Abstract: This study covers the learning approaches discussed by the information retrieval community in categorising texts with a specific focus given to blogs within the last ten years. Early research studies were solely focused on general text classification and these techniques were later improved, and applied to classify webpages, and then to blogs due to the similarity of textual content present in these items. We review how blog classification techniques have evolved from the foremost text classification techniques to the recent ones and discuss the future research directions.
Keywords: Blog classification, Blogosphere, Supervised, Semi-supervised, Unsupervised classification.
