News curation is the act of finding, grouping, organizing and sharing the most relevant and noteworthy news stories about specific topics of interest. Unlike traditional online news publishers (newspapers, magazines, TV networks) and blogs, which primarily create original content, news curators focus on finding (or cultivating)the best content that is already published.
Content curation is a great way to manage sharing content online and a great asset to your content marketing strategy.

Real-Time News Curation: Part 6 - The Tools and Technologies
Part III: Curation Types and Real-World Examples There exists many types of curation , and many ways to interpret what curation really is. As I have attempted to illustrate in Part II of this guide, in my own view, aggregation is automated and it is not the same as curation.
We are no longer just consumers of content , we have become curators of it too.
I have received a lot of emails from readers asking to illustrate more clearly what the actual typical tasks of a news curator are, and what are the tools that someone would need to use to carry them out.
The time it takes to follow and go through multiple web sites and blogs takes tangible time, and since most sources publish or give coverage to more than one topic, one gets to browse and scan through lots of useless content just for the sake of finding what is relevant to his specific interest.
