    Content curation is the act of finding content that your followers / viewers like and putting it in a central place. For example everytime you retweet something on twitter you are curating content. Content is too time consuming/expensive to write all the time, so content curation is a great skill to learn as you can establish some kind of authority simply by curating other peoples posts. For more large scale content curation examples check out www.alltop.com etc.

    Also you can add your own twists / e.g. writing a small article around a video that you've curated relevant to your niche, although this is kind of stepping out of the bounds of pure content curation, it can add real value to your blog.

    I generally think of it as taking bits of other content and then discussing it or repurposing it.

    gathering related content and adding value by organizing it, sharing it, and commenting on it and/or allowing others to comment and share it.

    To be simple, Content curation is the process of gathering high quality content that surrounds specific theme or topic.

    content curation is very different from content marketing. Content curation doesn't include creating new content; it's the act of discovering, compiling, and sharing existing content with your online followers. Content curation is becoming an important tactic for any marketing department to maintain a successful online presence. Not only that, but content curation allows you to provide extra value to your brand's audience and customers, which is key to building those lasting relationships with loyal fans.

    Content curation is the process of sorting through the vast amounts of content on the web and presenting it in a meaningful and organized way around a specific theme. The work involves sifting, sorting, arranging, and publishing information.

    Gather content from different sources and arrange it in a way that makes more sense together than they did alone.

    A fancy word for ripping off other peoples work and passing it off as something new.
