HP Snapfish brings Facebook posts to life
Snapfish by HP introduced SocialPics, a web application that curates the best moments from a person’s Facebook Timeline and displays them in a personalised book.
SocialPics automatically identifies the most popular Facebook photos, comments and status updates and creates a 20-page, 8-inch x 8-inch custom photo book.
“Sharing photos continues to be a fun way for people to connect with one another online,” said Helen Vaid, general manager, Snapfish by HP. “We wanted to enhance this experience by offering a tool that captures moments from a person’s social life on Facebook and displays these milestones in a printed keepsake they can share for years to come.”
SocialPics makes it quick and easy to create a Facebook Timeline photo book. The application connects with Facebook and filters meaningful content from the user’s profile based on comments, “Likes” and other interactions, and automatically arranges the content in chronological order.
Customers can customise the content by choosing a specific timeframe for their book, adding a fun title and selecting from two cover styles - soft cover or hard cover. The soft-cover book is great for casual Facebook postings about vacations and memories from school. The hard cover lends a more formal and polished look, making it a great choice for users who want to display important experiences, such as an engagement, wedding or birth.
Designed to complement the size and resolution of photos uploaded to Facebook, SocialPics Books are ideally suited to display rich social content. The app also includes rich customization features, including the ability to delete content blocks, such as photos, comments and status updates.
To kick off the launch of SocialPics, Chris Hardwick, celebrity comedian, podcaster and founder of Nerdist Industries, is sharing his social life with fans with his own SocialPics Book.
Actress Melissa Joan Hart also will share her Facebook Timeline photo book with fans in September. To see both celebrities’ books, visit the Snapfish Facebook page.
