What does it mean to be curated on Medium?

For those who are unaware, having a story curated implies that it has been chosen by Medium curators to be spread to a larger audience under a certain tag (or several). Curation implies that your article will appear in the feeds of thousands of people, whether or not they follow you. Curated articles are displayed above the fold on Medium, where most readers will see them without having to scroll down.

Medium curates content based on what it deems as "authority" sources. These include publications such as magazines, newspapers, and journals. In addition, some famous people and organizations can also request that their stories be curated.

Who decides what gets curated? Medium itself selects what it believes will be popular among its users. Users can vote on which stories they want to see curated. As well, certain categories tend to get selected for curation more often than others. For example, Medium selects stories from publications that earn money via advertising, which means that you might see an article on CNBC curated along with others on ESPN's website.

In conclusion, being curated on Medium is a privilege given to important stories that would otherwise get lost in the crowd. It demonstrates that someone at Medium considers the story worthy of attention and hope that it will receive more attention after being exposed to a new audience.

Can I monetize curated content?

The key to monetizing curated content is to collect and arrange material in a very particular niche for a specific audience and application, wherever feasible. One obvious distinguishing feature of commercially effective curated collections is that a considerable portion of the collection is frequently freely shared with the public. This publicly available material can be linked to and framed by the exclusive content, thereby increasing traffic through branded channels and helping establish brand recognition where it may not otherwise exist.

For example, Zappos.com creates highly relevant and popular products lists on its website for each category it offers, such as "best dresses under $100". These lists are then linked to from each product page so that they appear at the top of the browser window when someone visits the site. This means that more people are likely to click on the link and visit the product page if it's featured on the list, which in turn may lead to sales. Of course, only items that meet Zappos' criteria make the list, but even so, this is still valuable exposure for the company's brand.

In addition to product lists, Zappos also creates editorial lists such as "25 books every musician should read", which are also heavily promoted on social media platforms such as Facebook. This allows Zappos to reach an engaged audience of music fans looking for recommendations within certain parameters.

Is curated content something you create?

Original material authored or produced by your firm that exists on your website, blog, YouTube channel, and so on is referred to as created content. Curated content, on the other hand, is content from outside your organization that you share with your audience on your website, blog, or social media platforms. For example, let's say that I write about web design on my blog, http:​/​/​www.mybloggingcompany.com. I would consider what I write to be my original content, but if I also include links to other web sites in these posts, those would be considered curations.

So yes, curated content is content from outside sources that you share on your website or blog. It can include articles, images, videos, etc. That provides additional information for your audience, while still giving credit to the original author/creator.

What is a curated collection?

What exactly is a "selected" collection? The word is intended to indicate that the buyers/merchants of a specific catalog have chosen just those things for you to purchase that have a certain cache and meet their approval for "coolness." Essentially, they're choosing what's in it for them.

Curated collections are designed to appeal to various tastes within a given genre or category. For example, a photographer might curate a collection that includes artistic photos, candid photos, sports photos, and so on. Or a merchant might curate a collection that features different brands of clothing.

The key idea behind curated collections is that they take the effort out of shopping. Instead of scouring through catalogs or browsing through racks at stores, shoppers can simply look over what has been selected by others like them. This often leads to faster shopping times as well as finding products that others have already filtered out for us.

Who creates these collections? Photographers create curated collections by selecting images from their portfolio. Artists create curated collections by selecting art pieces from around the world. Curators select items for museums and galleries. And merchants create curated collections by selecting products that will be most appealing to their customers.

So, overall, a curated collection is a selection of items that has been carefully chosen by someone.

What does it mean to "curate" an event?

Curation, in my opinion, is the use of event content to create a story or express a message to your audience. We've all gone to events that seemed fragmented, leaving you wondering what the goal was. Curation is how you put together a series of topics or speakers to tell one story or make one point.

The best events are those that tell a clear story, that leave your audience with a sense of completion. The only way to do this is by choosing relevant and interesting speakers, and weaving their messages together into one narrative. You should also try to include some type of activity at the end of the event to keep things lively and encourage people to join in if they liked what they heard.

So basically, curation is deciding what types of speakers/topics to include in your event, then using these elements to create a coherent story that will appeal to attendees.

Events can be curated for many different reasons. For example, an organizer may want to highlight important issues in the world today and include speakers from different backgrounds who will each discuss one topic. Or they may just want to have a good time with friends - in which case the event would be more like a party than a seminar. Whatever the case may be, events can be very effective tools for spreading awareness about causes and charities as well as promoting new products and services.

What is a curated conversation?

"The most interesting things in our sector are happening when individuals are simply reinventing how to build actual, meaningful interactions and emphasizing the greatest ones." You may refer to it as "selected dialogues," "deep editorial interaction," or any other combination of community buzzwords you like. What matters is that you're getting out of your editor's office and into the community itself.

To put it simply: A curated conversation is just a discussion guided by someone with an expert eye. The goal is for you to leave with something worth talking about or more importantly, sharing. And to do this successfully, you need some quality control. That's where we come in.

We work with publishers to find topics they want to hear about from their audience and then provide a forum for these conversations to happen. We do this by reaching out to relevant experts within the industry and having real-time discussions with members of the community. In return, they give us feedback on which topics are most important to them and we use this information to guide what conversations take place.

These conversations are not always easy but that's what makes them so interesting. We like to think of them as listening posts if you will, where publishers can listen in on what its audience wants to talk about and jump in with their own views. It's also a great way for them to get insight into what's going on within their community that maybe nobody else has told them yet!
