Content Curators Playing A Larger Role Online

Content Curators Playing A Larger Role Online | Curation, Social Business and Beyond | Scoop.it

Tony Obregon wrote this piece on his blog - tonyobregon.com. It was curated by janlgordon covering her topic "Content Curation, Social Media and Beyond" on Scoopit 


Tony reminds us that content curators play a role in information overload - they take time to sort, select, comment on good content that helps keeps you current on your topic of interest.


Tony says:


"With the ever increasing amount of online information from social networks, the need for organizing it has never been greater. Look around and there’s no shortage of aggregation tools to help us filter out the important stuff."


Here's what caught my attention:


**In this world of information overload, there’s now a new layer in the media ecosystem: the curator. If it wasn’t for that person who retweeted the story in the first place, you probably wouldn’t have seen it.


**So naming the retweeters in daily promos is the right course of action. Twitter is like a fire hose and Paper.li is selecting random tweets that would have otherwise been missed.


**Yes, they’re randomly chosen but I find a lot of value in them because they praise others for their contributions.


**It reminds me that they’re part of my network and I can appreciate their contributions that much more. I know when I’m named in someone’s newspaper it motivates me to continue sharing that type of content.

StumbleUpon: A Human-Curated Discovery Engine

StumbleUpon: A Human-Curated Discovery Engine | Curation, Social Business and Beyond | Scoop.it
From Webpronews

StumbleUpon discussed how users can improve the quality of their own Stumbling experience in a blog post this week.

“As a human-curated discovery engine, StumbleUpon relies on our users to create a collection of the best content and information on the web,” said StumbleUpon Content Operations Program Manager Bruna De Goes. “We auto-magically identify most low-quality content, but sometimes nothing can beat the human brain’s ability to tell good content from bad"

4 Guaranteed Ways To Extend the Life of Your Content Online

4 Guaranteed Ways To Extend the Life of Your Content Online | Curation, Social Business and Beyond | Scoop.it

This post was written by Jonathan Houston for Memburn blog. Whether you're creating or curating content, there are some excellent suggestions to keep your content moving through multiple social channels and not disappearing into the thin air.


Excerpt:


"The almighty Google itself has proclaimed that fresh, relevant copy is like catnip for the king of the search jungle. In addition to search, it is what every successful site needs.


**But how long does copy remain fresh?"


Here are a few things that caught my attention:


**The subject of the content should be something that features in many searches


**Link to domains that carry authority on your subject matter. You as the author need to give Search Engines some reference points so that they can learn to trust you


**Write for your audience, not the mainstream. Speaking to your niche may make your audience smaller, but it will make your content more relevant


**Use your social networks to share your content. The more your content is shared, commented on, liked or asked for more information on the better it will do.


The bottom line is, "If visitors continue to interact with your content, it will remain forever young."

The New Klout Algorithm & How You Can Make It Work For You

The New Klout Algorithm & How You Can Make It Work For You | Curation, Social Business and Beyond | Scoop.it


This piece was written by Michael Q Todd and it's one of the best articles I've seen written about Klout in recent days.


I personally feel that your focus should be on consistently posting great content aimed at the right audience building community around your contribution and participation.


Whether we like it or not, Klout is not going away anytime soon and Michael has some good suggestions about how to build and maintain your Klout score. It will be interesting to see how Kred, (Klout's competitor) measures your online influence but for now, that remains to be seen.


Intro:


"It seems that your Klout score is now determined by your level of activity and attraction across all 12 of the networks they score. 


**My own score did not get “hit” nearly as hard as many did last week and I firmly believe that this is because I spend time and effort on places other than Facebook and Twitter.


I also believe Klout have it right here and that a multitude of places should be taken into account.


They have gone out on something of a limb here and staked their reputation on this highly different algorithm becoming more popular and meaningful.


I believe it will become so. I also believe that more and more networks will be added.


As something of a student of “influence online” my advice would be to get involved as much as you can in some of the “secondary networks” as they may not all be secondary forever and obviously Klout does not see them as secondary.

What Your Content Says About You In Social Media

What Your Content Says About You In Social Media | Curation, Social Business and Beyond | Scoop.it




An interesting article from Doug Rice for famousbloggers.net.


"If we define art as self-expression, posting is the new painting."  He cautions that the world


**will see who you are through your posts so you should make sure your personality is refelcted through your online persona.


This is what caught my attention:


'You are what you tweet


The messages you send out about yourself–be they Tweets, Facebook status updates, Foursquare check-ins, Flickr photos, YouTube videos, etc.–are an expression of who you are..... You are your content. What are you creating?


I link; therefore, I am


Social media isn’t just about you and your content, though. It’s about the external content that you identify with. It’s about the “Retweets”, the “Shares” and the “Stumbles.”


It’s about what you link. This, too, is an expression of who you are. When you high-five other content, you are signaling that you share the same values. You are what you share.


**What are you passing along?"
