1. A method implemented on one or more computing devices connected via a communications network, the method comprising:

  • by the one or more computing devices, determining a unique user identifier for a first user of the communications network;

    by the one or more computing devices, receiving a naming input initiated by the first user on one of the one or more computing devices, the naming input including descriptive naming information about the first user;

    responsive to receiving the naming input initiated by the first user, storing an association between the unique user identifier of the first user and the descriptive naming information in memory accessible to the one or more computing devices;

    storing a unique digital media identifier for an item of digital media accessible to the one or more computing devices in memory accessible to the one or more computing devices;

    by the one or more computing devices, receiving an associating input initiated by a second user of the communications network, the associating input initiated on one of the one or more of the computing devices, the second user being different than the first user, the associating input indicating an association of the first user with the item of digital media;

    responsive to receiving the associating input initiated by the second user, storing an association between the unique user identifier for the first user and the unique digital media identifier for the item of digital media, the association determined from the associating input initiated by the second user;

    transmitting display data for presentation on a graphical user interface on a computing device of a viewing user, the display data indicating the association between the first user and the item of digital media such that a graphical display of the display data in the graphical user interface includes;

    (i) the descriptive naming information included in the naming input initiated by the first user,(ii) information determined from the associating input initiated by the second user, and(iii) an element configured to provide a prompt to the viewing user to add an association between the first user and the viewing user;

    by the one or more computing devices, receiving an input initiated by the viewing user indicating a request to add the association between the first user and the viewing user; and

    responsive to receiving the input initiated by the viewing user, storing the association between the first user and the viewing user in memory accessible to the one or more computing devices.
