Friday Find: tweetbook & Cozi Family Journal

Do you Twitter?  Use Facebook?  I'm all over the place it seems, here, my other blog, my business site, Facebook…it's all a bit much.  As you can probably tell by my infrequent posting these last few months…so the thought of journaling my pregnancy, or the kids' happenings, on paper is, well, only a thought.  It probably won't happen.  And really, aren't I already doing that?

I don't use Twitter as much as I use Facebook, but I've found that all those little updates really amount to something: our family journal.  Now, if only there were a way to capture it all for print.  I went looking…and I've found a couple of options:

Tweetbook – a pretty simple application that basically collects all of your recent (not sure what defines "recent" but it goes back several months) tweets and puts them in PDF format for printing.

Cozi Family Journal – what I really wanted was an application that did the "tweetbook" thing for Facebook.  I haven't found one.  But I did find Cozi – a site that is actually a ton of things, but one feature they offer is a Family Journal.  You can do as much or as little as you want with the Journal; I opted to only use the Facebook application. 

If I find a way to use all of your Facebook updates to create a book, I will let you know.  Hey, if you're a tech genius who's figured this out – will you let me know?
