Do we need 20 curations sites and platforms to help us find good content? Swayy is yet another new curation platform and apparently it is from the author’s account at The Next Web, very very good.
I hope it is, and I do believe we need the right mixture of human and algorithm because well no one human can possibly keep up with finding, sorting, organizing and sharing all the latest and greatest content that is being produced on a daily basis.
With that said though, I do believe many sites are putting way to much emphasis on the algorithm part and not enough emphasis on the human part, and I do believe I am starting to get a clearer picture why.
Let me tell you something and I want to put it into context for you. Thought leadership people will come from humans not computers. If you want your relationships and thought leadership to come from computers, well you are in for a rude awakening.
So anyway without further ado here is the piece from The Next Web
What is Swayy? It’s like Percolate and LinkedIn recommended articles, mixed with trending keywords for the topics you find interesting, combined with an analytics dashboard that shows the trends of what you do and how people react to it. I like it for the simplicity and accuracy of the content curation. Everything I’m actually interested in reading is in one place – I don’t have to skip from another major tech blog over to Harvard Business Review then hop over to another major tech or business blog. It’s all in there. And it has saved me So Much Time
