10 years of the Vietnamese people’s ‘gossip’: Ola, Yahoo are dead, the forum has also drifted into the past, but youth memories are forever!

“Looking back at the joys and sorrows of May, how many times will I have 10 years in this life?” ***

2010, sounds like new but in fact, it was in the past tense, and specifically 10 years from the present! Ten years isn’t too long, but it’s not too short either, and how many times in a human’s life are 10 years?

In 2010, Yahoo is still popular and people are still busy “buzzing” their friends when online, or texting SMS with the legendary Nokia 1280 black and white phone.

2020, Facebook, Instagram, Zalo… to the throne, along with names like Google Classroom, Microsoft Teams, Zoom Meeting, Skype… for online learning and working during Covid.

10 years have gone by as fast as the wind, looking back and forth many things that were once familiar, a trend for a while is now just nostalgia. It is not clear since when because there is no specific milestone, only knowing that at a certain point in time, everyone is surprised to realize that there are friends who have not texted for a long time, there are websites that are no longer open, or Technology “monuments” that used to be “addicted” are now “dead”…

2010 – 2020, that’s enough time for the old lady’s habit of using the means of communication to trade melons and “makeover”, becoming “technologyized and modernized” much better!

At that time, social networking was still a rather vague “something”.

Facebook

After its debut in 2005, it appeared in Vietnam at the end of 2006. However, this big man at that time was only a promising new bud, but it still did not have wide coverage because it was not attractive enough to young people.

Therefore, people remain loyal to their own community and communicate through applications and websites such as Zingme, Ola, and famous forums (VOZ, Webtretho, Truongton.net, Tinhte.vn, Vforum, Otofun.net). , Yeuamnhac.com, Dienanh.net…).

Zingme

Although it was just born in September 2009, with a solid foundation, it quickly became popular. By November 2010, Zing Me had surpassed domestic and foreign competitors to become the Vietnamese social network with the most users with about 3.4 million comments, 1 million shared images, nearly 15,000 blogs per year. day.

Zingme allows users to customize the interface of their personal pages similar to blogs.

Forum

The years 2010 – 2012 are still in the glorious period. Starting to bloom in Vietnam from 2005 to 2006, there were forums that quickly attracted millions of participants such as 5giay, Ttvnol, Tinhte, Webtretho, Yeuamnhac… By 2007-2008, a number of brands began to search. Come to the Forum as a fertile land to “seed” your message. There are quite a few campaigns that have been implemented on the Forum and achieved impressive results such as those of Nescafe and Honda…

Yeuamnhac used to be the most famous Forum for music lovers.

Referring to the famous communication channels of the 8x and early 9x generations would be remiss, so they should not be mentioned

Ola

. This is considered the first Vietnamese social network that was born in 2007. Ola flourished around 2010 – 2011 with many interesting features such as reading online newspapers, looking up lists of karaoke songs, looking up dictionaries, reading stories, etc. play games and share photos, videos, moods… Although there is no specific number to prove, but Ola is probably the messaging application widely covered in Vietnam after Yahoo only!

Talking about the gold coverage in the chat village, selling melons and selling cucumbers, Ola is probably just behind Yahoo.

As for the legend

Yahoo!

, has passed the golden age (about 2002 – 2007) when people opened their computers to open Yahoo first. However, in the period 2010 – 2011, it is still a “monument” that is difficult to topple. Yahoo is now hovering, neither the beginning nor the climax, many young people still consider this as the main communication channel with friends.

Yahoo – a youth never forgotten with the 8x, 9x generation.

Thai Ho Nguyen, an early 9x who has now had almost 3 dozen reminiscences thinking about the glorious past with Yahoo and the Yahoo 360 Blog said: “Blog has some kind of snow effect, then the soundtrack of Winter Is Not Cold, Lan Can Love Story was hot that day. Particularly the music with wallpaper for the blog has burned countless amounts of money of the first 8x and 9x youth – including myself.

Remembering that time reminds me of the innocent days of schoolchildren riding bicycles under the blazing sun to go to school. In class, compete to see who has the better Yahoo nick. A name that is not good quality is about creating a new nick!

In the guestbook, in addition to recording their name, interests and confiding lines, people also add a Yahoo nick and a link to the Yahoo 360 Blog and say: “Remember to read my blog when you graduate from school to know how I live or die. okay types”…

There was a saying on the internet that day “Time flies like a dog running in the field”. Come to think of it, it’s funny, but it’s also true. Looking back and forth Yahoo and the Yahoo 360 Blog is now closed, the friends who used the blog back then are all grown up now!”

The year 2012 is a year with many marks in the history of

Facebook

. In Vietnam, the number of users of this social network has also increased rapidly. Besides, with the explosion of smartphones, accessing Facebook has also become much simpler and more convenient. At this stage, any young person who owns a Samsung Galaxy Y smartphone with a touch screen is a genuine “player”. Of course, with this phone, using Facebook is extremely simple and convenient. Besides, many people still log into Facebook via Opera Mini browser on their phones.

Zalo

Released on 8/8/2012, it took 4 months after the official release to receive the attention of many people. During the following 2 years, this messaging – calling application has attracted a large number of users thanks to its good and stable operation on Vietnam’s network infrastructure.

Zalo is an OTT application – messaging, calling quite popular up to now.

