I thought it’s timely, and relevant as I am attempting the video part of the assignment to take a look at the pre-Squared me. I have been working in Digital for a while now so I thought I’d check out just how long I have been on some of the main social networks.
Twitter – after a bit of searching I used TwopCharts.com which announced (drumroll please) I joined on 14 April 2008 and have been tweeting for over 5 and a half years.
Next, what about Facebook. Thanks to Facebook Timeline I was able to narrow this down semi-easily, although I couldn’t find my ‘Haylee joined Facebook’ so I am taking it from the first post on my wall which was 27 June 2007. So I figure sometime before that I joined, as it was a friend who posted a picture of me on my wall (bless him, I was young). According to The History of Facebook on Wikipedia, Facebook was opened to the public on 26th September 2006
LinkedIn, with this I found that LinkedIn easily display your joined date. Go to ‘Privacy & Settings’ (click on your photo on the top far right hand side and scroll down). The information is clearly at the top of the page – October 10, 2007.
I used Stormpixel to make an infographic of my foursquare stats, and it looks like I was within the first 1million people to use foursquare, and it also looks like I drink a lot of coffee, and they would be correct #coffeesnob
Another website I looked at IDEGO, I wanted to find out if I was in fact an early adopter. It lets you login to certain social websites and gives you your stats. So according to Idego, I am user 912,598 for Foursquare and was in the first 1.99% of users. Instagram, I am user 21,540,823 and was in the first 7.52% of users. Twitter I am user 14,383,490 and am in the first 1.14% of users. Woah!
So how long have you been socialising?
I also have my pre-Squared blog, which I took a hiatus from after having my second munchkin, but you are more than welcome to check my other social-eyes.me blog. I will get back to all of that soon though as things begin to ramp up again.
