No-one's Reading This

According to a survey by the British Market Research Bureau, more people than ever before know about blogs. But that doesn't mean they're reading them:

"Awareness of blogs dramatically increased in the three months to the end of February, with the proportion of internet users in Britain who have never heard of a blog, or blogging, falling from 45% in the previous quarter three to 30%, according to the BMRB survey.

"But despite this ...only 10% - around 2.8 million people - of internet users view a weblog once a month or more."


  • Lower numbers than I'd have expected.

    Although I wonder what the percentage is in the USA, where such things seem to be far more popular. Things like MySpace, Facebook, Xanga and similar sites seem to be the major fad around most universities. (Heck, I think I'm one of the very few at this college who doesn't have an account on either of those three.)
