#World Wide Minute 2019

February 10th, 2019
Hello All,

World Wide Minute 2019 is fast approaching! This event is hosted on Facebook by former 365 member @westcoastwallis and I will obviously be helping to kick things off/keep track of things here on 365.

For anyone not familiar the run down is simple:

This is an ONLINE only event.
Stop what you're doing on March 15th, 2019, at 5:47pm in YOUR TIME ZONE (please disregard start time on the event info - facebook forces you to enter a time, and doesn't switch it up according to time zones) take a look around you, and take a photo of what you see!
Then, upload your photo to your 365 profile (and the Facebook EVENT PAGE https://www.facebook.com/events/188368895110828/ if you have Facebook and would like to participate there as well) with the following information:

*Your name
*Your country
*Your town, city, or ville (optional)
*A little info about the photograph you're sharing (optional)

This year's hashtag is #wwm2019, please include in your tags so that all photos submitted can be easily viewed (please use the hashtag in your 365 profile tag section as well as if posting on Facebook.) Feel free to share on any social media, but the main event will be over on Facebook.

Any questions, feel free to tag me in a comment and I will help the best I can. I will also be posting with any relevant updates/reminders etc.

Cool idea but I think you mean 2019?

Thanks so much for catching that typo! I edited my original post.

Thank you! I’ve set myself a reminder 🙃

Thanks Melissa, I have set a reminder.

WWM is such a fun event ...It's always fascinating to see what people all over the world are doing at 5:47 pm in their time zone! Is there an optional theme this year?
February 11th, 2019
Sounds like fun! I've marked my calendar.
February 11th, 2019
Stay tuned as an optional theme has not been announced as of yet. I will reply to here as soon as it is.

@mej2011 yay! Glad we’re going to do it again!
February 11th, 2019
I have put a reminder in my phone!
February 11th, 2019
@mej2011 Thanks!

Thanks for the reminder!! I missed it last year, after participating in 2015, 2016 and 20017. Hopefully I'll get back on it this time.

Here is a list of F.A.Q's. Theme yet to be announced.

As requested here is a set of FAQ's for your perusal. Please don't hesitate to touch base with me if you have any further questions not answered here :)


1 - Is it only 5:47pm Vancouver time?
- No, it is 5:47pm in whatever time zone you happen to exist in at that moment.

2 - Do I have to post the photo at 5:47 pm as well?
- No, just take the photo and post it when you get the chance!

3 - Where do I post the photo?
- Please post your photo on the event wall.

4 - Can I post a REALLY good photo that I took at a completely different time?
- You are completely on your honour here, but no, the photo must be taken at 5:47pm, in order to "share" a moment with the world.

5 - Can I invite friends? Or share the event?
- Yes! Please do! The more the merrier!

6 - Is there any way you can organize the photos so that they're easier to look through afterwards?
- Unfortunately not, I have tried a few different methods in other groups and this seems to be the best way. It can be a bit of a pain to scroll through hundreds of photos and conversations afterwards, but I've yet to find a better method.

7 - Can I post ranty political stuff with my photo?
- Pleeeease don't. This is not the time nor the place. This event is all about positivity, inclusiveness, and connection. We'd like to keep it so.

8 - Can I photoshop or touch up my photo?
- Absolutely! It's your moment, do whatever you feel best represents it.

9 - Can you make a slideshow of ALL the photos afterwards?
- Sorry, I just can't. It takes me AGES to make the small slideshow with about 50 select images afterwards. I can't even imagine how long it would take me to do all of them!

10 - How do I increase my odds of getting in the slideshow?
- It's fairly random, but your odds of getting into it are better if you're from a "rare" country (one that doesn't have a lot of participants) or if you stick with the "theme" (to be announced)

11- Is there a theme this year?
- Sort of, but it's optional and yet to be announced.

12 - Do I have to be a photographer to participate?
- Absolutely not!! This is event is open to everyone, everywhere.

I think that's it - please let me know if you have any more questions and I'll do my best to answer them! Have fun!!

@westcoastwallis has posted the theme for this year over on the event's Facebook page and since it's a lot, I thought I would just link it here: https://www.facebook.com/events/188368895110828/permalink/345881176026265/

I'm in!
March 14th, 2019
I want to be in, but I don’t do Facebook! Can I still take part? Where do I post my picture please?
I dont know what the theme is but it would be interesting as I will at the Brownie Unit that I run at the time!

I'm in. Love train should be manageable - maybe.

Hi Angela!
You can ABSOLUTELY still participate, just post your photo here on 365 as you would any other day, EXCEPT I ask that you place #wwm2019 in the tag section of your entry, this way I can track all of the entries. The theme is inspired by the song "Love Train" by the O' Jays. Lyrical video can be seen here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kQvmCzILBfE interpret as you see fit.
