The history of social networking

June 22, 2011

As part of our Building Local Activism programme  we will be supporting six communities to use digital technology – including social networking sites such as Facebook and Twitter – to build community activism.

I am therefore finding myself increasingly interested in who uses social networking sites, how social media can be used for social good, and the history of social networking, which the following infographic shows nicely. It seems social networking has a much richer history than many of us would ever have expected.
