This is yet another amazing graph from Flowtown – The Evolution of the Blogger.
This really sums up what the groups around the blogosphere, and I am happy that they are making note of the emerging micro-blogging trends. With the development of tumblr and twitter (and all photo apps that link to it) as well as jaiku and other less known microblogging platforms, photoblogging and microblogging are becoming more and more wide-used. And the be honest – who has time to read thousand-word long blogposts when you are following 20-30+ blogs (or even more for that matter). 140 characters is what my attention span has been reduced to. 🙂
Also it is great to acknowledge the importance that some of the company blogs have, in order to establish a company or their products as a source of useful information or even a go-to resource for information, trends and ideas.
Also vlogging is a trend that perhaps needs a graph of its own, but it is good that it is on the little chart. With millions and millions of clicks on some of the most famous youtube vloggers, there is no way that it will be passed unnoticed. The audience to which these people are speaking is tremendous. I will really be interested to see a study about vloggers, to figure out whether my gut feeling, that only the entertaining and brainless vlogs are uber-popular, is true…. food for thought (and research)…
Little Side Note:
Dear Flowtown, I heart you so much! Thank you for always making my days with your witty, thought-provoking and amazing graphs!
