In this blog post, Too busy to blog? 3 tips for curating social media, from the Nashville Business Journal, blogger Dov Hirsch offers three tips for curating social media.
The most important tip is #2, Don’t steal. It’s very important that you give appropriate credit for the content you’re curating. You should always link back to the original post or article. If you decide to pull some content to highlight, you should put that content in blockquotes to show it’s lifted from the original site.
Lastly, tip #3, make sure you add value by making thoughtful comments in reference to what you’re curating.
I hope this gives you some idea of what curation is and how you can use it to bring valuable content to your readers.
