There’s nothing new under the sun?

There’s an assumption that, just because social media keeps evolving and we start to use new tools, that ‘social media’ is a new phenomenon. Nothing could be further from the truth.


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+.

Lauren Moss's insight:

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.

5 Vintage Versions of Modern Social Media from Centuries Ago

5 Vintage Versions of Modern Social Media from Centuries Ago | visualizing social media | Scoop.it
From Voltaire's status updates to Edison's viral videos, or what Diderot has to do with data visualization.

We’ve previously made the case that everything builds on what came before, yet our human tendency is to inflate and overestimate the novelty of our ideas. Today, we turn to five concepts from the centuries of yore remarkably similar to the central premises of five of today’s social web darlings, in the hope of illustrating that, indeed, creativity is combinatorial and innovation incremental.

A History of Social Media [Infographic] | visualizing social media | Scoop.it

The very purpose of the Internet (every blog, website and virtual gathering place within it) is to let people connect, communicate, and collaborate.
