  1. Curious that social media supposedly starts with Friendster. In 2000, AOL had, what 23 million users and community was a big part of that. People had pages with photos and chat and status.

  2. Great infographic. It really highlights the creative ways that businesses have used social media. Since everybody is on social media today, you really need to offer something unique to get people involved and attract attention.
