So when it comes to free online web site/blog services, this is my chronology. Some of the join dates are guesses. Some are posted on my profile when I login.
Geocities (fall 1996)
By 1999 I had designed the layout of my web site from the ground up, so I ditched sites like Geocities and Xoom for space on a friend's domain, which lasted nearly four years. That site stayed online for years until it became so frequently corrupted by malicious attacks that I just had to stop rebuilding it to keep friends and family from going to it.
I am pretty sure I narrowed my earliest Facebook presence to October 2004, but I didn't use it much until Spring 2005. I just know I joined in college, and I graduated in December 2004...
