Is blogging a slog? Some young people think so
(AP) -- Could it be that blogs have become online fodder for the - gasp! - more mature reader?
A new study from the Pew Internet and American Life Project has found that young people are losing interest in long-form blogging, as their communication habits have become increasingly brief, and mobile.
Danah Boyd, a fellow at Harvard's Berkman Center for Internet and Society, says that when it comes to blogs, "people focus on using them for what they're good for and turning to other channels for more exciting things."
Those channels might include anything from social networking sites to others that feature games or video.
