Before I dive into the meat of this blog post, let me give you some background on why I was inspired to write this post. The inevitable happened.
My mom and dad joined Facebook about 2 weeks ago. After I got over the initial panic that set in, I started reading my mom’s posts. One of the first things she posted was, “Oh so this isn’t a blog(parpahrasing)”. Now I could have just commented on that post and went on about my merry little way.
However, I figured that if my mom, savvy techie that she is, had that question, I bet a lot of other people were wondering the same thing. So here is my attempt to explain the difference between a blog and social media.
The main difference between a blog and social media is that most social media sites don’t have an rss feed. Basically the rss (really simple syndication) feed is what makes your blog a blog and not just a regular website. That is the biggest difference that I can see between a blog and a social media profile.
