The breakthrough that is MyBlogLog

UPDATE: There’s been an explosion of coverage this morning on this announcement. TechMeme is doing a great job of capturing the links out there. Here’s a sample: #

  6. It certainly can be disconcerting to see your movements within the blogosphere tracked like that. But at the same time, I’m finally meeting some of my readers – which is really interesting. I find myself curiously viewing my Recent Readers list just to see who’s been there. (I know, I’m a nosy bastard.)

    Also – and I’ve been playing with this theory just recently – I wonder if MyBlogLog is turning the blogosphere into a social network. I mean, it already IS a social network. But unlike Friendster, MySpace, Facebook, Y!360, etc, you weren’t always able to easily bounce from connection to connection (unless the blog had a blogroll, but then the same blogs would appear on everyone’s blogrolls).

    With the ability to create and traverse new connections like this, especially somewhat ephemeral, transitory, and possibly accidental connections, I can’t help but wonder if MyBlogLog will give rise to a new form of a social network.
