What are the Differences Between Message Boards and Weblogs?
An overview of the main differences between message boards and blogs. The author works for a company that specialise in the innovative use of social software in business.
The author states that he’s looking at the way both are standardly used, rather than those that might be using them in a specific way. However, I think that the way that we are using them in Kmet is pretty standard … i.e. blogs are personal, but open and commentable, the discussion boards are group based, all are “equal” as far as starting posts/ adding to them. In our case, the discussion boards are closed to outsiders.
Some nice diagrams as well.
