Curation Tools - The Hindu : Business News : Content curation tools: a means for information collationA new class of products called content curation tools has appeared in the highly volatile search service segment. This edition of NetSpeak discusses yet another trend blooming in the cyberspace.
Content curation has been getting a lot of attention recently. We’ve covered what it is, why it’s valuable and offered best practices on how to curate content on your own. Yet, if management systems can be designed to manage content, why not build one to curate content?

As the web becomes more and more inundated with blogs, videos, tweets, status updates, news, articles, and countless other forms of content, “information overload” is something we all seem to suffer. It is becoming more difficult to weed through all the “stuff” out there and pluck out the best, most share-worthy tidbits of information, especially if your topic is niche. Let’s face it, Google definitely has its shortcomings when it comes to content curation and the more it tries to cater to all audiences, the less useful it becomes.

‘Curation’ is a topic of many a conversation these days – from media properties to bloggers to even brands looking to add value to the story they tell and service they provide to their audience. However, the question of how to best record and track a real-time conversation stream related to a particular topic is still tricky – particularly in a continually-updated Twitter stream.
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. Even in the case of power-users utilizing RSS feed readers, aggregators and filters, the amount of junk we have to sift through daily is nothing but impressive, so much so, that those who have enough time and skills to pick the gems from that ocean of tweets, social media posts and blog posts, enjoy a fast increasing reputation and visibility online.
I keep hearing people throw around the word “curation” at various conferences, most recently at SXSW.

The term “curate” is the interactive world’s new buzzword. During content creation and governance discussions, client pitches and creative brainstorms, I’ve watched this word gain traction at almost warp speed. As a transplant from museums and libraries into interactive media, I can’t help but ask what is it about this word that deserves redefinition for the web?
Back in March I wrote a post about the seven needs of real-time curators . Over the next week or so no less than three companies are shipping services that will fulfill that dream with tools that comply with all seven needs.
