It is a common belief these days that digital scrapbooking can be a good method to find out about missing people, as it hasn’t been used before the breakthrough of social media and the worldwide connection of the internet. But for those who are dummies in that field, what is scrapbooking? As referred in Wikipedia, scrapbooking is the way to preserve the most valuable and important personal moments and the family history of a person and all these closed and preserved in a nice scrapbook. There is a tendency these days about that and if you are artsy and a little bit talented you can create small miracles with your hands. You can typically include memorabilia like photographs, artwork and printed media. Scrapbook albums are usually decorated and contain extensive journaling and photos.
Digital scrapbooking is the development and the way that scrapbooks keep up to modern lifestyle. With the progress of technology and the HD pictures and scanners, the editing and layout programs as well as the great variety of printing, it is somehow easy to create some layouts that look professional in digital form and self-publish your work online. Moreover, the digital scrapbooking is not just limited to digital storage and display as there are layouts that can be stored in scrapbook albums or professionally print your work in hard “books”.
Digital scrapbooks can also be useful in finding people that are missing. An online scrapbook page is an online one – page album and memorabilia of someone or some people we love, of our family or our friends. If somebody is missing, a reminder like that is the best way to show to people who was the person that has gone missing. In that way you can show the person not as a picture, nor like a single and simple photo with some details, but the person like a person. You can touch the sensitivity of people who use the internet and let more and more people know about the person who is missing.
You can also have great advantages from the options that a digital advertisement gives you in designing and materials. If you want, you can make a scrapbook page with any kind of graphics or material you want, as well as add text and information that are essential to find the person missing. You can create some advertisements in bold colors and contrasting patterns and letters, plus add as many images as you want. In that way, it can be used in any possible direction: through the internet, by sharing it online to friends, social media sites, as well as printed in the town center in basic and important positions. You can make a great advertisement that catches the attention and the person missing has more chances to be found soon and alive, rather than later…
That’s how a huge number of individuals will be aware and informed for the characteristics, the personal data/information, etc of the person missing, increasing the chances to be found easily.
