Future of Crowdsourcing: Creation to Curation, Search to Synthesis, Content to Things

18,522

Published on

Three trends are defining the future of crowdsourcing:

1. Input: From asking community members to create original contributions to curating contributions that already exist elsewhere.
2. Output: From searching for the best contributions from community members to synthesizing contributions from community members into something new.
3. Focus: From crowdsourcing content like ideas, designs or software to crowdsourcing things like money, products or services.
