Today Dr Tanya has asked our opinion about this quote;
“Twitter is like a calling card. Facebook is like a phone call. Blogging is like a full-fledged conversation!”
I’m not much into social media, and I don’t count blogging as social media. So I don’t think that they can be compared as it will be like comparing a visit to a friend to looking at pictures on a website.
Perhaps, I am handicapped by my lack of knowledge of how to use social media, but I do know that blogging is a whole different ball game. It is an exchange of ideas, information, and also of personal views and opinions. I think it combines a phone call, a quick visit and reading a letter from a colleague or a friend.
There are blogs where you gather information about something you want to know about or perhaps a place you want to visit. That too is quite detailed and enriches your mind. For instance, when I was going to get my ankle surgery done, I read a few medical blogs, detailing the procedure and its after effects. It was an enlightening experience and was nothing like reading something on Facebook or Twitter
So I would disagree with this quote as it doesn’t take the whole blogging experience in its totality and its comparison to social media is not relevant.
