  16. 16. Want to be a content curator?If you want to be a content curator, you should also follow afew rules offered by Rosenbaum: ○ If you don’t add context, opinion, or voice, and simply lift content, it’s stealing. ○ If you don’t provide attribution and a link back to the source, it’s stealing. ○ If you take a large portion of the original content, it’s stealing. ○ If someone asks you not to curate their material, and you don’t respect that request, it’s stealing. ○ Respect published rights. If images don’t allow Creative Commons use, reach out to the image creator—don’t just grab it and ask questions later. http://www.fastcompany.com/1834177/content-curators-are-the-new-superheros-of-the-
