Social Media From 1792 On...
 
Stuart Bruce provides from his friend Chris Norton, managing director of Prohibition PR, a mind-boggling infographic on "The Evolution of Social Media" starting in 1792 with...the telegraph in France. The latest addition came in 2013 with Snapchat, which makes it possible to post material that self-destructs in seconds. And thus is pictured a great tradition of human connectivity, leading to...disconnectivity. It's not that Snapchat posts don't say anything, and that the telegraph made it possible to start saying too much. It's that we've been great, over time, in finding ways to inform and amuse each other remotely. But we haven't necessarily been pulling together as people with a common stake on this planet. What kind of communication system will it take to accomplish that?
