The age of functional internet only meant one thing: online social platforms.

(Sounds a little creepy right?)

This was the original age of catfishing. The original age of social networking, competition, strange online relationships, and all other kinds of dynamics.

This was the age of begging your parents for a $50 membership to get all the fancy schmancy access to rare items for your look and your virtual house.

THIS was the emergence of avatar online games.

16. Secret Builders

Blue Skies Weren't Always Blue
