As we all know, social media networks such as Facebook have taken over the internet as a means to express yourself through status updates, pictures, videos and a way to connect with friends, past and present. It’s a fascinating concept, built around every aspect of one’s life through one site. To be able to go to one site and browse friends, videos, pictures, etc.; it is quite an amazing feature to have.
One company, Intel, has gone above and beyond in order to make your Facebook status that much better. They have developed a flash site, specifically designed to put your Facebook on full display by accessing your photos, wall posts, links, friends and other aspects of your page.
Introducing the Museum of Me.
The Museum of Me gathers all of the data that you allow it to, including those features listed above and compiles it all into one giant art exhibit, beautifully displaying every aspect of your Facebook page. The site takes your data and artistically places it in what seems to be a virtual museum of your life.
Playing along with great, relaxing musical sounds, the museum will archive all of your past and present activity on Facebook.
In a world in which social media has become a mainstream journal of sorts, this type of flash website is a great twist on what you’ve already seen, but wouldn’t mind having it all show up again. Just imagine a real world museum, displaying your life. Shrink it down to a computer screen and that’s exactly what you will get.
It’s no normal site, but Intel has masterfully found a great way to promote their product through something so eye-catching that you’re almost guaranteed to see their short advertisement at the end. Of course, you’ll stay to see your entire ‘exhibit’, thus making it a very plausible event that you will see that ad which makes Intel’s marketing plan on this one a very sneaky, yet very successful method.
If you have about five to ten minutes spare, to allow time for the site to gather your data and then watch your display, this site is a must-see for anybody with a Facebook.
It won’t show everything that you’ve had on your Facebook page and leaves out some friends, but the amount of data it does compile and the interpretation they put on it is a wonderful show. You can check out the Museum of Me right here and of course connect to Facebook when prompted to on the homepage. Before long, you will be immersed in the story of your life in exhibit form allowing you to take in the sites of your Facebook in a display lasting roughly three minutes.
In terms of a flash website, this has got to be at the top of the list for one of the most entertaining and well-crafted on the internet and is definitely worth a look for anyone that does have a Facebook and enjoys a bit of art in their lives.
