Live Journal’s prospects post-layoffs (my comment on ‘s post on the same topic)

Live Journal combines blogging with social networking and as such occupies its own niche. As a blogging platform it’s not as nimble as blogspot, wordpress, or Tumblr, and Facebook is clearly state of the art for pure social networking. I hope it doesn’t fall between those two stools. If, however, it cannot continue independently, rather than folding and disappearing the lesser evil would be being acquired by a more sophisticated blogging platform that aspires to improve its social networking function by importing an existing community of loyal users. Alternatively, and less desirable, it could become a blogging application on Myspace or Facebook.
