Blogs, for example, have led to the development of news C2B and C2C applications by presenting the opportunity and tools for virtually anyone to express their views easily and to communicate these globally and inexpensively. For instance, Nano-publishing is an application of C2C (and C2B) schemes using low cost online publishing techniques such as blogging (writing weblogs) to target a specific audience.
