Think Microblogging is Hip? Try Nanoblogging!

by , Comments

With all the hype surrounding Twitter these days, it was only a matter of time before someone tried to outdo them and come out with an even faster and more efficient method of communciation.

Enter Flutter. Flutter claims to be a nanoblogging service. Like all good Web 2.0 companies, they launched out of a Stanford dorm room.

Ok, ok this is all a joke. But at the same time, it is a bit of commentary on the current state of social media. Even ABC News was asking last week if anyone is sick of social networking yet?

My personal answer is that people aren't necessarily sick of social networking as they are of all the "gaming" of social media systems. Who's the most popular Twitterer? How many friends do you have on Facebook? Those vain social status games are what I find tiring. What's not tiring is simply connecting and networking. After all, networking is as old as man. It simply adapts to the technology at hand.

What's your answer to ABC's question? Does social media warrant the hype? Leave your response in the comment section below.

In the meantime, enjoy this mockumentary about the fictional Flutter.
