When was the last time you memorized a cell phone number? Put a picture in a photo album? Created a real, physical invitation for a party? Thanks to Facebook, we don’t have to deal with any of those inconvenient, non-technological, memory-related things anymore. In our opinion, that’s change for the better. With Social Memories, you can document everything that happened on the social network quickly amassing more information about you than even Google.

Or, if $27 seems a little steep for what’s essentially a narcissistic trip down memory lane, you can make a book for free and share it with all the same friends that are in it. $27
