Reported in Malaysiakini, soon-to-be-retiring Energy, Water and Communications Minister Lim Keng Yaik told parliament that a Microsoft survey titled 'A Windows Live Report' in August last year, discovered that 63% of respondents blog for entertainment and 49% blog to communicate with family and friends.
He said that the survey showed only 3% of bloggers are into citizen journalism.
With Lim giving us a political blogger population of only 3% out of 115% (wink wink, yes I know), this should reassure the government we aren’t all that fearsome a political force! So do leave us alone ;-)
Lim assured the House: "The survey also concluded that political blogs are the least preferred, where only two percent of respondents visit these blogs. On the other hand, 81 percent said they prefer to frequent blogs operated by family and friends."
I wonder what the other 32% visitors were/are doing?
I wonder too whether the Microsoft survey had been about Malaysia?
But I still like the first ‘grim
I don’t mind their lying - I experienced that all the time ;-) 'tis my sorry lot - but I am still looking for the 80% sweeties in vain. Damn it, has kaytee been so utterly hopeless?
