The increasing amount of information online is exceeding our ability to process it, and content burden, or infobesity, is clearly a problem that needs to be resolved. This problem has been mostly addressed by using algorithm-based recommendation systems, but many platforms have lately reverted to more traditional method of human curation. This research explores the reasons for this and compares these two curation methods in the context of short-form video. We also present a Hybrid Curation Model that combines human curation with algorithms.
