In November 2006, Google bought the video sharing powerhouse YouTube for an “astronomical” $1.65 billion. The first video was uploaded to YouTube on April 23rd, 2005. It quickly became the default site on the web to upload video clips of just about anything; dogs, cats, babies, and yes, some copyrighted stuff. You couldn’t discuss video on the web without mentioning YouTube. Does this story sound familiar at all? It sounds like what just happened with Instagram and Facebook, of course.
Pastcards is a web app that pulls in your Foursquare, Facebook and Instagram posts from Christmas seasons’ past and then lets you create shareable postcards. (via Make Christmas Cards from Facebook Memories with PastCards)
