Most social networks or media sharing sites thrive on their unique offerings or exclusivity, but a new site called thisMoment hopes to bring together their disparate functions into a single portal.  thisMoment offers traditional ways of uploading photos or video to the site, but can also pull in material from other sites like Flickr, Facebook or YouTube.  The interface for thisMoment resembles a Flickr slide show with more options and the comment system is arranged to share emotions under an entry starting with “This moment made me feel…” as well as the usual space for snarky Internet one-line comments.  The content you organize through the site is grouped into related “moments” that are easily accessible in an interactive timeline called your “moment flow.”

While this site could simply be another attempt to take over market share of social networks, thisMoment stands out by encouraging users to use their media on other online platforms, even letting you pull images from related events with a media search engine called the Moment Maker.  The interesting implementation of a timeline gives a calming perspective to our digital lives, sharing a distant past or coming future rather than focusing on constant real-time updates.  The Wall Street Journal’s Mossberg Solution continues,

You can create moments for things that happen in the past, present or future, like an upcoming wedding or birth, and a timeline at the top of the Web site shows where these moments fit in, according to their dates. If you share a moment with someone who is labeled as being in that moment, she can “seize” the moment, adding it to her own timeline. ThisMoment also encourages you to rate your moments on a scale of small to big according to how much they matter to you, though I often forgot to do this, and to label your moments so they can be organized into different categories.
