Can you believe it's only been 10 years since Facebook was founded?

Perhaps many of you feel like it was just yesterday when "friend" was just a noun and the phrase "pics or it didn't happen" wasn't a common quip. But because social media networks like Facebook have been a central fixture of most companies' marketing strategies for so many years now, I don't know ... 10 years makes it seem so young.

Same goes for YouTube, which made video accessibility and shareability online as simple as can be. And Twitter, for that matter -- sponsored tweets have only been around since 2010! It's interesting to look back at these iconic moments in the last 10 years of social media history. Check out this infographic from MediaVision for a full timeline and what each network's usage stats look like right now.
