Will Social Networks Destroy Blogging?
Yes possibly, blogging could end as we now know it so long as the trend continues and influential bloggers irresponsibly push social networking sites like Facebook. They’re acting more like opportunists exploiting the latest trend instead of being an example and warning of its limitations and dangers thereof.
In the long run they’re only cutting their own throats, as well as for the rest of us bloggers. But they don’t seem to care because they follow the money no matter where it leads them.
The blind leading the blind.
We need to keep our perspective. Common sense and past experience tells us new technologies for the sake of technology (despite the coolness factor) isn’t always a good thing.
Keep your eye on the ball and always remember, your blog is the center of your online universe. All the rest is just icing on the cake to bring your readers back to your (real) blog.
