Blogs – Trends
„Accoding to Tapscott and Williams (2006), young people born between 1977 and 1996 choose to interact online as content creators. These so called „N-Geners“ believe that blogs and social networking sites are valuable because they allow individuals to communicate using „unfiltered self-expression“ (Tapscott & Williams, pp. 52-53). While critics argue that all of these blogs choices and opinions lead to oversaturation in the market, young people seem to like the amount of choices and interactivity that the current blogosphere provides.“
