Podcast: Tips for Today’s Social Curation Summit in Los Angeles

By Devon Glenn 

On this social media edition of the Morning Media Menu, GalleyCat editor Jason Boog got us ready for our Social Curation Summit in Los Angeles with a new resume tool and some do’s and don’ts for hanging out on a social network for authors.

Today’s conference is all about those platforms and tools that help us make sense of all the information on the internet in order to make the experience more personal and relevant.

In the podcast, Boog gave an example of a writing community called Goodreads. He warned authors against using the site to spam readers with book promos.

At the conference, Boog will be moderating the “Afternoon Keynote: Sharing, Social & Self: The 3 S’s of Curation” with Ramy Adeeb, CEO of Snip.it.

(I’ll be handling three panels today: “Tastemaking Through Curated Communities,” “The Social Media Mixtape: Curating Music and Other Sounds,” and “Cut and Paste: Inspiration for DIY Communities.”)

If you’re planning on bringing your resume, check this out: LinkedIn and Visual.ly have collaborated on an application that can turn your resume into an infographic — a fun way to show employers your profile on the professional network.
