Facebook is an online social networking service headquartered in Menlo Park, California. Its website was launched on February 4, 2004, by Mark Zuckerberg with his Harvard College roommates and fellow students Eduardo Saverin, Andrew McCollum, Dustin Moskovitz and Chris Hughes.[8][9] The founders had initially limited the website’s membership to Harvard students, but later expanded it to colleges in the Boston area, the Ivy League, and Stanford University. It gradually added support for students at various other universities and later to high-school students.  Its name comes from a colloquialism for the directory given to it by American universities’ students.[11]

After registering to use the site, users can create a user profile, add other users as “friends”, exchange messages, post status updates and photos, share videos and receive notifications when others update their profiles. Additionally, users may join common-interest user groups, organized by workplace, school or college, or other characteristics, and categorize their friends into lists such as “People From Work” or “Close Friends”.

The duty of a true chronicler is to sort chronicles. Now that the internet has become more and more widespread on earth, let’s take a look at it. Let’s look at the milestones in chronological order. Let’s get started:

FanFiction.Net (often abbreviated as FF.net or FFN) is an automated fan fiction archive site. It was founded in 1998[2] by Los Angeles computer programmer Xing Li, who also runs the site. The site is split into nine main categories: Anime/Manga, Books, Cartoons, Miscellaneous, Games, Comics, Movies, Plays/Musicals, and TV Shows. The site also includes the Crossover category, added on March 27, 2009. Users who complete the free registration process can submit their fan fiction, maintain a user profile, review other stories, apply for a beta reader position, contact each other via private messages, and maintain a list of favorite stories and authors. There are centralized communities and forums.

In the chaotic world of OCs and 72-chapter sagas, only one man can save the day. And that man is you (unless you are a lady then it is a lady.) However, that (wo)man is going to need some help to tame the wild Fanfiction frontier. This is a video that will change his/her life forever… [Reader Insert, Rated T]

This will be a day long remembered. The day when “YouTube” really came into existence, long before it’s official debut. And the world has changed. I feel it in the streams of the internet. My name is Bippi Bracegirdle, and I will lead you into the worlds of fantasy. But how did this vehicle, this YouTube thing all started?

YouTube began when three former PayPal employees started to create a video-sharing website on which users could upload, share, and view videos.[1] The Internet domain name “youtube.com” was activated on February 14, 2005. The website was developed over the subsequent months. The creators offered the public a preview of the site in May 2005, six months before YouTube made its official debut. Like many technology startups, YouTube was started as an angel-funded enterprise from a makeshift office in a garage. In November 2005, venture firm Sequoia Capital invested an initial $3.5 million;[5] additionally, Roelof Botha, partner of the firm and former CEO of PayPal, joined the YouTube board of directors. In April 2006, Sequoia and Artis Capital Management put an additional $8 million into the company, which had experienced hugely popular growth within its first few months.[6]

The first YouTube video was titled Me at the zoo, and shows co-founder Jawed Karim (YouTube Name “jawed”) at the San Diego Zoo.[7] The video was uploaded on April 23, 2005. You can see it above.

A new dimension was added to storytelling, although it was not yet completely to be seen. But the story went on…
