Blogging, Microblogging and Facebook

Steve Rubel of MicroPersuasion comments on a recent trend -- he blogs less and spends more time on Twitter ("microblogging" in 140 characters or less) and Facebook.

It seems like the "influentials" in the tech blogging world are also moving in the same direction. Has the blogging peaked or has it just become relatively more mainstream?

Among medical bloggers, Joshua Schwimmer also uses Twitter and has transformed KidneyNotes into a collection of selected links. He writes 2 other blogs -- Tech Medicine and EfficientMD, and has a profile on LinkedIn.

It will be interesting to see how microblogging (Twitter) and social networking (Facebook) will shape the future of medical blogging as we know it.
