In this digital age, we have become accustomed to a fast-paced society. We always are thinking about how to better build our websites, how to make everything mobile-ready, and how to better target our audiences. But sometimes, it is nice to take a moment and reflect on the way things were; and keep tabs on the trends to prepare for in the future.
The Delhi-based food app, Zomato, has done just that with their recent series of illustrations depicting ‘For the times they are a-changin.’ While some pictures display how terminology has changed with a bird tweet now referring to a Twitter tweet, others show how behavior has also changed when you can’t sit down for dinner without uploading your dinner’s photo to Instagram.
We thought it would be fun to also check out how much Webs has changed in the last ten years using the handy Internet Archive: Wayback Machine. This tool is fun to play around with to see how your own websites have changed throughout the years and make tactful assessments for changes. Can you update your content for better SEO? Can you add more images to be more visually appealing? Do you need to make adjustments for better branding? These are questions you could easily answer by seeing how you have changed over the years!
If you are amused by what your website looks like in the Wayback Machine, share it with us in the comments!
