People managing a Facebook Page can now easily create a movie using photos, videos and status updates from their brands’ Timeline.
Timeline Movie Maker from marketing agency Definition 6 spits out a chronological, one-minute clip after the browser tool “parses nostalgia,” “captures your good side” and “finds I-Remember-Whens” on your Timeline.
Users can customize the movie (see below), picking from a selection of music and replacing any visual element. Admins also can write status updates or messages to sprinkle throughout the video.
Definition 6 collaborated with Facebook on the tool, which originally rolled out in January for everyday Facebook users before becoming available this week for Page administrators.
“Timeline Movie Maker was a great way for people to share the stories of their lives in a creative way,” Paul Hernacki, CTO at Definition 6, told Mashable. “We wanted to bring that experience to brands, further connecting brands with their fans.”
To make a movie, a brand’s Timeline must have a least 50 public photos. The tool now supports nine languages other than English (Italian, Korean, Japanese, Taiwanese, Mandarin, Brazilian, Portuguese, Turkish and Russian) and lets users change the text when they share their creations on Facebook.
Definition 6 has no plans to make the videos embeddable. They can be shared only to Facebook.
