Millions Get Nostalgic With Photos Every Thursday During #TBT

How to Scan Photos For Posting on #TBT


A sizzling hot trend in social media happens every Thursday. From celebrity baby photos to average social networking fans sharing yesteryear family celebrations, millions of people are having fun and getting nostalgic by sharing their decades of rediscovered legacy photo snapshots during ‘Throwback Thursday’ [“#TBT”].


TTBT Ruleshe popular photo-scanning apps, like Snapchat, Facebook, Instagram, and of course, Twitter are the ideal source for sharing these decades-past photos.  Just remember to tag each picture with the #TBT hashtag to get noticed.


Even businesses are adopting this online sensation by sharing long forgotten photo flashbacks when their companies were just starting out. Casinos in Las Vegas are a fun example to view legendary buildings of yesteryear and famous luminaries on immense vintage marquee signs which are no longer with us.



“Posting old pictures from your childhood to 1980’s-style fashions on leading social media platforms is easy, just include the “TBT” Hashtag. The challenging part is how to get thousands of analog pictures and 35mm slides digitized?  This is where ScanMyPhotos.com plays an integral role. Nearly 63% of all our photo digitization orders worldwide are linked to people participating in ‘Throwback Thursday,’” said Mitch Goldstone, president & CEO, ScanMyPhotos.com.


“The photo digitization service has scanned more than 300 million pictures and is a primary content provider for the hyper-popular #TBT trend.  Without ScanMyPhotos,” said Goldstone, “most shared pictures would be relegated to just recent digital photos from smartphones.”


“There is an urgency to digitize analog photos to preserve all those breathtaking pop culture and family memories. The number one new reason is ‘Throwback Thursday,’” according to Goldstone

Save 50%* to Professionally Digitize Your Lifetime of Pictures

How to Memorialize Ten Years Since The New York Times’ Profile on ScanMyPhotos?


Save 50%* to Professionally Digitize Your Lifetime of Pictures Due to The New York Times’ Photo Scanning Review.



Why ScanMyPhotos.com designed this unique 50% discount* to scan your pictures: Ten years ago David Pogue wrote “Your Photos, Off the Shelf at Last” in The New York Times (August 14, 2008) and helped put the world of bulk photo scanning on the map.


While commemorating the tenth anniversary is traditionally celebrated with gifts of tin or aluminum, we are breaking with tradition. A metal alloy just doesn’t make sense for what happened on August 14, 2008, when the nation’s most admired tech columnist, David Pogue put us on the map. Back then, the personal-technology columnist profiled ScanMyPhotos.com for his popular New York Times “State of the Art” column to identify the urgency to digitize pictures. Subsequently, it led to last month’s milestone as we digitizing our 600 millionth picture.


Background on David Pogue: the same year (1985) our CEO, Mitch Goldstone graduated from the University of Southern California’s School of Business and Entrepreneurship Program, Mr. Pogue graduated summa cum laude from Yale, with distinction in Music. His next ten years conducting and arranging Broadway musicals lead to winning four Emmy awards, two Webby awards, a Loeb award for journalism, and an honorary doctorate in music. His resume is legendary. This 2015 example of his songwriting, singing and dancing in “CES The Musical,” is among our favorites.


Beyond his role as tech critic for Yahoo Finance, you can read David’s monthly columns in Scientific American and watch his science shows on PBS’s “NOVA.”  He’s been a correspondent for “CBS Sunday Morning” since 2002. And, spoiler alert, he is also the brains behind the Techno Claus beard. As a best selling author, we would need a supercomputer to tally all the tech tomes he’s written which are available at Amazon of which he’s sold more than 3 million copies.


Much has changed since that article. Last year, one billion pictures were destroyed by flooding in Texas. The advent of photo-sharing and storage apps created a safe home to preserve those pictures. The smartphone happened, yet missing were all those photo albums and shoeboxes of analog pictures not yet digitized. There are still about 3 1/2 trillion analog snapshots to digitize.



Better than cake, to help celebrate this ten year anniversary, ScanMyPhotos.com created a unique 50% discount towards our most popular photo scanning service.


To instantly save 50%* on fill-the-box photo scanning, with free delivery and same day scanning, enter “POGUE10” as the promo code at checkout. Under “special instructions” at checkout, type “free same day scanning,” and your order will be digitized and prepared for return the same day it is received.


Many popular add-on featured services are also available at our regular, already low prices to enhance your experience.
