Web Wednesday: My Famebook
Okay, so if you're a cute geek chances are you're on Facebook. With the site overtaking Google for the first time as the most popular destination on the Web, you're really missing out on a chunk of culture if you're one of the few profile-less people out there. For the rest of us that are on Facebook, you've probably seen a lot of people with the "my year in status updates" around December of 2009. I thought it was pretty neat; after all, I tend to forget all of my status updates and now they are all there in one place. Now, a new site has taken it even further...enter My Famebook, a site that aggregates all of your updates in one place and puts it into a real notebook.
Basically, it's three easy steps: you connect your Facebook account, pick your "wittiest friends" (according to the site), customize and preview it and you're done! The site automatically picks from your stream and each page has a post from your feed. Ever wanted to write a book but didn't have the time? Maybe you've been doing it all along. Need a unique coffee table book? Here it is. Or hey, how about a trip down a digital memory lane the old fashioned way? Yup, this would be it.
Of course, I do wonder if they would ever figure out a way for you to make this into a gift. Maybe one day you could stream in updates from someone else. What do you guys think? Is this a real famebook, or kind of a lamebook?
The Internet is a big place. There are so many sites to read, widgets to play with, and viral videos to watch. In the midst of all the trending topics and links being sent around, sometimes there are those little tidbits on the Internet that go unnoticed. Have something to share?
