Digital content curation

Facebook Twitter

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. Comments(65) Projeqt: A Creative Storytelling Platform. By Maria Popova The new language of the creative polyglot, or what tweets have to do with portfolios. Much has been said over the past few years about the future of publishing and content on the web. Terms like “transmedia storytelling” and “cross-platform publishing” are tossed around like giant balls of cotton candy — delicious, fluffy but, ultimately, without much substance.

And while certain platforms have made multimedia storytelling possible for publishers and visual artists, none offers a truly holistic proposition. This week, the launch of projeqt offers hope for a platform that does it all and then some. Great stories keep us riveted to the page. We’re thrilled about the creative possibilities with projeqt. Though projeqt is currently in beta and invite-only, we’ve secured a limited number of invites for our newsletter readers — to request one, subscribe to our free weekly newsletter if you haven’t already, then shoot us an email with “projeqt” in the subject line.

David Karp, il mio Tumblr "Social network per creare

"Su Facebook vedi le cose che ho visto io, su Tumblr vedi attraverso i miei occhi. La differenza c'è" di SILVIO GULIZIA C'E' UN MONDO in cui ogni cosa è sempre quella, indipendentemente da chi la condivide. E un altro in cui la stessa racconta le emozioni di chi l'ha vista. Questi due mondi, nella visione del 25enne David Karp, sono Facebook e Tumblr, il "social network nato per caso" da lui fondato nel 2006 per superare il blocco dello scrittore che gli produceva la pagina bianca di Wordpress. "Conosci qualcuno che sia orgoglioso del proprio Facebook? Hanno iniziato a copiare e incollare elenchi di tumblelog nei propri post.

Ha inventato il re-blog un anno prima che Twitter introdusse il re-twitt.
