Seniors and the Future of Social Media

Font Size » Large | Small

New evolutions of social media programs are trending towards micro-sharing.  The popular app Vine allows users to share just a few seconds of video and Snapchat only temporarily displays pictures or text.  In the face of this new state of impermanence comes My Wisdom Link, which provides a way to preserve important family documents, share stories, and record your family history for future generations.

While we may not all end up with an official biographer to record the important events in our lives, we all have a story to tell.  My Wisdom Link not only provides you with the tools to privately and securely record and share your experiences, it also includes weekly “Story Starters” to help you stay inspired.  The interface also allows you to organize and categorize an unlimited amount of documents, photos, and videos.


Perhaps that best part about this service is that it allows you to interact with far-flung family members and instantly share information with a chosen list of “connections.”  You don’t have to worry about lost or damaged mementoes or making copies for multiple people.  Everyone can have equal access and your friends and family can participate by commenting on your profile and adding their own memories to create a more complete picture of treasured family stories and important events.

If you have shied away from social media this long, don’t worry, My Wisdom Link has a user friendly interface that is intuitive and easy to navigate.  Unlike other sites, you don’t have to worry about privacy settings or accidentally sharing information with the wrong group.  Once you create a basic profile, adding existing documents just requires a quick upload and new documents will be saved forever by simply posting.

Other features include private messaging capabilities, secure servers, and a 30-day free trial.  Once you check out their site, be sure to share your thoughts.  What do you think of the idea behind the service?  Is it something you would use or give as a gift?
