Do You Know The Name of the First Caribbean Social Network and Who Started it?

For the next couple of months as our 10th Anniversary unfolds, we will be sharing with you a bit of Caribbean Tech History, Caribbean Internet History. You can look for it every Tuesday and Thursday here on our blog and also on Instagram. Over the next few weeks we will be taking some Caribbean Tech History form blogs we wrote from 2007. We know you are going to enjoy it, share it and comment on it all. So happy to have you taking this journey with us. And so with that, here is the first one. Having read that, let it sink in. Yes, Rodney started CaribbeanMassive.com in 2004. That was the year Facebook only had 1 million active users. CaribbeanMassive was like a Caribbean Facebook and even had videos back too. It stayed in the market for years before hitting the deadpool. Additionally, as I talk about Caribbean Social Networks, do you know we had quite a few of them, I wrote an article  Top 20 Most Popular Caribbean Social Networks  back in 2011. Have a look. And as for Rodney, he is a successful Caribbean Tech Entrepreneur still based in St Kitts and Nevis with this company eCaribbean Ltd. We love these walks down the Caribbean Tech History, it gives us people and things to celebrate and a perspective of how far we have come and how much we have done. Follow the #CaribbeanTechHistory and #SCis10 hashtag over the next few weeks and months. And if you have any cool facts to share
