Fueled by social media, with which even the search engines scrambling to keep up, the Web is now happening in real time. How can a small company stay competitive?

We’ve written about the social city and nightlife mobile app, buzzd, which pulls its data from Twitter and other buzzd users, for a bigger picture of the places that are hot in a given location. The startup just released an Android app in December and today is launching a new version of its iPhone and BlackBerry apps that integrates location-based services in the mix. The buzzd network compiles information from its base of over a half-million users, Twitter, and other real-time sources to provide users with activity updates for almost half a million venues across the United States, the U.K. and Canada. You download the app and it will bring up a list of venues close to you that are currently popular based on people talking about them on Twitter and Buzzd.

You’ve started a fan page for your company on Facebook. You’ve attracted a few followers on Twitter . You’ve got a presence on Foursquare , and you’ve started offering deals to customers through Groupon. Seems you’ve got that whole social media thing figured out. Or do you? While social media presents, first and foremost, a cheap marketing and advertising option to help businesses generate leads and drive up revenue, some experts insist it’s about more than just setting up a few profiles and then moving on.
Curation is becoming an increasingly important term and for good reason: the online world is increasingly messy, muddled and full of blind alleys. Search used to be the best way to navigate online but today it is only one part of an Internet user’s dashboard. Finding things is fine if you know what to look for, but search is increasingly less effective in judging the quality of links, or putting those links into a context.
Businesses both big and small are flocking to social media platforms such as Twitter, Facebook, YouTube and Foursquare. The fact is that a presence on these platforms not only allows companies to engage in conversations with consumers, but also serves as an outlet to drive sales through deals and coupons. And while major brands like Starbucks, Virgin, and Levi’s have been participating in the social web for some time now, the rate of adoption among small businesses is increasing too. According to a recent University of Maryland study, social media adoption by small businesses has doubled from 12% to 24% in the last year. But as these businesses look to Facebook and Twitter to connect with customers, many are finding that some strategies work and some do not produce results. We’ll be exploring these questions at a panel on Social Media and Businesses at our Social Currency CrunchUp on July 30.
Pour partager une passion ou une expertise sur le web, il y a eu les pages personnelles, les forums, puis les blogs, puis les micro-blogs puis les réseaux sociaux. Et maintenant il y a la curation, ou content curation, soit l’assemblage « intelligent » ou éditorialisé (ah merde, ce mot n’existe pas non plus dans mon dico Pour partager une passion ou une expertise sur le web , il y a eu les pages personnelles, les forums, puis les blogs, puis les micro-blogs puis les réseaux sociaux. Et maintenant il y a la curation, ou content curation , soit l’assemblage « intelligent » ou éditorialisé (ah merde, ce mot n’existe pas non plus dans mon dico Firefox) de contenus. J’en ai déjà parlé à l’occasion de mon récent compte-rendu sur le Web’10 . La curation de contenus pourrait être pour un individu « le blog pour les feignants » ou en tout cas pour ceux qui souhaitent avoir leur espace de connaissance sur la toile sans avoir le temps ni l’envie de bloguer.
What does real-time mapping with New York City public school kids look like? Recently, Digital Democracy was invited to work with 120 young people from all 5 boroughs as part of the Department of Education’s “Future Now” program . Having gone through the NY Public School system myself, I jumped at the opportunity to help them innovate. My task was to engage the kids in a conversation about what they’d like to see in the year 2020. Future Now is creating NYC’s Digital Storybook – a citywide youth project about school, community, and dreams. What better way to explore these themes than a mapping exercise to literally add and remove items in their communities and on their streets?
Flared music lets you visually research relationships between musicians and bands using the Musicbrainz database an online community resource that the BBC is working with to collate music information.The project uses a tree structure to display the results of search terms that you enter into it as a kind of musical family tree. For example submitting The Rolling Stones will grow a tree starting from the initial search term to show the individual band members such as Mick Jagger and Ronnie Wood, collaborators such as Billy Preston, and other information including wives and girlfriends. Further connections between individual members of the band fan out, as the search gets deeper.
Aggregation and curation: two concepts that explain a lot about digital change Every time I read a story about why newspapers are failing that doesn’t mention the role of aggregation and curation in their troubles, it reminds me that something very fundamental is being missed, even by very sophisticated observers. Aggregation is one of the core concepts of content presentation and commercialization. Any analysis of what happened to the record business, what is happening to newspapers, or the future of books and bookstores and magazines and TV that does not feature this concept prominently is almost certainly flawed. Aggregation, of course, simply means pulling together things which are not necessarily connected. Curation is a term that has always referred to the careful selection and pruning of aggregates, such as for a museum or an art exhibition.
Aggregation. Curation. Indexing.
