  • 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.  A content curator cherry picks the best content that is important and relevant to share with their community. It isn’t unlike what a museum curator does to produce an exhibition:   They identify the theme, they provide the context, they decide which paintings to hang on the wall, how they should be annotated, and how they should be displayed for the public.

  • Unfortunately, the web has a lot more of this ….
  • There’s so much information on the web that is measured in exabytes …
  • Let’s do the math on Facebook for second …800 million users on Facebook x average user shares 90 pieces of content x 12 months … and you get the picturehttp://www.flickr.com/photos/dkalo/4815259737/sizes/z/in/photostream/
  • And that has lead to another problem – the way we consumer information – mindless, mind numbing information .. We need to go on an information diet – we need to Become more mindful, conscious consumers of information … and that is what the content curator does …
  • In the industrial workplace, our training programs could prepare us for years of work, but much of what we learn today will be outdated in months or even weeks.http://www.flickr.com/photos/elitepete/442095833/sizes/l/in/photostream/
  • You can be the Elvis of your nonprofit topic area … Doing content curation can help develop thought leader and brand visibility are the primary reason for nonprofit marketers to adopt content curation -

  • Bruce Lesley is one of a growing number of  nonprofit executive directors and senior leaders that use Twitter.  And, he isn’t tweeting about what he ate for breakfast or one of his personal passions, basketball.   He uses Twitter to curate information related to his organization’s mission and work as a bipartisan advocacy organization dedicated to making children and families a priority in federal policy and budget decisions.   He also uses content curation for sources for his guest blogging.     His use of Twitter (and his organization’s use of Twitter and all communications channels for that matter) serve this intent:First Focus is working to change the dialogue around children’s issues by taking a cross-cutting and broad based approach to federal policy making. In all of our work, we seek to raise awareness regarding public policies impacting children and ensure that related programs have the resources necessary to help them grow up in a healthy and nurturing environment.If you take a look at Bruce Lesley’s Twitter stream, you will see that he is curating information on public policies impacting children.   Bruce does his own curating, using Google Reader and FlipBoard.   Any individual or nonprofit organization can curate information using these tools.  They can make it strategic by linking the information to their mission.   But what is the secret sauce to doing it well?
