HONOLULU, May 23, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- JamBios today announced the launch of a new social platform designed to help people remember and share their favorite memories with friends and family. The web platform provides a place to write about the past and enable others to contribute memories of those shared past experiences.
JamBios addresses the challenges consumers face with current social media platforms, where meaningful posts disappear and are hard to retrieve after time has passed. The platform provides a refreshing alternative to the superficial daily posts, such as selfies and food photos, and stressful politically charged content that currently dominate most social feeds.
Using a literary-style structure, JamBios offers Chapters and Sections designed to enable users to enjoy reminiscing with themselves and others about anything from their first car to their first kiss. The JamBios platform includes:
- Over 100 Chapter topics to choose from including Pets, Houses, Summers, Dreams, Family Dysfunctions, Love Crushes, Greatest Challenges, Recipes and more;
- The ability to illustrate stories with photos and other images;
- An easy method to invite contributors who participated in the memories to add their stories; and
- "Monty," a digital biographer that asks memory prodding questions for each Chapter type.
Unlike other Social Media platforms, JamBios is private by default. Users choose which Chapters and Sections to open to differing audiences based on whom they would like to share and contribute to their memories.
JamBios was co-founded by Beth N. Carvin, a technology executive with nearly two decades as CEO in the enterprise software space. Carvin was inspired by stories about her great grandfather's bar in Boston that were being shared with family via a group email.
"My siblings, cousins and I were on the edge of our seats waiting for the next installment about the barmaids, stolen slot machine and tubs of illegal whiskey, but email wasn't the greatest medium for these memories," said Carvin. "Shortly thereafter I was on Wikipedia and thought to myself, 'why can't we all have a biography to which our friends and family can contribute, even if we aren't famous?' and the idea for JamBios was born."
JamBios is free to use and available immediately. It will be supported by the purchase of JamBios hard copy books for gifts and memory preservation, premium features and corporate JamBios sponsorships to help nostalgic brands connect with consumers through brand memories.
Actor Henry Ian Cusick, star of LOST and The 100 is JamBios' spokesperson and voice of "Monty." He gained interest in JamBios after filming, Rememory, a movie about an inventor who developed a machine that records memories. Cusick, a resident of Hawaii for over 10 years, will help the company promote JamBios worldwide.
