Happy 20th online anniversary, BBC!
On 13 April, the BBC Networking Club launched, offering early social networking, bulletin board features and information about the BBC.
Ralph Rivera, director for BBC Future Media, said: “The BBC was there at the beginning, helping to usher in a whole host of online technologies that are now ingrained in our everyday lives. The web certainly looked different back then but it has retained the same potential to change our lives for the better, and we continue to be at the forefront of this exciting industry. We’re continually looking at how we can use the technology of tomorrow to bring even better services to our audiences today, and help improve access to information and entertainment.”
