2. History of Social Networks The first site recognizable as what we would call a social networking site launched in 1997. SixDegrees.com. o Profiles o List your friends o Move through Friends lists While those functions existed across places like dating sites, SixDegress was the first to combine them into one location 3. History of Social Networks Alas, SixDegrees was short-lived, closing down in 2000. It may have been ahead of its time Business started working on business networks with Ryze.com in 2001 (leading to things like LinkedIn later) In 2003 Social Networks really started to take off, Myspace launching to compete with Friendster and Xanga. 4. History of Social Networks After Myspace, blogging took off with sites like Livejournal. All social network sites were working to fine tune the interface and appeal of how they managed profiles, friends lists, and the ease with which individuals could move through their friends, as well as privacy concerns, in order to attract users 5.

Digital Native Prensky defines these as the group of individuals, specifically students in kindergarten through college, that have grown up surrounded and saturated with new technologies 14. Where do the rest of us lie?

A term that I respectfully dubbed as those individuals who shy away from the usage of new technologies such as social media. Not only do they shy away from it digital hermits also have a hard time dealing with the idea of utilizing social media within the classroom. 17. References Prensky, M. (2001).
