New Feature: Share Your Account With A Partner

Invite Partner

Have one special person in your life you want to share an Arkiver account with?  Now you can!

Adding a partner to your Arkiver account allows them to view, add, edit and share memories on the same account. This feature is particularly great for parents who want to both participate in collecting, editing and sharing their kids’ memories.

Inviting someone to be your Arkiver account partner is a breeze and should make adding memories that you two make together a lot easier!

To get you started we’ve put together some simple step-by-step instructions on Arkiver Support.

Happy Arkiving!

 

Storytelling for the Modern Family

Since the development of language, people have shared stories. Our prehistoric ancestors used stories to bond, teach, and entertain and today we continue to use stories for these same reasons. Not much has changed. Or has it?

 

While the power of stories to move us has remained constant, the main source of these stories has changed. Family stories have been replaced by those created by distant organizations, served up to us conveniently on our ever-present electronic devices. The fading presence of family in the narratives that inform our behavior is costing us dearly. It is time to bring family storytelling back.

Why Do We Love To Collect Stuff?

You name it, people collect it. Everything from baseball cards and bento boxes to Mickey Mouse watches, mugs and momentos.

So why do we love to collect stuff?

We collect things that we think are meaningful and give us value beyond their basic functionality…

New Feature: Share From Arkiver To Facebook

Shared FB CollectionArkiver is excited to announce the new share to Facebook feature!

In addition to sharing moments and collections privately through Arkiver, you can now easily post them to Facebook.

This new feature is great for posting vacation pics when you don’t want to be “that person” posting all 53 pictures of your relaxing island vacation but you want to post the best five on Facebook just to make your friends at least a teeny bit jealous!
If you’re sharing a Moment you can edit the description before posting and if you’re sharing a Collection you can edit descriptions and the album title and also remove moments you don’t want to post.  Arkiver can now be your hub for memory curation where you can choose which memories to keep private, which to share privately and now which to share on Facebook.

We’ve made sharing to Facebook super simple but for more info check out the step-by-step instructions we’ve posted on our support site.

Happy Facebook Sharing!
