A new poll asking why people have their snapshots digitized was just released by ScanMyPhotos.com. Divorce topped the list.
It turns out the only thing easy and inexpensive about divorce is who gets the pictures. At one cent each, scanning all means that everyone can claim it.
Why people digitize their analog photos is not always a pretty picture. According to a revised study released today by ScanMyPhotos.com, lamentable events in people’s life tops the list of ten leading reasons why people are choosing to have their decades of family memories scanned.
“After an earlier poll of customers, we just asked again. The new results maintained and mirrored those earlier ranking. The poll was motivated by wondering why people digitally archive their generations of family pictures that were previously stored in shoeboxes,” explained Mitch Goldstone, CEO at ScanMyPhotos.
According to ScanMyPhotos, topping the list of ten primary reasons why people want to scan pictures was divorce. “It turns out that the most common reason for scanning pictures is due to divorce and seeking to easily split up photos,” explained Goldstone. ScanMyPhotos digitally “marries” pictures to digital media before a divorce takes it away. And, according to Goldstone, “the only thing easy and inexpensive about divorce is deciding who gets the photos; especially at the new way to have photos preserved for one cent each.”
Divorce, followed by funerals and anxieties over fading photos topped the list, according to Goldstone. 125 people who had their pictures digitized were interviewed in June 2019 and asking why they had their pictures digitally preserved.
