YearBound: A Year of Your Facebook Account

yearbound 1

A friend of mine once said I should make a book of my Facebook status updates because I'??m pretty damn funny. That'??s right, people. Someone other than my mom thinks I'??m funny.

Seems there was a fly on the wall of that conversation. There'??s now an awesome app on Facebook that can do just that. Consider it your social media yearbook in the school of life online. Check out Yearbound and you can print out every funny status you've ever updated. This is the Book of You.

This is how you do it. Accept the application on Facebook. Simple. Then you build your book, beginning with the cover and selecting the year you want to profile. They have a few quite artistic styles to choose from. Then the fun begins as you customize your content '?? you can add all your profile info, select some or all the photo albums, status updates, wall posts. You can put it all in there, as much or as little as you please. There's even the ability to print out how people commented on your quips and photo trips. My favorite part is that you can add all of your friends'?? photos at the end the book. Gotta keep track of your social circles for years to come.

The application program works better when used in some browsers over others (for instance, give FireFox a shot instead of Safari). Be forewarned to double check all the pages and status updates you want to include are in fact included.

Once you'??ve created your YearBound book, you can select either hardbound, soft cover or a downloadable PDF (the least expensive option at only $9, regardless of page count). Prices are $35 for the 40 pages of a hardcover, $25 for a soft cover, with 29 cents for each additional page after that no matter the type of cover you'??ve chosen.

Yearbound uses high quality binding, paper, and ink on the market. So even after social media has come and gone and we're back to pen and paper like they did in the olden days, you'll still have hard proof that you too are hysterical.
