LegacyBuilder Releases New Rapid Sync

Desktop uploader extends automatic media management and storytelling capabilities of intuitive multimedia platform for families

DALLAS, March 7, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- LegacyBuilder.com, a private web platform that allows families to make the most of their media and time, today announced the launch of Rapid Sync. Rapid Sync allows LegacyBuilder users to sync photos and videos from their computer with the click of a button. Once media is added to a user's account, LegacyBuilder automatically organizes it into a series of events on a private, interactive family timeline based on the information in the photos and the responses to questions users answer within the site.

LegacyBuilder President Clint Lee believes that with the growth of the digital age, parents now have a new dilemma: how to manage the sheer volume of digital media generated and extract meaningful memories without investing a lot of time and effort. And while many people default to social media for sharing ­- 53% of social media users posted original photos in 2013; 23% posted videos ­- the immediate and fleeting nature of platforms like Facebook and Instagram doesn't lend itself to recording memories in a narrative or easily accessible way. Anyone who has tried to scroll through five years of Facebook posts quickly discovers this.

That's where LegacyBuidler comes in. It syncs all of a user's photos and organizes them in one place, then takes all of the "now" moments from their favorite social sites and sifts out the profound ones. They turn these moments into events on a private timeline to be shared with family and close connections. In this way, LegacyBuilder becomes an on-the-go storyteller, and families have a place to save their stories for future generations.

"We want to put your digital media to work for you," Lee said. "LegacyBuilder takes media management to the next level by giving it a purpose ­- to tell your story and your family's story in a compelling and user-friendly way."

Rapid Sync works by syncing any folder on a PC with the user's LegacyBuilder library. Any new photos added to that folder are uploaded to LegacyBuilder the next time they connect to the internet. As media is added to the library, it is automatically organized into events on an interactive timeline based on the metadata in the photos and the user's answers to questions within the platform. When they next login to LegacyBuilder, they're able to review any new events created from the media.

This process creates a series of mini digital photo albums, which turn user media into a story of their and their children's lives. As new events are created on a user's timeline, any family and other connections receive notices via email or within the platform to view the new events.
