MY VIDEO: History of Social Media

I produced this video for work to summarize how online media has evolved over the past 20 years. This video timeline is also featured on my company’s blog at

The timeline starts at the beginning of the 20th Century because that’s when more people started gaining access to the Web. The increase in personal computers and the launch of early Web browsers enabled people to create their own content and connect with one another.

This started the Tech Bubble from 1995 to 2000, as anyone could build a website, start an online business and go public on the stock market. The bubble crashed in 2000 after many of the online businesses turned out to be bad investments. But ventures such as Google and Wikipedia continued to evolve, leading to new ideas such as Facebook, Youtube and Twitter.

Now social networks dominate the way humans across the world communicate with one another. And as new concepts emerge and old ideas evolve, will be there to blog about them.
