Created by Unified Social, the 'Brief History of Social Advertising' infographic starts at 2002 and takes a quick glance at the changes in modes and methods of social media marketing until 2013.
Stated in the introduction to this timeline, "as Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, StumbleUpon and others have emerged as social network leaders, they have created powerful new ways for for advertising to reach the right consumers with the right message at the right time."
Considering this advertising method did not exist a decade ago, the fast-paced progress social advertising has made to market brands to the public on a global scale is an impressive feat that is incomparable to other more traditional modes of advertisement.
