The History of Social Media

Cendrine Morrouat from Creative Ramblings did a really nice job with this look at the history of social media.  While many want to think it started with MySpace and some can go back further to Friendster or ICQ, Cendrine takes us back to 1969 for the start of “Social Media”.

    Pretty sure Instagram is embedded somewhere in the Facebook logos 🙂

    Hello Raymond,

    Thank you so much for sharing my infographic on your blog!

    For those who wonder why some social media sites are missing, the reason is simple: lack of space. It’s very hard to fit everything without making it look super crowded. So I had to make some hard choices.

    When the infographic was created (2011), Instagram was not as huge as it is today, and Yahoo was still trying to rise from its own ashes.
