Facebook is now rolling out Timeline for all users – and I’ve noticed more people adding detail to their history recently. Fortuitous then, that Timeline MovieMaker will suck in that history and turn it into a great little movie – kinda “This is your life, according to Facebook”. Some I know are shy with the amount they share (you need at least 75 photos shared) – so I thought it’d be fun to grab the video of mine and share here – give you an idea of what can be done.
It pulls out various random snaps, which you can change and edit. My favourites? I’d forgotten the snap of me in a burgundy bowler hat with Brad Pitt. I also like that it pulled out the snapshot of a Tel Aviv check-in. I was trying to fool Facebook Places that day with check-in data – achieved. I’ve never been to Israel…
Having watched and played with a few options, it’ll be really fascinating to see what companies can produce when Facebook finally release Timeline for Brands – maybe next month?

If you want to play yourself, the movie maker app is here.
I used HyperCam2 (no affiliation) for the screengrab.
