(CBS/What's Trending) - The second half of May marks the beginning of graduation season. Social networks have been busy over the past week with soon-to-be grads live tweeting commencement ceremonies, saying goodbye to friends and discussing the end of their four-year tours in academia.

Luckily, there are many different ways grads and their families can commemorate this huge milestone. Since we've even received emails asking for help, we've compiled some of our favorite sites that can help you or someone you love celebrate the end of college.

Memolane (http://memolane.com/) is like a digital scrapbook for anyone who uses social media. You can import posts and photos from Facebook, Twitter, foursquare and more to build a timeline of special events.

Storify (http://storify.com/) is another great way you can use Twitter and Facebook to build a narrative around an event. You can also include YouTube videos, Google News posts, photos from Flickr, and your own personal text to tell your story.

Proust (http://www.proust.com/) helps you get to know your friends better by making it easy to ask and answer questions. It's a private network, so it's great for more personal reminiscences! We find that this format is also one of the best ways to keep the conversation going over time, in case you're worried about staying in touch.

Animoto (http://animoto.com/) is a great way to make beautiful slide shows from your favorite music and photos. Their unique algorithm matches your music to the speed of the photo slides, while you can choose the background, effects and transitions.

Keepsy (http://www.keepsy.com/) lets you collaborate with friends or family to create printed photo albums. They can be customized for your preferred layout and theme (grads might like "Yearbook") and can even include your Instagram (http://instagr.am) photos!

Did we miss a site you love? Let us know in the comments - maybe we'll feature it in an upcoming edition of Netted by the Webbys!
