Blogs by Americans in
Paris (to be developed : give me the address
of your blog!)
| DID YOU KNOW THAT.....the French are
the world's most intensive bloggers ? According to the
International Herald Tribune July 28, 2006, they spend more time
blogging : more than an hour a day (USA : 12 minutes, UK and
Germany : less than 5 minutes), with 60% of the population of
internet users visiting blogs (USA : 34%, UK : 40%, Germany :
36%). More than 3 million have created a blog. Why ? Maybe because
the French, more than others, like to speak about themselves
? Compared with American blogs, "...French blogs are longer,
more critical, more negative, more egocentric and more provocative..."
. Some observers say that "...blogs have been embraced by
ordinary people and this will flip the rigid power pyramid of
the French society...."
