WordPress.org is the content management software most popular of all, used by more than half the world pages that use manager, but under the same name but different domain name extension: WordPress.com, is the online blogging community more important, surpassing even the popular Tumblr bought by Yahoo for more than one billion, and although the WordPress.org CMS is well known, the community behind WordPress.com is not short, and both are only three letters of difference.
However, I must say that at first could only be considered WordPress.com platform to create blogs, but now thanks to the efforts to socialize blogs hosted and interactions between users of the parent company: Automattic, today is entire community connected to each other, in which we will see why it is worth create an account.
Having a blog hosted on WordPress.com:
WordPress.com community has an audience of 395 million people watching more than 4.1 billion pages monthly. These figures are shocking and compelling enough to consider writing your own blog on it to reach that audience, or maybe your second blog in this great community. But know that if you decide you are not alone, because current WordPress.com users create about 47.8 million new posts and comment 62.4 million times a month, as you can see on their stats page public.
Taking blog, as well as publishing, you reblogging other posts, give me like and interact with the community and allow its members to interact with you. And at all times accounts with activity notifications and achievements of milestones achieved motivate always continue and improve your blogging.
No Blog hosted (creating an account on WordPress.com only):
If you already have a blog on another platform or self hosted WordPress, you can also take advantage of its benefits simply creating you an account without associated blog.
With it, you can follow other blogs, your avatar appearing in them, and taking them to your profile Gravatar.com, where in addition to your profile pictures to the comments, you can put your links to your company, your other blogs or projects, and profiles to your social networks.
Also, if you follow the WordPress.com blogs +Follow button, you will read through the reader WordPress, in the url http://wordpress.com/#!/Read/ or decide whether you receive by mail, how often, or as a periodic summary, or if you just want to reflect your affinity to your blog without receiving email updates and reading it from the reader.
With the account does not have the option of reblogging, because you do not have a blog where you do it, but if you do I like and comment without loggearte again. And if you take advantage of the benefits of having the JetPack plugin you can enjoy many advantages by merging the experience of the blogs hosted with yours self hosted.
In short, WordPress.com is no longer just a tool or platform, but a community or social network very compact and effective which can be very interesting to be present be present and see its possibilities as well as one more like: Facebook, Twitter, etc..
If you already have the other advantages of WordPress.com you see? Is there anything that will convince you at all?
