Reddit: the front page of the internet. Digg - What the Internet is talking about right now. Real Time Search - Social Mention. Mashpedia, the real-time encyclopedia. Kurat. Lazy Bugger’s Guide to Content Curation. The future of search may not just be about Google and Bing. In the future of search, believe it or not, there are going to be a lot of people like you and me who will be providing much more helpful information guidance to specific requests than Google could ever do.

I know this sounds probably unrealistic to you, but I think there are now many good indications that this likely going to happen much sooner than you expect. One of the key reasons why, human beings will start to reclaim this highly valuable search territory, is the fact that in the last few years we have slowly but deeply surrendered our ability to evaluate, decide and select what is "real" to Google's own algorithms, in ways that can only be detrimental to us. You have probably read in recent times that Google is moving to use "semantic search" rather than the keyword-based approach it has been using until now. Do you know that "in semantic search, the decisions are not based on statistics, but rather on world models"? 20 best-kept secrets for finding content to share.

Whether you're a brand or an individual, consuming and sharing unique content is the best way to maintain your online freshness.

20 best-kept secrets for finding content to share

Although the Web is a big place, locating quality content that is original is no easy task. A good example is anything published by Mashable. Yes, Mashable serves up quality content on a regular basis, but due to its large readership and avid fan base, sharing Mashable content isn't especially useful as the communities you operate in have probably read and shared the article. So, what's the answer? There's no silver bullet solution to this challenge, but there are some great online information sources that can help.

Here are 20 that I refer to on a regular basis: YouTube Trends Dashboard. Business Insider's “Chart Of The Day.” . +1's / Likes / Favorites. TweetDeck columns. Extension Factory. Networks. Niche social news sites. Bookmarking sites. Hub Pages (Topics). 30+ Cool Content Curation Tools for Personal & Professional Use. 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. The demand for timely, relevant content that is specific to our unique interests and perspectives has given rise to a new generation of tools that aim to help individuals and companies curate content from the web and deliver it in a meaningful way. These new tools range from simple, application-specific types such as social media aggregators and discovery engines, to more complex, full-blown publishing solutions for organizations.
