Social Media

Simple visual organization of your social media efforts

Memolane calls itself “your time machine for the web” which visually organizes your social networking presences and shared media in a timeline to “keep the memories alive” all in one place. It’s like a visual, sexier FriendFeed and although it’s in private beta, they’re letting users in fairly quickly.

Memolane supports RSS feeds, Facebook, Picasa, Twitter, Flickr, Foursquare, Tripit, Spotify, and more are on the way (and they take suggestions).

Memolane is completely searchable by time, location, events and people, and you can group different instances into “stories.” It’s all sharable and users have control over who has access to their Memolane.

For real estate, this could be extremely useful to visually show a listing client your efforts in a “story” with dates or simply a refresher to remind you what you said and what the context was.

The picture above is of my Memolane and I’ve had fun playing with it, but (rightfully so), it doesn’t support private Twitter accounts like mine, so right now, it’s mostly just a visual organization of our humor blog but I have high hopes for this beta product!

    This looks like it could be a great one stop shop for all of my social media accounts. Could never get into FriendFeed, but this definitely looks like a better product. Looking forward to checking it out when it comes out.

    Wow. That looks pretty cool. Does it default to just a private view? I would like to see my own, but not sure I would want to share the whole stream with everyone. hmm. Thank you. Fascinating new idea.

    Thanks Lani for a great write up. I only just saw this now. Thanks to Ken Jansen to tweet about it. You are all welcome to take a ride down Memolane – use invite code ‘scobleizer’ at

    We just got nominated to the SXSWi Awards in the category Experimental – These are cutting-edge and trend-setting destinations that are pushing the envelope and challenging our perceptions of the web.

    We look forward spending some time in Austin.
