This popular media timeline infographic depicts a social media timeline. Major launches, landmarks, and other significant events are included. SixDegrees.com, one of the first social media sites, allowed you to create a profile page, create lists of connections, and send messages within networks. Before being purchased for $125 million, the site had approximately one million users... and closed in 2000, though it later made a modest comeback and continues to exist today. Friendster, which debuted in 2002, was intended to be a dating site connecting people with mutual friends. Create a profile, include "status updates," and share your mood. It was also possible to message "friends of friends of friends."
