How to monetize the curation economy, social communities & online learning
by Zoe Chew (3min)
It’s just as hard to build a mediocre company as a transformative one. Both will take 100% of your time. So you might as well work on a bigger idea. New social networking platforms will focus on community-first, invite-only, curated discovery, shared activities, and unique social experiences. Curators are becoming the new creators. Help others to curate resources and make money.
