Not just social media but Facebook rekindles the past by Linette Rasheed
In the rapidly changing world of technology, sometimes a new technology enhances another one. At other times it makes previous technology obsolete. And then there are technologies that although new, using the new technology is a throwback from the past. Once such technology that is rekindled from the past, representing Rhymes from history, is the social networking site Facebook. When first conceived by founder Mark Zuckerberg in 2004, Facebook was a means for students of Harvard to connect with one another, an internal communication source. Today, having a Facebook account is expected. It is expected not only in the social world but oftentimes in the business world. The popularity of Facebook’s rise to prominence globally is due in part for its ability to connect family and friends, allowing them to keep touch. In the past families took pictures with cameras and shared photos of their children’s birthdays, recitals, graduations, etc., the “good ole fashion way.” Families took pictures, developed them at a local store, and sent them by mail. Although the process of printing and mailing photos sometimes took four days or more, the process fulfilled a basic human desire, a desire to stay connected to love one’s, no matter how far, through pictures of events in their lives.
