Social Curation Analysis
When people share content on the web via social media sites, and all this content is analyzed to produce a meaningful topic or thematic sequence, it is then known as social curation. Social curation deals with mining rich content from social sites, as well as article directories to better search results, as well as provide rich content for the person who searches for the same. It works by collecting mass crowd sourced information on the web, which is then filtered or analyzed manually for relevance.
This could be in the form of having users’ advice on whether the piece of content is rich or not. The filtered relevant content is then ranked according to the social popularity of the theme. The end result then gets to the top of search engine pages when a search is made on the topic, and this is where streams of traffic is generated for data visualization.
There are different ways in which social curation is handled. The first way of analyzing data for social curation is by reading the content first. Through reading, one can rate whether the content is rich or not. When users like a piece of content, they are then allowed to follow, vote or share the content with other people. Through sharing and following, this piece of content gets higher ranks, and more users can see it. It is then where discussions on or about the piece of work are held to determine its relevance. Analysts are then allowed to vote or contribute on what they think about the content. This generally translates to the whole process of social curation for richer content on the web.
Use of Social Content Curation
Media organizations take great advantage on social curation. This is because they use this content to connect to fans from far and wide, as well as augment and promote participation in field activities. Social curation is also used by media organizations to showcase as well as influence other organizations into participating with them in selected activities. Although it works in an almost similar way to search engine optimization, social curation creates an almost possible path for top ranks in the engines. Although search engines use algorithms to display such results based on relevance, curation does it better by involving more persons to speculate and analyze content manually for better and informed results. Through liking and sharing of this information, it becomes more visible to persons across the web and the fun part is that, it helps engines deliver higher quality information and content for the organizations too.

Through curated social content, companies can interlink with experts and persons who will bring more value into the company thus greater influence to the market.
