Facebook has taken the place of diaries for many of us - and a British start-up is taking the idea full circle, with gift 'diaries' created automatically from Facebook posts.

The colourful diaries are priced from £8.49, and are automatically filled with Facebook pictures and updates.

The company, Loccit, says that it has taken 8,000 orders in two days after launching the service.

Users can create their own diaries, or create a diary for a friend using shared information - although the amount on offer depends on your friend's privacy settings. The printed diaries can also use Twitter, LinkedIn and Foursquare information.

The site navigates users through a quick creation process, then books are available to order. The app was named one of Stuff magazine's 'Apps of the Year'.

The company also offers calendars, photobooks, mugs and mousemats.

The site is designed so people can keep a private 'diary' of all their social networks in one place - keeping Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn information together safely.

"Loccit is is an online private diary (also known as a 'private journal' in some parts of the world). It connects with all your favourite services, including Facebook, Twitter Instagram and more and automatically creates your life story. Some of our users use Loccit simply to create a Facebook Diary," says the company.

"You can update your Loccit directly using the website or our iPhone diary app (or journal app), Loccit, or, just connect your favourite networks and check back every month to view your life story as it is collated automatically."
