7 Qualities of Highly Effective Content Curators

Every time I visit the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York City, I see something I’ve never seen before. In fact, t’s considered the most influential museum of modern art in the world. With that in mind, meet Klaus Biesenbach. Klaus holds the title “Chief Curator at Large” at MoMA. If you’ve visited the MoMA and walked away impressed (like I have), Klaus has a lot to do with that.


As content curators, we should all aspire to be like Klaus. After all, wouldn’t it be great if our content collections drew as much interest, respect and admiration as the collections at MoMA? In order to achieve this feat, we need to become highly effective content curators. In other words, we need to curate Internet content as we would fine art.

Let’s consider seven habits of content creation that would make Klaus Biesenbach proud.

1. Focus on Goals
What are your goals around content curation? .......

2. Have Empathy
Empathy is defined as “the ability to understand and share the feelings of another.” .......

3. Be Careful, Cautious and Selective
Quality is the number one downfall of ineffective content curators. ......

4. Editorialize
I LOVE going to bookstores and reading a handwritten review from one of the employees. .....

5. Provide Attribution
I bet Klaus Biesenbach wishes he could “hyperlink” exhibit pieces to the artist who created it. .......

6. Understand What’s Timely and Trending
Sharing fresh milk is good. Sharing spoiled milk is rotten. .......

7. Have an Eye for a Great Title
Not everyone will be as thorough as you when reviewing content.  .......
