We’ve explored automated feeds over the years, and found them to be either too inclusive (too many redundant or irrelevant stories) or too exclusive (missing key stories or sources). So, we assign someone the task—which takes about an hour a day, or less—of searching for relevant news from the external media, and re-publishing the news on our intranet. We have an agreement with an organization that permits us to republish from many sources, including major newspapers, magazines, and trade journals. We also use various alert systems and e-mail subscriptions to help with the story discovery. http://holtz.com/blog/content-curation/guest-post-curating-news-about-the-company-for-the-intranet/3746/#When:14:44:25Z
External developments are important contributing factors to a business. These basically dictate where the trade is going. Employees who are aware with what’s going on in the market can easily adapt to the internal changes necessary to be competitive. Curating news in this regard will keep employees well informed without spending too much time reading them.
