How do you say "to post something on the internet"? Are there different words for different kinds of posts, for example:
- a blog entry
- a comment
- a piece of information, like a translation or a recipe
- a video or photo
投稿する(とうこうする) is the one you'd most likely see for referring to posting on forums. It means that you've contributed or submitted something.
更新する(こうしんする) is for blog entries and means you've renewed or updated something.
アップする and うpする (or just うp) is for uploading (be they photos, videos, or just generic files). As you'd imagine, the latter is an Internet shorthand which you'll likely encounter on photo sites or something like YouTube and Nico Nico Douga. To thank the uploader for some content that was uploaded, you would say:
Watch for this line when browsing video sites, you'll see it a lot. :)
can be use for those cases, like
and for blog entry 更新する can also be used
and for comments and piece of information 投げる could be one option
I've heard する like Blogするand アップする when referencing putting stuff on the internet.
