Share

Written by : Tom George| 0 | Social Media

Welcome to The Internet Billboards, where we search the Internet for you daily and select some of the top articles and videos to post. We hope you enjoy the articles, and hopefully the information we select will help you to learn and be more successful online. This process of a human finding and presenting content is called content curation and it is undoubtedly the future of the Internet. Digital curation has really become necessary because of the vast amount of information that is currently online. With all this information it has simply become almost impossible for anyone to keep track of it all. As your content curator for the Internet Billboards I will be focusing on delivering important content on the five pillars of success, or should I say to be successful on the Internet. The five topics are content, inbound advertising, mobile media, networking, and social media. Enjoy.
