There are 3.5 million pieces of content shared everyday on Facebook, 1.4 million blog posts created every day, 48Â hours of videos uploaded onto Youtube per minute, 2,300 new Wikipedia articles created on an average day and 57 million WordPress websites written in over 100 languages. Iâ€™ve decided not to go on because, well, you get the idea –the internet is bursting with content!
Imagine how much quality content there is online with that much input surging into the web every day, every minute! But we donâ€™t have all our lives to seethe out all these worthy pieces of content. Even the best search engine can only do so much to get you the information you want. It might surprise you to know that up to 20% of Google searches have never been done before.
This is where the business of curation comes in. No machine learning recommendation engine can beat the delivery of content that is handpicked by experts on a topic.Â In this infographic from CurationSoft, be amazed at how much content people are generating on the web and check out what industry experts like Robert Scoble and Seth Godin have to say about curation.
