Socially Famous was originally co-founded in 2010 by two individuals who were realizing that social media was taking over the world and who wanted to capitalize on this new development by offering Social Media marketing services in Geneva, Switzerland. Nevertheless, the alliance failed quickly in part due to a lack in belief and also a lack of commitment so that Socially Famous had been closed down, just to be relaunched as an internet marketing directory website a few months later. Launching an information portal on the domain sociallyfamous.com had been a mistake, as the desire by Feraz Zeid
, the original founder, to relaunch Socially Famous as an internet company and sociallyfamous.com as its home on the web, brought a quick death to the portal. Today the company Socially Famous is known to develop profitable internet projects and information systems that enrich lives of internet users around the world.
