Users are increasingly finding new ways to find offline uses for Facebook. The latest? Postgram Direct, which allows a user to send a real-life postcard to someone featuring Facebook photos. Sincerely, the parent company, announced Thursday that Postagram Direct has partnered with Gap to allow users to send free postcards to friends and relatives.
Facebook photos are a great way to connect with friends and loved ones, but they don’t have to stay on your phone or computer. Through an interesting idea, Top Charms, users can bring permanence to their Facebook photos by keeping them in charm form. The project gained popularity on Kickstarter, and it appears ready to share soon.
Companies are figuring out every way to maximize the Facebook experience while users are online, but what about when they’re not logged in? A new project called Yearly Leaf is conducting an experiment in social permanence: by connecting with Yearly Leaf, Facebook users can order a moleskin-bound book recapping a year of their life on the social network.
