That 90’s Look on Facebook

If Mark Zuckerberg were born 10 years earlier, would Facebook have been invented in the ’90s?
Maybe not, given the Web was still in version 1.0.

But thanks to technology and humorists, we can now picture a past where users crank up their dial-up connections to browse “The Facebook”…in Netscape…mailing in grainy pictures to slowly upload at “The Facebook Company.”

This intentionally hokey video underlines the light-speed evolution of the Internet age and how comfortable we’ve become living a far-more digital life.

Better yet?  Enjoy what Google might have looked like If it were invented in the ’80s

Of course, there’s also humor If Angry Birds were an ’80s home computer game.

So few pixels…such a simple time.
