I have been thinking a lot about all the blogs out there and all the blog services like Tumblr or BlogSpot or Posterous and I wonder who all these services are targetting? I think back to high school and there were a few people who had the ability to express their lives in words that others could comprehend. Now we are expecting everyone to start posting interesting topics and opinions on what they are reading or what is happening in their world. It makes me understand more why social networks like Twitter, LinkedIn and Facebook are becoming so popular. Its the quick easy way to give an opinion. You Like it or Share it and you are done. I wonder if this is adding any real value to the community of authors and the total information shared. It feels more like copying a paper from the student net to you instead of actually writing something useful and informative. What do all of you think?
