The Feed: Facebook The Book

The Facebook Book: Here comes another amazingly stupid social media related product. Social Memories is a new app that turns all of your Facebook data (everything from long past status updates to “likes”) into snazzy infographics that you can print out and turn into a book!? What the what? Sadly this isn’t even totally new. An office of ad agency DDB already went there. If you really want a book of all your Facebook crap put into pictures, I think there might be something wrong with you. I really hope this doesn’t turn into the new family heirloom that gets passed down to your kids and your kids’ kids. Fast Company Design

 

Twitter Account of the Day: The description for the twitter account @oldmansearch says: “My dad is 81 years old. I’m teaching him how to use the internet. I told him twitter was how to search things on Google. These tweets are what he’s searching.” Could be fake, but it’s kind of funny.

 

Video of the Day: Facebook faux pas: a 13-year-old New Hampshire student was suspended from school for five days because she posted on her Facebook page that she wished Osama bin Laden would kill her math teacher. Huh? Someone doesn’t pay attention to the news. Doesn’t she know Osama is dead? Oh, and that she shouldn’t publically wish people dead?

 

Aww AIM: AIM sure isn’t what it used to be. Everyone is on Gchat or Facebook chat, and whatever else there is out there now. Gizmodo reflects on the good old days when AIM was king and how AOL’s instant messaging services was kind of like Facebook before there was a Facebook. Gizmodo

 

Tumblr of the Day: I know you were just thinking to yourself, “What is Tom Hanks up to these days?” Right? Tom Hanksimals
