Did Facebook kill the blog meme?

While talking with my wife recently about all those Facebook quizzes, I thought, “Did Facebook kill the blog meme?”

Not sure what a meme is…Go here to learn what a meme is. You can even go here and get a daily meme.

Now, don’t get me wrong, I’m not sad to see them go.

There was a time where blog memes were being posted about every other week. It was becoming really annoying to have to filter through the multiple blog memes to get to actual blog content. But then I stopped seeing them. Maybe it was because the authors of blogs I read stopped participating or got bored with answering so many pointless questions. But I think the blog memes are still around, but now they are undercover as a “Facebook quiz.”

With Facebook, you can share

  • “25 random things about me”
  • “Which ________ are you”
  • “Your top 5 ________”

and the list could go on and on…

And let’s be honest (well, I’ll be honest with you), I am really sick of having to filter through all of this useless Facebook stuff to get to actual pictures, notes, or updates.

But, I’d rather see it on Facebook than on a person’s blog. Let’s leave room in the blogs for what they are intended to be and leave the spilling of useless personal information for your Facebook page.

ps. I’m just glad there have been no “twitter memes” going around. 🙂
