    I was recently reading an article and i came across the term microblogging. Does anyone here know the similarities or maybe the difference between micro-blogging and the normal blogging. This is a new term to me..and i thought it was quite interesting.
     
  2. Micro blogging is typically smaller compared to normal (macro) blogging. in some cases it can use upto 140 characters while the normal one can have 500 characters or even more.

    Microblogging is generally one or two line thoughts which is pointless babble about eating or breathing, tweets from Twitter (which is a microblogging platform itself).
    Blogging is more explained theories or opinions, discussed in depth. Think blogger and wordpress.
    The name have already told :)

    Micro blogging is all about one liners or two liners. They provide information in brief and short whereas normal blogging contains full articles in them.

    According to me, micro-blogging & blogging both are forms of social networking. If we talk about blogging, it is the way to describe yourself in a written form according to your own requirement. If we talk about micro-blogging, it describes the shorter form of communication. Such as Twitter is the best example of micro-blogging.

    They differ in depth. A blog post is detailed and a microblog post is short.

    Tweeter is a microblog, in 140 characters you can share a lot of useful (or pointless) stuff, from exactly what you are doing right now, to a link which explains the entire history of World War 2.

    Another great example of a microblog would be one related to books. You could share quotes, passages, summary and personal feelings about a book. Tumblr is famous for this format

    I have also seen bloggers combining the two perfectly, they write their long detailed posts, but also share content they find elsewhere, followed by a short description of why they thought of sharing that with their audience

    Blogging sites
    A blog is a journal of ideas or a diary published online without character limit. Its owner has the freedom to express his opinions about one or more topics.

    Micro-blogging sites
    The latest development in the field of applications to communicate over the Internet are microblogs.

    Diffrence between Bloging Site and Micro-Blogging Sites

    1. As mentioned above, a blog and a microblog have a big immediate difference and that is the number of characters allowed to communicate. As a blogger you generally have no limit while as a microblogger you are usually rectricted to 140 to 150 words.

    2. There is a great deal of difference between your writing style as a blogger and a microblogger, which in turn dictates the convenience offered to convey an idea to the readers.

    3. A blogging site updates at the discretion of the blogger while a microblogging site keeps updating minute by minute.
     
  9. In simple words you can say microblogging is the short form of your business explanation but blogging is the full form of your business explanation.
