Social Media Day-Remember These?
It’s officially Social Media Day! Happy June 30th! I thought I would write about Social Media that has gone away.
Netscape-ah, Netscape. How I loved you. Such a change from Internet Explorer. Then AOL bought you, version 8 looked like AOL and I bailed. Too bad.
AOL-I wonder how many millions of people are on the internet today due to AOL disks. Remember those ubiquitous disks you could find-just about anywhere? I wonder if there are any left at all.
Does anyone remember being on AOL, getting charged by the minute, and went you tried to log off, it “updated” for another five minutes?
I still hear the “You’ve got mail” when I visit my parents.
My first web site was on Geocities. Remember how it was arranged in neighborhoods? Heaven forbid you want to install a garden web site in the arts and crafts neighborhoods.
Some of the neighborhoods:
Area 51: Science fiction and fantasy
Athens-Education, literature, poetry, and philosphy
Baja-Four Wheelings, SUVs, off-roading, adventure trave
I have found my very first web site! A fan page for author Anne Rivers Siddons! It’s not too bad for the 2000’s! Of course, it’s only the splash page, the links don’t seem to work.
Remember My Space? I don’t. I had one friend who had a page there. When you opened it, obnoxious music spilled out. Bad obnoxious music. I never went back. I never knew another friend who was on it.
Remember when you would get different results using different search engines?
Remember when there were lots of search engines out there? Alta Vista? Dogpile? Fetch?
Ah, Zune. Microsoft’s Failed iPod. That being said, I love my Zune! I still use it! Check out my Pinterest Page on Zune!!
My husband is still using the 2007 2nd generation Zune. Granted, he doesn’t download anything to it, it’s just his little portable boombox.
I use two HD Zune’s that have weathered multiple sweaty/rainy 100 mile races and still function! It will be a sad day when my Zune’s finally meet the big electrical pile in the sky.
What social media do you miss? Do you still have a Zune?
