"Your submission awaits moderation." Whether you manage an online community or you’ve contributed to a website, you’re probably familiar with that phrase. The majority of websites accepting comments, images, and videos from users have a review mechanism in place to filter out content that violates their terms of service.
Content discovery has become so important that tools once used for other purposes have now integrated this feature into their offerings. Three of these tools that we’re going to explore today include Hootsuite, Buffer and Klout.
While content marketing is now the main focus of most marketing strategies, it has evolved and grown out of its original, singular focus. In fact, beyond creating content, content curation has emerged as another powerful weapon in a marketer's arsenal. Here are three benefits you may not have considered.
Proper content curation is wildy misunderstood by most bloggers and online marketers. There is a way to curate content that both saves you time, makes you more productive (remember that Google LOVES freshness now!), and that Google embraces as a legitimate way to do content that they will rank and respect.
It used to be that you were a wine or art collector to be considered a connoisseur. These curators of their personal taste and beauty would search for pieces that fit a collection they would be proud to show off to their friends. Here are 5 ways to become a modern day social connoisseur.
Curating content is less time-consuming than creating it, but it isn’t any less daunting. How do you decide which stories, sources and social updates to share? Of the trillions of pages (literally!) on the web, how do you find which ones will resonate most with your audience?
Having a steady flow of engaging and valuable content is a constant challenge for most businesses and brands. Finding relevant content to your business, posting it to your social media channels, and engaging with your audience around other organizations’ content can be amazing for your business’ social media channels for reasons of its own.
In the age of Information, the ability to “curate,” or gather and arrange content, becomes one of the most important skills you can have. After all, the information is out there for everyone to see. What makes you stand out from the crowd is how you locate and present it.
"Content curation" is a term that is widely used and poorly defined. For many people, social media curation includes an element of automation, which is ironic since it seems to me automation is the opposite of curation. This post is an exploration of what it means to curate and how we can beging to think more creatively and holistically about digital curation.
You may have noticed that content curation has grown very quickly as a way for people and organizations to publish on the Web. Sure, there are some benefits to this effort. But as a strategy for generating attention for yourself or your business, content curation is nowhere near as powerful as generating original content.
