Staples launches I Shred U! Facebook application
Have you been a victim of bad photo tagging on Facebook? Perhaps it was that old prom photo sporting your signature big 80â€™s hairdo? Or those pictures from the company holiday party you hoped would never resurface? Now, you can have the last laugh, with the launch of the Staples I Shred U! Facebook application from Staples, Inc. I Shred U! allows Facebook users to tell their friends how they really feel about those bad photos, by shredding it to bits via a virtual shredder and sending it back with a personalized message. I Shred U! also lets users â€œtrickâ€ photos by giving friends and family a hilarious new look.
With more than 200 million active users on Facebook uploading over 850 million photos each month, the Staples I Shred U! application will be the first of its kind to allow users to virtually shred bad photos without actually deleting the picture from their friendâ€™s Facebook album. Want to send a clear message to the friend who tagged you in that bad picture? Facebook users can choose a distinct Staples brand shredder to shred those unforgiving photos, and then alert friends of their action. To keep the fun going, users can â€œtrick outâ€ photos from their Facebook albums by adding mullets, mustaches, speech bubbles and more.
