BC: That is OurStory.com!!
FC: OurStory.com | An online application to create professional timelines.
1: OurStory.com is a free online application that allows you to make timelines that you can organize in many different ways and add pictures to. You first make a profile to get started. You add events to your timeline by adding different "stories". You put in the title, the date, information on the event, video, and up to 6 pictures, and when you hit save, it ends up on your timeline.
2: You can only make one timeline at a time, and when you want to make a new one and replace the old one, you just delete everything from your old timeline. When you write a new "story", it goes into the already existing timeline, aka the only one you can do.
3: When editing your timeline, you can make the events appear by decade, year, month, or day. This is usefull if you have many events or very few, because if you have a ton, you can set your timeline on day or month and they won't be cluttered. But if you only have a few events a year, you can set it to year so that you don't have to scroll through months and days to get to your event.
4: Some of the neat features of this application are that there is a button called "Quick Add", and when you click on this, you get an option of animated pictures that you can put in your timeline and pair with information. When typing information for each of your events, there is no limit to how much you can type. This is because when you're viewing your timeline, you can click on an event and it will bring you to a separate page that has all your information on it.
5: When you're done with your timeline and want to present it, you can view it in a way that makes all the information go by in slideshow. If you want to look at one certain event more closely, you just click on it.
6: ( Text Here ) | On OurStory.com, you can find friends and family that have an account. That way, you can share your timelines and they can comment on them. | You can view your timeline online only if you wish, but you can also save it to a disk, print it in a book, or email it.
7: If you want to upgrade to the premium feature, the cost is $49.95 a year and some of the features are: colored text, have spell check, you can make more than one timeline at a time, and you can be in "circles" where you are connected to other people so you can share timelines easier. | They make money by a few adds, and also by people using the premium feature.
