Lacking time to write a detailed blog? No problem. With the growth of mobile internet devices has come “micro-blogging,” a new kind of web diary where people fire off terse missives about what they are doing or thinking at any given moment.
The trend is towards bare-bones postings – on-the-go versions of online journals in which people share their lives and dreams. Social networking site Twitter has attracted a large following as a way to share Haiku-like text messages with an unlimited number of friends instantly via mobile phones.
Another site, Utterz, goes a step further by allowing users to post text, video, photos or audio from mobile telephones to the internet with a simple call.
“We want to make blogging as easy as talking,” says Utterz president Randy Corke. “Our users can literally take their mobile telephone out and capture the experience, and the emotion of their voice, and interview people.” (AFP)
