BlueSpiceSocialBlog provides the SocialEntity type blog.

Warning!Pages in the namespaces SocialEntity and User are indexed by search engines by default until version 3.1.13. If you run a public wiki with an earlier version, you should exclude these namespaces from being searchable unless you want these pages to be indexed by public search engines.
