While it’s certainly true that social media can be addictive, not all social networking sites are as ‘sticky’ as each other.

The History Of Social Media (1978-2012) [INFOGRAPHIC]

Social media? That’s all Twitter and Facebook, right? And didn’t it start in the last few years?

Not so. Despite appearances, the history of social media traces back as far as the late 1970s, when computer hobbyists Ward Christensen and Randy Suess invented the bulletin board system (BBS).
