OK, since the release of Google trends for websites I guess, this was a graph waiting to be posted ... and perhaps it already has been(?), somewhere. In any case, here is a graph of Microblogging "Lucha Libre" (free fight).
Interestingly, despite the frustrating downtimes Twitter has been facing lately, it still reigns supreme. Whats more, others are no where close! One thing to note is that for the last few weeks twitter's trend has been downwards. As much as I love Twitter, I am afraid that it may be losing its momentum, unless they turn around quickly. Personally, it seems like there are fewer conversations happening there right now.
What appeals me these days is FreindFeed. I find that there is a lot more to discover there than on Twitter. Plus the rooms feature is absolutely fantastic and the whole system is built around conversations. No downtime and a quick turn around time for development and new features makes the site exciting and fun. However, any social network is ofcourse only as attractive as the number of active friends you have on it. And despite its nifty toys, friendfeed still has a much smaller early adopter audience. Ditto with pownce and jaiku. Plurk seems like the new kid on the block.
FriendFeed looks like it is going strong! But, I guess only time will tell who will be the microblogging champion!
