Micro and nano blogging

View Comments


If you are familiar with blogging, I think you’ve also heard of/or encountered Micro-blogging. With a Micro-blog you have a limit of 140 characters to answer one of the most frequent question: “What are you doing?”. But as the micro-blogging has become increasingly popular and has more users so have the use of it changed. Instead of just typing what you are doing, the micro-blogs has become a tool to share links and tips with each other, and also a way to let people know when you have a new update on your blog. Plurk is one of these micro-blogs that let you choose if you want to tell people what you’re doing or maybe what you’re looking for or if you just want to share a link or a photo.

Here are few of many micro-blogs out in the bloggosphere:

  • TwitterThis is the original(?) and also the biggest of the micro-blogs on the net
  • BloggyThis is the Swedish counterpart to Twitter
  • JaikuThis was meant to be the “Twitter killer”
  • Plurk -On this micro-blog you can choose in which category your post belongs

This way of blogging I ran in to yesterday when I stumbled around on the net. A Nano-blog is similar to a micro-blog, but only that a nano-blog is even smaller than a micro-blog. Instead of a limit to 140 characters, you have a limit to one word to explain whatever you want to say. I think this is a quite fun idea and a little bit of a challenge. it may sound easy but try to explain i.e “I have a bad headache and don’t want to work any more today” with just a single word, it’s quite of a challenge but it’s fun. I think that many new and strange words will be born via Nano-blogging.. So far, I have only find a Swedish version of the Nano-blog, and the name of that site is Nanoblogg.se

Using Flock, the social web browser when blogging.

I’ve been playing around with Flock (the web browser built on the same platform as Firefox 3) for a while and I have to admit that it’s a really neat and useful browser if you’re using social networks.

Flock reminds of Firefox in broad terms, but Flock is more optimized for social networking.

My first impression of Flock is, I really like the “People Sidebar” where you can simply gather your facebook, Myspace, YouTube, Twitter, Flickr and Digg accounts. Then you can simply write and add things to your accounts using Flock.

If you’re intrested to try Flock, go to their hompage at www.flock.com and download it. Have fun!

more to come..
