Social Media on News over 20 years in Taiwan
News about social media were parsed and accumulated since 1990. The curves show number of news monthly, which reveals how the Taiwanese online community were reported or noticed on News. It's insteresting to find that, plurk in Taiwan bursted very soon at post-blog period. However, it seems to be "terminated" by the raise of Facebook, especially the Facebook app "Happy farmer." (i.e., flesh: 肉搜, overuse: 低頭族)
