Social networks over time (GIF)

I saw this GIF on Twitter earlier and wanted to share.

Warning -- loud music on the video

It's really a trip down memory lane. I still remember the excitement of setting up my first MySpace account. TikTok is coming on strong. ๐Ÿ“ˆ

Google is hilariously good at rocketing to the top with something and then failing.

Please no :|

But then again, I shouldn't be one to talk. I don't have an Instagram account and my Facebook account is taking dust over time.

And yet, I live happily.

Fair warning: take off your headphones or lower the volume. That soundtrack gave me a heart attack ๐Ÿ˜ต

Quite surprised bolt.com wasn't on there. Used to be really big for a Facebook style platform pre MySpace. Used it quite a bit in the late 90's to 2000's

I'm seeing lots of variations of these gifs. is there is some generator for this or they're being made them by hand you think?
