As I read “The Culture of Connectivity: A Critical History of Social Media,” I realized how rare it is to read a history in which I have played/am playing an active role in its creation. Social Media and the Web has never stopped growing, and as we move on, they continue to grow faster. MySpace used be a major means of connecting online, and in an instant Facebook took over. Now, MySpace might as well be a dinosaur. Having lived in this life where I cannot quite remember not being connected to other people everyday, even if I am sick in bed alone, this history seems irrelevant. Once a website or program is gone and has been dominated by something else it becomes irrelevant to our everyday lives. Then, after reading this, I remembered Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, even WordPress, were created based off the backs of those before them. Social Media is evolutionary and it deserves a history because of its constant involvement in the lives of billions.
