It is always great to have the opportunity to share your knowledge with others, and I am grateful to have had the opportunity to do so at BlogWorld. As a panelist on the topic of Promoting Your Blog in the Age of Social Media, I dealt with many questions on promoting a corporate blog and using social media to do so. Overall, the attendees of our session saw the benefits of blogging, and of using social media to promote their blogs.
Before we spoke, the good folks at WebProNews (Abby Johnson) did an interview with me that I wanted to share with you on whether social media was going to somehow replace blogs. There are some good tidbits in there, so pay attention.
Is Social Media Replacing Blogging?
As you can tell from the interview, I don’t believe that social media will replace blogging. I think that there is a place for both and each serves a different purpose. In particular, social media and micro-blogging will continue to grow and be used as a means for sharing information on a small scale, while blogs will serve as destinations for in depth looks at various topics. Ultimately, these different tools will continue to work hand in hand, as one is used to promote and share the other.
What do you think?
Will the rapid growth of social media platforms lead to the death of the blog? Leave your thoughts below!
