  • Take lots of photos of friends and friends of friends who might become special friends. You’ll remember more quickly if their photos have real names.
  • Pics or videos of your favorite concert that you email to your friends are much more identifiable to them with real names.
  • When updating your blog, JuiceCaster, or other image sharing service, photos and videos with names on them help when posting. When emailing them to the service real names allow you to see and chose the right one.
  • If you’re really active tonight, use Show Date to speed the name change at each venue you visit.
