --  think carefully about the quality of content you are sharing.  

And, be sure that you select the best, provide context, and annotation.

 

With that said, broadly searching (manually) on social media sites may not bring you best stuff - and may actually be more time consuming!  That is unless you get to know your sources.

 

He suggests looking forgaging for content on these sites:

 

Pinterest:  You can get a lot of noise if you use use the broad categories, you need to spend a little bit of time upfront looking at people's collections and only follow the relevant ones.

 

Twitter:  Keywords on Twitter don't work if they are too general.  Best to know your sources, and create Twitter lists of the people who tweet primarily on your topic of choice.   Sometimes particular hashtags have a high signal to noise ratio and may be worth folling.

 

For news, that's a big - it depends. 

  Robin Good has a great map of a couple of news sites - it is important to pick the one that is likely to have news that of interest to your community.  It might be on LinkedIn  http://www.mindmeister.com/134760952/news-content-discovery-tools-2012-by-robin-good

 

Finally, I think the advice about pulling content from other pages is a must do idea.    You can log in as your page and look at the feed.  If you're short on time, you might create a culled list of pages that consistently post great content and check thoses.   Remember, that if you find stuff from other pages to tag them and give them credit. 

 

If you're lazy, perhaps you should be a content curator - it does take some work - but it doesn't have to overwhelming or time consuming.  It is a matter of slowing and having thoughtful consumption while sharpening your critical filtering skills.

21 ways to learn from failures

curated by Beth Kanter

http://www.bethkanter.org 

 

This is a terrific deck that covers the failure literature in a series of tips using entertaining imagery. 

My favorite:  Forget best practices, learn worst practices.

 

You can learn a lot from studying examples or case studies that don't work as you can polished success stories.

Entreprise20.fr > Quatrième version de l’étude RSE de Lecko | The Ischool library learningland | Scoop.it

Cette semaine j’ai eu la chance d’assister à la présentation de la quatrième version de l’étude RSE de Lecko : Urbanisation du SI social, entre gouvernance, technologie et usage. J’ai déjà eu l’occasion de vous parler de cette étude de référence qui passe au crible les différentes solutions de social software en 2010 et 2011. Avec cette quatrième version, les équipes de Lecko ont souhaité prendre de la hauteur et aborder la notion de S.I. social. L’idée étant de prendre de la hauteur et d’appréhender le social d’un point de vue holistique. Différents constats ont ainsi été établis.

KR Connect – Blog of Kevin Roberts, CEO Worldwide, Saatchi & Saatchi: 30 Second Insights

KR Connect – Blog of Kevin Roberts, CEO Worldwide, Saatchi & Saatchi: 30 Second Insights | The Ischool library learningland | Scoop.it

Kevin Roberts recommends some reading for leaders - in particular the role of imagination in leadership:

"Imagination allows leaders to see opportunities and obstacles that others can't, it fosters collaboration and creativity, and it creates energy, all of which lead to motivation. Imagination fuels success and a winning attitude. Imagination gives us the courage to wonder 'what if'.

 

Sounds like some of that might be good in the library mix? DW
