The Internet has revolutionized not just the manner of sharing information, but also the manner in which people interact. Because of technology, communication can now be done instantly, regardless of time zone and distance. This click-away interaction was further empowered with the advent of social networking.

Information sharing is also not limited to texts anymore since photos, audio files, and even videos can be easily published or sent over the Internet.
The social networking sites later on evolved into different faces and forms. Friendster was born in 2002, replacing Geocities and Six Degrees, and its popularity paved the way for other similar sites like MySpace, YouTube, Twitter, and Facebook, among others. Even their functions also developed from being mere interaction sites to becoming efficient trading venues.
