The Future Points To Curation In Broadcast Media

The Future Points To Curation In Broadcast Media | Curation, Social Business and Beyond | Scoop.it

This post was curated by Robin Good and JanLGordon. The original content was itself curated from a conversation between media strategist, trend spotter, anthropologist and consultant Jonathan Marks with journalist and fellow anthropologist Gemma van der Kamp, sharing views on the future of broadcasting.


It's interesting how Robin and I were both drawn to different aspects of this article.


What follows are examples of what the author refers to as "re-treatment" of content and of conversation.  This is both a "re-treatment of curation" and the engagement of a conversation between Curators.


I would further point to our different approaches as defining the importance of collaboration and to how re-treatments of the same material may result in the original material having broader context and being seen by more people, as our approaches stand to be seen by slightly divergent audiences.


**This is not unlike the different audiences that may be reached by journalists and news organizations curating the same material to their respective readership. 


Excerpt:


When Jonathan Marks advises broadcasters on how to integrate emerging technologies in the work flow, he is driven by one major principle:


**making sure that the conversation with the public is happening.


In an era when the voice of the online citizen is more present than ever before, the idea may seem obvious but according to Marks, there is still much work to do.


In Marks’ view, broadcasters need to work cross-media,


**by adapting their content to mobile phones, websites and tablet devices.


**The idea of curating the news by cherry-picking good stories through web research and by using the audience’s input seems promising.


**The technology to curate stories, however, is still inadequate.



**Although various online tools to organise and share content have been developed, such as the Pearltrees application allowing users to collect, share and re-treat online content,


**“the problem is that once the link is re-treat, you have lost the original content”, Marks argues.


**“What we need are tools to build libraries and create intelligent tags. So many excellent stories are never kept.”


Several small companies already offer news briefing services and successfully manage active online communities.


They understand the trick of building niche channels and developing relations of trust with the audience.


This is where the future for broadcast media lies,” Marks predicts.

NewsTrust Curators add the fact-check business with Truthsquad

We have so many people posting content and information and this is a service whose time has definitely come!

Just in time for the 2012 elections, the cottage industry of media fact-checking is ramping up. That latest addition is Truthsquad, which began last year as a pilot project of NewsTrust.

Truthsquad will be working on two fronts, on its website and on embeddable widgets for stories on any news site. In both cases readers could either suggest or assess statements for their truth (or truthiness), which would require supporting facts and links to make a determination.

Through the partnership with the Center for Public Integrity, Truthsquad will have a handful of journalists providing fact checks as well as a community manager to give readers guidance on how to verify information and identify reliable sources.

“We don’t expect citizens to be better than journalists — we know an experienced journalist can get more work done,” he said. “But just getting citizens to participate in it will help them develop more of an open mind, build their research skills and appreciate the value of looking at different perspectives.”

Will Twitter Become The Twitter News Network ?

This was posted by Gordon Macmillan on The Wall Blog


Curated by JanLGordon covering Content Curation, Social Media & Beyond


Great discussion here between futurists Ross Dawson and Gerd Leonhard of The Futures Agency discussing where Twitter is going."


In this talk, both Gerd Leonhard & Ross Dawson say the Twitter News Network will become bigger than CNN. Right now CNN is using a combination of Youtube, Skype and Twitter to deliver the most up to breaking news as it happens, this is only the beginning, it will be interesting to watch this unfold.

Bravo!! This is a home run and definitely another example of how curating content and information for your audience adds value, encourages interaction and builds relationships.



The Importance of Brand Journalism

Why My Mom Invented Social Media

As Brian Solis stated in a recent blog entry, “social media has never been about the technology as much as it has been governed by social science.” There you have it! Brian Solis has just confirmed that my mom invented social media.

No, my mom’s last name is not Winklevoss or Zuckerberg. She is not on Facebook. She is not on Twitter. But starting when I went to college some eleventy-seven years ago, she started mailing me articles that she thinks I might like. “Thought you might be interested in this” she’ll scrawl on the top of an article in the Wall Street Journal that she has ripped out of the Marketplace section. This is social media at its core. And she still does this.
