There are some really interesting things going on including a decrease in Blogging on the website WordPress.com with an increase for Blogspot.com. I find this platform, WordPress.com, much easier to use and amazing for connecting with my other social media accounts. The other big drop is in Facebook. Are we tiring of this medium? Are we becoming more professional and focussing more on our business connections and networking through sites such as Linkedin.
Will be very interested to see the numbers in a few months time.
