Influential Social Media Greats

                                                                              Social Media Greats

         My list are based on people and objects that I feel made a change and differences in the world. I try to stay accurate. These list are only official to me and some times the list will be made bigger or smaller.All their contributions are considered and thanked equally.

The world at your finger tips.
What is your stop?

  • Social Media(these people have changed the way news is carried across the world and how people think and act).
  1. YouTube creators- Jawed Karim, Steve Chen and Chad Hurley- they changed the way we watch videos. People use this to audition or for a games walk-through. Some people even upload informative videos on mathematics and medicine. Many teachers use this as learning devices.
  2. Facebook creator- Mark Zuckerburg- he created a new world. A new way news travels and a way to connect generations, races and continents. A large amount of the world's population is on Facebook. There are few people even do not know what it is. 
  3. Twitter founder- Biz Stone, Evan Williams, Noah Glass, and Jack Dorsey-these people have given the world another site that connects many people. Celebrities use it, ordinary people use it.While Twitter is all inclusive the messages,are limited to 140 characters. But that does not stop fans the largest account has 36 million followers.
  4. Google founder-Larry Page and Sergey Brin- these creators have created a go to search engine. While many people say Google is going to be phased out, this process will take many years seeing the vastness of such a engine. Google has bought out countless companies and entered into numerous partnerships. Originally created in 1998 it is still on-top.
  5. Wikipedia founder-Jimmy Wales and Angela Starling- they created a public online encyclopedia, that is not only offers the regular services of a encyclopedia. But also more, they talk about current news and can be edited by anyone. This is not necessarily a good thing though, many teachers do not use it or allow the use of it, because it is not considered reliable. But if you have something to ask real quick it comes in handy having always up to date news and links. And if you cannot find something there, you can always edit it your self. While this is not exactly social media it deserved notable mention.
