Path Network Announces “Stacks” Proceeds To Sort Your Photos For You

Filed as News on May 23, 2011 8:33 pm

Path Logo and SloganMobile social networking company Path on Monday announced a new feature which helps users auto-sort their photos for easier in-depth browsing.

Known as “Stacks” the new program arranges each users uploaded photos by “people, places and things” using the users own tags as the blueprint for that organization.

Once organized the three most popular tagged topics in each of those three categories are then displayed on the users profile then simply tap on a stack and the photos inside of it are revealed in a standard photo album setup.

As an example, if you take a vacation to Las Vegas one of your “Places” stacks might realize three photos from “Las Vegas” making it one of your more popular tags and therefore creating a “Las Vegas” stack.

The program is self-learning which means you can go back to Las Vegas three or four times and your Vegas stack will continue to update with more photos from Las Vegas as long as you tag those photos with that “Las Vegas” term.

Path explained the program in a company blog post:

Now, every moment you add to your Path is automatically collected, stacked, and organized neatly on your Profile. With every person, place, or thing you tag, each moment automatically organizes itself into a Stack to be easily accessed and relived, anytime. Telling stories with Path has never been easier.

The company hopes that users will use the Stacks option to gain a better understanding of their friends and family’s “personal interests, preferences, and tastes.

You can also now access Stacks from the action bar to the left of any moment.

Here’s a closer look at Path Stacks in action:
