Samsung adds a twist of social integration to UK's 2011 census

2011 is the year of the all-European census, but if you're in the UK, you can join with something more than just your personal data and get your most important personal moment counted as well. Samsung launches the Social Census initiative, in which people can submit photos of moments representing their present on Facebook.

What makes this initiative slightly different than your regular Facebook group/page is that the top 100 photos from the initiative called the “Now Project” will be displayed in the London Design Museum for one night only on Thursday March 24th.

Samsung claims that the idea was inspired by the photographic capabilities of the Samsung Wave II, which also allows quick editing and uploading of photos. And some celebrities will participate as well, such as TV presenter Tim Lovejoy with a photo of him snowboarding in Whistler, Canada.
