POTD: Social Media #24
El Morro National Monument, New Mexico

As much historical significance the carvings on El Morro have today, they are still essentially an early form of social media (they might even be considered graffiti if carved today), so I’m including them in my series of examples of non-electronic social media.

This is one of the oldest inscriptions on El Morro, put there by the first Governor of New Mexico, Don Juan de Oñate. It was inscribed in 1605, which (as pointed out by the literature at the monument) was fifteen years before the Pilgrims landed at Plymouth Rock.
