..crossposted from my blog
Out of sheer curiosity, I've added a poll to the sidebar of my blogger blog
. This is one of the new features rolled out by "blogger in draft
" . (Other features are: video upload from within the editor; a google search engine which can be set to search: your blog, your blog and sites you link to from within your posts, and the 'whole' web.)
The poll question "How Many Online IDs Do You Have", is one that my fake identities and myself have been asking on and off, since we read that "MySpace Hits 100 Million Accounts
" in Mashable a year ago....
Obviously the poll is just a bit of fun . However, in my "real life" I am constantly surprised by the seeming contradiction between the statistics
and how few of my acquaintances/colleagues/employers even know what social sites and web2.0 are. Could the statistics be based on the multiple IDs of users like myself? If so, what, if any, are the implications?
