Study: More women, traditional media are blogging

Study: More women, traditional media are blogging | Afghan Women in Media | Scoop.it

The blogosphere -- arguably the first engine of the new-media age -- is becoming more female, while traditional media is horning in on the blogging action, a new study said Friday."It's healthy and it's mature," said Shani Higgins, CEO of Technorati Media, about the state of the blogosphere. "It's becoming more and more blurred with traditional media: Every traditional media source has a blog and is using a blog to create communities around their topics and articles."

Among the findings in the Technorati "State of the Blogosphere 2011" study: More women -- or fewer men -- are blogging, although men still are in the majority at 59%, down from 64% last year, Higgins said.

The annual Technorati study, released Friday at the BlogWorld & New Media Expo at the Los Angeles Convention Center, is regarded as the blogging industry's standard-bearer and a measuring stick of its explosive growth over the past decade. The expo is the first and only industry-wide trade show promoting new media, organizers said.

"It cannot be stressed enough that blogs are still the center of the social-media universe," said Rick Calvert, co-founder and CEO of the expo. Of course, Facebook and Twitter might disagree.

Traditional media outlets have been trying to leverage the popularity of blogs to enhance their brands, Higgins said.

"Go to the websites of The New York Times and CNN, any of them. Blogging is a huge component of what is happening," Higgins said. "They are bridging the gap between opinion and real-time happenings.

Traditional media see blogs as an opportunity to communicate in a more conversational voice, she said. Those outlets maintain ethical and professional standards in their online postings, but their blogs do "get to be edgy," Higgins said.
