Memory Mapping with YouMap

So, what is that you can do in terms of memory mapping with YouMap? Quite a few things. Let’s take a look at them in more detail on the list below!

  • Capturing memories – Usually, when there is something that you want to remember for a longer period of time, you take a photo of it. But what do you do next? You post it on Instagram, Facebook, or simply leave it in your gallery. After a few years, you might remember the photo more or less, but you barely recognize the situation, right? This is because there is not enough context. But if you post it in YouMap, along with the location’s name and some extra comments, you’ll be able to relieve your memory with as much detail as you wish, even a couple of years later.
  • Sharing memories – You can also share your memories and tell stories with maps. All you need for that is to embed your maps to your other social media, and voila – your friends and family can experience your vacation, trip, or even everyday struggles from your perspective. Highly detailed and visual stories are better, and by mapping your memories, you can turn your stories into true masterpieces.
  • Joining memories – You may also create an interactive memory map that you share with your friends to record your adventures together. It’s great as this lets you preserve your precious moments from different perspectives, with attention to different details. This, on the other hand, means that in the future you will be able to relive these memories and experience your trips once again fully!
