I'm putting my comments here on new reblogging feature, since my comments are not being reposted under the original WordPress "press release" on this new feature. Maybe it's stuck technically in pipeline or something else?
Here is what I said:
Since still don’t have time to fully test this today..
Re reblogging someone else’s post (or my own) to another 2nd blog: Does it at least force the reblogger to take along the original author’s name and original source blog plus post article where the posted article is originally located? This could partially be a compromise on still identifying “credit” the original author.
But I understand the serious concern about this in terms of content theft and plagariasm en masse.
Sigh. I sure hope original author, title is embedded permanently in that reblogged article with original link. (If you think about it, it’s like photocopying 40 articles by 40 different authors and binding it into 1 book or sticking it into the binder. It is violation of copyright particularily if next person is making money from it or using the package to further their own notoreity on false accomplishments…)
Blogging is a form of social networking because it can allows users to post comments and engage in threaded discussion. I’m not sure how much value “Like” is going to add except there are lazy folks who will only choose certain things without great personal analysis because 100,000 other smilar folks “Liked” it too but some other good/better stuff got ignored because no one “Liked it”.
A list of a person’s ‘Likes’, I guess. It sounds abit juvenile. I mean a person creates lists of resources and organizes them in logical categories. There IS already a system by bookmarking that truly implies “Liking”.or at least another web resource worth looking at — good or bad/oppositional.
I also would like to know if one can "unreblog" a post.
The blog I need help with is thirdwavecyclingblog.wordpress.com.
