Ken Ronkowitz posted this on LinkedIn, and asked if perhaps this was social networking before it was cool. Having owned a party-based business during my lifetime for a short stint during my stay-at-home mom days, I was immediately drawn to this story. I would confirm that yes, Tupperware parties–and other party-based businesses like it–definitely are the pre-cursor to social networking as we know it today. Now, social media wasn’t around when I had my business back then. It had barely begun online activity at all before the business that I chose (or at least that branch of the company) went under/closed shop. I wonder how I would’ve done if it had been now instead of then?
