This tweet expresses my view of curation well. Sometimes, I want to bring readers to the article for a full read, if I can spark their interest. However, sometimes the idea can be conveyed in one or two pull quotes. Both kinds of link posts have value. In the end, it depends on the reader to choose.
When I worked in news there was often a business imperative to promote your work for clicks.— Joanna Geary ⚡️ (@JoannaG) August 3, 2021
One of the things I really love about Curation is that our work isn't measured that way. It's usually not a good indicator for our goals.
Sometimes we actively want to save a click.
