LinkedIn in 2003 MySpace, Flickr and Facebook in 2004 YouTube in 2005 Twitter in 2006 Tumblr in 2007 Instagram in 2010 With many others in between. People of all ages were exploring this new virtual reality, creating profiles, peeking into other people’s lives, commenting, liking, and engaging in different ways. The social media story is a big story for a separate post, but it definitely contributed to the URL Shortener's evolution. One significant contribution to this social media revolution was Facebook’s ever-present ‘Like’ button, breaking free from the bounds of its site and appearing all over the Internet. Now you could ‘like’ or ‘tweet’ almost anything, even when you weren’t actually on Facebook or Twitter. The power of social networking was being realized, and more URLs were being shared than ever before. Social media as a whole is a massively expanding industry that has fueled the growth of the URL shortener industry alongside it. Remember, only 20 years ago, people weren’t sharing articles, creating blog posts, or Cork House Clearance Services creating live videos at nearly the frequency they are today. Over time, social media platforms have trained their users to create and share content regularly, as this is what fuels revenue for each social network. Therefore the advent of social media and the changing mindset of the user have played integral roles in shaping the URL shortening industry. How Rebrandly Works The Rise of Bitly Daring to Challenge ‘The King of the Short’ TinyURL was doing well and gaining traction, especially being used by Twitter. That was, until, Bitly came along. The story of how Bitly beat out TinyURL…CLICK TO TWEET Bitly saw this opportunity and took it, launching in February 2008. Along with the basic URL Shortening service, it also offered useful analytics on link clicks. This was something TinyURL was not doing, and this was how Bitly could really stand out, offering more value. And in 2009, Twitter ‘silently’ replaced TinyURL as its default URL shortening service with Bitly, it’s competing for service. This accelerated Bitly’s growth dramatically. No more than a day or two after Twitter switched over to Bitly as its default link shortener, Bitly becomes the most popular.
