Many of us will read a blog or a social site on a daily basis. Approximately 5.8 million blogs are created everyday with a staggering 77% of internet users reading them everyday [Nick, G, 2019]. Lets firstly define the difference between a blog and a social network.

But is there a way we can make it better? I sometimes will do a post containing questions, or photos and wonder why we can’t do more than just comment and like.

Lets say I post a photo and a certain topic like NATURE and would like others to maybe add something they did that day with or without a short story.

Are we being held back from doing more or becoming more of a community that share, help, or maybe one day touch others with what WE as a community do in a days time.
