Ten years ago, the concept of “social media” was so new, most couldn’t define it, let alone testify to having experienced or used it to any meaningful degree. But in the last decade, that has changed markedly.
“A decade is a long time – especially in the world of social media,” says Irfan Ahmad of SocialMediaToday.
“Today’s major social networks barely existed ten years ago, and early mainstays like Friendster and MySpace hardly resemble their former selves,” he adds. “And a decade later, we are Liking, Tweeting, Pinning, Plussing, and following more than ever.”
