Do's and Don'ts of Content Curation

The final post in this weeklong series on content curation is the "do's and don'ts."

  • No matter where you publish, always remember to add something of your own to the curated content. Just sharing a link on Twitter isn't content curation; neither is copying and pasting sections of someone else's article to your blog, even if you give them attribution. 
  • Try using your curated content as the basis for explaining your opinions, giving insights on a new topic, or exploring the opinions of others.
