Every Industry Association should have a Blog and Forum attached to their websites as a means to communicate to their membership. It is a great way to pass on information and more and folks are getting their information in this way. Industry Blogs seem to be a very powerful tool indeed and to that point of truth an Industry Association must rise to the occasion to insure that their membership gets the most out of the Blog Initiative efforts.
It is incumbent of those who participate on Industry Blogs to understand the value of this communication tool and the rewards that can easily be reaped by pondering the most abstract of thought and tackling the most difficult multi-dimensional challenges we all face. You see, as the Internet changes, social networking sites pop-up and search engines modify algorithms the change will be the only measurement to guide the usage of the Industry Blog.
Industry Blogs also need a set of guiding principles (guidelines) to help the information flow on this Blog then as this group of members, vendors and associates grow so they can meet all those challenges. It has widely been researched in the Psychological Sciences that such Blog venues when allowed constructive input tend to bring exponential gains in valuable feedback in an industry.
Most Blogs do follow these trends, in fact one in observation might say Blogs are an example of how Industry Communication can be done better by leveraging the flow of information, innovation and ideas to their full extent.
As I study Industry information flows and the processes that guides a Blogs and Internet Forums and how they help those industries enjoy leaps in technologies and advance, it seems that this is a great strategy to leverage. We are fortunate to be living in this time period where information flows like water on the net.
