LinkedIn Evolution Timeline

May 5, 2017, marks the 14th birthday of one of the largest and best-known companies in Silicon Valley. It’s been more than a decade since LinkedIn was built as a business-oriented social network. Now, it has grown into a massively successful public company that generates billions of dollars in revenue and boasts more than 500 million members. Founded by Reid Hoffman and launched on May 5, 2003 – date dubbed by the founder and his team as Cinco de LinkedIn – the social network has played a big role in bringing together professionals worldwide and has even changed the way we find jobs, collaborators, or potential employees. To celebrate the network’s anniversary, let’s take a look back and see how it all started.

LinkedIn Evolution Timeline

The LinkedIn History Timeline marks some of the major events in the evolution of the popular network, from the time it was founded, the day it was launched officially, and its first month of profitability, to its acquisition by Microsoft and its 500M member milestone. The graphic also includes important product features released throughout the years, such as Groups - seen even today as one of the best ways to network on LinkedIn - or the popular "Who’s viewed your profile" feature.

The image was created in PowerPoint using the Office Timeline add-in and may be copied, modified and distributed free of charge. To make quick edits to the graphic, we recommend using Office Timeline Free Edition. The Plus version of the tool can be of great help to users requiring more advanced customization options and is ideal for building professional visuals and business presentations.

Samsung Galaxy S Series Timeline

Released on April 21 in the US and hitting the shelves worldwide starting April 28, the brand-new Samsung Galaxy S8 is already getting praises. With record-breaking pre-order sales and positive critical reception, the S8 appears to be a home run. However, there are a number of issues cropping up as well, such as red-tinted screens, problems with the Device Quality Agent, and iris scanner fails – thankfully, no exploding batteries yet.

Samsung Galaxy S Series Timeline

Time will tell whether the new Galaxy phone will be a smash hit or face the same fate as the fiery Note 7. Meanwhile, we will let the future worry about itself, while we take a look back at the past and scan the Galaxy S series’ evolution throughout the years.

The Samsung Galaxy S Timeline is a chronological round-up of all major releases in the company’s flagship smartphone line, from the very first model, launched in 2010, to the fresh-out-of-the-oven S8. Samsung Galaxy S was a monster for its time, but it was not perfect by any means. The S2, the thinnest phone in the world at the time of its release, was the first in the series to cause a big splash in the mobile industry.

The Samsung Galaxy S chronology was built in PowerPoint using Office Timeline, an add-in that helps users create and share beautiful timelines and Gantt charts in a matter of minutes. The Free Edition is a light but fully functional timeline maker recommended for personal or academic use, while the Plus Edition introduces more customization options and advanced features, ideal for professional presentations and reports.

Microsoft Windows Timeline

Since its first release in 1985, Microsoft’s Windows operating system has seen numerous adjustments and quite a few major transformations. Now, over three decades later, the OS looks very different, but still somehow familiar, with staple features that have survived throughout the years, increased computing power, and – more recently – a shift from the mouse and keyboard to the touchscreen. Let’s take a brief look into the history of the world’s most ubiquitous operating system, from its birth to the latest arrivals on the market.

Microsoft Windows Timeline

The Microsoft Windows Timeline illustrates some of the most important releases in the history of the OS, from version 1.0, Windows 95 and the first mobile versions, to Windows 10 and Server 2016. As an interesting fact, Windows 1.0, Microsoft’s first graphical user interface, was received poorly by critics because they considered it too mouse-focused (the mouse was relatively new at the time). It was Windows 95, released a decade later, that truly managed to cement the company’s dominance in the computer industry.

The Windows chronology was created using Office Timeline, a PowerPoint add-in that helps users build impressive timelines, schedules and charts fast and easily. The free edition of the add-in can be used to quickly build and edit visuals for personal reference or academic presentations, while the Plus version comes with more sophisticated features and customization options, ideal for professional and business communications.

The illustration is free to copy, reproduce or distribute for private or public use. To edit or update the graphic, download the Microsoft Windows Timeline PowerPoint slide here.

Juno's Jupiter Exploration Mission Timeline

In August 2011, NASA launched an orbiter named Juno that would travel 1.7 billion miles to Jupiter to take measurements, snap photos and search for clues of how the largest planet in our solar system was formed. The spacecraft successfully reached Jupiter’s orbit on July 5, 2016, and has since wowed the world multiple times with the data and images sent back. Following the orbiter’s latest close flyby at the end of March, 2017, NASA has released another set of stunning photos that stirred up great interest worldwide. To celebrate Juno’s achievements, let’s have a look at its journey through space up until now and see what its future plans are as well.

Juno Jupiter exploration timeline

The Juno Space Probe Timeline illustrates the orbiter’s expedition to Jupiter, from the moment it was launched to its presumed disposal time. The image displays some of the most important milestones in Juno’s voyage, including the moment it entered Jupiter’s orbit, its 6 perijoves (the points in orbit where Juno is closest to Jupiter), its earliest expected camera failure, and its planned end of mission. The expedition was scheduled to end in February 2018, when Juno would intentionally be deorbited into Jupiter’s atmosphere and disintegrated to eliminate space debris and contamination risks. However, after engine problems that caused the spacecraft to orbit Jupiter at a slower rate, it is believed that the mission could continue through 2019.

The Juno Space Probe Timeline was created in PowerPoint using the Office Timeline plug-in and can be copied and distributed for private or public use. The free edition of the software can be used to make quick edits to the visual, while the Plus version features more advanced timeline creation and customization options – ideal for legal, business or academic presentations.

Mars Missions Timeline: Odyssey to Present

Launched on April 7th, 2001, Mars Odyssey has spent a little over a decade orbiting the Red Planet and has since contributed numerous science results. The orbiter has been collecting groundbreaking data and serving NASA as a key communications relay and it currently holds the record for the longest serving spacecraft at Mars. Many other missions to the Red Planet have been launched since Odyssey was sent into space in 2001 – some failed, some were a success, while others are still ongoing. Let’s see a chronology of Odyssey’s successors and how they fared.

Mars Missions Timeline

The Mars Exploration Timeline illustrates all expeditions to the Red Planet since the launch of the record-breaking orbiter. Successful expeditions are marked using bright orange flags, red indicates missions that are still active, while the arrow-shaped milestones stand for failed attempts. The Schiaparelli mission is represented by a distinct icon (the diamond) on the timeline because it was not a complete success. The lander crashed, but it managed to achieve its primary goal, returning important data during the first 5 minutes of its landing attempt.

The Mars Exploration timeline was created with Office Timeline, a Microsoft PowerPoint add-in that makes building elegant timelines, Gantt charts and other visuals fast and simple. While the free edition of the add-in is fully functional, Office Timeline Plus comes with more advanced features and customization options, helping users create impressive graphics for business, academic or legal presentations.

The image is free to copy and reproduce for private or public use. To edit or update the timeline, download the Mars Exploration PowerPoint slide here.
