Baby Cover Photo National Geographic Free Facebook App Just Launched


Here's something that's not only really fun, it's free. National Geographic magazine just announced today the launch of a new baby photo magazine cover Facebook app. This celebrates their May cover story on the possible genetic link to human longevity which will be on newsstands from April 30.

I'm a Baby Boomer so here's the cover I just created using a black and white photo of me as a little girl.

This new app, presented by Prudential, allows you to upload any favorite baby picture of your kid, grandchild or even of yourself and then instantly turn it into a mock National Geographic complete with the iconic yellow-border cover. You can then have some fun and share your National Geo cover shot with your friends and fans via Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest.

The Back Story
The May issue of the magazine stirred internal debate among National Geographic staffers to determine which baby would grace the cover of the May issue. Unable to decide, they created four different magazine covers that were randomly distributed to subscribers and newsstands, each featuring a different baby. Taking the idea a step further, National Geographic contacted digital marketing company ZOG Digital ( to create a customizable cover app that allows consumers to create their own iconic National Geographic magazine cover featuring their favorite baby photo and to share those cover photos via social media. Learn more about the back story of the baby cover shoot here.
