Study: Liberal blogs more participatory, conservative more hierarchical

Posted: 04/29/10 09:51 PM

A new study of the political blogosphere by researchers at Harvard’s Berkman Center for Internet and Society finds conservative blogs are more likely to employ hierarchical structures that highlight the work of one author, and include limited community participation. Liberal blogs, by contrast, are more likely to be participatory, and include more calls to political action.
