What will happen to the blog?

Kids and teenagers doesn't follow blogs anymore, and they sure won't start their own. So what will happen to the blogs in the future when none writes them anymore? Well personally I believe the normal amateurish, more personal blog will vanish. Those users will move to social networks, forums, video streaming services, where they will post their opinions and discuss with others. The ones that tries to make a living on blogging, will move to large media hubs and create content together with others, or they evolve their own blog into a media website that will have all the content the visitors want to consume. Videos, podcasts, articles, images, communities and more.

So their will be two kinds of “bloggers” in the future:

  1. The one that lives on social networks and discuss with others
  2. The one that create content for a living for a large media hub on the web
