The giants who created social media networks

Today, social media has become a part of our lives. Sometimes we don't understand but it is not wrong to say that these social media networks determine the direction of our life as well as the whole world. For example, social media played a major role in the Arab Spring in the Middle East and North Africa. Recently, these social media sites had the audacity to use their power to completely block the social media accounts of the President of the United States, who is considered to be the most powerful person in the world. So today we wanted to introduce you to some of the people who started social media networks. But we did not include Mark Zuckerberg, the owner of Facebook. Because a lot of people know about him. 

1. Jack Dorsey ( Jack Dorsey)

Jack Dorsey, who has studied costume design and body massage, launched Twitter in 2006 along with several others. He left his post in 2008 to study yoga and took up the post again in 2018. Dorsey, who spends his fortune generously on charities, distributed one-third of his holdings to Twitter employees in 2016, and Kovid donated $ 1 billion of his assets to the charity. 

2. Chad Hurley, Steve Chen, Jawed Karim ( Chad Hurley, Steve Chen, Jawed Karim)

The three friends met while working at Paypal and later the three of them came together to create the Youtube social media network. During this time Javed put his education first, so he agreed to work only as an instructor. As a result, many people did not know about Javed's contribution until Google bought YouTube in 2006. Chad served as CEO of YouTube until 2010, after which he turned his attention to starting several other companies. Chad had been involved in many of those activities.

3. Kevin Systrom and Mike Krieger

The duo initially planned to create a social network called Burban , but decided to create the Instagram social network, assuming it would not be so popular among users due to its complexity Launched in 2010, the social media network was sold to Facebook in 2012 Craigger later stated that he was so attached to Instagram in the early days that he was able to revive the site even when he was drunk at one point. 

4. Naveen Selvadurai and Dennis Crowley

Dennis started a project called Dodgeball for his university project and later sold it to Google Through the experience gained from that project, I teamed up with Naveen to launch the Foursquare social media network. They then focused on introducing more phone apps that coincided with it.

5. Caterina Fake and Stewart Butterfield

What started out as a chat room, the Flicker social media network has grown exponentially and the chat room has moved away. Katrina Fake and Stuart Butterfield, a couple, took the lead in launching this social media network. Yahoo bought Flickr in 2005 and in 2008 the couple decided to leave. 

6. Ben silbarmān ( by Ben Silbermann)

According to Ben, it was his ex-boyfriend who inspired him to start the Pinterest social media network. Every little kid likes to add different things. He launches Pinterest as a solution to the fact that these little adults in the internet have no place to display what they have collected. After working for a short time at Google, he got tired of creating the iPhone app, and then he decided to launch the Pinterest site.

7. Reid Hoffman

According to Reid, he has wanted to make a huge difference in the world since he was in school. Even after higher education, his purpose was not lost. He held a number of top positions in PayPal for a while and launched LinkedIn in 2002 He also invested heavily in business opportunities.
