Social networking is a term that emerged in the late 1990s. It is used to describe a number of pages on the Internet that serve to socialize and communicate users.
The first known social networking site was SixDegrees.com. Prior to its emergence, the concept of internet and web search was oriented solely to searching content and information on various pages. Communication could only take place through the forum, assuming that certain websites owned the forum.
The first message sent over the ARPANET was from Leonard Kleinrock’s UCLA computer by student programmer Charley Kline at 10:30 pm on October 29, 1969, to the second node at Stanford Research Institute’s computer in Menlo Park, California.
The message was simply “Lo” instead of the intended word,”login.”
“The message text was the word login; the l and the o letters were transmitted, but the system then crashed. Hence, the literal first message over the ARPANET was lo. About an hour later, having recovered from the crash, the SDS Sigma 7 computer effected a full login” (Wikipedia article on Arpanet, accessed 12-26-2012).
From the Arpanet came the Internet that we use and know today.
It took a decade for Arpanet to replace the internet, and another decade for the birth of The World Wide Web.
And then various websites started appearing.
Many have failed, but there have been some who have made their history in the history of the internet.
December 20, 1990 is the day the British computer scientist published the first website.
From his NeXT computer, Tim Berners Lee published a text on the Web explaining the concept of hypertext and server setup.
This document has not been shared with the general public for nearly a year, when he revealed his creation to his friends with alt.hypertext.
It took a few more years and the arrival of the first Mosaic browser for the web to catch up.
Jeff Bezos knew he wanted to start his own e-commerce business before he knew what to sell.
After researching the largest mail order service, he began selling books.
By 1996, Amazon was making millions by selling books through its site.
Bezos expanded his business to music, movies, clothing, household items and other items. Now on Amazon we can buy whatever we need (from needle to locomotive).
Yahoo was published in 1994. Under another name. It was originally not an internet search engine.
“Jerry and David’s Guide to the World Wide Web” was a web directory that provided links to a much smaller Internet than we know it today.
The changes followed in a year. Jerry Young and David Filo changed their site name to Yahoo. They introduced a tool that allowed users to search the directory.
Yahoo was the governing engine until 1998. He had over 100 million page views a day.
At the very beginning, Pierre Omidar’s Auction Website shared the domain with several other sites.
Over the next three years, only one domain became a billion-dollar business. By 1998, the auction site changed its name to eBAy.
After surviving the first Internet bubble, eBay continued to grow. In 2002, eBay acquired PayPal.
eBAy is now a place where you can find everything you need to know, whether it’s something second hand or new.
Today we all have a private email address on Hotmail.Hotmail was launched at a time when many people were not using email. Those who did, had cumbersome inboxes tied to their ISPs.
That all changed with the introduction of a free (but with ads) webmail that could be opened from any browser.
Hotmail was not the only one offering this service. It quickly became the biggest thanks to a viral marketing scheme.
The trick was simple – each email sent from Hotmail had a signature that instructed the person reading the email to open their free Hotmail email.
Rotten is the original originator of the bizarre Internet. He was the aggregator for all the worst on the internet.
Rotten was founded in response to an attempt by the US government to restrict free speech on the Internet.
The site regularly posted images of executions that went wrong and medical bizarreness.
For many young internet users, Rotten posed the greatest challenge – watching its content without feeling was a final victory.
When opening Google, it says:
Our mission is to organize the world’s information and make it universally accessible and useful.
Originally called RackRub, this search engine was renamed Google in 1996.
Over the years, the company has grown into a true giant of online advertising, cloud technology and the mobile world. However, the Google.com domain has not changed much.
The main idea of this site was to somehow represent the base of all human knowledge.
The site today has over 10 million articles that can be read in hundreds of languages.
With this growth, so did the respect.
Wikipedia was by no means considered a reliable source ten years ago. That is seriously changing now.
The Wayback Machine
Five years after the founders of Internet Archives started taking screenshots of early sites, they decided to put it all online.
