Is It Old? Lets you know if that link you found is old news

When surfing the internet, you’re always encountering new and interesting or funny things. Your natural desire is usually going to be to share these things with your friends, however, that may not be the smart thing to do. What if this wonderful new thing has actually been around for years? Now your friends are going to think that you’ve been living under a rock! Well fear not, as Is It Old? has you covered.

This simple website has one simple function, which is to let you know whether or not that link you found has already been around the block a few times. As you can see above, these Giant Plush Microbes have been around for years. This information is found via Twitter, which makes it more interesting. Instead of simply finding out how old the page itself is, the site uses data from Twitter. That’s because there is a big difference between finding out how old something is, and how long ago people started tweeting about it.
