With an influx of anniversaries recently - the fortieth year of the cell phone, the twentieth year of the internet and the tenth anniversary of tech tools that have become an integral part of our life, like iTunes and Skype - we’ve taken a look back at the past ten years of technology.

Flashback to 2003
2003 doesn't feel like that long ago does it? Cast your mind back to what you were doing. Maybe you were gasping over the t.A.T.u. music video on MTV, wondering who these Black Eyed Peas were, queuing at the movies to see the last Lord of the Rings film or asking people if they'd seen the new show "Two and a Half Men". Of course, if you hadn't seen it, you'd just have to wait Blockbuster got the DVD in. Unless someone had taped it…

Right at the time when SEO was experiencing a tremendous growth, Google started rolling its algorithm updates. The first update Google Panda caused quite a few changes which made the internet marketers unhappy. And the worse came when the Google Penguin update was made.

MySpace is Making a Comeback

I know it might sound like the very early 2000s (I promise it’s not) but MySpace is trying to make a comeback in the social media market. While this is not the first reboot, it does look to be a more promising attempt than past efforts to rebrand the once relevant social media platform. The new site, which can be previewed already, does have a sleeker look, and is being rebranded as more of a hangout for creative types. The question is will it work?
MySpace had a strong following around a decade or so ago, but in the recent years has suffered a huge loss in membership activity. Due to the rising success of Facebook (which has ironically become a lot like MySpace, flaws and all) MySpace suffered at the hand of other social media platforms. It couldn't directly compete with Facebook’s popularity, yet offered nothing unique that users could gather around like Twitter, Instagram, or any other newer social platform. With that said, is a facelift the only thing this plagued brand needs?

Top 5 reasons why people unfollow you

Technological development has changed a lot of things in our lives. If several years ago we had to sit and write long and boring course or graduation papers, if we were to write everything with pen, now we can do that with “one eye monster” called computer. At first sight it seems that we have used computers for long years, but come and see that it has a history of a half century. At the beginning of the XX century the idea appeared then developed and became what we can’t live without. 
However the invention of computer was nothing compared with that of the Internet. It has even shorter history but has managed to become a part of our lives; we eat, speak, sing, and sleep before the computer and due to the Internet. So the revolution has played enormous role in the lifestyle of humanity. Now we don’t have to go fishing, shopping, walking, as everything is possible to do on the Internet. 
A number of games offer you everything: fishing, farming, agriculture, sort, culture etc. The flood o…

LinkedIn.com Fails in the Social Media

In addition, recruiters see it as a good platform to look for suitable candidates for different job profiles. Despite all the positives, there is something that does not seem to be working for LinkedIn. The platform appears to have stagnated and is in crying need for a change. Else, failure is imminent. Let's delve deep into this to get the real picture.

Perceived reasons for failure
1. Lack of emphasis on further innovation Dynamism drives social media. A complete overhaul of features is more a norm than an exception. The same is not the case with LinkedIn.
