A Detailed History Of Social Media - Infographic

A Detailed History Of Social Media - Infographic | Social Media Advocacy |

Do you know the history of social media? Think we'll remember Facebook in 20 years? This detailed timeline is a must-see.

Social media began decades before the Facebook era. It started, more or less, with CompuServe and Arpanet back in 1969. A couple years later, the first-ever email was sent.

It has evolved over the past few decades into a powerful tool, as seen in this social media history timeline. With so much that’s happened over the past few decades, we can only guess what’s coming next for social media.

This informative infographic tells the story of how people have been social on the internet, from the birth of email and Usenet to up-to-date tools like Pinterest and Google+.

Interesting timeline of events, statistics + trends, as they pertain to the 'social history of the internet'...

The format and graphics enable a strong and clear visual understanding of the content being shared and a straightforward means to compare various points in time with regard to the internet in general, as well as specific social media platforms.
