The Museum of Me: A Visual Archive of Your Social Life

Have you ever wondered what your life would look like as a museum exhibit? Enter Intel’s Museum of Me. (Warning: This is really, really cool and slightly addictive.)

The tool connects to your Facebook information and creates, in Poynter’s Jeff Sondeman‘s very apt words, “a stunning video tour of a futuristic museum about your life and friends.”

The “tour” of the virtual rooms begins with this message: “This exhibition is a journey of visualization that explores who I am.” Users then walk through rooms, which are filled with friends’ profile pictures, personal photos, videos and more. Another room shows words frequently used on your wall. With appropriately stirring background music, the application emphasizes just how much social media connects us all. (Our sister site, AgencySpy, recently reviewed this, too.)

All I can say is try it. And once you have, share your thoughts with us! Was this creepy or cool?
