How old is social media?

July 4, 2011

Social media is undoubtedly one of the most recent marketing tools out there and has only become popular over the last decade.  However, virtual communication actually happened about 40 years ago with the sending and receiving of the first e-mail.

Angela Nielsen interestingly describes the history of social media and how it has shaped the way we communicate since that first email.

What’s your take on social media? As much as social media is one of the most prevalent and used media in today’s social and corporate world, will Facebook and Twitter have just as much influence on the way we communicate now than it will in another couple of years, or even 5 years?

Jump on the social media bandwagon now, but make sure you’re keeping up to date about the newest available social media tools and sites! You don’t want to get left behind in the virtual world…
