As parents, we were worried. Worried about how our kids, in the future, were going to access the 100,000+ photos we’ve taken of them. Worried about how and where they’d be able to relive their childhood memories. On Dropbox? In our old Facebook feeds? On a backup drive that’s stored who knows where?
Don’t you want to preserve your family memories?
We talked to our friends and it turns out, they were worried too.
And then we talked the masses.
Turns out…they don’t.
The majority of parents surveyed are taking too many photos, storing them in too many places, and overwhelmed about how their kids are going to access their childhood memories in the future.
75% of parents save their photos and videos in multiple places.
62% say technology makes it easier to take photos/videos, but harder to access them in the future.
64% say they wish they took the time to write down information about each photo/video so they could remember the moment more.
50% say they’re overwhelmed by the thought of organizing all of their photos and videos.
33% are worried their children will not be be able to see their photos/videos in the future because they’re saved in so many places.
We weren’t surprised, but we were inspired.
Inspired to keep making Keepy the best platform for families to save and share their memories. Inspired to work harder than ever to create new features like allowing users to upload memories from any source (Dropbox, Facebook) and enabling them to upload more types of memories (Videos, PDFs). Inspired to continue to evolve and create a superior product for families so in 5, 10, or 20 years, kids around the world can easily access the story of their lives.
*We surveyed 264 parents with children under 10 who share photos and videos with family/friends
