Social Media

The evolution of the blogger- a historical infographic has released a graphic outlining the historical timeline of how blogging came to be and our favorite part is the top left panel that says, “In the dark ages of the early 1990s…” For those who are new to blogging, it is worth looking at how this medium came to be and how the road was paved for what we all now enjoy as blogging.

The next generation of bloggers is coming and Flowtown believes (per the graphic) that the next generation blogger will be microbloggers using Twitter and I would add that in that same genre of regurgitation is the Tumblr generation of sharing and resharing media.

    This was a fun post, Lani. Thanks for sharing. Equally as fascinating is the digital fashion sense of the cartoon. 🙂 And thanks for introducing us to Flowtown. I may be the only one who hasn’t heard of it.

    I know one of the Founders at Flowtown, they are definitely good people and working hard. If you haven’t already, you should try out their social media discovery tools for your prospects. Asides from that, yes they do make great infographics! : )
