The #FollowFriday Series highlights today’s up-and-coming, active and all-around noteworthy Twitter accounts the AudioAcrobat staff deems worthy of following; while at the same time peering deeper into the soul(-cial media) of each account and providing a brief-yet-informative analysis.
After making 1000+ #FollowFriday recommendations on Twitter throughout the first forty two weeks of 2011, the AudioAcrobat team is proud to announce this week’s featured profile … a service which curates, documents and relates historical and current events to one another!
In today’s posting, we will not only share this week’s featured #FollowFriday account, @timelines, but will also take our readers in for a closer look at twenty five of the one thousand one hundred and thirty seven accounts @timelines is currently following … a mirror, if you will, into the soul(-cial media) behind the first web site that enables people to collaboratively record and share history!
Yep. That’s right, we just said it … “soulcial media”. We also said “the first web site that enables people to collaboratively record and share history” in the same sentence. Fancy, huh?
Interested in discovering, recording and sharing history … right now? Get started at Timelines.com

More about Timelines
On Timelines®, you can record the details of events, connect them in space and through time to other related events, and contribute to a better collective understanding of what occurred at a particular place and time.
We believe that history is made up of a series of events. Timelines® enables people to record the specifics of events with descriptions, photos, videos and other references. Once an event is recorded, it is shared with other Timelines.com users who can contribute their unique information to the chronicling of it. Users of Timelines.com collectively vote on what is the best way to remember that event, without censoring the contributions of others. Also, the event becomes a permanent part of Timelines.com so that others can learn about it and how that event is connected to other events related based on time, place and/or topic.
