A Brief History Of Social Media, de Brett Borders, faz uma interessante memria da micro-informtica e das formas de relao social mediada por computadores, comeando pelo phone phreaking, passando pelos primeiros hackers, as BBSs, a rede USENET, os primeiros chats e browsers, at chegar s redes P2P e as atuais “location-based social networking”. Para uma viso geral desta histria e anllises para entend-la, vejam o meu livro Cibercultura escrito no perodo onde estas questes emergiam.
“Social media isn’t really ‘new.’ While it has only recently become part of mainstream culture and the business world, people have been using digital media for networking, socializing and information gathering – almost exactly like now – for over 30 years”.
