Memoriz was our hack for the Facebook Hackathon at CMU on November 5th and we ended with wining the competition and a chance to participate in the All University Hackday at Facebook.
Facebook events are a widely used platform for organizing and planning activities and trips. But they don't do enough to tell the story of the event. For instance, at a recent party, five people clicked pictures. They uploaded them on Facebook, but everyone else saw these pictures as disconnected albums from different users. There is no way howsoever to either see them together. Our goal was to visualize Facebook events in a unique manner and allowing attendees to collect and share photos.
Facebook is used as a sign in mechanism on Memoriz. Name and profile pictures are accessed using Facebook's Graph API. Memoriz accesses friend list, album lists and past events through the API.
The events are visualized on google maps using the Google Maps API.
