To Curate and Associate

Social Media and Digital Publications Surfed

Weekly Rejection Roundup

Leave a comment

This week we’ve all had time to sift through potential readings that fit our own individual criteria as well as the classes. Rejections are based on what fits into our own ideology and how an article doesn’t correlate, and just plain old bad articles that probably shouldn’t have been published due to their lacking in knowledge or credibility.

This link is a great example of someone’s own individual PLN. This person is a teacher and subscribes to many outlets that provide meaningful resources pertaining to his interests. However, he doesn’t individualize the tools utilized, instead he links certain pages but not the sources. I would be very interested in learning where these links are coming from instead of clicking a link and be taken to foreign territory. Maybe this is a personal preference, but it’s a great study and insight into why PLN’s are in fact Personal.

This link would in fact be beneficial if it marketed itself for what it really is. A brief window into what curation is and a few generic samplings. It offers some tools, but all of which I myself have already heard of. I’m interested in learning what else is out there, not what else is circulating.

Overall this week provided a great deal of digging and searching for that key element that sticks out from the rest. When searching for important links, I typically look for what is under all the SEO enabled articles, and ones that haven’t been “Seen” so much. I really enjoyed reading about all the different curation platforms available online, and I’ve definitely already bookmarked a few, and I hope you do as well!

I'm a senior at UNLV wrapping up my last semester. I'm also a current start-up owner of a online sex education/ sex toy retail store. It combines the knowledge aspect from professionals in the adult industry as well as certified sexologists and therapists with the fun and liberating option of sex toys and all the accessories that can be introduced into the bedroom, or kitchen, or wherever. Likes: sex, food, hanging out at the Vegas pools, and an awesome cocktail! Dislikes: cockroaches and mean girls (we have to stick together ladies!).
