Fiber Optic Social Network was started as a blog site in 2008, and the first name was Fiber Optic Mania. The beginning was simple and the blog was hosted with the Blogger platform. It was a personal blog started by Mr. Jay. From there we moved to a larger platform of a social network when many of the visitors started showing their interest in writing news, and articles. We tried to keep the name of Fiber Optic Mania but simplified it to shorten the URL of the site. Thus we decided to make it FOMSN – Fiber Optic Mania Social Network.
Fiber Optic Mania is a group of around 50 active contributors. Some of our contributors are interested in promoting their company’s product, while some are interested in sharing their knowledge in fiber optics and telecommunication in general.
Fiber Optic Mania tries to simplify complicated scientific and technical concepts. The field of fiber optic technology use complex language and hence it is difficult for people without a high scientific or technical academic background to understand the ideas.
The world of telecommunication, especially fiber optics is a mystery even to people with considerable exposure to scientific fields. Fiber Optic Mania uses simple language and plain English to explain complex theories and hypothetical concepts. Probably this will be the only place in the whole internet world that you see such plain English to explain Fiber optic theories. Read it. Enjoy it and make it your own.
