These days, your Facebook Timeline can serve as a digital scrapbook of your life: birthdays, graduations, weddings, trips to Disneyland and, yes, the time you got a puppy. A new service wants to help Facebook users move those memories from the cloud into a permanent, physical keepsake.
Likebooks will convert content from your Facebook Timeline and print it in a physical book, as shown in the video above. Your status updates, photos and comments from friends can be printed in your custom book. Content is either pulled from a specific date range or an entire year (as far back as 2007).
Depending on how much content you choose to archive, a Likebook can cost from $12 to $137 and can range from 25 to 500 pages. They even come in soft or hardcover.
Likebooks says Facebook users create enough content on the social network to fill about 100 pages of a physical book per year.
“Users already have several years of their personal life story on Facebook,” Patrick Osinski, marketing director of Likebooks, said in a news release. “We provide a way to respond to the basic human need to gather, archive, and share the personal stories that are stored in social networks.”
With most things moving from analog to digital nowadays, this is a definitely a reverse approach. But this physical memento could be fun as a coffee table conversation piece or simply on your own bookshelf when you want to casually stroll down digital memory lane.
