Wiki: A blog
(a contraction of the term "Web log") is a Web site, usually maintained
by an individual with regular entries of commentary, descriptions of events, or
other material such as graphics or video. Entries are commonly displayed in
reverse-chronological order. "Blog" can also be used as a verb, meaning to
maintain or add content to a blog
.
As per a leading
blog tracking portal- Technorati, on an average 900,000 blog posts were made in
every 24 hours and Technorati has itself indexed 133 million blogs by 2002.
Today blogs have
grabbed the major portion of online information & entertainment industry, with 4
of the top entertainment sites as blogs (Reported by Technorati).
Blogosphere, as
wiki defines, it is he collective community of all blogs is. Since all blogs are
on the internet by definition, they may be seen as interconnected and socially
networked, through blogrolls, comments, linkbacks (refbacks, trackbacks or
pingbacks) and backlinks. Discussions "in the blogosphere" have been used by the
media as a gauge of public opinion on various issues. A collection of local
blogs is sometimes referred to as a bloghood.
Blogs have so
important that now we have special search engines for blogs that only indexes
blogs and provide extra content from other sites. some of the major search
engines are – Bloglines, Technorati, Blogscope.
With the
popularity of blogging (Personal Journalism), advertising industry got a new
dimension where they can target the specific population of that user base that
goes to a particular Technology or news blog.
As the number of
blogs increases there was huge need to remember all this links which later
developed the concept of bookmarking sites like Digg, Delicious, Stumbleupon.
Now we have enhanced version of this bookmarking sites called as Social
Bookmarking. Bookmarking has become so essential that almost all the major
Social Networking sites are now offering bookmarking functionality. In fact we
have Twitter where people share there current activity on any site.
Social Networking
is history, now Blogging is the buzzword of today’s world wide web and everyone
is running to make a quick buck in this. We have Microsoft (msn Spaces), Yahoo
(360 degree), Google (Blogspot), News Corp (Myspace),  Six Apart (Live Journal),
and lots of top notch companies in the race. Get Ready !
