PEW Bloggers survey

Recently there was a survery by PEW on blogging and bloggers and quite intresting results have emerged out of it..I found the following the most intresting.

77% of bloggers have shared their own artwork, photos, stories, or videos online, compared with 26% of all internet users.

77% bloggers creating and sharing content!!!..if you are wondering what's so special about this piece of statistics. Check the Bradley Horowitz's "content production pyramid".

and when we relate this pyramid to the facts like, in Wikipedia "10% people create 80% of content", we really understand the importance of creators and synthesizers for the wealth they create through there content. The survey statistics hint at the fact that bloggers are not just scribbling things on the web, but by blogging there experiences they are indirectly taking up the role of creators, synthesizers and creating content which can be consumed by rest of the community.

The pyramid also speaks of creators and synthesizers being consumers themselves and the survey says;

72% of bloggers look online for news or information about politics; by contrast, just 58% of all internet users do so.

other intresting facts include, most of the bloggers love to share content and receive feedback..

87% of bloggers allow comments on their blog and 41% of bloggers say they have a blogroll or friends list on their blog.

fore more interesting facts, you can read the compete report on the survey here
