August 27, 2004 Mitsue-Links Releases Blog Configuration Service for Business Activities

Mitsue-Links Co., Ltd. (Nakano-ku, Tokyo; Representative Director: Masashi Takahashi; hereinafter "Mitsue-Links") has released a new Blog configuration service, which enables blogs to be applied to businesses.

Blogs have been receiving widespread coverage in magazines and other media. The features of blogs include their openness as a medium, enabling a great deal about the writer to be conveyed, and the ease with which articles can be added or revised and communication with readers facilitated. On conventional websites, communication is usually one-way, from writers to readers. But RSS enables revised blogs to be conveyed efficiently to readers, and comments and trackback functions facilitate feedback from readers.

Even though blogs are a tool for revision, they are also equipped with powerful functions for communication. Blogs enable richer associations, not only with existing customers but also with potential customers, and they also facilitate flexible information sharing among employees and departments when used in-house.
