Curata’s definition of content curation is as follows:
Content curation is when an individual (or team) consistently finds, organizes, annotates, and shares the most relevant and highest quality digital content on a specific topic for their target market.”
At its best, curation is:
Performed by a person, not simply a computer algorithm.
Being discerning, discriminative, and selective.
Added value. You offer perspective, insight, guidance.
Not a one-time event or activity.
Informed by a laser focus on your audience.
