What Google, Twitter, Instagram, and Wikipedia would have looked like in the 80s [Video]


It’s difficult to imagine life without social media. More than that, in this modern age, it’s difficult for some people to remember what life was like before Google, Instagram, and Angry Birds.

Have you ever stopped to think what it would be like if all of your favorite online goodies had been created in the 80s instead of the 21st century? It certainly would paint a different picture. Also, if LinkedIn, Skype, and Wikipedia had been created in the early 1980s, what would they have even looked like?

The Youtube channel SquirrelMonkeyCom took this idea and ran with it, creating a series of videos depicting what they thought, for instance, Google search would have looked like in the 80’s.

It’s very surreal. Check out the videos below for a look into what might have been:
