I like chatting with friends through YM or google chat whenever we are able to. But recently I got to know about Facebook and MyBlogLog, mmm...quite interesting..I'm still trying to get the hang of it :-)
Facebook - first founded in February 2004. The Company Overview taken from its website : "Facebook gives people the power to share and makes the world more open and connected. Millions of people use Facebook everyday to keep up with friends, upload an unlimited number of photos, share links and videos, and learn more about the people they meet."
Whereas "The story behind MyBlogLog" :
Todd and Eric grew up together in Florida. Now Todd makes web sites and Eric makes video games. Every year or two Eric has a wacky web site idea and Todd (and his team at cloudspace.com) makes it happen, like the Metal Gear Solid Name Generator or Buzzsite, an early content aggregator.
During the winter holiday in 2004, Eric started a link blog (marcoullier.com), inspired by BoingBoing, Waxy and Kottke, among others. Even though he only had three visitors a day (his wife, his mother and Todd) he really wanted to know which links they clicked on; what they found interesting. Finding no simple solution, Eric instant messaged Todd and two months later MyBlogLog was launched.
