We all know there is no shortage of social networking sites on the internet. Some help us get in contact with long lost friends, others let us follow the moment by moment happenings of celebrities and so on. Every once and a while a social networking site pops up that’s just plain fun. Such is the case with
The concept is simple. Dailybooth allows you to track your life through pictures. In theory you take a picture, using your computer’s web camera (they recently added the ability to e-mail pictures to upload as well) or upload one, once a day. And after time goes by you can look back on how you’ve changed over the year, or more.
Other Dailybooth users can comment on your pictures and respond back with a picture of their own if they desire. There is a Twitter like feature where you can choose to follow other users and thus be alerted via e-mail when they’ve snapped a new picture.
Once you’ve set up an account, your Dailybooth dashboard becomes the place to view all of your friend’s activity. You’ll see their latest pictures, comments etc. You create a personal profile where all your photos are stored and add as much or as little personal information about yourself as you wish.
The site has some widgets which enhance the experience as well. You can view all of your snapshots across a 2D scroller or view them in 3D in a iTunes “cover art” type set up. There’s a Mac OS X dashboard widget and the ability to view all your images via a YouTube video too.
Dailybooth is a fun way to see the day to day changes of friends. It’s also fun to see how you yourself change on a day to day basis. There is talk of an iPhone application being developed as well.
