2. Pick content sources and streams

For your website to generate dynamic content, it must have a source of data to retrieve content from and then display it on your page. The internet is like one giant app store. Content streams can come from current websites, search queries, site enabled tools, etc. The three main categories of content sources are:

  • Organic Content: Streams that are user run such as site cameras, comments, subscriptions
  • Preprocessed Content: Custom streams of data that include processing content from other sources
  • Postprocessed Content: Streams with post processed data such as Facebook, twitter, (social networking sites)
