The WWW didn’t really exist when I started using the internet.
We had bulletin boards, arcane chat room protocols, some weird techy stuff that allowed me to send e-mails to the USA from London if I routed them through Hong Kong (don’t ask, I can’t remember how I did it) and most communications revolved around what would today be called ecosystems, for example CompuServe and America On Line.
All the ingredients were present for social media but there was no integration.
