Micro blogs are different from traditional blogs. They are small is size hence can only allow people to exchange little content for example pictures or videos, send text messaging.

Blogs can be referred to as diaries that are posted only. A blog can either be part of or be a whole website in that sense. Blogs are mostly used in providing guidance information, book or movie reviews and post comments on a particular topic or on social issues.

Forums are an online discussion areas where particular issues are tackled. People express their views on a given topic according to what they know about it. It’s also possible for forums have or contain different topics and also have sub forums.

A posts are better when it comes to describing the current mood that particular user is in. For example a post on Facebook describes what are on those users’ thoughts.

Blog – Is a word that comes from blending the word web and log. It may be a website itself or just a part of a website. Blogs are commentary, description of events, or can be pictures, video, or audio, which were entered by an individual. The blog is also used as a verb which means to maintain or add entries to a blog. There are blogs where visitors are allowed to leave comments and messages, some are just for reading -which were called static websites. Types of blogs are named according to their entries, though most of the blogs are texts, there are others focuses on art – which is called art blog, photographs – called Photoblog, videos – maybe called video blogging or vlogging in short, music -MP3 blog, and audio or podcasting.

  • Microblogging is also a type of blogging. Its only difference from a usual blog is its size, both its content and file size is much smaller than of a traditional blog. Microbloggers also post topics as same as traditional bloggers -like about their daily activities.
  • Post is the content or entry that you write in your blogs or forums.

Forum in the internet is called internet forum or message board. People use this site to discuss or  converse in the form of a posted message. They have the same use with chat rooms but these messages are temporarily archived, and can be erased, can only be shown, or let you access by the moderator's approval. A topic in a forum is called thread, which can be replied as many people as they wish to, the discussions are hierarchical or in a tree-like structure. Some forums don't need you to sign-up in order to read and post something, you can also go anonymous.

POST is anything that you put on the internet freely. If you have Facebook, anything you put into your shoutout or in your wall is what we call post. MICROBLOGS are short updates about whatever you're doing- less than a paragraph. This is what twitter does, and Facebook does for status updates.

A BLOG is basically an online journal or diary – a blogger will post whatever they want. Usually a blog will have a specific topic- anything like cooking, technology, beauty products, accessories, travel and tourism, etc. 

A FORUM is a website that allows someone to start a thread, and others can respond to it – often they ask for advice or feedback. Forums may have as many as a few hundred of these threads active at any time. Most forums require you to be a registered user to post.
