Brian Yanish - MarketingHits.com's curator insight, January 12, 6:25 PM

I like this quote from the article


"Curation is about people. It’s about knowing what people want, when they want it, and how they want it. As smart as computers are (and will be), I think we all appreciate the front-and-center engagement of humans with high degrees of expertise in certain subjects, guiding the curation process."

Lori Wilk's curator insight, January 12, 7:28 PM

Content curation will continue to grow and curators will get more help from computers to get the work done.

Snowfallen StoryTelling: 150+ Examples of Long-Format Multimedia Stories

Snowfallen StoryTelling: 150+ Examples of Long-Format Multimedia Stories | Content Curation World | Scoop.it
Robin Good's insight:



Snowfallen definition: "to publish a whopping great story online that’s stuffed full of integrated multimedia elements — in the manner of the New York Times’ Snow Fall, the epic report on a brutal avalanche that was released late last year to much acclaim."

(source: Matter)

Whether you think that the SnowFall-like journalism format is a great thing or not, this new storytelling format characterized by long narrative texts accompanied by many multimedia elements, seems to see no stop to its growth.


Bobby Johnson of Matter / Medium, is not quite convinced that this format is always the best way to go, but besides his interesting pros and cons for the use of the snowfallen format, he has done a fantastic job of curating a great an "open" collection of all of the "snowfallen" examples already published out there.


The collection provides in a chronological order, "snowfall"-like examples essentially for the last three years, though there are a few dating back as far as to 1996. 


Excellent. 9/10

Curated Guidelines and Examples for Aggregating Content Professionally

Curated Guidelines and Examples for Aggregating Content Professionally | Content Curation World | Scoop.it
Robin Good's insight:



Among the types of content curation that are broadly used, content aggregation has been one of the first and most popular approaches that has naturally sprung up.

Content aggregation itself can be carried out in many different ways, from a completely manual approach to a fully automated one, with many different shades in between.


If you are interested in learning more about these, and about how to aggregate content in the most ethical and professional fashion, I strongly suggest reading these two short articles written by two curation professionals:

  1. http://mindymcadams.com/tojou/2013/aggregation-and-curation-in-journalism/ 
     
  2. http://stevebuttry.wordpress.com/2012/05/16/aggregation-guidelines-link-attribute-add-value/ 

The first, by Mindy McAdams is a curated version of the second one which was published more than a year earlier by Steve Buttry. Together they do an excellent job of clarifying to the non-expert what curation and aggregation are all about.


The two articles offer clear guidelines, real-world examples and recommendations on how you can make content aggregation provide true additional value to both the content sources used and to the readers alike.



Recommended. 8/10

How Large Organizations Can Leverage Curation: Shel Holtz

How Large Organizations Can Leverage Curation: Shel Holtz | Content Curation World | Scoop.it

From the original feature article by Liz Wilson on Paper.li:

 

"We asked Shel about how mid- to large-sized organisations can focus their curation efforts, and he outlines four ways organisations large and small can benefit now:

 

1. Curating news around events as an alternative to pitching for traditional media coverage: Take a product launch — they could curate who’s saying what from among their customers, partners and consumers. It’s an opportunity to create a resource and put it up on their media page.

 

2. Curating trusted, publicly accessible resources to increase reputation:

A high quality curation of content can reflect well on the organisation, increasing its reputation. It could be done by a team or a single employee, selecting what is relevant, pulling it into one place, commenting on why it’s important, and then making it accessible.

 

3. Giving employees access to social media, so they can share internally curated news outside the organisation...

 

4. Curating information to help employees work smarter: An example is external news on the intranet. Lots of intranets offer it, but often it comes from an external provider and is like a firehose — some of it not so relevant, and you can have multiple versions of the same story from different media outlets...."
