Are Blogs Social Media? You Bet They Are!
When you hear about something a few times, it really starts to get you thinking. I had a discussion with Jay who revealed he’d been told “blogs are not social media”. Then yesterday, I see a post by Mitch Joel where part of the comments discussion ended up focusing on what makes a blog social media. The comments noted that without allowing comments on your blog, it wouldn’t qualify as social media (somewhat ironic, if you see what I mean). 🙂
Besides, Wikipedia says blogs are social media. Who’s going to argue with that?
In short, blogs are a great way to get your information out and express yourself to those you have a connection with. So, for me, it’s rather narrow minded to think of blogs as outside the realm of social media.
