Internet Billboards The Power of Content Management Inbound Advertising
Content curation is a huge deal on the web today. As content on the web grows exponentially, our ability to make sense of it is inversely proportional. In other words, we are fast sinking under the sheer amount of content pouring onto the web every day. The social web hasn’t made life any easier on content production either – in fact its lowered the barrier to entry. According to Facebook, 30 billion pieces of content (web links, news blogs etc) are shared each month on the social network, with no sign of slowing. Right now it seems that content curation, and curation platforms are going to be an area of growth on the web.

Pearltrees as collaborative curational mindmapping tool
By Dan Berrett Academics have become frequent visitors to Zuccotti Park, the 33,000-square-foot pedestrian plaza in the heart of New York City's financial district that is now the site of a nearly monthlong protest, Occupy Wall Street. Famous scholars like Cornel West, Slavoj Zizek, and Frances Fox Piven have spoken to the crowd, with their remarks dispersed, word-for-word, from one cluster of people to the next through a "human megaphone." Many others, such as Lawrence Lessig, have lent their support from farther away, as the demonstrations have spread to cities and college campuses nationwide. The movement has repeatedly been described as too diffuse and decentralized to accomplish real change, and some observers have seen the appearances by academic luminaries as an attempt to lend the protest intellectual heft and direction. Certainly, its intellectual underpinnings and signature method of operating are easier to identify than its goals. Three days after the protests began, Mr. Mr.

The more familiar something looks, the less threatening it seems. This is why images of funny-looking college students marching up Broadway or shirtless boys banging on drums comprise the bulk of the imagery we see of the Occupy Wall Street movement. Stock brokers look on, police man the barricades, and what appears to be a traditional protest movement carries on another day, week, or month. But “Occupy” is anything but a protest movement. Now don’t get me wrong. The occupiers are actually forging a robust micro-society of working groups, each one developing new approaches - or reviving old approaches - to long running problems. This is just one reason why Occupiers seem incompatible with current ideas about policy demands or right vs. left. The Occupiers have formed working groups to tackle a myriad of social and economic issues, and their many occupation sites serve as beta testers of the approaches they come up with.
Douglas Rushkoff: *not a Protest but a Prototype
Eind augustus berichtten we al over de extreem hoge schulden van studenten in de Verenigde Staten. Het schuldenbedrag van studenten is hoger dan het totale bedrag aan creditcardleningen en economen vrezen voor een nieuwe bubbel. Ook bij de Occupybeweging op Wall Street zitten veel studenten die na hun studie te kampen hebben met een torenhoge schuld, maar geen baan kunnen vinden. Volgens onderzoek van The College Board, een non-profit organisatie ter bevordering van excellentie en redelijkheid in het onderwijs, komen studenten van publieke scholen met een schuld van ruim 22.000 te zitten na hun studie. De kans op een baan slinkt echter nog steeds. Obama en de zijnen hebben nu een plan om iets aan deze problematiek te doen.

10 Powerful Tools for the Busy Content Curator
Curation seems to be the new trend in online journalism. Not many users have the time to read millions of tweets or watch dozens of Youtube videos each day. Journalists can become curators of these art pieces of modern news media by picking out the most interesting user generated postings. A great tool for that is storify.com – I wrote about it some weeks ago. Cloud computing is great – but I rather prefer to have as much control over my content as possible. Here is a list what you need: 1. It’s not a graphic but a text – so, your visitors can copy or retweet it with just one click: Yes, It's True: Ben & Jerry's Introduces 'Schweddy Balls' Ice Cream Flavor 2. You want to add a video from Youtube, Vimeo, Google Video, Flickr and other platforms to your post? 3. I really like this plugin (download it here)! 4. MapPress is a simple and slim plugin to add Google Maps to your blog (download it here). If you need more functions try XML Google Maps.

