I’ve shared and posted several infographics in the past like the State of the Internet or the World of Facebook but I’m sure this one I’m sharing today is something that many of you will like or find interesting. Social networking is huge and popular these days but do you know how it all started or how people connected in the Internet before the invention of Twitter or Facebook?
OnlineSchools.org created the History of Social Networking Infographic to visually share the rich 30-year history of social networking. Aside from the different facts and figures, it also includes some trivia or fun facts like the first e-mail ever sent contained the message “QWERTYUIOP” or Usenet was the birthplace of flame wars and trolling or that the first version of Myspace was coded only in 10 days. For some these information is old news but for some it’s completely new. Nevertheless I hope you guys enjoy it.
