Blogs vs wikis l.jpg

Blogs vs wikis

“The key difference to keep in mind is that a true wiki is actively collaborative, that is, anyone can edit the document at any point in the document, whether that is to insert a comma, strike a sentence, or add an additional page. Blogs tend to function more like monologues, or pronouncements from the author(s) to which readers may append their own comments without the ability to alter the original blog text.” -- Wikipedia
