Types Of Blogs

  • Personal Blog

  • The personal blogs are online diary or commentary written by an individual rather than a corporation or organization. A vast majority of personal blogs attract only few peoples instead of a organization or corporation blog because personal blogs wont get much sponsership and advertisement which dont attract peoples but there is tiny number of blog who attracted peoples and became popular both in the online community and in the real world.

  • Collaborative blogs or group blogs

  • It is a type of weblog in which posts are written by more than one author. a majority of collaborative blogs are based on the same themes such as Technology, Politics, Advocacy. these types of blogs become popular faster than any other because pre-stablished bloggers post there content and it reduces the pressure of maintaining a popular website too.

  • Microblogging

  • Microblogging is the practice of posting small pieces of digital content—which could be text, pictures, links, short videos, or other media—on the Internet. Microblogging offers a portable communication mode that feels organic and spontaneous to many users. It has captured the public imagination, in part because the short posts are easy to read on the go or when waiting. Friends use it to keep in touch, business associates use it to coordinate meetings or share useful resources, and celebrities and politicians (or their publicists) microblog about concert dates, lectures, book releases, or tour schedules. A wide and growing range of add-on tools enables sophisticated updates and interaction with other applications. The resulting profusion of functionality is helping to define new possibilities for this type of communication.Examples of these include Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr and, by far the largest, WeiBo.
