Curation has always been a difficult topic to talk about and there are very mixed reactions to curation services. On the one hand we hate them, because they take away traffic, which reduces loyalty to individual publishers and creates a gap between the audience and the publishers.

But at the same time, many publishers are trying to engage in curation. So, we hate it when other people do it, but we love it when we do it.
