Social media result in, New Poll posted.

We only had 11 votes.
However, 81% said they use Facebook more than any other social media.
Okay, I know 11 votes is nothing. On the other hand, the figure of 81% confirms something I've long suspected ever since last fall.
Blogs are falling by the wayside. Long format writing has given way to microblogging. (Facebook, Twitter).
Less news is reported, and more opinions are confused as such. People have shorter attention span. Vocabularies are shrinking: few use words like calumny, epistle, picayune, infinitesimal anymore.
Dostoyevsky would be crestfallen.
Webster shrugs.
Our next poll is over to the right, next to the video bar.
