Are YOU on Flipagram?

Yep, I know, I know, yet ANOTHER social media platform!!!

I first learned about Flipagram from my niece who just returned from Hawaii  where she and her husband celebrated their 10th wedding anniversary.

Instead of posting 50 photos on Facebook, she created a Flipagram!

Of course, once I saw it, I had to check out the site.

How to use Flipagram:

I have to tell you, I just made my first video and I was amazed that it wasn't difficult at all! I am not the most technologically savvy person in the world, but if I could make a video, you can too!

I tried copying the embed code for my first Flipagram and it didn't work but click here and you will see it! Not bad for a first time effort, once I play around with it more, I think it will be fun! I just wish they had embed codes that actually WORK on blogs, I tried numerous times and couldn't get it to post here, but it's all good!

If you are on Instagram, Flipagram is just a natural progression! Have fun!!!

  1. I LOVE your video, Caren! I've never heard of Flipagram but I will definitely be checking it out. I want to make some Truffles memorial videos.

    1. I had never heard of it either til a few days ago. I won't use it as much as Instagram, (probably), but it is great for times when you have a ton of photos for one specific event/occasion, or just for sharing multiple photos in a fun way. Thanks so much! Some of those photos are old but a few are new ones!

  3. We haven't even heard of that! We're not on Instagram yet so we're WAY behind the times!

    1. I hear ya! I joined Instagram kicking and screaming lol. I don't have time for all of the social media that is out there! I have been better about posting to Instagram. I try to post one photo once a day, and I try to respond to comments there and browse about once a day. I was good about that til the past two days. Haven't looked at the photos of others for a few days but hope to get there later today!

  4. It was a very impressive and entertaining show. Picking the photos looks like the only hard part.

    1. yes, if you have a lot of photos it is hard to pick and choose. I was just playing and wanted to see if my feeble mind could figure out how to work it. The only part I don't like (because I don't download music other than for alerts on my phone,) is that you have to download and pay for the music you use. They do have some free music but unless your video is super short (around 30 seconds-ish), it won't work. Also, not all of their music is appropriate for all photos.

  5. That is a great video. I would love to try to do that. What fun with all the cats that I have here. I probaby can do the pictures but the music I don't know how to find. Anyway, good job Cody, Dakota and Caren.

    1. Thanks Marg!! If you have a smart phone, I believe it works for iPhones and Androids. You go to where your music thing is on the phone....actually, you can access music directly from Flipagram. Thank you! xoxo

  6. It's pretty neat, Caren. I love that you have pics of both Cody and Dakota. :-)

    Have to say, though, that I'm quite content to be out of the social media loop and not doing any of these things. LOL I'm not quite a luddite, but I suppose I'm close, by today's standards. Ha.

    1. Thank you!!!! I hear you, believe me I do. I often dread finding something new because then I feel there is this compulsion that I MUST join it. I hate feeling like that, and I put it on myself. I join a ton of things though and then end up being "active" in few. I'm a great "joiner!" lol

  11. My social media is very limited (who has time for all these things), but that does look cool. At least now I will know what the girls I work with are talking about!

  12. That looks very cool. My human is SO behind! No smartphone, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram - just my blog. I think she belongs in a very different era. Srsly.

  15. Love your movie! I’ve actually had it bookmarked for over a year but never tried it. I like Magisto and Animoto for making pics into movies. They have fun effects.

    1. Thanks! I think it came out in 2014....don't think it was out before then but I am not sure.

  16. Well, um...we are not on FB, Pinterest, instagram, Twitter, etc...so...well, we guess that means Meowmy won't be on that either, OMC!! Well, it does look like a great way to make albums and then have others see them like a slide show.

    Thanks fur telling us about it, now we have another reason to guffaw at the non techie that meowmy is, MOL!!

  20. Wow, Caren! I am so impressed. I am actually going to get to posting one of these months and I am finally unsubscribing to many how to's because I don't understand much of anything except writing. That means I can clean up a ton of To Do's. I have to tell you, if it was not for you in particular sharing the information, I would probably just bookmark it and then forget about it. Thank you so much!
