Online Yearbooks

Online yearbooks are a relatively new phenomenon.  With more and more information available online, students are starting to turn to the internet as the primary place to house and browse their memories.  Social networking sites especially have made the printed yearbook seem formal and nearly obsolete.  Once a cultural staple and tradition for the end of the academic calendar year, the yearbook provided students with portraits, candids, and neatly bound evidence of their academic, social, and athletic history.  However, printing the heavy bound annuals is costly and rarely brings in a profit to the school.  Some schools had the foresight to create online yearbooks, which are good for the school’s wallet and great for the web-savvy alumni. 

Online yearbooks contain the same information as regular yearbooks, except all of the information is stored digitally and can only be viewed online.  There are a host of benefits to using online yearbooks.  The first is the cost, which is much less than the printed versions.  The second is the adaptability; publishing information online is easy and any mistakes can quickly be corrected.  Publishers have tapped into the new online yearbooks market by creating software with online yearbook layouts, designs, and publishing programs.  What’s more, alumni don’t need to worry about losing their yearbooks after a flood, fire, or move across town.  And, for those who are nostalgic for signatures, online yearbooks can readily accommodate a wall for signatures from friends, faculty, and classmates.
