Timehop: Jump into your past

Today in morning, when I woke up I checked my e-mail box like always. An e-mail was there which was really touchy. It was about my activity on facebook one year ago which reminded me so many things about my one year before life. Now, you were thinking that how I got that e-mail and who send it to me. The simple answer for this is Timehop. And you can also get e-mails about your activity one year ago.

What is Timehop?
Yeah, I know you are thinking that what is this exactly. Let me tell you. Timehop is a service that tells you what you were doing one year ago at the same day on your social networks. It's like a time capsule. And I think it is really interesting to know about your past activities which we almost have forgotten.

Social Networks under it
The interesting thing is that it is not only for Facebook but also for some other social networks. And they are Instagram, Foursquare and Twitter. You will get e-mails about what location you were searching on Foursquare? What you were tweeting on Twitter? What pictures you were taking on Instagram? or What you were sharing on Facebook? one year ago. Don't think that it is similar to new Facebook timeline.The difference here is that Timehop allows you to view other network posts in addition to Facebook. And the Facebook history more readily viewable by friends while Timehop is more private, since the e-mails are sent only to the subscriber.

How it works?
If you go at Timehop then you will be asked to connect to the site via Facebook. From there, you can set up your Twitter, Foursquare, and Instagram accounts. After completing all the steps, Timehop will begin generating your posts from one year ago. The downside to this website is that you won’t be able to see your past posts right away. Instead, Timehop will send you past information to your current email account. Sadly, this will take one day to complete. In addition, Timehop will be sending you past social media posting information every day, so you can really see where your mind was one year ago.

What is the need?
You might be thinking that what is the need of doing this. But believe me, it is very fun to know that what we were tweeting, checking into, what photos we snapped and shared, or more simply what we were doing a year ago today.

If you think that it is useful for you then please sign in to Timehop.
