Americans spend nearly a quarter of their time online on social networking sites such as Facebook, Twitter and YouTube – there are others, like the scrappy Tumblr, but they have a long hill to climb to catch up to the big three. Twitter is celebrating its 20 billionth tweet, and not long ago Facebook notched up its 500 millionth member.
Will adding your twitter feed to your blog or website increase your PR? Ann Liu investigates... ...and here's what Ann thinks of bloggers, blogs and blogging:
" Most blogs are small potatoes. The vast majority are online journals where teenagers talk about their lives to a readership made up of their closest friends. A growing minority, however, are businesses in and of themselves. They balance costs and income; they purposely seek out content providers, advertisers, and paying customers. They make a profit. They are, in fact, blog empires, ruling over a reader-defined section of the blogosphere as the go-to site for millions who come to get the news, buy promotional merchandise, and donate money to keep their favorite bloggers fed and happy. That's where you come in."Fast forward to the bottom of Ann's article - "Rant blogs are generally 'brain dump' blogs, where the blogger simply writes what's on her mind, tells about her day, or whines about her boss..."
