One of the best things about the internet is the power that it has to bring people together. Not only have services such as email and social media allowed friends and families to stay in touch, but they’ve also helped simplify the exchange of photos, videos and other memorabilia, both from the distant past and the immediate present.
While photo services such as Flickr, Instagram and Picasa have made it easy for families to stay in touch with all the latest happenings, they also create a unique problem: there are too many different competing services! Storing all of the photos you want to keep in a single place can quickly become a bit of a headache, but we’ve discovered a great way to let you create your own family photo albums by picking photos from all the different photo services and keeping them in a single place.
If you’re comfortable using the internet, you might have heard about Pinterest. Pinterest specializes in collecting photos from various places around the web and keeping them together in a single album, known as a ‘board’. After creating a ‘board’, you can start ‘pinning’ photos to it from any website on the internet – and you can create as many boards as you like.
This has a number of uses, but now that Pinterest has added a private board option, it has rapidly become our favorite option for collecting family memories from around the world. It allows you to quickly and easily keep track of all the family memorabilia that keep us close together, making lost photos a thing of the past. Pinterest has also recently added support for videos, so you’ll never miss your favorite wedding clips, your young nephew’s first steps, or your grandparent’s movies!
Getting started on Pinterest is easy: simply visit www.pinterest.com to sign up for an account, create a ‘secret board’, and start pinning your family photos and videos to it. It’s very easy to learn to do, and within no time, you’ll be building a family multimedia album that will last for year to come. There’s no limit to how many photos and videos they can contain, and you can invite anyone to your secret board you choose! Don’t let distance come between you and your family memories – they’re too precious to lose.
