NEW YORK (PRWEB) May 20, 2020
With the FC Yearbook app, masks are not required and social distancing is no problem for thousands of quarantined students who will sign each other’s yearbooks from afar this spring. Interest in the app has spiked dramatically as schools and yearbook committees choose the FC Yearbook digital platform for their hunkered down K-12 students.
Launched in 2015 by tech gurus Fanny and Robert Davidson, FC Yearbook originally was marketed to print yearbook companies as an add-on to their services. Now, FC Yearbook is a standalone interactive digital yearbook that is seeing a dramatic spike in interest from yearbook end users — schools, themselves — during the coronavirus pandemic.
The FC Yearbook app brings school yearbooks into the digital age and works with or without an existing print edition. Students on their mobile devices can interact one-to-one and sign, message, sticker and create videos in each other’s yearbooks. The patented and secure platform also offers strict privacy and parental controls.
FC Yearbook said it is producing digital yearbooks across the country, with new orders coming in daily. Interest has been especially strong in California and now in New York where Governor Andrew Cuomo recently announced that public schools would remain closed for the remainder of the year.
“Schools are delighted with having the yearbook on their phones and tablets and sharing personal memories with classmates,” Robert Davidson said. “If there is any bright spot in canceled classes and students (including our own 5th grader and 8-grader) studying alone at home, amidst a terrifying global pandemic, it’s that they still can connect with one another and close out their school year with a virtual yearbook signing day. We’re happy that the FC Yearbook platform is providing a fun and affordable way for schools and students to end a very unusual and difficult year on a happier note.”
Fanny Davidson added, “FC Yearbook has patented features that provide an interactive, digital experience that has particular resonance at this time. Your yearbook is a place where you should be able to share and store personal memories to last a lifetime. FC enables that. Previous industry efforts to add new technology to yearbooks overlooked the all-important personal, one-to-one notes, messages and signatures that can be the most precious memories of all.”
