Facebook users panicking about the short lifespan of their profiles can now preserve them for future enjoyment in a book.
For $24 a year, Ninuku Archivists will automatically download all the juiciest tidbits of your profile and use them to churn out chronological and monthly PDF ‘chapters’.
Voila! The days of your life interpreted via your Facebook photos, updates and comments, and ready to be printed, bound and stored on your bookshelf… or given to friends and family as a really personal gift?
As superfluous as it all sounds, Ninuku insists on its website that the service is about storing your memories on “good old fashion paper” rather than leaving them to disappear into the empty void that is cyberspace. Users can even doctor their own personal histories by editing, deleting or just tweaking the truth about exactly what happened last New Year’s Eve before they save the chapters forevermore in PDF.
And don’t worry about forgetting the meaning behind those cryptic comments either. Ninuku lets you add clarifications and footnotes to explain to future generation just why you decided to pose for that photo inside a wastepaper bin.
But the service does has one other major selling point beyond the obvious sentimental benefit of having all your past transgressions in print. Ninuku allows users to delete anything directly from Facebook’s servers with a simple click of a button. It’s to prevent against security breaches, of course.
