It´s all about microblogging

Microblogging is the new hot trend within web 2.0 and social media. Within microblogging Twitter is the giant, whereas Jaiku and Pownce are newer communities. In short microblogging is about short messages, and there is a max. limit of characters – for Twitter it´s 140 characters. Therefore microblogging is short messages that you send via your mobile device or computer. Besides, you receive updates from the one´s you follow. To put it in perspective microblogging is actually like status updates on Facebook. The idea is simply to be connected all the time – showing your network and friends what you´re doing of interesting things. It´s a very simple concept, and I believe this is a necessity, in order to reach the mainstream audience. And microblogging is less time-consuming and has a larger potential than regular blogging, since this is a part-time job to keep it running. From my belief microblogging will further revolutionize the traditional text messages.

I have posted videos from the Common Craft Show before – and I´m really fascinated by this way of presenting stuff, since it is kept simple.
