Footnote.com Launches Application on Facebook® Platform To Help Friends remember friends
I REMEMBER Uses The Fourth-Most Trafficked Website in the United States To Bring Memories Together Like Never Before
May 5, 2009 – Lindon, Utah – Footnote.com today announced the launch of I Remember, a Facebook application aimed at helping connect Facebook users in order to share memories of loved ones. Few events in life generate the emotions and memories as does the passing of a friend, family member or colleague. However, without the appropriate tools and forum to preserve and share these memories, a loved one’s legacy may be lost. Now with I Remember, Facebook users can create a meaningful experience to honor those individuals that had an impact on their lives.
“A big challenge with gathering memories and stories together is getting everyone to contribute and share in one place,” explains Russell Wilding, CEO of Footnote.com. “Facebook helps eliminate that barrier by bringing millions of people together on a daily basis. The I Remember application simply leverages Facebook’s successful platform so friends and family can participate in remembering people that meant the most to them.”
Using I Remember, Facebook users can share stories, upload photos, post comments and add facts about an individual. These facts will automatically generate a timeline of the individual’s life and a map detailing important places and events. Further, shared information will undoubtedly spark more memories. Soon a robust page can be created through the simple efforts of a few people coming together. For an example of an I Remember page, click here.
In addition, contributions using I Remember on Facebook will also be accessible on Footnote.com, a premier history website. From the I Remember pages on Facebook, users can easily tap into the over 53 million historical documents found on Footnote.com to discover additional information about those people they are remembering.
