Blogging is not real communication
Debate Rounds (3)
Blog- an online diary; a personal chronological log of thoughts published on a web page; also called a Weblog. So according to the dictionary, when your blogging you're basically just making an online diary.
Thank you for accepting me in the debate!
I will be arguing blogging IS actually communication.
Here is my argument~
According to multiple sources:
And specifically shown from one of the above definitions of communication:
1. The act of communicating; transmission.
a. The exchange of thoughts, messages, or information, as by speech, signals, writing, or behavior.
b. Interpersonal rapport.
3. communications (used with a sing. or pl. verb)
a. The art and technique of using words effectively to impart information or ideas.
b. The field of study concerned with the transmission of information by various means, such as print or broadcasting.
c. Any of various professions involved with the transmission of information, such as advertising, broadcasting, or journalism.
4. Something communicated; a message.
5. communications A means of communicating, especially:
a. A system, such as mail, telephone, or television, for sending and receiving messages.
b. A network of routes for sending messages and transporting troops and supplies.
6. communications The technology employed in transmitting messages.
7. Biology The transfer of information from one molecule, cell, or organism to another, as by chemical or electrical signals or by behaviors.
a. An opening or connecting passage between two structures.
b. A joining or connecting of solid fibrous structures, such as tendons and nerves.
Blogging (writing on a shared online journal) is qualified as as a form of communication since the ideas, writing, opinions and even possibly speech thanks to videos can be shared with many people, therefore communicating something.
Under your definition:
"communication is to transmit or pass on by speaking or writing."
-You said that
Then blogging is still qualified as "real" bonafide communication because you are actually writing(composing text) in a blog and transmitting it to people on the internet. Even if it is a "personal log of thoughts", it is still published and shared and therefore communicated.
I rest my case
Human beings have been using writing to communicate to people for over a millennia, I don't think that because it is not as personal to write, it is no longer communicating. But just because blogging has a smaller percentage of being used does not make it less communication. Niether does it being less of an, "accurate representation" or "truthfully communicating" make it less communicating. People use deception and inaccurately represent themselves all of the time even in person.
