As the 10 year anniversary of 9/11 approaches, National Geographic Channel has launched an interactive Facebook app, Remembering 9/11, where people can record where they were when the Twin Towers fell.
Developed with digital agency Neo-Pangea, the app will allow users to post brief accounts of their 9/11 experiences and mark their stories with location-specific tags to be featured on the interactive map. Users will be able to explore all posted anecdotes by location and filter stories to see their friends' stories and share comments. The app will be available in 11 countries and translated into nine languages. Launching today in the US and for international users on August 8, it is timed to coincide with Remembering 9/11 Week on National Geographic Channel, which begins Sunday, August 28, in the U.S.
