Valuable insight for those interested in seeing how news curation and editor’s choice approaches in journalism can benefit both the publisher and its audience a lot more than simply picking and aggregating interesting stories from other sites. One key relevant difference between aggregating news stories from other sources and editorially curated content is the role of the curator, a tangible person with specific value and ethics who readers come to respect, identify with and ultimately trust for his / her choices in what they should be paying attention to. Curation and trust may indeed form the basis of a new symbiotic [HUMAN] relationship between information seekers and subject-matter expert curators that will gradually displace the value of traditional algorithmic search.

The Future of News Journalism Will Be Built Around Curation and Trust
