Blogs might have stopped Hitler.

I think that for certain, it would have been hard for the SS to hide the Final Solution as long as it did, and that would have forced the US and allies to bomb the camps and the railroads as refugees were begging them to do.

Though, one questions whether that is so, because Rwanda happened during the internet age as did Bosnia and Darfur. The internet just exposed that the US was not as concerned with human rights as we'd like to think.

I'm going with the "blogs would have let Hitler spread his message even further" interpretation.

Besides, lots of people knew about the Final Solution. It took a lot of people to organize and carry it out. Even the US had an inkling (or outright knowledge) and did nothing. Widespread knowledge does not mean widespread action.
