In an age of seemingly unlimited amounts of content across the web, how do the most important and meaningful stories get disseminated? If a story lacks the right facts, and bloggers are too quick to post without editing, what are the impacts on news and on issues driving forward our everyday lives? How can causes and campaigns determine the content that is filtered to their community and create calls to action? Further, how can we as good citizen and professional curators derive meaning from the ever-increasing noise of social networks?
This discussion will address the complications of quality controlling content in the social age, including:
• How user generated content and citizen journalism contribute to world of news and global issues.
• How we can ensure that the right content documenting issues globally gets to the right media.
• How we create clear, concise, and attention grabbing news and calls to action from noise.
• How we can add value as curators in the online space
• How causes and campaigns can play into the right space online and in media
