Content Curation: What is it?

Content curation is the process of sorting through the vast amounts of content on the web and presenting it in a meaningful and organized way around a specific theme.

The work involves sifting, sorting, arranging, and publishing information.

Content curators identify the theme, they provide the context, decide which piece of information to be included, how they should be annotated, and how they should be displayed for the public.

Content curation is not about collecting links, it is more about putting them into a context with organization, annotation, and presentation.

Content curation does include generating content, but instead, amassing content from a variety of sources, and delivering it in an organized fashion.

Best content curation uses various social media platforms – not just one among Twitter (the easiest one) or web links or photos or YouTube videos.

By Pawan Deshpande

More and more people are looking to content curation to help them navigate today’s chaotic online world. Key findings of 2012 Content Curation Adoption Survey:

  • Growing quantity led to sinking quality: The explosion of information on the Web has led to an overwhelming amount of content, making it more challenging to locate the best and most relevant.
