Facebook recently announced they were hiring 10,000 moderators, and I know Twitter has a large staff as well. I expect one mistake that these larger social networks made early on was hiring too many programmers, and not enough curators. For Micro.blog we always want people who can interact with the community and stay ahead of any issues.
I’ve been getting heavily into micro.blog over the last week or so. I like the philosophy behind it, which comes through in this interview with its creator. Micro.blog is all about the open web – you own your own content. If Twitter has you down, or you have a blog that has been stagnating, check out micro.blog.
