Introducing Memolane: The Story of Your Life That Writes Itself

Now, Social Media Is Truly Memorable

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - March 8, 2011) - For the first time, the 600 million Facebook users, 200 million Twitter users, and users of other popular social media services can see, search and share the valuable personal history they have created, thanks to a free internet service launched today. Memolane (www.memolane.com) presents all your photos, videos, music, tweets, check-ins, and status updates as a dynamic timeline chronicling your life as you live it, allowing you to rediscover and share your best memories with friends and families.

Sharing your life has never been so simple, yet the volume and increasing fragmentation of social media services makes it difficult to navigate through all these moments, especially when looking back in time. Memolane turns moments into great memories, capturing and visualizing all your updates from Facebook, Twitter, Foursquare, YouTube, Flickr, Last.fm, TripIt, Picasa, MySpace, Vimeo, Instagram as well as your RSS feeds, so you can see the story of your life as it evolves. Getting started is easy: in a minute's time, a lifetime of social media updates are assembled and organized, graphically showcasing the story of your life over the years.

"Hundreds of millions have been creating their personal history using Facebook, Twitter and other sites, but have been unable to see or explore it -- until now. With the launch of Memolane, you can now travel in time to relive great memories and the emotions they evoke," said Eric Lagier, co-founder and CEO of Memolane. "Memolane is an online diary that writes itself and makes your social media memorable."

Memolane has been available by invitation-only for the past few months and, in response to high demand, Memolane is now being opened to the public. Here's what some of those early users have been saying about Memolane:

"In my first random click-around I stumbled upon a day in personal history in 2007 where one tweet and three Flickr photos triggered a wave of memories and emotions. Intriguing how so much is hidden in the brain that can be released again by so few triggers..." -- Seikatsu.

"I can really go back in time and see what I did (online). I always love to visit the past and see what I did. It shows what kind of a person I am at a glance :)" -- Krishnam.

"I've found check-in history more useful than a journal. Easy to trigger memories of things I did. It's really powerful using Memolane" -- Ted.

"One great thing about Memolane is that you can see the different chapters in your life -- getting married, going to college, the birth of your first child -- Memolane celebrates your life as you live it," added Eric Lagier.
