What have you been sharing with friends on facebook? How might those bits of information be helpful to your memory writing process? If you knew that you were saving everything you wrote on facebook, would it encourage you to share more with your facebook friends?
Preserving memories is important to me, sharing with my friends and family is important as well. I love that I can combine the two by saving my status updates and assigning those items to an appropriate journal category.
HOW TO SAVE YOUR FACEBOOK: Click on “manage sources” (left menu column) or the COLLECT button. The “Manage Outside Source Connections” view will appear. (See example image below.)
Click on the arrow in the facebook row. You will see two options “A” for auto collect and a green check box – for connect and collect. If you choose “A” your facebook status will be automatically collected. If you do not want every facebook item to be collected simply choose the green check box.
A pop up box will appear asking you to verify and give permission for Journella™ to connect to your facebook account.
If you chose the green check box the words “View Collect” will appear. Click on “View Collect” and you will be able to choose only the status updates you wish to save into your Journella™ account.
I admit, I get a little bit of a rush going back to my calendar view and seeing all the little facebook icons appear. (Be sure you have selected View All or View Sources to see your facebook icons.)
