Social media such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and LINE are becoming essential to the people of today. A movie that shows how the number of social media users has changed over the past 16 years has been released by The Next Web , a technology media.

The most popular social media networks each year, gloriously animated

First of all, in 2002, based on Malaysia, Friendstar , a social media site popular in Southeast Asia and the Middle East, topped the list. The number of users is 3 million.

In 2003,

LinkedIn , a business-specific SNS, began slowly increasing the number of users. In fact, LinkedIn is starting its service in May 2003, which is earlier than Facebook and Twitter.

However, in 2004, Facebook,

Flickr , a photo sharing site, MySpace , a SNS focused on music and entertainment, Orkut, a SNS operated by Google, began to emerge ...

By the end of 2004, Friendstar, Orkut and Flickr have won many users and formed the top of social media. MySpace is also over 1 million, but the number of Facebook users is still over 300,000.

The San Francisco-born SNS hi5 began to grow in 2005, and YouTube appeared at the bottom of the screen. In the upper layer there is a fierce interchange ...

Eventually it became MySpace1 strong state. MySpace is going to exceed 20 million, among other social media less than 10 million users. On the other hand, although the number of users themselves is growing, Friendstar and Flickr are not able to beat the growth rate of other social media, and the ranking is set back.

In 2006, the number of MySpace users topped 50 million. YouTube has grown to nearly 20 million users, but at this point Facebook users are not as large as other social media. The icon that imitates the face of the person seen below is the social bookmark site

Reddit on the bulletin board.

By 2007, YouTube and Facebook will rapidly increase the number of users and improve their ranking.

YouTube quickly surpassed MySpace, and the number of users surpassed 140 million. At that time YouTube seems to have increased nearly 100 million users in just a year. It was around this time that I could see the Twitter icon at the bottom of the graph.

In 2008, the number of YouTube users was close to 300 million, and the number of Facebook users exceeded 80 million. Overall, the number of social media users has grown tremendously, with even the fewest Twitters listed having more than one million users.

In 2009, the number of YouTube users exceeded 400 million, and the number of Facebook users exceeded 200 million. Twitter is steadily improving its position and is overtaking Reddit and LinkedIn.

The number of YouTube and Facebook users will be almost the same in 2010, which clearly shows the rapid increase in Facebook users. In addition, the Google was providing SNS

Google Buzz can be said that China and the version of Twitter Sina Weibo appeared sites like (Weibo).

The number of Facebook users eventually surpassed 700 million. The number of Twitter users has surpassed the 80 million mark, and

WeChat , the messenger app, also has a strong presence.

The number of Facebook users exceeded 900 million in 2012, and YouTube exceeded 800 million users. The miniblog service

Tumblr and Google+ have also increased the number of users and made it harder for the upper layer. In addition, Google Buzz has stopped its service as it has been integrated into Google+ in October 2011, so the number of users has stopped increasing and decreasing.

In 2013, the number of Facebook and YouTube users exceeded 1 billion, and Tumblr, Twitter, and Google+ also exceeded 200 million. In addition,

Instagram , a photo sharing SNS, has been rapidly expanding the number of users.

In 2014, WeChat rapidly increased the number of users and exceeded 400 million.

It rushed into 2015 without losing momentum, becoming the third largest social media in the world after Facebook and YouTube, with more than 600 million users. On the other hand, Instagram has surpassed Twitter and is fifth overall.

In 2016, the number of Facebook users exceeded 1.7 billion and WeChat exceeded 800 million.

Snapchat, a photo sharing app for smartphones, is also gaining momentum.

Soon, however, Snapchat tumbled from the top 10, and instead the short movie app

TikTok appeared. The number of Facebook users has reached 2 billion.

And at the end of the movie, an estimate of the number of users as of 2018 was displayed. The number of Facebook users is over 2.2 billion, followed by YouTube, Instagram, WeChat, Tumblr, TikTok, Weibo, Google + Reddit, Twitter. It was an at-a-glance movie at a glance about the social media situation before the rise of Facebook, and social media that had been overwhelmed by other services while boasting a large number of users in the past.