Zingme

this time is still used by many people, but most of them are gamers. The founder himself also made many changes to optimize the interface and features to better serve game players. As for other features such as photo sharing, messaging, Zingme is somewhat inferior to Facebook and Instagram.

Friends Supermarket, Cloud Garden, Happy Farm, Dragon Island, Hang Rong… are hot hit games on Zingme that the 9x generation is probably hard to forget.

“For the middle 9x generation like me, Zingme is a sky of nostalgia. It’s a place to meet and get to know a lot of friends from all over the world. There are people who talk very funny, very suitable, but then also No more contact. Now when I think of Zingme, I still remember the game Garden in the Clouds, there is a person who always watered, caught worms for the plants and gave me pots. – Tran Hien (Ha Dong) said.

Still

Forum

until 2014 still in the golden age. This is like a place to make friends, learn useful knowledge and even… hang out. Many people also come from this land to meet a loved one, and then become a husband and wife.

Ha Anh (Thai Nguyen), a person who has also experienced many forums about film and music, shared: “The youth of 8x and early 9x probably have all experienced dating and chatting for hours thanks to any forum. We are closer even though our geographical distance is not close to one another. The world is virtual, but the emotions and memories are real, so that we can smile when we think about it, even though those friends are no longer around.

This time,

Yahoo and Ola

is on the decline. Although Ola has released a new version, it is difficult to compete with new social networks. And Yahoo is no better, constantly having user account data stolen causing great damage.

Yahoo!

used to be the “king” in the youth communication village. But the “buzz” with the chat window will never appear again from July 17, 2018. During nearly 20 years of working with the 8x and early 9x generations, Yahoo contains many memories, but according to the development of technology, gradually this application has also been replaced by (several) dozens of other convenient applications. , simple, more interesting.

Besides Yahoo,

Forum

It is also a land where many members are concentrated in a certain field. But many Forums from bustling also become deserted islands without visitors, even some have the same fate, closed forever like Yahoo in silence, quietly.

Vn-zoom has been “abandoned” since about 2015, although it was also a golden forum for technology people before. Yeuamnhac, Yeudienanh also shared the same fate “for a while”, but in the period 2015-2018, they were dull, even closed silently without trumpet or drum.

NN – 8X last generation in Bac Giang, currently working in Saigon recounts his memories: “The song you’re listening to is played from quap sai: quoc qua quap dot son hai dot in pho. Wish you all good music. In the old days, if you went to the net to sit at 3k/h, you would visit this page anyway to listen to music.

Done also know 1 friend through the thread of making friends from 4 directions in the Forum, and then “escape” each other’s Yahoo nicks. At that time, they were shy and didn’t say it, but everyone was just waiting for the other to dance online and Buzz was crazy, telling silly stories but it was so much fun. But now people have hugged two little children, thinking about it only feels nostalgic, a little regretful and bitter. Even though I’m braver, I can erase the geographical distance and now people hug their children.”

Facebook, Instagram

This period is considered as the main communication channel for young people. According to statistics, the number of facebook users in Vietnam in 2018 skyrocketed to 7th place with 58 million users, an increase of 5% in the first quarter of the year and 16% compared to 2017. No longer the “exclusive” of Vietnam. young people, Facebook is getting more and more elderly people to join.

Zalo

announced the milestone of 80 million users in August 2018. Based on the survey results of Vinaresearch, Zalo has the second highest awareness level (94.3%) equal to Youtube and only after Facebook. On average, about 87 people have a Zalo account for every 100 people. Instagram – a photo-sharing social network, has about 5-8 million users and 60% are women.

In the period of 2019 – 2020, there are many Vietnamese social networks developed by Vietnamese people. Prominent among them must be mentioned

Lotus

– Content social network operated and developed by VCCorp Joint Stock Company. This social network has a lot of interesting things such as visual storytelling, in a format designed for professional content creators…

Sharing at the launch of Lotus social network on September 16, 2019, Mr. Nguyen The Tan, General Director of VCCorp Joint Stock Company said: “Lotus has a strategy of taking content as king, so we create professional content design formats for kings. And users are gods. Kings create content to serve God!”. Just a few months after its launch, the pure Vietnamese social network Lotus has 1 million regular users.

Lotus social network has stood shoulder to shoulder in the prevention of the Covid-19 epidemic from the very first days. The Corona Virus Shield Fanpage is a bright spot in propaganda, providing quick and accurate information about the Covid-19 situation in Vietnam and around the world.

In 2019, Vietnam had 45.3 million Facebook users and by 2020, this number will increase to more than 69 million users by the end of June 2020. Not only is the social network to help people connect and stay in touch, Facebook is also a place to spread news extremely quickly, but the accuracy is … unverified.

Zalo also retains its form, has a relatively large number of users. However, both social networks also have their downsides. With Facebook, the spread of fake news is no longer a strange thing, users need to be really alert to filter information, avoid abetting the spread of fake and misleading news. As for Zalo, many security features such as hiding messages, hiding comments are the ideal environment for … adultery.

In addition, because of the Covid-19 epidemic, many applications for online learning and meetings have also taken the throne such as Google Classroom, Microsoft Teams, Zoom Meeting, Skype…

10 years have passed, the Gossip Association of 2020 is very different from 2010. But whether past or present, the virtual world still gives people real emotions, real values…
