Facebook Timeline and Dipity

This is the story of Facebook Timeline and Dipity.How a concept without a platform never gets the same response and when the same concept with a platform like Facebook takes off like a storm. Dipity came with concept of  Timeline website in April 2008 and till January 2010 they came with third version. The concept and the website even is very unknown and not covered in tech bloggers world  even when world’s most famous Social media website Facebook has come with a concept Timeline Profile. The difference between Facebook’s timeline profile and Dipity concept is only the platform on which  they are run.  As a company Dipity has stated that their mission is to “organize the webs content by date and time and  users can create, share, embed and collaborate on interactive, visually engaging timelines that integrate video, audio, images, text, links, social media, place and timestamps”. It is free for personal use as well available for premium services. Any one who is using internet can use this services. For their premium services the site refer that it will increase the traffic on the website of their customer. While going through many Timelines on the website it is clear that till now it has been particularly used to prepare a timeline of an event, scams, wars and very famous people like Steve jobs. On their home page they have promoted following timelines.

Oslo Massive bombing

The Boeing 787

Steve Jobs 1955-2011

It’s very strange that Dipity is hardly mentioned on any social media sites.at the time of writing this post they have 300 plus recommendations on Facebook and 100 plus on Google plus.Even worst website are promoting them-self heavily on Social Media but it seems like Dipity has never made any attempt to be on Social Media.(When this article was posted till that time Dipity was not very active on social media)

It is a deliberate attempt to be low profile. They have also developed an application for Facebook where it is clearly stated that this application was not developed by Facebook and they have active one thousand users. The link for Facebook application is http://www.facebook.com/apps/application.php?id=6638690876

you will not be able to use this application on Facebook rather it will redirect you on the website.

It is an interesting intersection of a concept where almost same concept will be some day used by more than a billion users and another one states we have one thousand active user. It always forces us to think that how much dynamic internet is.
