Interesting to apply the concept of 'curator' - often associated with a museum - to content online. Given the proliferation of articles, resources and information available online at the click of a mouse, 'curating' and providing context is a sure way to make meaning for customers out of online chaos.
That notion is at the heart of Content Curation: Making Meaning Out of Chaos, a panel discussion taking place at Info360 in NYC on June 14 from 1:55pm to 2:40pm at Javits Center, in NYC. Joining me for this conversation are two content creation, curation and context experts:
Content Curation: Making Meaning Out of Chaos Description
Here's how I describe the Content Curation: Making Meaning Out of Chaos session:
Some say ‘content is king’. However, if customers ‘drown’ trying to find content and companies can’t be found because of content proliferation, the solution has more to do with content curation and making meaning out of existing content chaos rather than just creating more.
During this panel presentation, you will hear experts in content creation and content curation discuss how to bring meaning to content so end users/customers and businesses can actually connect.
- Learn why marketers use content curation and the resulting benefits
- Understand how content curation is evolving as content proliferates
- Explore best practices for content curation success
