Blogging has been a popular trend for many years, but how long can it last? In 2021 will the number of people who blog be greater than or less then now in 2016.
People are switching to social media, Facebook, Twitter, TikTok, Instagram or Discord, and Clubhouse to share their ideas and thoughts instead of writing blog. There are so many other platforms that are easy to use and engage with the followers. So, should you still keep blogging?
The answer is not clear-cut as there are some indications that blogging might be dying out and others suggesting just the opposite. But does all social media really need its own space where you post your thoughts like blogs do?
What is the differences between social networking and blogging?
The difference between blogs and social media: Blogging creates content that lives on your website. Social media engages with people about content ( Gussif, 2014)
Social media posts and blogs both provide a platform for people to share their thoughts, but the two platforms are distinct in many ways. Social media post tend to be shorter than blog articles because they are designed with brevity in mind.
One of the major differences between social media posts and blog is that you can only comment on an article by leaving your opinion at the end or bottom of it; whereas, comments come up right away when somebody reads a new Facebook status update.
Blogs also give readers more room for commentary since there’s no limit as long as what someone writes has something interesting about it–this gives bloggers greater opportunity to engage with others who have read their work!
Blogging has been around for ages, but people have still found new uses. The future of blogging is looking bright with a couple recent advances in the technology that will make it easier than ever to share your thoughts and ideas on this platform while also being able to connect with other like-minded bloggers who are passionate about similar topics.
PS: Blogging can be a great way to target keywords that will help you rank higher on search engines and get your message out there. It is a great way to promote your business, content, or product.
