In 1971 the first e-mail was sent It was then later in 1978 were BBS (Bulletin Board System) came about which allowed data to be exchanged via phone line with other users. Also in 1978 the first copies of (early) web browsers were distributed through “USENET” which was the birthplace of “flame wars” and “trolling”.16 years later some of the first social networking sites were created. One of the first (and most memorable) was Geocities.com. It’s concept was for users to create their own websites. A couple years later AOL Instant Messenger was launched popularizing instant messaging. In 2002 Friendster.com launched, “pioneering” the online connection of real-world friends. In the following years many other social networking sites were created. Among them: LinkedIn, Myspace, Facebook, Twitter, Tribe.net and countless others we all love today.* As of January 2012 Facebook.com has hit the 1 Billion users mark.
I chose these 15 because they are some of the more popular ones, but there are countless others out there and with the internet evolving more and more each day new websites are always being created. With almost all social websites there is also an app available so it can be accessible where ever you go 24/7. They are available on almost all electronic devices such as smart phones, eBooks, iPads, mp3 players and more.
What is the definition of “Social Media” per se? Well, first social media comes in many different forms, other than social networking sites (i.e. facebookLinkedin) it also includes internet forums, e-mail, newspapers, magazines, blogs, wikis, podcasts, television, radio and even photographs. It is an easy way of communicating with others, and it has the ability to reach a global audience large or small. Social media gives businesses a chance to understand what its consumers really want out of your company and their needs. Consumers also have the chance to let you know how they feel about your products or services via feedback or questionnaires.
