1996 vs. 2011: The Internet Yesterday & Today [infographic]

It's ridiculous to think about how far we've come along, not only with the speed, but how the design of pages look, how the Internet has economically helped us survive.

We’ve gone from World Wide Web to the Internet in just 15 years. If you think about what the Internet looked like 5 years ago, 10 years ago and even 15 years ago, you know the evolution of social media happened at lightning speed.

It’s ridiculous to think about how far we’ve come along, not only with the speed, but how the design of pages look then and now. Something else to consider is how the Internet has economically helped us survive.

OnlineUniversity created the infographic to illustrate yesterday’s struggle with the World Wide Web to today’s phenomenal advancements to the Internet. It is quite a history lesson, and I had fun taking a look at Mapquest then and now. How many times did I follow Mapquest’s directions and get lost? That doesn’t happen today thanks to satellites.
