Where were you when 'social networking' happened?

"Social networking." The first time I heard someone use that term was in 2007. A friend of mine had left to go work somewhere new, and she said she was going to a conference to learn about "social networking." I literally thought she meant she was going to the conference to learn how to make friends and acquaintances at social work functions. It wasn't until a few months later when someone told me about MySpace that I realized what she meant.

The way people communicate has changed so much in the past five years. And TCC has been changing its communication strategies to reflect that. A Facebook fan page, a YouTube channel, this blog. It's definitely the social networking age.

Thank goodness I now know what it means, since it has to do with my job and all. :)

Do you remember where you were when social networking happened?


  1. I was sort of busy going to school and working during the time that this all first started, so I got on board sort of late. However, I have been thoroughly enjoying social networking since winter of 2007. I'm glad to see that TCC is taking full advantage of this relatively new trend.
