I have been a fan of Blogging since August 2009. As I have faced many learning skills, activities in the field of Blogging so I have now been watching that the term microblogging is spreading all around the World as a light speed. Once again I got in the search of MicroBlogging keeping Blogging at another side.
First of all I'll discuss a little about Micro-Blogging and then mention the 9 MicroBlogging tools.

Views which are expressed below in this article are generally accumulated from published material from internet especially from white papers and Wikipedia.


This is how Wikipedia describes:-
A form of blogging that allows users to write brief text updates (usually less than 200 characters) and publish them, either to be viewed by anyone or by a restricted group which can be chosenby the user

Microblogging Is a form of multimedia blogging that allows users to send brief text updates or micromedia such as photos or audio clips and publish them, either to be viewed by anyone or by a restricted group which can be chosen by the user. These messages can be submitted ba a variety of means, including text messaging, instant messaging, Email, digital audio or the web. The content of microblog differs from a traditional blog in that it is typically smaller in actual size and aggregate file size. A single entry could consist of a single sentence or fragment or an image or a brief, ten second video. But, still its purpose is similar to that of a traditional blog. Users do microblogging about particular topics that can range from the simple, such as ' What one is doing at given moment,' to the thematic topics, such as sports cars, to business topics, such as promotion of products. Many Microblogs provide short commentry on a person to person level, share news about a company's products and services, or provide logs of the events of one's life.

Now coming up to the topic,

10 Micro-Blogging Tools

Twitter is the key player in space and the company name is used synonymously with microblogging. The free service allows users to post status updates via SMS, Email, or Web Browser. What's more. Twitter has an open platform allowing third party developers to build on top of it.

Tumblr is very clean, slick microblogging platform. Its focus is on somplicity and elegance. Similar to Pownce (I'll mention Pownce later), users can share a variety of things, including text photos, quotes, links, chats, or even videos.

MoodMill is a way to express your mood or current state of being. A sliding scale faciliates this process, while a quick text update completes the personalized service.

Pownce launched microblogging platform with added functionality. On top of messaging, users can quickly and easily share links, files, or events with any or all of his/her contacts. See Pownce itself for more details

May say is what it says, instead of text updates, users can call MySay and say how they are doing today. Then, friends or family can listen via phone, Email or the Web.

Hictu is a service for video microbloggers. A webcam and a mouse click are all that is needed to create a videopost. This streamlined solution saves time and effort for traditional bloggers.

Frazr is also very similar to Twitter. The main difference is one of language. Frazr is focused primarily on the French and German Markets.

IRateMyDay allows you the ability to (Yes, you guessed it) rate your day on a scale of 'Worst' to 'Great.' Users can also provide a short text update to accompany the rating.

So these were the 9 Micro-Blogging platform, I know that I have not explained in detail, the reason is all microblogging tools have mostly same type of features.
