The Timeline of Social Media [Infographic]



Social Media Week is a leading news platform and worldwide conference that curates and shares the best ideas and insights into social media and technology's impact on business, society, and culture.

The face of the internet revolutionized in the early 2000s with the emergence of social media taking the entire world by storm.

It wasn’t always like this. Believe it or not, there was a time when a world existed outside of the socially enticing digital forums and people used private diaries instead of public sites to share their daily happenings.

All this changed when the first sites of online communication were introduced.

Let’s embark on the journey on how this digital innovation turned our mundane world into a truly global communication tool.
