Facebook App Wiped Facebook Timeline for Alzheimer Day

This is a really unique idea for raising awareness about one of the symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease, the loss of long-term memory. The Facebook app wiped our Facebook timelines for one day.

An awareness campaign for Alzheimer’s Disease International is asking people to donate their Facebook timeline in support of World Alzheimer’s Day on September 21st. By downloading an app, Facebook users will be able to experience how it feels to lose their memories for a day.

The app will lie dormant until September 21st when it will activate, wiping users’ memories from their timeline including pictures, status, videos, friends, etc. These will be replaced with a message that reads: “Imagine your life without memories. For 36 million people living with Alzheimer’s disease, this is reality.”
