When I ask people why they love Foursquare so much, they increasingly point to the service 4squareand7yearsago, which sends a daily email with the subject line: “Where you were a year ago on October 07, 2010. ”
The email tells you what day it was, where you went and even what the weather was like: October 07, 2010 was a Thursday. You went to 3 places. The weather was: 73°F 53°F.
It then lists your check-ins, venue descriptions, along with comments and who you checked in with. One friend last night told me that service has even prompted him to leave more comments with his check-ins.
Today, the mad geniuses behind the popular web app have released “And7YearsAgram,” its new Instagram-from-a-year-ago service that sends you a daily email with, “What did you see on October 07 2010?”
Sign up here for a visual glimpse of your past. If you already use the first service, your accounts will be linked so you’ll receive both in the same email. I already know this will encourage me to take more Instagram photos. I just hope the boys are somehow making money out of this awesome free service.
