SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 06/27/12 -- Blurb, the
creative publishing and marketing platform, has unveiled an improved
Facebook to photo book workflow, making it even easier to capture
your favorite memories from Facebook in a beautiful,
bookstore-quality book. With billions of photos uploaded to Facebook
and then lost to the ever-changing wall, Blurb has created an easy
way to capture fleeting online moments and connections in a physical
product so the memories live beyond their lifecycle on Facebook.
55% of Blurb users surveyed reported that they rarely look through
old photos and comments on Facebook itself, but that those photos are
"very important" to them, and they would like the opportunity to
preserve their digital memories in some way. Using the Facebook to
photo book workflow, anyone can create a 7x7 inch square format book
in just minutes, with prices starting under $11. More information is

"There's no question that our people want to see their Facebook
photos, and the conversations around those photos, live on beyond the
wall," said Eileen Gittins, founder and CEO, Blurb. "75% of Blurb
users on Facebook have made prints of their favorite Facebook photos
because they want to preserve those special moments. But prints don't
capture the conversations as well sadly. Using services like Blurb,
it's quite affordable and simple to preserve those stories in an
elegant, timeless way."

ability to import any photos that your Facebook friends have made
