Something nice about Facebook.

Facebook turned ten yesterday and while not everyone is on Facebook and a lot of people don’t like Facebook, we’re there both as Colehaus Cats and Mom who is Carole Cole.

Yesterday, some of us (Dad didn’t) got a nice surprise by way of a Facebook movie made up from Facebook posts. And while we can’t share our exact movie here, probably because that kind of technology is way over Mom’s head (and it might be illegal to do so), she did sit down and typed out the script and added the photos the Colehaus Cats movie used. Now, keep an open mind. Here it goes:

(simple, upbeat piano tune begins in the background)

(A medium blue background, the Facebook logo and the words, “A look back”)

(Blue background pulls back to show a photo collage of Colehaus Cat pictures uploaded in the last 8 months or so.)

(Photo collage moves to our “I like cats” logo with text, “You joined in 2013”. Actually, we were there in 2012 but voluntarily switched over to a fan page to avoid being deleted. We lost a year but we’re okay with that.)


(Photo collage moves forward to the words, “Your first moments”)

(Background piano music swells to include flute. It’s a happy, heartwarming little ditty.)

(Photo labeled October 2013 of mama-to-be Erinn Zuzu lying on her back just hours before she gave birth to the Niblets.)


(Photo moves on to photo of Angel Cameron in an October 2013 Friday Flashback post.)

(Background music now includes violins and the words read, “Your most liked posts”)

Thanks, Facebook. You made Mom all misty-eyed. We think that means you done good!

  4. We did watch your FB video and LOVED it! Mommy was naming each kitty as their picture appeared and smiling at the same time. 🙂

  5. That was very cool.

  6. How did you do it with a page?! I want one for my page. It was always a page, though, never a profile.

    • We didn’t make up the movie; the Facebook people did it on their own. Mr. Colehaus wanted one for his page too but he didn’t have enough photos for them to make up up.

  7. Your movie was much better than those on FB

  8. Your Facebook movie was awesome! Maybe because we know all the kitties, but we were so excited as we watched. 🙂

  9. That sounds terrific. Who made this for you? We aren’t on Facebook. Mommy says she doesn’t have time; though, our dad does Facebook. Purrs and paw-pats, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

    • Facebook made it for us. We didn’t ask or sign up for one. We’re guessing they made up videos for just about everyone who had enough photos uploaded to do so.

  10. What a sweet collage of memories for you!

  11. I saw this one and loved it. I thought mine dealt too much with those awful Face in Holes I used to do before TW learned Photoshop.

  12. Have you seen ShowmeCats site ? X. We are are on there

  13. I bet it was really lovely,xx Speedy

  14. Posso imaginar como ficou bonito, as fotos são lindas e cheias de significados especiais para vocês, eu também ficaria com os olhos marejados hehehe

  15. I didn’t know you could do it with your page!! 🙁 Though I haven’t had mine for very long.

    Yours was brilliant and it really told a super story! xox

  16. That was sure a nice surprise from FB !
