Love this infographic: It wasn’t called “social” in the early days and its depiction has evolved quite dramatically especially in the last decade. I found it in this blog post: http://www.inspiredm.com/the-history-of-social-media-infographic/. ; Perhaps, this was the genesis as it reads, “40 years ago the first email was sent. The email simply said ‘qwertyuiop’, and was sent to the computer sitting next to it.” Enjoy!
I saw this on Iphone Hacks and I had to put it up. This is the reason I’ve held on to my 3G and chose to forego the iPhone 4. This might be worth waiting for:
It was THE company in its heyday. It was set to take over the world — the destination where people globally went to everyday. There was a time when every Yahoo! past and present bled “purple”. But the company has, over time, made some catastrophic errors in how it managed its NEW acquisitions; in deprioritizing development of community properties; in making the wrong assumption that display media was the ad model here and in the future; and don’t forget in handing over the search market to Google when it clearly had the upper hand. My hat off to Carol Bartz–the highest paid female in the U.S. at $40 Million–you have your work cut out for you!
