OurStory is designed more as a way for a person to create their own personal timeline, their life story, augmented with images, videos, links, etc.Images can be uploaded from your computer or imported from a Yahoo image search or from flickr. YouTube videos can also be used (the free version limits the number of videos)

The publish timelines can be shared, embedded into other sites. You can also invite friends and family members to be co-authors, so it might be used as a collaboration tool. It also features a collection of Questions or story prompts that are useful for helping you decided what to add to your own story.

But OurStory could also be easily used to create a story based on when events happened.
