Infografía sobre curación de contenidos. Ya hemos hablado en otras ocasiones de la curación de contenidos y de la importancia que están teniendo las herramientas que nos ayudan a "cribar" la inmensa cantidad de recursos y materiales que nos ofrece cada día la red. Ofrecimos también un tutorial sobre Scoop.it, una herramienta que nos facilita mucho el trabajo. Hoy compartimos esta excelente infografía en blog de Ready4 Social para aquellos que necesitan aclarar este concepto. The role of curators in storytelling as tribal influencers and bankers. We are increasingly confronted by more and more content, and that is why many of us appreciate services that help us discover the gems.

Google tackles the problem with advanced search algorithms, but we also rely on brands and publishers. Another solution, to the problem, is the role of the curator. Do you want to learn what curating is? Please watch the video above. Many companies and organizations use influencers to help them reach out to people. Curators are an interesting breed of influencers. Curators as dumpster divers I was in a discussion with Olga Kravets, a netnographer, and she proposed that curators serve their tribe like dumpster divers. Something really interesting happens in the curation process, because stories don’t have intrinsic value. Curators represent a new type of tribal leadership that operates bottom-up and peer to peer.

Curators can be utilized by organizations as tribal translators, guides and messengers. Maria Popova: In a new world of informational abundance, content curation is a new kind of authorship. Editor’s Note: Maria Popova is the editor of Brain Pickings, a curation of “cross-disciplinary interestingness” that scours the world of the web and beyond for share-worthy tidbits. Here, she considers how new approaches to curation are changing the way we consume and share information. Last week, Megan Garber wrote an excellent piece on whether Twitter is speech or text. Yet despite a number of insightful and timely points, I’d argue there is a fundamental flaw with the very dichotomy of the question. While Twitter can certainly be both, it’s inherently neither. And trying to classify it within one or both of these conventional checkboxes completely misses the point that we might, in fact, have to invent an entirely new checkbox.

I, of course, make no claim to using Twitter as it “should” be used. Twitter as discovery Like any appropriated buzzword, the term “curation” has become nearly vacant of meaning. And lest we forget, text itself is an invention, a technology. Aquí, de omnibus dubitandum | Las dudas deleznables de una mente dispersa. Curator's ǝpoɔ. Introducing The Curator's Code: A Standard for Honoring Attribution of Discovery Across the Web. By Maria Popova UPDATE: Some thoughts on some of the responses, by way of Einstein. UPDATE 2: This segment from NPR’s On the Media articulates the project well — give it a listen. Ours is a culture and a time immensely rich in trash as it is in treasures.” ~ Ray Bradbury You are a mashup of what you let into your life.” ~ Austin Kleon Chance favors the connected mind.” ~ Steven Johnson As both a consumer and curator of information, I spend a great deal of time thinking about the architecture of knowledge.

Until today. I’m thrilled to introduce The Curator’s Code — a movement to honor and standardize attribution of discovery across the web. One of the most magical things about the Internet is that it’s a whimsical rabbit hole of discovery — we start somewhere familiar and click our way to a wonderland of curiosity and fascination we never knew existed. In both cases, just like the words “via” and “HT,” the respective unicode character would be followed by the actual hotlink to your source. * Pearltrees: Una herramienta para organizar, compartir, encontrar y visualizar información. Herramientas que nos faciliten el trabajo hay millones en la red, pero de vez en cuando se encuentran algunas que reúnen las cualidades que buscamos. Este es el caso de Pearltress un servicio gratuito que permite organizar la información que resulta de nuestra exploración en la red y a la vez funciona como marcador social, lo que la diferencia de otras herramientas de este tipo, es que utiliza la metáfora de una árbol de perlas para facilitar la categorización de los temas, los que a su vez se pueden subdividir mediante ramas.

De este modo, se obtiene una visualización de nuestra información en una suerte de mapa conceptual muy didáctico. Pearltress se suma ahora a mis herramientas favoritas para curación de contenidos, pero puede ser de gran utilidad en otras áreas como las educativas donde se puede usar para hacer mapas conceptuales multimedia ya que cada perla puede contener un URL, una foto o una nota.

Aside from a few well known examples like this one, however, the term curation has rarely been used outside of the world of art … until now. One of the hottest trends in social media right now is content curation – thanks in no small part to the leading efforts of several thought leaders actively promoting the idea.

Curación de contenidos: concepto, exigencias y oportunidades El acceso a la información ha superado, gracias a los avances tecnológicos, las limitaciones de antaño. Hoy estamos por el contrario expuestos a una intrincada red de datos que precisa de estrategias específicas para transformarlos en valor. La curación de contenidos es una de ellas y se refiere al proceso de seleccionar información relevante mediante una estrategia y criterios previamente trazados y encaminado a la obtención de un informe final.

Los datos no son nada si no hay alguien que les conceda sentido, si no hay un criterio detrás capaz de hacer las conexiones y conclusiones entre las distintas variables, si no existe en últimas, un marco de referencia que lo coordine. La ventaja de hacer curación es doble: además de seleccionar información, estimula la producción de nuevos contenidos que satisfacen también las exigencias de actualidad, pertinencia y calidad.

Move over, auto-tweets: This week, the BBC has switched its @BBCNews Twitter feed to all-human curation. (One small step for a news feed; one giant leap for newsfeedkind.) It’s a lot like the experiment The New York Times tried with human Twitter curation this spring…except that it’s not an experiment. It’s a new strategy. One that involves, at the moment, a team of four people working across three core Twitter feeds — @BBCNews, @BBCBreaking, and @BBCWorld. “We want to be tweeting with value,” Chris Hamilton, BBC News’ social media editor, told me of the move.

What the Times experiment and its analogues (the all-human @WSJ, for example) have made clear is that human-tweeted headlines are almost always more effective — more engaging, more inviting, more generally interesting — than headlines that are obviously auto-tweeted. Ultimately, “you’ve got to do it in a way that fits your brand,” Hamilton notes. Part of the strategy involves unique treatments for the BBC’s unique feeds. The Art of Curation, Part 1 : Being a Curator. Content curation » Search Results. Megan GarberFebruary 1, 2011 One of the biggest challenges in covering the unrest in Egypt — or, for that matter, in covering any event that’s in some way “foreign” — is determining who can provide relevant and accurate news about the event.

To curate content is in large part to curate expertise; faced with a frenzy of news updates — some of them true, some of them false, some of them in-between — how do you know which updates, and whose updates, to listen to? How do you know whom to trust? Sulia, a NYC-based startup, has made it a point to figure that out.

Using a combination of crowdsourcing, human editorial insight, and machine learning, Sulia creates topic channels, somewhat akin to news verticals, whose content is curated from experts in particular subjects — both broad (tech and science) and narrow (Ruby and Ruby on Rails), both of historical import (the protests in Egypt) and not so much (bacon).
