50 Curated News Sites: A Collection of Real-World Examples

50 Curated News Sites: A Collection of Real-World Examples | Content Curation World | Scoop.it

Robin Good: Here is a collection of curated news sites that I have put together over the course of the last few months.


It contains over 30 news sites that utilize human curation to pick and showcase the most relevant stories in their area of coverage.


From early examples to news curation like Arts & Letters or the Drudge Report to the most recent examples of news curated sites for both big brands (Pepsi, Adobe), NGOs (FAO) and independent publishers (Techmeme, MediaGazer) you can find a broad range of examples to study, research or get inspiration from.


The collection is ony visual with a minimum of reference info.


Free. Updated monthly.

Two Very Different Ways of Curating The News: Techmeme vs. Daring Fireball

Two Very Different Ways of Curating The News: Techmeme vs. Daring Fireball | Content Curation World | Scoop.it

Robin Good: Valuable analysis of two very different approaches to news curation on the Intigi blog.


Justin Lambert writes: "The argument for content curation is no longer an argument.


Curation is the only means by which anyone can really make sense of the flood.


But there are a lot of different forms of large-scale curation, from the purely automated aggregation of RSS feeds to hand-selected, best-of-the-best link lists.


Not to mention the smaller-scale curation going on all over the social web by individuals sharing interesting and valuable links with their personal and professional communities."


In this first installment of a six-part series on curation, Mr Lambert explores and analyzes the differences between Techmeme, a curated tech news aggregator and Daring Fireball a one-man-band writer wittfully curating a unique variety of Apple related bits.


Good analysis. 7/10
