Can I collaborate with other users when creating a space on distantHere?

Yes, of course - if for example, you wish to prepare a birthday gift or mark a special occasion for someone by collaborating with others, you can share a link with them so that they can login and create content. 

Once your project is finished, you can create a link and share it with the people that you wish.


Can I create multiple pages under one account, eg. for myself and for other family members?

You can create pages for yourself and for others under one account name. For example, if you want to help a grandparent with creating their own page because they are hindered from using digital media to setup their own account, you can do this using your login credentials to create a distantHere page for a loved one.
