Timehop, Online Activity Time Capsule From This Exact Day in History


Timehop is a service that captures a user’s online activity history from Facebook, Twitter, Foursquare, Flickr, Instagram, and an iPhone’s camera roll from this exact day in history. In the previous version of Timehop, it highlighted activity from a year ago but solely through a daily email. Timehop has now launched its iOS app, which is available to download at iTunes. Both the web service and new iOS app allow users to share their online activity history and search history (from multiple past years, not just one year ago, as in the past version).

Timehop brings together your old photos and updates from Facebook, Twitter, Foursquare, Instagram, flickr and your camera roll. It makes all these memories into easily sharable items, helping you tell the stories of the past.

Here’s a screenshot of Scott Beale’s Flickr photo from this day in 2008:
