History of Social Media: From email to Facebook

HISTORY OF SOCIAL MEDIA

There is so much in the news on Social Media — there is even a movie about The Social Network that got Golden Globe and Academy award nominations — that it seems useful to share an “infographic” from the OnlineSchools on the history of social media as it progressed from email in the early ’70s to the current galaxy-wide reach of Facebook.

The 7th birthday of Facebook is this week, having grown 20% larger in terms of active users.
