Does Anyone remember what came before Face Book?
I see a lot of messages and hubs and media all about Face Book, BUT there was something bigger than that before that even was though of. It was MSN Groups. Has anyone remember that or have been in one?
My-Space is the social network that came before Face Book.
From my perspective (which may be a too-narrow one), I'd say My Space or Live Journal (Liv Journal? I wasn't all that familiar with that one) seemed to be The Thing (but Facebook has evolved so much from what it started to be maybe I'm only see that mainly-youth-focused aspect of things as far as "predecessor" goes.
Face to face conversation where people actually look at another in the eye and spoke seriously!
Is it friendster? hi5? multiply? those are what i had before i had facebook.
Talking to people and inviting them over to your house for tea! Only joking, it was IOC
There were Yahoo Chat Rooms or any chat room like AOL, they seemed to have vanish in way of forums.
Yes Lady Guinevere, I used to have two MSN groups that were reasonably popular, also Yahoo Groups which are still going but aren't as good. I think Myspace was the first real social media site.
Friendster is what I remember. But there was also multiply, which was mostly used for businesses.
Peace, Quiet and Privacy !
Possibly face to face conversation or if further away a letter.
