What if you turned your entire profile on Facebook into a real, physical book? That would be kind of cool now wouldn’t it?
Bouygues Telecom, a French mobile phone company, has actually done this, and thereby released a great way to preserve digital memories.
Instead of putting pictures into a photo album with a few captions, the company thought it would be cool if they put your Facebook into a real book, which they called the Flashback book.
“With a very simple interface in mind, you could view a person’s photo albums in one section, wall posts, and so on and so forth. This might appeal to you guys and girls out there who want to make a scrapbook or something of the sort, but don’t want to be stuck back in the nineties.”
The app was created by Bouygues Telecom’s ad agency, DDB Paris, and could include up to ten friends. The limited run of 1000 books was gone within one hour of the promotion’s launch!
