The Autolog is a social network within the world of Need for Speed. Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit is the first game in the series to feature Autolog, and the upcoming Need for Speed: Shift 2 Unleashed is set to feature it as well.
 Features of Autolog
Here are some of the features within the Autolog.
The wall acts as a message board allowing the players to communicate with each other, share photos and other things from within the game. It allows players to see how their friends are doing, what races they've done. When gameplay objects are placed on the wall, it allows others to go straight into the event from the wall.
