From Closet to Facebook Timeline

sneak peak at the new Facebook Timeline

Facebook timeline is all the buzz today at f8 (for those non-Valley types, that's the Facebook developer conference). As a company whose business it is to help folks digitize and share their own personal timelines, we're very excited about it.

Here's the deal: Facebook timeline is part of a new profile interface, and allows you to add content to your own personal timeline. A snapshot of my woefully barren timeline is here (look to the right of the profile):

Now, regrettably, the bulk of your photography collection that would naturally illustrate your personal timeline is probably collecting dust somewhere in a dark corner of your house. And that, friends, is where we come in. We not only scan photos, but we scan slides and convert negatives to digital. We also transfer VHS to DVD – hey, the '80s and '90s deserve some love too.

Since GoPhoto is the only scanning service that puts your scans into free online albums with unlimited storage and 1-click Facebook share, filling out that Facebook Timeline is actually as easy as packing up a box with all your old photos, slides and negatives and sending it off to us for the flat rate of $16 round trip and 37¢ a scan.

Hey, getting your pictures to digital so that you can preserve and share them online is what we do anyway. Now Facebook is giving you an easy chronological feature to organize and share them. And, even better news: we'll be augmenting our Facebook app to more easily enable bulk transfer of photos.

Facebook Timeline launches for everyone next week or so, but if you must absolutely positively have it right this second, our pals at TechCrunch tell you how.

    Your service is a great idea, and integrating it into Timeline is perfect. I built Timeline over the last 9 months and love hearing about all the ways people want to use and connect to it. I hope your service does very well. :)
