Antho’s user profiles, called “anthologies,” are horizontally organized, with posts ordered based on the chronology of the events. Viewers of the anthology can scroll laterally on the post container, to reveal more posts of that user. The displayed posts are a combination of both user-authored stories and stories written by others about the user. The idea is that both the stories written by a given user and about that given user together make up the greater life story of that user.
Anthologies also feature the person's photo, their full name, and the number of stories the person contributed.
Users can also scroll vertically on each individual post, allowing them to review the overall content of the post (the entire photo or the length of the post, for example) before clicking through to view the post by itself, with a larger photo and more legible type.
Antho’s story posts contain the date of the event, the title for the event, the ability to appreciate the post with a simple “love button,” and the content (story and image) of the post itself. The story posts were ordered not by date posted, but by date the event happened — unique at that time in the world of social media.
The bottom of the post includes information about the author (image and name), when he posted the story, and, if the viewer is also the author or subject of the post, options to edit or delete. People can also choose to open up the commenting feature down below.
From the anthology page, users can also click on the “Comment” link of an individual story post to open up the post with comments (and commenting form) displayed. When users click elsewhere on the individual story post, the commenting feature on the story post is not automatically displayed, to better preserve the story’s aesthetic similarities to a work of art displayed in a museum. There are no guest comments under a Van Gogh or Monet; the work stands on its own, clutter- and commentary-free.
