I’ve found it. I wasn’t sure at first, but now I’m positively sure I have found the PERFECT site to SAVE all my photos for generations to come. A few months ago I was introduced to Forever.com, a platform that let’s you save photos and documents to the cloud. I know what you’re thinking…big deal. That’s already out there. Well, yes, but.
You see, I had been using Dropbox, Shutterfly, Snapfish, Walgreens, SamsClub, and my computer Cloud backups to save all my digital photos. I would diligently upload my camera uploads to these various sites to hold my photos on their sites. Free, until I suddenly I had used up my space. Oh well, just a couple of bucks a month. I can handle that. Well, yes, but NO!
After learning about Forever.com, I have come to understand that all of my photos are NOT secure. They are on the site until…until the company decides they are no longer viable. You see, “they” have complete control of what happens to my photos or documents in the future. If the company changes ownership or becomes part of merger, my photos can be sold to third parties, and/or deleted. I have no say in what happens. You don’t believe me? Go ahead, READ the fine print in the agreements. It turns out that most of our photos that are put online are being data-mined to third party companies who use the information in our photos to suggestion market to us. Facebook is doing this every day with their algorithms. Oh, and did you know they COMPRESS your photo files into a low-res file? This is really sad for all my beautiful photos I uploaded to these sites thinking I would be able to print at full resolution any time in the future. Not so!
I’m not saying to stop all usage of these FREE sites, but wouldn’t it be nice to have a SECURE HOME for all your documents, photos and media? Go visit FOREVER and look around. Read the lifetime+100 year GUARANTEE. I am incredibly grateful that my friend shared this wonderful site with me.
Feel free to contact me if you have questions about how FOREVER is set up, it’s founder, and other features after visiting the site.

I hope you like what you see! I LOVE it! Oh, and just ONE site! I no longer have to wonder where I stored those photos from 2008.
