Really Social Syndication: A Conceptual View on Microblogging

Martin Böhringer
Chemnitz University of Technology, Germany


Abstract
This working paper presents a formal comparison of microblogging and the traditional blogging stack facilitating RSS. The aim is to provide a better understanding of the differences and similarities of these two technologies. Our findings suggest that they use the same concepts (channels and items) but differ in the support of interaction between them. However, we argue that the foundation for the richer interaction experience of microblogging is its lack of interoperability and its centralistic approach. Therefore, future research should focus on combining the advantages of both RSS technology and microblogging.
