Blogging is no longer the rage it used to be! Google Insights, a trend tracking tool which tracks search terms on the Google search engine worldwide, has shown a 50% decline in blogs last year. On the other hand, micro-blogging websites such as Twitter and Facebook have seen an exponential rise in users. In 2010, blogging declined in India by 30%. Blogging gained popularity in the early 2000s, but it now appears to have hit the skids, as micro-blogging platforms offer a quicker and easier way of sharing thoughts, either as a few sentences or even mere cryptic fragments. Blogging has also become more network driven, as on shared networks like Twitter, Google Plus or Facebook; in contrast to independent domains or blogs.
