User-Centered Content Curation: Five Good Tips from Sam Burroughs

User-Centered Content Curation: Five Good Tips from Sam Burroughs | Content Curation World | Scoop.it

"Most people curate for the benefit of themselves or their organisations. What if we..."

Robin Good's insight:



Sam Burroughs says it right: "What if we considered content curation from a user centered design perspective? What would audience centered curation look like?"


His suggestions are right on the mark:


  • Stop thinking you need to post always something. If you haven't got something good, don't.


  • Focus on a very specific interest and audience. 
     
  • Evaluate and share your opinion.
     
  • Let readers know how much time it takes to read the source you are suggesting to check.  
     
  • Explain, always clearly why something you are curating is relevant. Contextualize. 


More signal, less noise.


A good review of five things you need to pay attention to, for your content curation to generate some results.


Right on the mark. Practical advice. 8/10

There are four other great tips equally as important, that we should use when communicating information to others.

In today's fast-paced world the information that we are trying to communicate to others should be user centered.

Content Curation for NGOs: Where's The Value?

Robin Good's insight:



If you are a NGO or a non-profit organization, your reference point for anything that relates to effective communication online should be Beth Kanter


In the presentation / discussion she facilitated yesterday in San Francisco she illustrated the why, how and the key benefits that content curation can bring to any organization.

She writes: "Content curation can empower us to learn more and use that knowledge to get deeper impact for our nonprofit’s programs.   

We can no longer afford to get distracted by the volume of information flying past us.
" 


In this article she published before the event, you can find some valuable indications of how true "value" can be added to your content by adopting a "curating" perspective and what are the type of questions you should be considering to evaluate in a critical fashion the content you produce or curate.
