Geocities.com was the first major “social network” which enabled anyone to create their website and publish information on the Web. It was created in 1994, acquired by Yahoo in 1999 and shut down in 2009.
Initiatives have been emerging to preserve the content of Geocities, such as the Archive Team project which gathered 641 GB of information in 2009, oOCities or Geocities.ws.
Arquivo.pt also integrated Geocities history in its collections!
By making the historical collection of Geocities available, Arquivo.pt intends to contribute to the development of innovative studies in areas such as Arts, Humanities or Sociology (see a resume).
