Nice progress! Keep going to keep up ;) or maybe set a bit lower weekly goals..time flies and there always something that goes wrong/slowet then expected.
Good question.. everyone shares pictures somewhere else..the most favourite is now google drive (zasilkovna or rajce as czech rep. specific ones) to share, to show is Instagram and Facebook..

Instant messaging if I want anyone in particular, them to see a specific photo.
Facebook and Twitter if I am sharing a photo with everybody.

I don't have any need to share no-ephemeral photos.

Sorry, I don't see the point of your product.

But you don't need to make a product that everybody like and use, just by enough people.

So don't mind me, and keep pushing because your active users prove you are right. · 62d ago

Solid idea for a service. I usually keep all my photos on iCloud. and share them using various messaging apps. But I remember some time ago I was looking for a similar app, to see my photos grouped by years and persons, and maybe places. So as I said the idea is solid. Maybe in future, you can also create a map, to get a view of where the photos we're taken around the globe. God luck! · 62d ago

Hey, good job! To be honest I'm a Google Photos user and use all their built-in services to share memories. It does a great job of automatically uploading and pulling everything together that I don't need to think about it. With regard to your update, I'll like to read _why_ you are doing these things rather than only just what you did. Outcomes vs Outputs and all that Good luck! · 62d ago

[Transcribed audio]: Hi, good idea and a good one liner and website. Maybe you can have a one liner with simple words. So everyone can understand your product immediately. You can say that you organize photos for people based on their life journey in experiences or something like that and and have you already launched. If not, then have the launch date as a KPI. So you can keep making steady progress. Also, the way I share photos is based on the memory and events, and it also depends upon how close I am with the person I want to share photos with. I think your KPI deadline has passed. So maybe updated. Good luck. Thank you.
