There are more than 120 million videos on YouTube and that’s only one of many popular video-sharing sites, so you can just imagine how many videos are actually uploaded every day.
At first these popular video sharing sites were for anyone and everyone who wanted to play around with video. But, within recent years, these sites have been used to promote small and large businesses. Take a look at Gary Vayuchuck. He built his entire wine business on the Internet.
Social Boom (Amazon affiliate link) by Jeffrey Gitomer promises to deliver a lot. It promises to show you how to master business social media to brand yourself, sell yourself, rake in the cash and grind your competition into the dirt. Wow. All from a book with 190 pages?
Unfortunately, it isn’t able to deliver all that has been promised. Not even close.
There was a time when the only curator was a person who selected artwork or hard-to-find artifacts for an art gallery or a museum. Not any more. Today, according to author, Steven Rosenbaum, founder and CEO of Magnify.net, everyone is a curator. In his book, “Curation Nation,” you get a sense of how curation evolved.
Steven Rosenbaum's Curation Nation sports two subtitles: "Why the Future of Content is Context" and "How to Win in a World where Consumers are Creators." If I had to give a one-sentence book review it would read: Curation Nation gives context to, well, context.
