National Day Calendar tells us, “With the launch of Friendster in 2002 and MySpace in 2003, social media became mainstream. Then 2004 brought the founding of the king of social media, Facebook. Twitter encouraged us to be succinct by posting our thoughts with fewer than 140 characters. When we express ourselves better through imagery, Instagram, and Flickr offer all the sharing we can handle. And speaking of video, YouTube is the social place for everything from how-to to pop culture to what not to do with your fireworks on the 4th of July.”
And there is this . . . .
“First, there was the telephone, then the fax machine, and then social media — a revolutionary way of communicating,” writes National Today. “Since its creation, people have been able to connect with each other like never before. Friends and family can connect at any moment, and marketers have been able to reach consumers in an entirely new fashion. In fact, people use social media for an average of 144 minutes every single day. Because of its impact on society over the years, Social Media Day was born on June 30, and it has continued to grow in popularity ever since.”
How about a hat?
Hattingdon does not have a social media hat, but she does have a social media scarf. Design name, Skylar.
There is a lot more about the social media revolution at the link below. Pretty fascinating reading.
