Content is King: we've heard this sentence so much that for a lot of us it can become a factor of stress and frustration. Are you suffering content FOMO? Relax: content curation is here to the rescue. And here's how to make it practical and easy through hands-on best practices and tips as well as free or freemium tools to stop worrying about not doing enough with content.

These are the slides of the talk our Co-Founder & CEO, Guillaume Decugis, gave at the Social Media for Non-Profits conference on June 11, 2014 at the Microsoft campus in Mountain View.
