Brands as Content Curators | Content Curation World | Scoop.it
With the advent of social networks and Web authoring tools, companies and brands have found ways to circumvent the traditional media spend and instead engage in product placement, branded integrations, brand underwriting content, content syndication, and sponsored communities.

Content Curation Tools: How To Pick The Right One?

Content Curation Tools: How To Pick The Right One? | Content Curation World | Scoop.it
y definition, content curation is the act of continually identifying, organizing, and sharing the best and more relevant content on a specific topic or issue online. When evaluating which content curation tool to use, there are three primary areas of consideration:

1. The Inputs – Where does the content curation tool get information from? What type of content will this allow me to curate? Will it help identify and recommend relevant content?

2. The Organization – What does this tool offer in terms of organizing content once it has been identified? What type of data models does this represent content as? In a simple chronological list, or an inter-linked structure? Does it let me annotate and editorialize the curated content?

3. The Venue – How and where can I share the content once I have decided to curate it?

The Three Forms Of Search...And The Rise Of Curation Spam

The Three Forms Of Search...And The Rise Of Curation Spam | Content Curation World | Scoop.it
There seems to be three forms of search emerging as Internet users try to deal with the tsunami of information and the increasingly effective techniques of spammers.

The first form of search is Google, and this will continue to be important, as much from habit, and as much as there isn't much of a choice.

The second is tapping into your own socal network to find what you need. This is limited to the subjects that your social circle knows about and depending on its size, and the time of day, it might not yield much.

The Role of Curation in Developing and Transmitting News

A new frontier of opportunity is in the ways news is being developed, packaged, and transmitted.

Curated filters are becoming more interactive. From the New York Times offering personalized news recommendations, to this past week's launch of TheDaily, a subscription-based app for the iPad indexed by Andy Baio on the Web, and the upcoming release of News.me.

Personalization has been around for a while. However, there is some increasing experimentation on listening to and picking up or playing the news as it happens. Increasingly, the opportunity is in the field, where the news is developing -- commentary, expertise, imagery, first person accounts, and so on.

Are you a content consumer or creator?

Are you a content consumer or creator? Thoughtful critique of content curation by @BrianSolis - You’ll soon learn why I’m posting shorter, but more frequent posts…In the mean time, I wanted to share with you something I’ve been thinking quite a bit about these days.
Think about the generation or two before us. A significant portion of free time was spent consuming media. From print to broadcast, everyday people simply digested information and content presented to them. But then, everything changed. We were gifted with the ability to share what we think, feel, and experience, on demand. The democratization of information was finally upon us and we the people would ensure that our voices would be heard and felt. This was our time, quite literally as Time Magazine named “us” as the person of the year.

We Me We – Why the Curation vs Aggregation Discussion is Messy

We Me We – Why the Curation vs Aggregation Discussion is Messy | Content Curation World | Scoop.it
Curation is a person or persons, engaged in the act of choosing and presenting things related to a specific topic and context.

An example of curation: the San Francisco De Young museums is exhibiting post-impressionist masterpieces from the Musée d’Orsay’s permanent collection.

Aggregation is the collection of as many things that can be found related to a topic.

Aggregation would be a collection of any or all, post-impressionist masterpieces from Musée d’Orsay’s permanent collection.

Curation is about choosing what’s in a collection. Aggregation is just collecting.
