Content Curation for Non-Profits

One of my favorite social media marketers who writes about (and speaks on) the topic of social media for non-profits is Beth Kanter (@Kanter). Yesterday, Beth published an article called "How Nonprofits Get Significant Value from Content Curation."


Since we are planning a Social Media Conference for Non-Profit Organizations and Professionals on February 6th, 2014, I thought her article was particularly timely, as content curation is often tied in closely with social media marketing.

What is content curation?

Beth says it is,

"sifting through information on the web and organizing, filtering and making sense of it and sharing the very best content with your network...Content curation is not about sharing links as you find them. It is finding great stuff amid the noise, annotating it, organizing it, and adding your wisdom or perspective and sharing a collection of curated links in a context or time that adds value."

Beth then provides a lot of frameworks for thinking about content curation and sharing. It's a great post. Read it here, and tell Beth what you think on Twitter at @Kanter.
