Over at her blog, Laura’s posted about content curators. Unlike content creators, content curators filter and organize the content others have created — using their own passion and information to shape and give meaning to the resource (web directory, social media topic expert, “lens” editor, etc.) they are creating.
As Laura notes, “A content curator can shape public opinion with the choices they make, the content they choose to include or pass by.” Placement in such curated resrouces affects not only individual readers, but systems such as search engines.
Have you identified which curated resources you, your blog, etc., must be in?
Have you contacted those curators which ought to know about you, your site, your business?
If there’s not really a great resource, why not start one?
