2009: The Year of Twitter and Facebook
We are about the end of 2009. Shall we have an outlook of 2009? What made you special this year? Are you a web developer or a website or blog owner? Then definitely you may come across with the two famous Social Networking sites Twitter and Facebook. I think this year forced us to move form Orkut to Facebook and from blogspot to Twitter. Why this is happening? I don’t know 🙂
Today, most of us can’t live without using twitter. Almost all celebrities, political leaders, sports players etc are now leaving inside the twitter. Followers gets what the exact thing happening with the tweet person. Haven an outlook of Twitter? Twitter began in a “daylong brainstorming session” that was held by board members of the podcasting company Odeo in an attempt to break out of a creative slump.At that meeting Jack Dorsey introduced the idea of an individual using an SMS service to communicate with a small group, a concept partly inspired by the SMS group messaging service TXTMob. That was the starting of Twitter. In 2006, the microbloging comes into attack 🙂 I don’t know whether it is an end of blogspot or not. But most of my friends and me just boarding from blogspot and orkut. Bloggers are now out of fashion 🙁
For us, Or’cut’ and now its facebook. This helps to share our posts with the world more easily than Orkut I think. In 2009 the Facebook probably tookover the position of ‘No 1 in Social Networking sites’ from Orkut. In Facebook, Users can join and create up to 200 groups according to their interests or areas of expertise. That make the Facebook outstanding. Facebook Apps are also a great way to explore the websites I think 🙂 When ever I visits a website, there will be a link for “Follow us on Twitter or Connect with Us on Facebook”. I wondered why this is!
I’m not going to say anything more about these two websites. You know what is going on…! and even better than me. One more, since I’m a Graphics designer, I usually participates in 99designs’s contests. Look there, you can see a new category for Twitter BG’s this year. So a great way for the designers too to earn something for there dinner :). A no of twitter based websites were also born in this year. These sites will keep us with the latest posts in your websites.
So this was the year of Twitter and Facebook. Is there any chance for a new Social Networking website or a new technology for the blogging in the upcoming year? Let’s wait and see. Just 3 more years go to until the end the world? ( just joking..!! ) 🙂
So friends, don’t hesitate to post your comment here. I’m a beginner. Share your contributions to this post and share this post with your friends. Let them know what happened in 2009 and let us know what will happen in 2010 🙂
