Who is MyStory.me? Campus für Christus Schweiz is responsible for MyStory.me in Switzerland. MyStory.me is owned by Campus für Christus Schweiz and is offered by Jesus.net” partners in different countries.
How do I get an invitation code? To get an Invitation code fill out the short form on the registration page. Write a brief reason as to why you want to create a profile on MyStory.me.
Can I view different language profiles? At any point, simply use the search function to find more detail.
What is the difference between private and public? Each profile is by default set to “private”. In this mode, any search on the website will not display your profile. Also, it does not appear under “Recent Stories”. It cannot be found by any search engine (Google, etc). There is no sharing option for Facebook. Only with your direct URL (www.mystory.me/nickname) can people visit your profile. Note: If you share the URL via your MyStory.me Card or in a social network, of course, your readers see the URL and could pass it along to others. In the Public Mode your profile appears in any MyStory.me website search and will also appear in other sections on the website. Also, Google and other search engines can find your profile.
What are the categories? Before writing your story consider building it around one theme that your experience before or with Jesus reveals. For example: Abuse, Loneliness, Anger, Forgiveness, Peace, etc. There is a note to help on your profile page (Edit Story). Every story has to be classified in at least one category. We understand that your story may not exactly fit a category. Choose one which is closest from the category list anyway. We hope to expand the categories. You are limited to choosing three categories at the most.
What is the purpose of the MyStory.me Card? The MyStory.me Card is the key to the effective use of this tool. Just having your story online will not draw others to read it. Those with whom you connect need to know about it. In addition to sharing it with your online social networks, use the MyStory.me Card to tell your offline contacts about your profile. You can order personalised MyStory.me Cards which come printed with your unique website address (www.MyStory.me/nickname)
Can I add a separate video in “The Message” section? No. For technical reasons it is currently not possible to link to your own video. However, we are trying to offer a wide variety of videos so you can choose one you most identify with.
Can I create a group or join a group? At the moment it is not possible to create groups or join a group. But we plan this function for the next step.
What options do I have to share my personal profile? The first and most important option is to order your personalized MyStory.me Cards and pass it on to those you speak with. Next you can share it online by posting your profile on Facebook, Twitter and Google+. Of course you can also spread it through a direct link as part of your e-mail signature and on your voicemail answer. There are no limits.
