Media Has Always Been Social

Social InternetYou mostly agreed with me that media is indeed a language.

Although the ‘social’ has been appended onto it of late, it’s clear that for media to communicate (ahem, which, I presume, is the point), it must inherently be social.

Here is a fabulous infographic from CopyBlogger showing just how social media, and Internet as a whole, has always been.

As I was going through the infographic, I was mentally plotting my own history against the various milestones.

In 2000, where ‘broadband became widely available’, I worked for telecom company, and recall writing the program that looked up whether DSL was available in that area based on a land line number you would enter.

On the other hand, I only jumped on to Meetup last year, and completely missed the entire MySpace thing.

Have fun plotting your own media history against this interesting timeline.
