Social networking is the way forward, of that there is little doubt. It has given all of us the ability to speak our minds, no matter what our location. As long as you can access a mobile broadband signal, or an internet connection, then the world of blogging is at your fingertips.
Of course, that can be a good thing and a bad thing. You only need to look at the rioting in London not so long ago and other places around the globe to see that social networking can be used for both positive and negative purposes. That said, it’s incredible just how proactive people have become in the last couple of years when it comes to speaking their minds and having an opinion.
Tools of choice
What’s more, there are now endless ways of creating your blog and getting content online. Where once the blogger was seen as something of a geek who’d sit in a darkened room musing over all things high-tech, todays blogging community covers anything and everything. Adding to the fun is the fact that it has become increasingly easy to add images and video to blogs, meaning that the overall picture is much more rounded.
Perhaps the greatest thing about the mobile broadband blog though, is the fact that it allows us to keep abreast of the latest developments in the world of news and events, which is like no other media tool known to man. No matter where the location happens to be, there is invariably someone on hand with a digital device in order to document the goings on.
Where in the world
So we’ve seen uprisings in every corner of the globe covered by enthusiastic individuals, as well as more trivial matters closer to home all reported with up to the minute postings from the blogging community. What is interesting is how the world around us is struggling to keep up with all of this new media innovation
While many big companies are trying to get in on the act by launching their own Twitter and Facebook pages, many individuals feel that this is perhaps taking something away from the ‘special’ world of social networking. However, as technology moves so quickly then the corporates are generally one step behind, so just as they find their feet in the world of social networking, it seems likely that a new trend will take the blogging community in a different direction.
Having said that, it’s clear that mobile internet blogs will continue to provide every community, no matter where they happen to be, with a means of getting a message or social commentary across.
While some see this as a worrying trend, and with new media laws still being written to try and contain and police the explosion of content that covers all bases, it appears there is little that can be done in reality to quench the thirst of people who want to have their say and who now have all the tools within their mobile device with which to do it.
