Abstract

The public has been widely using blogs for years. Issues are observed regarding blog users' profiles, readership, motivations, identity and privacy, and practices of control. In addition, blogs have been utilized for educational purposes in a few institutions and have been studied in pedagogies and other practical issues. In order to understand the current applications and difficulties of educational blogs, there is a need to learn from social issues of blogs in general because they have been widely used and studied for years. This paper addresses the social issues from the public uses of blogs to explore blogs' implications in the current educational blogs, especially for teacher education programs.
