Why does China have anything to do with Social Media? Social Media has followed a similar life to the way Chinese dynasties have expanded and contrasted over the years. Different social platforms have fought for the ability to survive in the current generation. Some social platforms have learned from others mistakes and developed off of previous dynasties mistakes. Some of these platforms can live in cohabitation at the same time, but will continually try to strive for domination. Some platforms will survive for years, whereas others will only be revolutionary momentarily. This info graphic is used by Social Times to describe the history of Social Media from 1969-2012.
