The Evolution of Social Networking [Infographics]

As we enter another decade of the Internet, perhaps it is time we look back at what has come before in social networking, and where it may be going in the future.

Here’s a visually organized look at the past 40 years or so of social networking history, from Usenet to AIM to Friendster and beyond. This particular infographic comes with some fun facts; for example, did you know that the first version of MySpace was coded in just 10 days?

Users with profiles on social-networking websites put up pictures and videos and interact with friends and family at times and places that are convenient to them. On social-networking websites like Twitter, Facebook and MySpace, users connect to friends, join groups, learn about events to attend, buy tickets, play games, chat and more. It seems like every second person has a profile on one of these websites, and everyone else is fast catching up.

    Excellent infographic on the evolution of social networking!

    I’d like to add that Google+’s Hangouts feature is so far the biggest innovation in the history of social networks.
