So both my girlfriend and myself got tired of how much personal information we had out there on the respective sites that we have joined. The result was the two of us literally sitting down and purging our Facebook accounts and removing our Myspace accounts completely. However, it also brought up a wonderful concept that really should be done.
When dealing with Facebook, the main reasons most people want to keep it is because they have the contacts with old friends and they don’t want to lose all the pictures. Well, wouldn’t it be nice if you could just click a button on a photo album and download all the pictures from that album to your computer in a single zip file? Or be able to go to all the images where you are tagged and download all of those files? As is, you can already go through and save each individual file pretty easily, but that just takes WAY too long to go through all 200+ images that have me tagged in them AND then make sure I have every single image that I ever posted to my profile. Well, long story short, I am thinking about trying to get a group together to make this small application for Facebook. It probably won’t be happening within the next couple weeks, but maybe in a month or so, after I have my business ideas going a little bit (I might make it a first project to get the sites name out there?) I will tackle it. We shall see about that, but at least now I have the idea in writing and out there, so worst case scenarios are a) someone else makes it or b) it never gets made. Either way, here is the start of a possibility.
Also, I have continued working on my business ideas/plans, but unfortunately have gotten side tracked by having to deal with a couple people getting involved that I didn’t really want to have knowing. Today (or it might have been last night, doesn’t really matter) I sent off an NDA to both of those individuals so that hopefully I can tie things up with a pretty bow legally and ensure no competition from either of them (only really worried about one of them even doing anything with the information thought). I will naturally do my best to update on this soon.