Since then, the service has grown significantly and has hundreds of billions of websites in its archive.
Therefore, it is a great resource for anyone who wants to see what a site looked like 2, 5 or 10 years ago.
When people talk about this site today, they talk about MySpace that no longer exists.
We’re talking about the site where Tom was the first best friend to every user, where they carefully maintained their playlists and learned to code.
In fact, at the very beginning, this site was much more popular than Facebook.
But a lot has changed over time.
These days, MySpace exists more as a time capsule than an active and serious social network.
The Pirate Bay
What Amazon did for books, that’s what Pirate Bay has done since 2003 for music, movies and software.But there was one key difference – Pirate Bay offered everything for free because it was pirated material.Despite numerous attempts to kill this site, Pirate Bay still stands firm today.
Pinterest, Inc. is a social media web and mobile application company. It operates a software system designed to enable saving and discovery of information on the World Wide Web using images and, on a smaller scale, GIFs and videos.The site was founded by Ben Silbermann, Paul Sciarra, and Evan Sharp. Pinterest has reached 300 million monthly active users as of August 2019.
Pinterest CEO Ben Silbermann summarized the company as a “catalogue of ideas” that inspires users to “go out and do that thing”, rather than as an image-based social network.
Five months after it was unveiled, Pinterest has opened registration for anyone who wanted to create visual mood boards. It surprised everyone who doubted it by attracting more content than YouTube, Reddit and Linkedin did.
This was a big win for a site that many initially wrote off as a confusing site for ladies.
But this was true because 80 percent of his audience were women.
Catherine Fake and her husband Stuart Butterfield did not come up with the idea of inventing a photo sharing service when they launched Flickr in 2004.
But Flickr became such a service.
In its best days, Flickr was the best source for hosting images. Yahoo acquired Flickr in 2005.
The next few years were turbulent. Flickr slowly began to lose the territory that Facebook and Instagram had begun to conquer.
Facebook has come a long way since the day it was known as thefacebook.com.
Mark Zakerberg’s site has grown into the largest social network in the world with over one billion active users over the years.
YouTube was launched in May 2005. He achieved dizzying success very quickly. A year and a half later, it was bought by Google for $ 1.65 billion in shares.
Today it is the largest video platform without which many would not be able to imagine their lives.
When Reddit came to the Web in 2005, this community forum was never stopped growing.
The so-called “front page of the internet” now attracts hundreds of millions of users who visit more than 130.00 active communities, covering almost every topic you can think of.
Twitter gained popularity in 2009, though it was created in 2006.
A decade after this explosion, Twitter was able to help revolutionize, strengthen dictatorial regimes, and create some pretty bizarre celebrities.
The military data released by this site in 2010 was not the first time Wikileaks had discovered something that the world’s powers would rather hide.
But that data leak put the site on the map of all internet users.
There is not much mystery about the success of this site, launched in 2007 with the radical idea that people on the internet want to see nudity.
Three years later, MindGekk, the company that owns the most popular porn sites on the Internet, bought PornHub and turned it into the largest pornographic hab in the world.
2011 when this site was launched, online commercial giants were more than well positioned.
But their refusal to sell illicit drugs opened up an unexpected market.
And Ross Ulbriht filled it.
His site allowed people to fill their virtual carts with a number of illegal drugs and drugs.
Silk Road worked because it could only be accessed through the Tor Network, which made sure that buyers and sellers remained anonymous.
And when that anonymity was compromised, it stopped working.
Ulbriht was arrested in 2013, and the site was subsequently shut down.
LinkedIn is the only social networking business that allows its users to present themselves to the world with their experience, knowledge and achievements.LinkedIn is the first business social networking site, aimed at business networking of potential employers with employees. LinkedIn is a professional social network that currently gathers 89 million users across Europe, with around 300 million worldwide.
„Our mission is to create world-changing solutions that make people safer, healthier, and more productive“. Inventing a better future together-is a motto of LinkedIn social network.
