FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

How do I get all my stuff together?

StorySpot gives you the power to build a multimedia story, but that means you've got to know how to bring in photos, audios, videos, stories, links, etc. How long this takes depends on how organized you are and on whether you are building by yourself or with the help of others. If you're like me, you've got stuff all over the place, on your phone, in a desk drawer, on multiple computers, or at your aunt Mabel's house.

Do not fear! You can get all the items you need to build a StorySpot together surprisingly easy:
1. Create a folder on your computer called StorySpot.
2. Search your computer for all photos (how? )

What is StorySpot?

StorySpot is an easy to use app website that helps you tell a multimedia story about someone you love or respect, living or lost. Use StorySpot to say “I love you” to mom or dad, or both! Use StorySpot to weave pictures, video, music, and stories together in a way that honors a couple reaching their 50th anniversary, a graduate, or your favorite teacher, veteran or perhaps to mark the career milestones of someone entering retirement. With StorySpot, anyone can create a permanent, digital tribute that tells the story of a life.

Why create a StorySpot?

Traditionally, we mark special occasions with flowers, chocolates, gifts, or a fancy meal. StorySpot gives you the power to give a multimedia digital tribute, crafted by you, to that special person in your life. What better way to show your love and admiration than by telling their story - in words, pictures, video, and music? Make it extra meaningful by sharing it with other friends and family members or by making it a permanent digital tribute for future generations.

Can I add new features and content?

Yes! You can share a story you’ve created and continue to add pictures, video, songs and whatever you like, whenever you like.

How Does StorySpot Protect My Privacy?

You and only you choose who can access the story you create and who can add elements. We never share your data or your story without your permission and are compliant with the latest privacy regulations as well as best practices. Read more about our Privacy Policy here.

How long will my legacy StorySpot be active?

As long as you like! Once you build it, it is surprisingly inexpensive to keep it up due to the decreasing cost of data. We envision a future where everyone’s StorySpot can live in cyberspace eternally, probably at no cost eventually. The site you build can be removed whenever you or a designated curator curator asks to take it off or if it violates our Terms of Use. In any case, you can print your tribute as a PDF and treasure it forever.

What is a curator?

The person building and paying for the StorySpot is the curator and controls what is posted. The curator may designate co-creators whose content the curator approves. The curator can also designate a co-curator.

How can visitors access my StorySpot website?

Once you’ve completed your StorySpot, you can easily share it via a unique URL link, Facebook, Twitter, or LinkedIn. You choose who gets to see it.
