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” Hash tag. 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.”
