If Facebook Were Invented In the 90s [Video]

What would Facebook look like if it had been a 1990s phenomenon? This video takes us through a Facebook training video with all the Netscape Navigator goodness you can handle.

Jason Fitzpatrick is warranty-voiding DIYer and all around geek. When he's not documenting mods and hacks he's doing his best to make sure a generation of college students graduate knowing they should put their pants on one leg at a time and go on to greatness, just like Bruce Dickinson. You can follow him on if you'd like.

    Facebook was invented in the 90s, it was just called Six Degrees.

    I guess no one remembers BBS’s or actual real life interfacing and a local computer club?

    Thanks to cell phones and social media web sites, I think we’re really starting to loose it as a society.

    Anonymous, I surely do remember BBS’s and computer clubs! The SysOp of the BBS had complete control over his own BBS and had stacks and stacks of drives/players all daisy-chained together. Host/guest, ya, I remember! And the mess you could create if you did not sign off properly! LOL! Been there, did that!!

    Damn, from what I remember my internet was way slower than that back in the 90s. Did you see how fast those profile pictures loaded? Crazy!
