In Content Marketing, many still consider Content Curation a buzz word. But content curation is now becoming an important part of marketing strategy for many companies with a successful online presence.

Content Marketing is a lot different with Content Curation. Content Marketing involves the process of generating original content while Content Curation involves gathering various information about a specific subject matter and presenting it in an organized fashion.

Who are the Content Curators?

Anyone can be a Content Curator. For example, if you use Facebook, you can create a Facebook page about your love for cats. You can start gathering photos and videos about cats and post it on your Facebook page about cats. Now that makes you a Content Curator for cats lovers. Other Facebook users who love cats will be your fans and they will subscribe or what they “like” your Facebook page.
