Take Facebook Photos and Turn Them Into Mixbooks!

logo_facebook.jpg

Our latest update – we started an application on one of the most popular social networking sites out there – Facebook!

It’s called Photobooks! by Mixbook. In order for us to expand and help others to enjoy the benefits and ease of Mixbooking, we decided to venture out and make an online application that would turn Facebook users’ photo albums into Mixbook albums with the click of a button. Now anyone who adds our Facebook application can have a Mixbook in seconds – it can be played like a slideshow on the profile page or ordered as a physical printed copy. Is that cool or what?

If you have a Facebook, you can add the application and try it out. You can find us at /http://apps.facebook.com/photo_books/

Try it out and see how you like us,
Alison

And Now….Mixbook is Even Better

We just put the finishing touches on a big set of performance improvements, bug fixes and some various tweaks to the site.  We’re laying the foundation for some exciting new pieces, so keep watching the blog for updates. 🙂

Some of the new features that you will see:

  • New Explore Page Views – view the most popular published books by day, week or month. Did your book make it to the top?  Watch out, you might get featured on the blog.
  • Expanded Site Layout – we’ve given you a lot more room to play with on Mixbook.  Soon we’ll be adding features to fill it up. 🙂
  • Promotion Extended – Get books for $9.99 with FREE Shipping using code MXBK07 until December 31.

As always, if you have ideas for the site, please feel free to send them to us.  We review EVERY email you send us, and we always respond.  If we really like your idea, we might just give you some credit toward a free Mixbook. 🙂

Have a Merry Christmas!
