Do you ever wonder if you can share your memories and photos down the line with generations to come? I, for one, keep baby books and photo albums online on a regular basis. However, sometimes I go to reach for that one picture that I was supposed to print out and I forgot to do it. Off I go to the computer only to realize I deleted it upon “printing it out.” No way to retrieve my picture and show it to my daughter since I deleted it? How about those specific memories that you write down on paper, only to lose the paper? No way to relive these memories?
Well, now there is a way. An amazing company developed a site called LiveOn. LiveOn is a photo and memory storage site that can capture and celebrate the lives around you for many years to come. The photos and memories can be stored so they can stem across generations. Basically, you gather up your past and you can use them in the future. This memory preservation system sounds neat but I am sure you are asking how it can possibly work?
When you first enter LiveOn, you are guided to a page where you can take a video tour of the site as well as a sign up page. I took the informative tour first, and then I proceeded to sign in. Across the top of the screen you will see icons for all the features of LiveOn, including building my tribe, adding memories, questions asked for you, and create a time capsule. I will go through each of these with you.
When you start out, you will start by building a tribe . LiveOn recommends only using close friends and family when selecting people. They will have access to all your memories and photos that you decide to store on the site. The next icon is adding memory. You will add a memory via photo that you have already taken or a new photo. You will simply upload the photo or if you have it stored into one of your Facebook albums, LiveOn will have Facebook access to upload straight from the site. Once uploaded you can add voice tags, text sliders, music, webcam videos. All members of your tribe can view your pictures. Under each icon, there is a video to show you how to do it as well as a “cheat sheet.” When you click on the “cheat sheet” it will give you easy instructions how to go about doing each step.
The next icon asks questions of you. They have questions in just about every facet of one’s life. You can choose to answer them. For example, one of the questions that was asked is, “What was your favorite year in school?” By answering this question as well as the vast array of other questions, your tribe will be able to see the answer. However, this feature is very unique because future generations can also see all these answers. Wouldn’t be neat to see what my great grandmother answered when she was a little girl?
My favorite feature of this site is creating a time capsule. What the time capsule does is cherish every moment that can be used for inspiration in the future. Perhaps, you want to wish your daughter some motherly advice in the future? Or perhaps you want to record life lessons for your son for the future. You simply write it down and LiveOn will deliver these milestones on the specific day they occur. If you want to wish someone a Happy Birthday but are afraid you will forget, you can schedule the time capsule to do this. It is very similar to creating a memory, only now your memories can be added with your photos. As I mentioned before, they give you a “cheat sheet” below all the icons to tell you more about each step. I can’t wait to use the time capsule, to write down some information, that will be able to be received by my daughter in the years to come.
LiveOn is a brand new site and I think the concept is fabulous! I love being able to save my memories/photos/videos for years to come. I love the concept of being able to span generation to generation. The best part is it is free. Be sure to check out LiveOn for more information. Have fun creating your memories!
