A Comprehensive Guide to Content Curation

Depending on your point of view, content on the internet can be a vast collection of treasures, a cesspool swimming in filth, or a big pile of gold specks mixed in with an even bigger pile of dirt.  My guess is that most people lean towards the last one, giving rise to content curation, the process of finding the gold among the dirt, as a very popular online activity.

At its most basic, content curation is the process of finding, organizing, and presenting content from the flood of information and media that inundate the web by the second.  Similar to museum curators, content curators sift through a seemingly never-ending amount of digital objects to unearth individual items worthy of being showcased for a specific audience.  Once the selection is finished, the curator presents those assembled elements under a cohesive theme, just like museum curators do for specific exhibitions.

WHAT CONTENT CURATION ISN’T

Content curation isn’t about creating new content, just like a museum creator has no hand in creating the artifacts she decides to put on display.  Instead, it’s about finding and organizing existing content for presentation under a meaningful context.

It’s not about indiscriminately collecting content (that’s aggregation, like what an RSS reader does), either, just as a museum curator doesn’t simply point to any object in a warehouse when deciding which artifacts will be included for a particular show.  Instead, curation entails making a critical evaluation of whether a piece of content fits into the context it’s going to be presented under.

It helps to think of a content curator as someone who’s editing a print magazine.  He gets 100 articles from his staff and 100 images from his photographers, all ready for publishing, except the magazine only has enough space to accommodate a quarter of that content.  His task, then, is to sift through all 200 items and decide which ones will be published in order to serve the audience’s best interest.  Except, in this case, the editor is dealing with the near-infinite amount of online content.

THE NEED FOR CONTENT CURATION As the internet has grown, so has the amount of original content it has made available to the world.  While Google and other services have provided a way to sift through all this content to find the ones you need, it’s still easy to miss particularly good content when it’s buried under the heap of millions upon [...]

PatrickCoolProfilePic 108 Date: Thursday 8:30 am WHO AM I AND WHY SHOULD YOU LISTEN Actually, I am no one you ever heard of before unless you are in the circles of wordpress plugin creators. I have built plugins for myself that save me a ton of time and make my life a lot easier so I can spend more time with my family. After all that is what we all want, RIGHT?I have decided to share some of my treasures with you over the next few months and this is but one of the many we will be launching soon. Enough about me. If what you see does not sell itself then any more about me is wasted space. I am sure you are a lot like me but if not you still need GREAT Curated Content for your website.  WHY? —– See what Matt Cutts, from Google, has to say:"Curated content can be published on a very regular basis without much effort. Yet similar to created content, curated content can be very relevant and informing for the end reader if its done properly. Each piece of created content can serve as link bait to increase your search engine ranking.  On the other hand for curated content, an individual piece of content may not attract a lot of inbound links, but a curated site as a whole may be viewed as a go-to resource and may attract links"  SO, I HATE LONG AND FANCY SALES LETTERS  —  I Really Hate Them!!!!!! If you see what I have to share with you and it does not move you to want the exact system that is saving ME a ton of time and helping me to create great SEO content for my pages then bless you. I need to learn from you. I created this for me and have been using it myself and only a few friends I let use it recently. INTRODUCING 30 SECOND CONTENT CURATOR [...]

Content Curation the Final Frontier: Collaborative Filtering Was Just the First Step

tl;dr Contextual machine learning will improve the quality of recommended and shared content. File 39970 The hungrier we are, the better everything tastes. In response to our disproportionate demand for quantity of content — our supply has been of questionable quality. Many social media updates are bland, boring, or off-topic, posted for the sole purpose of maintaining presence and feeding the content beast.

Every platform is responding to our collective hunger pains. Most are responding with a combination of behavioral and popularity-based content recommenders (collaborative filtering). They primarily utilize popularity and user interaction to drive decisions. There is certainly merit to this approach — behavioral-based product suggestions are great. Amazon for example, associates your voyeuristic enthusiasm for high-impact resistant HD cameras with the Phantom Drone 2.

Collaborative filtering fails to identify new and esoteric content with few user interactions.

In order to identify unique content at scale, we need an approach that actually reads content before recommending. Recommenders that primarily consider user interaction are indifferent to the actual substance of the text. They are over and under-inclusive, too much noise and too few gems. It’s difficult to recommend content that has few user interaction data points associated with it. Thus, new content recommendations tend to be generalized noise, in contrast to the highly-precise recommendations of well established content.

The problem for the content consumer is clear — information exchange has become so congested with irrelevant noise that we’ve come to expect a homogenized blur of content in our news and social feeds. The triumph of content mediocrity.

With the deluge of content online, the challenge may be even greater for those looking to differentiate themselves as valuable contributors among their peers.

IntelliButler takes a substance first approach.

We call it substance first because it’s substance IntelliButler examines and content IntelliButler cares about.

Few content suggestors read what they recommend, but IntelliButler does.

How IntelliButler Works: IntelliButler is a machine learning natural language processor. Exploring the inter-webs, IntelliButler evaluates written articles on a quest to offer you the smartest content. He’s not Google. He regularly examines content from several hundred sources and all content the IB community submits for textual analysis.IntelliButler identifies potential content for distribution and consumption by comparing it to his knowledge base. If the association of an article is sufficiently strong it’s classified within a category and [...]

7 Must Have Features of a Content Curation Tool

The profusion of Content Curation tools and Content Marketing tools in the marketing may be overwhelming. Specially if you are just new in the block of Social Media or trying to get things nice and working and still keeping time for your other tasks.

We try to talk to our customers as much as we can, and we asked them what are their “must have” features for a Content Curation tool. We contrasted these data with some posts (most things matched) on this theme and this is what we got: 7 Must Have Features of a Content Curation Tool What a professional looks for when s/he choosing a Content Curation tool? 1. Has to provide you good content

This is the absolute number one. Otherwise, why bother on a Content Curation tool?

The whole purpose of using one of these tools is to save time, right? Researching for content is a terrible time drainer, and provides huge gaps for distraction and procrastination.

For marketers, the content must be :

- Relevant (i.e, about the keywords and themes they talk about/ their brand is about)

- From multiple sources . These tools, as they use other algorithms to search the web, widen your search power and help you discover new sources and pages, outside your filter bubble. 2. Has to be consistent

The good content must be delivered in a regular basis . It’s really frustrating to arrive at a content tool dashboard and see the same old contents you had the other day. And if you curate a topic that is hard to find, it’s a relief to know that the tool will certainly have found something new and good.

A content curation tool has to be trustworthy and deliver what they promise. 3. Gives you space to add your insight.

Being a Content Curator or using your brand profile as a voice for this kind of content demands you have space to add your own thoughts and perspectives.

How else you are becoming a thought leadership? By thinking and writing, at least a little bit your unique view of the subject. It’s a good thing a content curator that turns the spotlights to YOUR BRAND.Providing a space, or at least some integration with other platforms (maybe your blog or your website) than current social media is a must. 4. You’ve got the POWER. The curator and only the curator should have the final [...] Like this post? Subscribe [...]
