Curating content is not simply aggregating it and serving it up for your audience to analyze or find answers themselves. It’s about picking the most relevant and useful information on a topic, adding your insights and commentary, and making it easy for your audience to make a decision or enhance their understanding of that topic.

Curation is taking a lot of good things and packing them into one better thing.
