It seems kind of ironic to even contemplate turning Facebook into a coffee table book. After all, the most successful social media experiment in history has effectively replaced paper in many cases - especially when it comes to photo sharing. But, how about if I said to you that you could have a beautiful coffee table book filled with all your status updates and photos from your Facebook history. Would you think I was mad? Well, that is exactly what Likebook is. You can have your Likebook - in soft or hard cover - delivered quickly to your door and see everything you were doing and feeling over the years - all taken directly from your Facebook archives.
 
Well, you may have liked it, shared it and exchanged it on Facebook but what do you do with all those treasured memories that you have shared over the years - some fantastic and some that could be rather embarrassing - once they have been published ? Do you remember exactly what you were doing over summer of 2009 and who your best friends were at the time? So, what if it was possible to print a book of your Facebook history to keep, archive and show to your friends and family? All this information remains on Facebook's servers and will eventually escape your memory. You never know, some of it might even be deleted by Mr Zuckerberg's team eventually and it will be gone forever.  With Likebook, you can preserve your story with this unique record of your Facebook journey. Make sure you keep all the great moments of your life - even the small ones - and make sure that, rather than falling between the cracks, they regain their rightful place ... in the coffee table book in your hands. Do you prefer the feel of glossy paper or fine binding? Whatever your taste - thanks to the customization option - you can create a Likebook that suits your personality with your choice of cover photos and multiple colors. There are three different layouts and two contrasting types of covers available and, of course, you get to pick the book subject too.
 
There's no doubt about it, i can think of a number of people who would absolutely love their whole Facebook life put together in a book. There are one or two there that I would read in a flash and they would be hilarious. Likebook is a little like a paper version of Flipboard and has numerous ways of customizing your book. You can even preview the first chapters of your Likebook before ordering! Whether it is a birthday present, a gift to a loved one or just to keep a record of your life over the last few years. So, what is this all going to cost you, you may be asking? Well, you can order a copy of your 8"x10" (20x25ml) book for under ten bucks but for a full 500 page epic it could run to a little over $150 for the hardback version and printing and delivery is fast. Imagine the look on their face when they open up their Christmas presents and Likebook is one of them. I'd love one of mine. Anyone listening?
