Social Hubs & UGC Curation Tools To Surface and Filter Your Fans Best Content

Social Hubs & UGC Curation Tools To Surface and Filter Your Fans Best Content | Content Curation World | Scoop.it
Robin Good's insight:



"Brands know that users share content. In fact, users create and share original content more than any other time in the history of civilization. And, brands understand that there’s an opportunity to surface and collect content related to the brand experiences." 


For this very purpose, a growing number of content curation tools allow brands to gather, aggregate, filter and select the most relevant and interesting content posted by their own fans.


Rebelmouse and Tint are two such examples, but there are several more "social curation" tools that can be of help on this front.


Lindsay Howard provides a short but quite useful introduction to four such tools and to their key traits and characteristics.


  1. EngageSciences
  2. Crowdtap
  3. Curalate Fanreel
  4. Pixlee Photorank 



Informative. Resourceful. 7/10

The Future Of Content Curation Tools - Part I

The Future Of Content Curation Tools - Part I | Content Curation World | Scoop.it
Content curation tools are in their infancy. Nonetheless you see so many of them around, there are more new curation tools coming your way soon, with lots of new features and options.
Robin Good's insight:



I have been testing and trying so many different content curation tools that I have been developing a good sense of what is needed most when it comes to searching, collecting, organizing and presenting information collections online.


In this two-part article I have outlined what I expect to be the most relevant changes and innovations that will be likely integrated in the content curation tools already available out there or that will become the key foundations for new ones that are yet to appear.


My article doesn't pretend to be a guide or a comprehensive catalogue of all the features that content curation tools should consider integrating, but simply an exploratory journey into some of the areas and features where I see a need for better support and where I expect to be surprised the most next.


Follow me in this short journey and add to the comments what are your personal expectations and needs on this front.

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"