6 Content curation apps for the iPad
It's always great to discover new things all by yourself, but often curated content that's brought to you from links your networks have shared is a much quicker and more efficient way to consume all kinds of news, rather than spending hours browsing all around the web for it. There are many who would argue that if you're using Twitter "right" (I hate it when people say there's a right or wrong way to use a social network) you don't need a separate app or service and you can glean all of the important stuff directly from your stream. However, one of the reasons so many people buy iPads is because content is often tailored to look SO DAMN GOOD on them, an appeal many of our favourite content curation apps have perfected. We've collected together our top 6 content curation apps specially for the iPad and although they all do a similar job and rock the grid-like look, they're all unique in their own special way too.
Finding and Sharing great content is very time consuming. But we all have plenty of times on our hands. I don’t think so…. Social Media eats into our time every day and it’s getting worse! Content curation tools are available to help. Content curation is the process of filtering through content to find the best content. So here are some content curation tools that will save you time finding great content. Note: Make sure also to read the essential effective guide to content sharing. 1. In Scoop.it you create boards of content around specific topics and then add content to these boards. When you use Scoop.it other real people find content for you. Here’s an example of a board I created for top social media posts. 2. Imagine that you missed a really great conference but you heard that someone ‘storified’ it. This summary could include tweets, Facebook updates, pictures, videos and much more. So you get a story about the conference. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. Final Comments You know we love comments.

LinkedIn Shows You Who Visits Your Profile — and Then Some
LinkedIn updated the "who's viewed your profile" section of its platform on Monday, adding personalized tips for how users can generate more profile views. The new layout includes more detailed analytics about which LinkedIn members visit your profile page. Now users will be able to see which industries their viewers work in, and whether or not those who view their profile share the same job title. For example, if a dozen people with the title "recruiter" view your page, LinkedIn will now break out that data. Before, users could only see how often their profile was viewed, and a list of some of the most recent members who had checked out their page. In addition to the new analytics tools, users will also see tips on how to ensure their profile receives more views. One simple way to achieve more views is to add a profile photo. The new "who's viewed your profile" section will start rolling out to English users starting Monday with more languages to follow, according to a blog post.
LinkedIn Links to Behavior | DDI
A first-of-a-kind study uncovers online profile connections to performance. Social networking sites can reveal a lot about a person, but do they offer insight and value to the hiring manager? How do they measure up when compared with the best candidate selection systems? To investigate the application value of online profile data, our team delved into LinkedIn. We chose LinkedIn because, unlike Facebook and Twitter, the networking site is career-focused and relatively free of personal, non-work-related clutter. In addition, LinkedIn has become increasingly ubiquitous. Data Meets Data Our study could not have been conducted without access to DDI’s robust database. Our first area of inquiry: What can be learned about someone’s real-life work style from their online profile? Next, we asked if the profile information related to on-the-job performance. Our results also support the adage that it is better to give than to receive. Conclusions and Caveats

Wiki is a Hawai'ian word meaning "fast" or "quick." As a technology platform, Ward Cunningham installed the very first wiki on the Web in 1995. That was two years before the word "weblog" was coined (and four years before that term was shortened to "blog"). The reasons to use wikis remain the same as ever: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. Despite all the benefits of wikis -- from ease-of-use to collaborative workspaces, they're still viewed by some as confusing and unwieldy. With a wealth of other Web 2.0 tools, collaborative software, and content management systems to choose from, many argue that wikis are "passe." But in some ways, it just seems that wikis suffer from an image problem. Harvard's Nieman Lab recently looked at the successes of Wikipedia, asking why that project was successful while so many other collaborative encyclopedias have failed.

Benefits of content curation
Yesterday, I did a free NTEN Webinar called “The Unanticipated Benefits of Content Curation: Reducing Information Overload” based on my feature article in the NTEN Change Journal in June with the same title. (You can register and download the issue here for free and listen to the webinar recording here) The main idea is that good curation skills can build staff expertise and avoid the pain of information overload. I covered the basics of content curation, how it differs from social sharing, the art and practice of curation, a frameworks to get started, examples of nonprofits using curation, the tools, and some techniques for minimizing information overload and managing attention. I pulled together a curated summary of the tweets and resources on Storify that you can view here. With over 600 people registered for the Webinar, it was hard to answer all the questions as the chat stream just flew by and the 90 minutes was up before we knew it. A good curator also knows their audience.

Content Curation Tools: 21 Criteria To Select And Evaluate Your Ideal One
Nonetheless we are just at the beginning of a new era, in which content curation will be as important as search, there is already an apparent abundance of content curation tools of all kinds. Photo credit: Hand filling out checklist on clipboard with a pen by Shutterstock To the superficial eye, many such curation tools also appear to be very similar to one another, especially if evaluated exclusively from the type of news streams or visual collections that can be produced with them. On the other hand it is not realistic for someone to go out and test each and every one of the available solutions. For these reasons, it is quite difficult and time consuming to select and identify the most appropriate content curation tool for a specific need and as a consequence most rely on the tools they have tried and that satisfy their basic needs but remain quite ignorant about what options they are leaving on the table only because they have not yet tried them. 1) Import and Export functions Conclusions
