The year 2011 was a remarkable timeframe for social networks as we saw a surge of service providers bundling social networks. In order to keep the number of users intact, social networks came up with many new launches to convince their users to stay engaged and active – Right from Twitter’s new launch of desktop app for Mac (Jan 2011) to Google+, announcing admins and insights for brand pages (Dec 2011). Below is the Timeline which describes all the remarkable changes that social networking websites underwent.

Most of the changes in Twitter were in the favor of customers. Initially it launched a new desktop app for Mac in January followed by the introduction of new search and discovery tools in April. Meanwhile Facebook had come up with the new profile look in the month of Jan and in March Facebook launched new ‘questions’ feature for profile and pages.

In the month of May Twitter launched “Follow button” for websites. Another threat to all the social networks was found with the launch of Google+ in June. Later in July Facebook enabled video calling and group chat features while Twitter made promoted tweets more visible.
