Map of the blogosphere: revisiting the A-listers, needlessly

Discover Magazine has come up with a map of the blogosphere, showing the top blogs as bright stars and the rest of 70 million or so blogs as mere specs of dust in the blog universe.

Star dust, if you will.

The magazine took the help of ‘Social media expert’ Matthew Hurst to build the map. I have had enough of experts. Actually, the guy works for Nielsen Buzz Metrics and now that he has been mentioned in the mainstream media, he is now an ‘expert’.

I fail to see anything worthy coming out this map.

A good PR exercise for the magazine and for Nielsen Buzzmetrics for sure. Last year, it was the New York Magazine whichdid this.

Doesn't tell us anything we didn't know before.
