The spread of affordable internet has been one of the primary factors that contributed to the accelerated spread of social media networks like Facebook.
The foundation of what we know today as social media began in the 1990s when many people enjoyed bulletin boards. Bulletin boards are an early form of forums, but the main difference is represented by the fact that one user-hosted the entire platform on their computer, which was used by a service.
This was quite convenient for those who visited the bulletin board. Still, if the host computer encountered any technical problems or software issues, the bulletin board vanished into thin air along with all the content that was present.
As broadband internet started to spread after the early 2000s, a large number of new social platforms began to appear. One of them was Facebook, which was developed to offer an online community for students who attended Harvard University.
