TheGlobe.com was a social network that went bust 22 years ago. It was a primitive chat box that linked users. The platform was founded in 1995 and is a distant ancestor of Facebook.

TheGlobe.com allowed users to create an online ID. Like Facebook, it was started by Ivy League students. The founders Stephan Paternot and Todd Krizelman were Cornell students.

Unlike Facebook, the user’s identity was not socially verifiable. Also, posting photos and videos were out of the question. This was the dial-up Internet era when bandwidth was limited.
