Via Scoop.it – Content Curation, Social Media and Beyond
Content curation is the art and science of finding and sharing quality content on a specific topic. Curation helps you build an audience. You then have a larger group of people with whom to share your own content, and who can spread the word.
Many among the Twitterati have built their followings in large part through content curation. Jason Falls of Social Media Explorer publicly states his Twitter strategy is “find good shit and share it.” Talk about a commitment to content sharing! With the endlessly flowing Twitter stream, you have to tweet at least semi-frequently to maximize visibility.
Many content curators tweet eight or even 10 times daily. Content sharing is today’s preferred method of content curation. And it works. 25% of tweets contain link s, but 56% of retweets contain links . Hmmm.
I have applied a keen eye for blending cultural trends, the right people and emergent industries to create dynamic new businesses in cable TV, internet and currently mobile media and marketing services for local and national companies.
I was an associate publisher for three startup magazines in New York. I helped brand and position these magazines in the marketplace through promotions at trade shows, advertising and special events
