Building the Museum of Me

June 3, 2011 | By | Comments (1)

As one who is constantly on social media channels such as Facebook – for both work and play – I’ll admit to being a little burned out on all the sharing. Thinking of clever things to say, uploading happy photos of my kids, approving friend requests, posting updates, giving items a “thumbs up…”

I’m exhausted and about ready to disconnect.

But just as I found myself wondering what was the point to all this sharing and posting, enter Intel’s “Museum of Me,” which, with your permission leads you through a virtual museum created from the content within your Facebook Page.

I’ll admit, even as jaded as I’ve become to all things social and digital, there was something heartwarming about the presentation of my friends, photos and updates in this manner. I particularly enjoyed noting how many times the words mom, mommy, and mother appeared in one part of the exhibition.

Using the iShowU application, I was able to capture the video (below), for those who want to see the Museum of Kristin Sundin Brandt. But what I really want to know is – have you built the Museum of You?
