FamilyApp Tips: Use FamilyApp as a Photo Sharing Log

In the age of social media, do you really know who has access to the content you post? That's why FamilyApp's secure messenger is the perfect way to share photos with only the people you choose. No catch. Take back your privacy and make sure you know exactly who has access to your content. One way to use FamilyApp's secure messenger is as a photo sharing log. Whether you're going on a family vacation, sharing updates on your house's renovation, or sharing photos of your brand new baby, create a group and log all your favorite memories and moments along the way!

First, Create a New Topic-based Chat:

When you open FamilyApp, you'll notice two separate indicators towards the bottom of the screen: "Chat" and "Contact." Tapping the "Chat" indicator will take you to a list of your active chats. Tapping the "Contact" indicator will show you any Families and Groups with whom you are currently involved.

Under the "Chat" indicator, you can scroll through a list of your currently active chats. This will include chats within Families, Groups, and other topic-based chats.

Topic-Based Chats to suit any specific genre of content– birthdays, carpooling, road trips and more. These chats can include family members, friends, and anyone else using FamilyApp. To create a new Topic-Based Chat, tap the chat-bubble icon in the upper-righthand corner of the Chat page. Doing so will bring you to your contact list, where you can select as many of your contacts as desired. After selecting chat members, hit "next."

You'll notice the names of every chat member selected on the previous screen. Tapping these names will bring you to your chat's info page, where you will have the option to change the name, image, and membership of the chat. Give your chat whichever name you'd like (i.e. birthdays, carpooling, road trip etc.) and you're all set!

How Do I See the Photo Log?

To see the photos and videos collected in one place, first select the group you wish to use as your photo log. Select a picture or photo, and in the upper right hand corner, you'll see the word, "Media." Select this, and you'll see all the media that has been shared within the group. You'll automatically be directed to images, but select "video" in the upper right to see any videos shared with the group.
