Via Scoop.it – Content Curation, Social Media and Beyond
This is a great post, a content curator who is really dedicated to bringing value to their followers can “shape public opinion with the choices they make, the content they choose to include or pass by.”
So many great observations and clarification about this very rewarding job! Intro: A content curator is more than someone who re-posts links, quotes sources and aggregates content from feeds. A content curator uses their own passion for the topic to filter and give meaning to the content they select.
They also add their own information and ideas to the updates. I have worked as someone who collects content in several ways and methods: web directory editor, topic writer and group moderator. Each requires some aspects of content curating. Online content curators will not only present content but give it their own perspective and priorities. http://wordgrrls.com/2011/08/are-you-a-content-curator/
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
