I believe the winds have truly shifted in regards to social media, and it appears that blogging is being left behind. I’m seeing an exponential decline in both blogging and the attention paid to blogs. Twitter and Facebook seem to have firmly taken the lead.
It’s strange that you see some major celebrities who don’t even have a website or blog anymore. They just have Facebook and Twitter. And for many of them, their Facebook page just auto-populates from their Twitter feed. Everything has then been reduced to one channel, Twitter, and that content is duplicated for other streams.
I’m more of a blogger at heart, and I really haven’t been interested in Twitter. But the signs are clear – the party has moved on.
