“I know our school takes a bunch of photos for yearbook and use maybe like 12 of them, so the discards they could put up in a gallery or a preview or something.”

“I think it’s hard for yearbooks to go online, because people want to look back. The purpose of a yearbook is not for right now but for people to look back on their high school memories.”

“I think yearbooks have a harder time because yearbooks only come out once a year, newspapers come out maybe once a month so they always have something to post and the people who come online to see it will see the end result soon. Trying to do that with yearbook because you post it and they’re (the readers) are like ‘Yeah, it’s cool’ but don’t see it again until nine months later, so people forget about it and lose interest.”

“Our events happen once a year, we don’t want to use up all of our coverage for online, we want to save it for the end of the year when the book comes out.”
