Facebook – In With the Old, Out with the New

Facebook was first released in March 2004 from college student Mark Zuckerberg’s small dorm room. When looking at the original website, most people probably wouldn’t even recognize it. It was composed of only a few words, titles and the colors blue and white. If most people saw the website today, they probably wouldn’t give it a second glance. It contained the typical Web 2.0 features with it’s plainness, almost looking just like a document with not very many interesting features like the ones that are common today.

The Daily Dot shows an article with photos on how much Facebook has progressed over the years as technology and resources have improved. Facebook from 2004 is a perfect example of Web 2.0 websites. Most websites from the 90’s and early 2000’s look similar to the webpage below. Now over time, each website has a certain uniqueness to it. Back then, people didn’t make the same kind of money making these webpages and not as many people could actually get jobs creating websites for a living, therefore not as much work was being put into them. Now, there are so many different kinds of softwares and programs that build webpages for you so you don’t have to do it from scratch. Facebook is constantly evolving with the years and so is every other website to keep people hooked.
