Ten years ago, New media techologies just like the Internet were fastly different to how they are now. The technlology is so much more advanced in the present days that it is changing the way we live. If I were to make a media diary 10 years ago, I think one major differences would be the lack of social networking and website browsing. As social networking such as Myspace created by Tom Anderson wasnt introducued untill 2003 and Facebook created Mark Zuckerburg also wasnt introduced untill 2004. One of the the most popular internet activity was chatrooms which were often used my internet users, as this was one of the first ways you could interact with other computer users, as msn messenger had only just been introduced shortly in 1999.
Also with Bill Gates creating Microsoft in 1998, This time ten years ago would have began the re-creation of technology. Therefore with people only just being introduced to the Internet and computer software ten years ago, It would have begun the very experimental journey with many developments to come in the following years.
