I don’t lie. Facebook and Twitter has literally killed Blogging.
Before Facebook/Twitter, everyone has a blog and will post whatever nonsense imaginable. The process of writing a blog post could means hours spent writing long winded post that nobody will read, or uploading large chunk of cam-whore pics on the mirror. Btw self-taken mirror pics are fine only if you wipe the mirror clean and turn off the flash.
Anyway all this self updates can be done within seconds on Facebook/Twitter. People finally starts to realize nobody reads long winded posts unless it is really worth reading. Short timely message gets the message across fast and save lots of time. And it can be done easily on the go on your mobile.
With blogs, whatever you post is useless if nobody reads it. On Facebook/Twitter, there is a so much higher chance that whatever crap you post will be read. Since it will automatically shows up on your friends’ wall. Want to make sure whoever you want to show know that you just posted something? Just tag them! People usually read whatever they are tagged in.
The only downside is that I notice more and more photographers using only Facebook to upload their photos. This is just sad cos lets face it, Facebook is the worst platform to present your photos. It disintegrate the photo quality you know it to be true. But I must admit, tagging can be fun for some people and this ensure that the photos be seemed by whoever tagged. Yes even unglam pics of you can be shared within a blink.
Yes blogging is dead. I find myself lazy to blog and only do so once a week now. Damn you Facebook and Twitter.
Anyway these series of photos are totally unrelated and are entries I posted up at figure.fm. Go there to read the captions.
