Microblogging: Friend or Foe?

by Celine on July 24th, 2008


This week I’ve collected some articles in the blogosphere which talk about microblogging and the different microblogging platforms. While many people enjoy these services, others feel like they’re just a distraction and add to their information overload.  But, like any other online tool, microblogging platforms can have many benefits if used properly.  The question is, how do you do that?

    I’m not sure. I’m tinkering a bit with Twitter right now, but so far I see a lot more practical use (i.e. I can make money with this) from sites like MySpace and Facebook. That said, I’ve barely delved into what Twitter can do, so I will take a peek at these articles. :)
