Moblogging Remains Minority Recreation With Only 2.7 million Active User by 2011

According to new research brief from ABI Research, at the end of 2006 there will be about 655,000 active mobloggers worldwide. Unless market conditions change drastically, "moblogging" — the practice of posting personal content, usually photos, from mobile camera phones directly to websites for sharing with friends and the public — will remain a minority recreation for the foreseeable future, according to ABI Research. Even in 2011, when there will be some 3 billion mobile subscribers, a mere 2.7 million are expected to be moblogging. 
The generally poor quality of the pictures made by most camera phones as well as the sometimes clumsy upload processes are not helping either. 

By comparison, the blog population has grown to about 12 million American adults, or about 8% of adult internet users and that the number of blog readers has jumped to 57 million American adults, or 39% of the online population, according to Pew Internet & American Life Project .
