If content curation is working for you, then your next challenge is going to be scaling your effort to support more curated topics and maybe even more sites. One of the key design goals of MyCurator is to support your efforts to scale your curation process.
The ‘Filter’ Challenge
As this author points out, one of the challenges is to ‘filter’ the immense amount of information that you can gather. MyCurator’s training capability is aimed squarely at making this process easier. By training MyCurator to do your filtering you are able to read through a much wider variety of source material.
Expanding your Content Discovery
Another key aspect of curation is to be continually expanding your sources of content. As you browse the web and follow twitter and other social media posts, you’ll invariable find some new content. The MyCurator Get It bookmarklet tool lets you immediately post this content to your training page for future curation.
Sometimes though, you will also want to add this blog or site to your sources to capture future posts too. In the next release of MyCurator, we are adding a Source It bookmarklet that will let you capture the feed and save it to your sources through a simple bookmarklet. When you are looking at a site and want to add it to your sources, you just click the new bookmarklet, choose the Link Category for the source and you are done. It will now automatically be read by MyCurator for each Topic which uses that Link Category.
There is a new trend in the Internet Marketing industry that is content curation. One of the biggest problem involved in content curation is the scalability of the current human-based curation processes. Usually there are 2 approaches to content curation: human based and computer assisted.
