Early online collaboration took place on the BBS forums (Bulletin Board System) in the 80's, followed by America Online and Compuserve which addressed the mass market. Social networks such as Friendster, MySpace etc of the early 2000's were followed by today's Twitter and Facebook [http://www.digitaltrends.com/features/the-history-of-social-networking/]. In the workplace, startups are emerging every day to facilitate online collaboration [http://venturebeat.com/2009/12/04/a-brief-history-of-social-network-enterprise-collaboration-tools/].
