YouTube To Replace TV News by Curating Dynamic Video Channels for Crisis and Emergency: The Crisis Response One Box

YouTube To Replace TV News by Curating Dynamic Video Channels for Crisis and Emergency: The Crisis Response One Box | Content Curation World | Scoop.it

Robin Good: YouTube is moving further ahead in the effort to find new and effective ways to "curate" its most valuable content and in doing it it may just provide a better service than live TV.


In this light it has partnered with Storyful, a content curation platform provider, to give life to a series of new curated channels with user-generated videos, covering live emergency crises around the world as they happen.


SocialMediaToday (AU) reports: ""YouTube collates Storyful’s verified footage and provides the most up to date clips in the separate Crisis Response One Box at the top of the search results, so that people can view legitimate and genuine footage relevant to the event, and keep apprised of what’s happening. Often, before they will be able to view it via mainstream media outlets..."


"YouTube created the Crisis Response One Box in conjunction with Storyful in an attempt to provide almost instant access to the latest breaking news footage in the event of a crisis or disaster.


Information can be slow-flowing, particularly in making its way around the globe. Users don’t have to wait for their local news station to provide an update."


Mashable reports:"...The tool curates the most up-to-date videos and information on major crises and disasters.


YouTube implemented it for the first time on Monday, once news of the floods broke.


The box also includes text information and resources, including links to Google’s Crisis Response project and related news."


"...the Crisis Response One Box includes three types of content: a curated playlist of videos, a Google News cluster about the crisis and the Google Crisis Response page. All of these resources are regularly updated until the crisis abates, when the box will no longer appear with the search results."

Curate Your Own Video Board: Chill Is The New Pinterest for Video

Robin Good: Chill, the video sharing and discovery site, has just introduced a new feature that allows anyone to clip and share, on a Pinterest-like thematic board, all of the video clips he finds on the web.


The new Chill bookmarklet works very much like the Pinterest one. When you click it, a page shows you all of the video clips found in that page and offers you to clip and "post" the one you want, with your comments. 


It's as easy as that.


The generated "curated" Chill video boards are easy to scan and browse, though, in my view, a great boon would be the ability to check a few of those videos and to click a play button that plays them full screen back to back. This way I have the best of curated content, my own selection, and the final lay-back and watch gratification option. 


Very promising.

YouTube Auto-Curates In-Demand Topics with Auto-Generated Channels

YouTube Auto-Curates In-Demand Topics with Auto-Generated Channels | Content Curation World | Scoop.it

Robin Good: YouTube auto-generated channels are channels that are automatically created by dedicated algorithms to collect trending and popular videos by topic.


"Auto generated channels act like user channels in that you can subscribe to them and stay updated on new videos.


In addition, auto generated channels provide:


-> The ability to subscribe and get regular updates about this topic on YouTube on your feed


-> A way to find other channels related to this topic


-> More context about this topic from Wikipedia or other sources


YouTube algorithmically determines the central topics in a video and then uses that information to develop great collections of videos for any topic of interest.


These channels do not convey any editorial opinion.
