Soon my child will be welcomed into the world. After seeing the Google adverts for Gmail and G+, I was inspired to do something similar. But as much as Google might be trying to force G+ down our throats, I can’t see it surviving unless they make it essential to our web experience. So my idea led to Facebook.
I’ve created a Facebook page for my child, the idea of which is simple – it’s a way for us to share photos of their youth (including scan photos) with friends and family. In years to come (with luck), they’ll be able to look back at these early days and see the excitement and happiness of their birth and see what life was like before. But will Facebook survive long enough?
So far I’ve mostly just uploaded cat pictures, photos of me and my wife and a few scan photos. I also managed to make a video of their heartbeat and post that. I plan to write for them until are old enough to do it themselves.
Hope I’m not jinxing anything otherwise this could be awkward.
Wish me luck.
