Blogs can have an influence on the popularity of a product, both positively and negatively. Organizations can use blogs as a form of Internet advertising to spread the word about their product or service. However, blogs can also do damage to a brand if a blogger posts about having a bad experience with a particular product.

Write a 1- to 2-page paper in which you identify the blog and answer the following questions
Does the blogger say positive or negative things about the product or service?
What was the blogger’s intended message? Did the discussion achieve what was intended?
