School yearbooks take unique step into social media


“I like ReplayIt because you can upload photos from anywhere, anytime,” said Isaac Gonzales, PHS senior and El Granito staff member. “I’ve told friends around school to upload photos when I see them taking pictures on campus or at school events.”

ReplayIt is a secure platform that allows everyone in the PHS community to be more visible to each other in an environment where content is reviewed before being posted on the site, a password-protected environment. Students can safely scroll through the timeline of the school year, viewing the photos that they, their friends, and their parents have uploaded.

ReplayIt differs from sites like Facebook and Flickr in that it was designed specifically for schools and offers a unique, custom-designed experience for each school, Jostens says.

“ReplayIt by Jostens is the first school image-sharing site that brings photos, videos, and ultimately the yearbook to where students are—the digital age,” said Mike Wolf, director of yearbook marketing for Jostens. “ReplayIt continues Jostens’ leadership of the evolution of the yearbook tradition to ensure every student can personalize, share, and remember their school experiences. We are excited to see how schools use ReplayIt as a tool to connect more students and build the story of their school year, together.”

The Porterville High School ReplayIt site is available without charge to the entire PHS community. It can be found at www.ReplayIt.com and can be used for uploading favorite pictures taken throughout the year—whether they are school shots or moments captured from free time.
