7 Out of 10 UK Adults Can't Define "Blogging" - 09/28/05 03:57 PM

Despite the popular myth that everyone knows what a Blog is, new research coming out of the UK has shown that 7 out of 10 adults have no idea what "blogging" means. Taxi drivers, hair dressers and pub owners were surveyed.

The results of the survey were backed up by market research conducted independently from the survey. Also, 9 out of 10 UK adults couldn't tell you what podcasting and flashmobbing are, while just 6 out of 10 didn't know what dogging was.

Dogging is the term used for strangers having sex in a public area. Many participants thought that blogging was in connection with dogging. 9 out of 10 of those surveyed, however, did know what broadband was.
