Today, we’re excited that Facebook Timeline gives us the opportunity to help America recapture and share its history at a very personal level.

GoPhoto’s business is to help people preserve and share their memories by scanning photos, slides and negatives. Today's announcement of Facebook Timeline highlighted the fast-growing conundrum that spurred GoPhoto founders to start the company in the first place: while millions of people enjoy sharing their photos online, the vast majority of their photographic histories are sitting in a box somewhere collecting dust.
Let's face it: photo scanning is time consuming, and sorting through long-neglected albums of old photos, discarded slide carousels and envelopes full of mysterious negatives isn't the way most people want to spend a weekend. GoPhoto offers a quick, easy solution to the often overwhelming burden of image scanning: just print a shipping label at GoPhoto.com, toss everything in a box (or slap a label on the box they're already in), and ship them. There is no need to sort beforehand; white glove service means that GoPhoto expert technicians will carefully remove assets from their containers – albums, slide carousels, envelopes – and will put them back as they were.
Once images are scanned, GoPhoto sets them up in free online albums with 1-click Facebook and social network share. And, because GoPhoto allows customers to delete as many scans as they want and only pay for the scans they keep, converting slides, negatives and photos to digital is a no-risk proposition.
Said CEO Sean Ryan, “We have known for a long time that people want to share their memories with each other online, and we’ve made it our business to remove the barriers to doing so. Today, we’re excited that Facebook Timeline gives us the opportunity to help America recapture and share its history at a very personal level.”
Which is to say that filling out that Facebook Timeline is as easy as slapping a mailing label on that box of slides sitting in the closet.
Based in San Francisco, CA, GoPhoto is the leader in image scanning services offering the highest quality photo, negative and slide scanning to consumers, professional photographers and businesses looking to archive and preserve their images to online albums and DVD.
