Content Curation:Tips, Tactics, Tools & Techniques You Need To Know

Content Curation:Tips, Tactics, Tools & Techniques You Need To Know | Content Curation World | Scoop.it

For this month's Net2 Think Tank, we asked you to share your tips, resources, and ideas about curating content at your organization or enterprise. Below, read the curated list of the community responses we received - and share your own tips in the comments!

 

Topic: What are your best practices for curating content? Share your tips, tactics, tools, and techniques for effectively curating to serve your audience. And, if you've written about curation in the past, share the link with us!

 

Here's a quick working definition to get us started: Content curation focuses on using the web to highlight important information in situations where information overload may be a problem. Many organizations today are writing on the web regularly to communicate with their audience. At the same time, information pollution is an increasing problem for the consumers of that content. As Will Coley explains, "when organizations offer clarity amidst the noise, they build trust among supporters"

Robin Good's insight:



Introducing content curation to someone who doesn't know anything about it is not always an easy task.


There are so many different articles, opinions, definitions and recommendations about content curation that it is quite difficult for someone just getting familiar with the topic, to easily find out where to start and what to trust.


To help out anyone needing to support the explanation of content curation to others, here are five comprehensive resource collections I have put together over the course of the last year. 



1) Content Curation - Definitions

a collection of the best and most useful definitions
of what content curation is

WordPress Curation Workflow, Resources and Tips from Nathan Weller

WordPress Curation Workflow, Resources and Tips from Nathan Weller | Content Curation World | Scoop.it
Robin Good's insight:



If you are interested in what could be a good workflow and set of tools to use to curate content on your own WordPress blog, Nathan Weller has a must-read article for you.


In it, he dissects and explains the tools he uses to curate content on WordPress, from how he aggregates and browses RSS feeds, to how he filters, edits and actually curates the content of each post.


Interestingly his focus is on quality, not on having his site populated by lots of "somewhat relevant" content pulled in automatically by one of the many "content marketing"-oriented curation tools available today.


I think you will find several interesting ideas that you may have not considered on how to approach your curation workflow, let alone checking the several insightful comments at the end.



Lost of valuable information, resources, examples and advice. 8/10

Working on our first WP site...integrating a blog, publish newsletter w/MailChimp...thanks for the info! Learn learn learn!

Robin Martin's comment, May 15, 2013 10:30 AM
Thank you so much Robin! This is good stuff!
Regina Torres's curator insight, January 24, 10:39 AM

Nathan Weller alude al uso de dos bookmarklets para curar contenidos. Se trata de Feedly y Tabcloud, herramientas interesantes que sirven para curar contenidos. Y es que no necesitamos un pluggin increíble para curar contenidos en nuestro Wordpress, sino que estos bookmarklets pueden hacer la misma función incluso de una manera más eficaz.
