    The basic concept for Facebook. It was called ‘“The Gazette,” a system to “keep People aware of Others in the Town.”’

    Springfield Gazette – A paper by Abe Lincoln about him
    he tried to patent it as a method of keeping people updated about himself
    it is very similar to the facebook profiles

    I guess it’s supposed to be his shot at an early version of Facebook.

  8. Abraham Lincoln Filed a Patent For Facebook First/social network

    Lincoln was requesting a patent for “The Gazette,” a system to “keep People aware of Others in the Town.” He laid out a plan where every town would have its own Gazette, named after the town itself. He listed the Springfield Gazette as his Visual Appendix, an example of the system he was talking about. Lincoln was proposing that each town build a centrally located collection of documents where “every Man may have his own page, where he might discuss his Family, his Work, and his Various Endeavors.”
