What is Microblog ?

Microblogs are important because they allow us to connect with the world around us.

What’s a microblog?
A microblog is a platform where a user can publish short pieces of content, quick thoughts or ideas. It’s intended to be fast and easy to use, light and effortless to maintain. It is perfect for writing short stories that are accessible by an engaged community.

 

Microblogs can actually live alongside blogs:

  • Microblogs are often used to promote articles. Journalists love to tweet their articles since it’s a way to drive traffic from Twitter to their piece.
  • Microblogs can provide additional context a story.
    A lot of travel bloggers use their Instagram accounts to post photos they don’t include in their blog posts.
  • Microblogs can also serve as an inspiration tool. A conversation on Reddit can become the backbone of a future blog post of yours.
    If microblogs and blogs can definitely coexist, that doesn’t necessarily mean that you should have a blog to start your microblog. The latter can be your main publishing tool where short stories and big ideas work perfectly together.
  • When my co-founder and I created FAQtr, we wanted it to be a free publishing tool for your authentic stories, whether they were short and snappy or long and thoughtful.

Why you should choose MicroBlogging over blogging


Having a blog doesn’t prevent you from creating a microblog. But if you hesitate between starting a blog or a microblog, here are a few reasons why you should consider microblogging over blogging.

 

 

  1. Twitter : The OG of micro blogging sites, Twitter is not only one of the most popular microblogging sites around, but it’s also one of the most popular social media platforms around.
  2. Tumblr : With over 470 million different blogs, Tumblr is great hub of short form content. On the microblogging site, you can create a blog and include links, text, photos, GIFs, videos, Spotify tracks, MP3 files, and more in your posts.
  3. Pinterest : Unlike most microblogs, Pinterest is purely visual.
  4. Instagram: Instagram is mostly a visual platform -like Pinterest – Instagram also has some shades of Tumblr, letting you add 2200 character long captions to each photo or video you post on your profile.
  5. Facebook: You might know Facebook as the most popular social media network in the world. But it’s also the most robust microblogging platform out there.
