Almost a third of those who write blogs are in the U.S. and over 50% of Twitterers are American. The U.S.A. accounts for most bloggers with 30% of blogs being produced in the U.S., which is some four times greater than the number two country, the U.K. with 7% of blogs being British. Japan occupies the third place, and Brazil is fourth. China-based blogs aren’t represented in the list given the oppressive anti free-speech stance of the Chinese government.
Twitter use against the blogging stats shows clearly that short status-message posting is more popular in the U.S. than writing blogs. It suggests younger Americans prefer making short postings on social networking sites, and going online on mobile phones. The popularity of blogs has steadily declined among both teens and young adults.
