Memolane announced that they were acquired and the Memolane website and services shut down on February 22, 2013. Hopefully good for the employees and investors, but sad for those of us who enjoyed this cool way to aggregate and visualize your online presence. Timehop is a similar (but in my opinion, not nearly as cool) service that can partially fill the gap. And of course the Facebook timeline took a lot of the wind out of Memolane’s sails. I wish them the best in their new endeavors. And thanks… for the memories.

Some time ago, the good folks at Memolane made it super easy for self-hosted WordPress users to embed their Memolane or stories right on their blog, like my own “lane” below. Give it a try! Click and drag the “lane” left to right, or down to view days with many entries. Click on an item to expand the view.
Want to try it? Sign up for Memolane (be sure to add me as a friend), connect as many services as you want, download this WordPress plugin and follow these simple instructions. You can embed either your own “lane” or story on any post or page using a short code. Simple!
Do you use Memolane? Like it? Hate it? What do you think?
